Janet Napolitano

Surrogates for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have been making frequent appearances in Arizona in recent weeks — including Donald Trump Jr., First Lady Michelle Obama and the vice-presidential nominees.

But yesterday saw a stand-in with deep Arizona connections: former Gov. Janet Napolitano, who was here on behalf of Clinton. Napolitano was popular in the state, easily winning re-election in 2006. But when she left for the Obama administration, Jan Brewer became governor, leading to the passage of some legislation, including SB 1070, that deeply bothered many Democrats.

To learn where Arizona Democrats stand on Napolitano now, we talked with Mario Diaz of Mario E. Diaz and Associates.
