A Case Study in the Polarized Mid-term Politics of Recession - Panel 2

Arizona is in the spotlight. The fast-growing state has witnessed one of the more pronounced real-estate implosions anywhere; a state-federal conflict over border security and immigration enforcement; the distressed closure of public amenities and a spirited primary challenge to the Republican Party's most recent presidential candidate. The state's reality defies stereotype, however, as Arizonans have also provided a sanctuary to thousands of Iraqi and other refugees; passed a ballot measure to raise money for education and funded one of the nation's most ambitious statewide "clean election" laws. The story of Arizona is emblematic of the nation's broader effort to navigate hard times, as the state doesn't have a monopoly on cultural anxieties around immigration, money woes or the ideological polarization that increasingly makes it seem like most R's and D's are standing on opposite sides of a grand canyon. http://www.newamerica.net/events/2010/grand_canyon_state_of_mind
