It's a name from Arizona's recent past, a man who for a short time dominated the state's political scene, former state Senate President Russell Pearce. He was ousted in a recall election, tried and failed in a comeback, but he has returned, and this time he is not a candidate.

Jim Small of the Arizona Capitol Times wrote about Pearce earlier this week.
