Tip to Democrats: Do Not Call for Economic Boycott of Your Own State if You Want to be Re-Elected

Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Arizona) lives in a very blue district where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1. However, he made the unfortunate mistake, for him, of calling for a boycott of his own state in response to the Arizona immigration enforcement law. Now, Grijalva is in a very competitive race with Republican challenger Ruth McClung.

The Politico reported:
Party operatives say there’s increasing concern that the Arizona Democrat’s reelection bid could turn into a “sleeper” race for Republicans after Grijalva — responding to enactment of a tough new immigration law — called for an economic boycott of his own state amid a housing crisis and record unemployment...

And a recent poll, obtained by POLITICO, found that Grijalva and Republican challenger Ruth McClung, a real-life rocket scientist, were in a dead heat, even though Washington prognosticators have declared the deep-blue seat safely Democratic.
