“It’s too late to leave as a leader,” said Allerano. “We are confused.”

“Now, after the fact, they are fighting with Luckus up and swinging out,” he said. “They weren’t there before. They didn’t offer us daily updates when we really needed them.”

Under Ward’s leadership, the Republicans lost both the Democratic US Senate and the Arizona Secretary of State and other Secretaries of State.

Today, the party is divided by what many members call a “civil war,” with Ward and its allies fighting against Governor Doug Ducey and others. The agenda of the state meeting includes a condemnation of Ducey, the second governor of the Republican Party.

Allerano said the party was moving in the wrong direction and narrowed when it needed to expand. The party “should pick someone like me who has a broad, inclusive and inclusive message,” he said.

“The party is always demanding more Latino Americans,” he said. “This is your chance, man-injured warrior, combat veteran, Spanish-speaking Latino.”

Democratic leader of the new Republican Party, Pima

Local political parties are starting this year with new leadership.

The Pima County Democratic Party has elected Bonnie Hydler as chairman. She will replace Allison Jones, who served a two-year term and did not run for reelection.
