TUCSON - Last
Sunday's Get out the Vote" concert at Hotel
Congress featured local bands ¡Caray! and
Sunduster and a plethora of politicos.
Among them were
Jennifer DuVal, wife of Democratic
gubernatorial candidate Fred DuVal and Rep.
Ron Barber. During his speech Barber
said of his Republican opponent, Martha
"My opponent stands
with the extremists that are working to
prevent a woman from being able to make
health care choices for her and her family.
She told the Center for Arizona Policy in a
survey that she opposes a woman's right to
choose, even in instances of rape, incest,
or when the health of the mother is at
serious risk. And she opposes federal
funding for Planned Parenthood and other
women's health organizations that so many
Southern Arizona families count on.
On equality, again,
my opponent and I stand on opposite sides of
the issue. I support marriage equality. I
believe that if two people love each other
and want to commit to each other, the way my
wife Nancy and I have for 47 years, that
they should be able to do that. That's now
the law in Arizona and we must keep it that
Arizona, we stand by our values. That's
why I am fighting to preserve a woman's
right to make her most personal health
care decisions and to ensure that all
Southern Arizonans have the right to
marry the one they love.
But my opponent
says marriage should only be between a
man and a woman, and she supports a
constitutional amendment to ban same sex
Also speaking at
the event were LD-10 state Reps. Bruce
Wheeler and Stefanie Mach with state
Sen. David Bradley, Rep. Demion Clinco
and LD-9 candidates Victoria Steele and
Dr. Randy Friese along with TUSD
candidate Jen Darland.
