Minutemen Defeated

Ernesto Portillo Jr. writes: Randy Graf and the Republicans were not the only ones to get a thumping in Tuesday's election. The Minutemen were thumped, too. Despite the Minutemen's all-out effort to get Republican Graf into the congressional seat vacated by fellow Republican Jim Kolbe, their man lost his bid — in a Republican-dominated district — to Democrat Gabrielle Giffords.
