State Rep. Ruben Gal­lego’s (D) cam­paign has been fo­cused on turnout among his dis­trict’s his­tor­ic­ally re­li­able voters, and he said his style as a cam­paign­er and as a can­did­ate would be dif­fer­ent than re­tir­ing Rep. Ed Pas­tor’s (D). “I don’t think the con­gress­man who has been rep­res­ent­ing this area has ever really in­ves­ted in turnout,” Gal­lego said. “I would be join­ing the voices of many oth­er Latino con­gress­man and elec­ted of­fi­cials who want ob­vi­ously want to see im­mig­ra­tion re­form passed. My goal would also be to bring the big­ger is­sues that are also im­port­ant to the Latino com­munity.” (Roll Call)

Gal­lego faces Mari­copa County Su­per­visor Mary Rose Wil­cox (D) in the Demo­crat­ic primary on Tues­day.

PHOENIX MAY­OR SUP­PORTS GAL­LEGO. Gal­lego an­nounced Phoenix May­or Greg Stan­ton (D) “called me to of­fer his sup­port of our cam­paign for Con­gress.” Gal­lego said Stan­ton was set to at­tend a cam­paign event over the week­end. (re­lease)
