Rodney Glassman, former Democratic Tucson City Councilman, U.S. Senate candidate and perennial candidate who's interested in any office he can find, resigned his seat on the Council to become the Democratic nominee running against U.S. Sen. John McCain in 2010 (spoiler: he lost). Rodney also ran for Maricopa County assessor in 2020, but fell short in the Republican primary. Glassman had unsuccessfully lobbied to be appointed to that seat earlier in the year. Over the years, Glassman has transformed himself from his early political attempts as a progressive Tucson Democratic ally of U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, to become a darling of the most conservative Maricopa County Republicans.

"Politics can make for strange bedfellows. In Arizona's attorney general race, that has come in the form of Jewish candidate Rodney Glassman and Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz, who has aligned himself with an outspoken antisemite. Glassman, one of the Republican candidates running in the Aug. 2 primary, was endorsed by the six-term congressman who currently is representing the Grand Canyon State's 4th district. And on Saturday, Glassman held a fundraiser featuring Gosar at the American Legion post in Prescott."
