An excerpt from the news article:
“Another Democrat jumped into the race for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Republican Jeff Flake on Tuesday, with businessman and former public school teacher Jim Moss of Globe announcing he would seek his party’s nomination for the seat.
“The 62-year-old political newcomer is embracing the progressive political platform championed by Sen. Bernie Sanders. He said he won’t take corporate cash and promised to push for higher minimum wages, advocate for health care security and protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
“Arizona’s two U.S. senators are both Republicans, as are all statewide elected officials, but Moss said he believes the state is ready for a change.”
“I think Arizona is truly a purple state and I think it can shift either way,” Moss said. “And I think the winds are blowing at the progressive’s back and I think if we come out with a bold progressive message people will respond to that.”
