Only in Arizona

Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Al Melvin Knows of No Arizonan Who Discriminates

In a jaw-dropping interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Al Melvin tells Cooper that he should move from New York to Arizona where "we're more people friendly here."

And, Melvin, who rewrote Arizona's history during his interview with Cooper, also said to a national audience: "I don't know of anybody in Arizona who would discriminate against a fellow human being."

Is there nothing in Arizona's history that would call to his mind any discriminatory attitudes? Nothing?
