Maricopa County cast the second most number of votes for Romney (749,885 with only 602,288 for Obama) of any county in America. Only Los Angeles County cast more votes for Romney (885 thousand but cast 2.2 million for Obama).
Harris County (Houston suburbs) was third at a mere 586,073 thousand for Romney (587,044 for Obama), Orange County fourth at 582,332 (512,440 for Obama) and San Diego County fifth at 532 thousand (652 thousand for Obama). Los Angeles, Harris and San Diego Counties all cast more votes for Obama than for Romney.
So Maricopa County is the largest Republican majority county in America with the largest numerical edge for Romney (147,597) - more than twice the numerical advantage of Orange county - and is second to only Los Angeles in total number of Republican votes.
Maricopa County also fully or partially represents an overwhelming majority of the Republican Caucus at the Legislature (13 Senators and 25 Representatives).
So Team LaFaro leads the country's largest Republican county and has the opportunity to meet their objective - keeping the county Dark Red. It is up to the rest of us to provide the resources necessary to reaching that lofty goal.
