PHOENIX - Yesterday Rep. Lieberman sat down with the host of Politics Unplugged, Dennis Welch, to discuss his candidacy for Governor and Arizona's future.
Asked why voters should choose him as Arizona's next governor instead of his opponents, Rep. Lieberman stated, "Fundamentally I feel like right now more than ever our politics are broken and our leaders aren't stepping up to the challenge [...] If you were to take the names off of all seven candidates running on both sides of the aisle and look at their relative experience, you would select my resume for a job this big and I'm ready to do it on day one."
