Surprise! It’s October

New York, USA – April 30, 2018: Richard Nixon in Madame Tussauds of New York

By Phil Riske || Senior Reporter/Writer

I’ll always remember waking up in my university dorm room in 1960, and the radio told me John Kennedy had upset Richard Nixon for the presidency. Politically naïve at the time, I wondered how could that possibly happen.

Sixty-two election-years later, I have well learned, yes, Alice, there are surprises in politics.

And wanting more.

Among the most divisive, crude, flawed, expensive and media-frenzey race on record. 

And the vagaries of previous contests for the White House have seeped into our local elections: millions of dollars—dark and visible—dumped into the race for governor to feed an outright political war between two women for that coveted office on the Ninth Floor of the Capitol. 

They can be just as salty-tongued as the next guy.

Political challengers always call for change. This year they have called for reconstruction or reformation of our election system.

Voters are expected to be guided mainly by two issues—abortion and election reform.

The only “October Surprise,” besides coming in November, would be were the candidates who want to put handcuffs on Arizona voters and voting, all found themselves crying in their beer—like Nixon voters in ’60.
