Much like Mitt Romney, Jesse Kelly is now trying to shake the ol' Etch-a-Sketch and deny the more radical positions he's taken as he fought his way through GOP primaries. He doled out the red meat to the groundlings to get the nominations in 2010 and the 2012 special, now he's having to eat it.
Barber has called out Kelly's stated intention to "lower and eventually eliminate the minimum wage". Kelly is trying to simply deny he ever said it. Unfortunately for him, and fortunately for all the workers earning at or near the minimum wage who might be tempted to vote for Kelly, video exists.
Own up Mr. Kelly. You are a tool for the plutocrats trying to turn American workers into serfs whom they can pay whatever pittance they wish. Unfortunately, 2 out of every 3 Americans disagree with you, Mr. Kelly. They want the minimum wage raised. A lot. Even Romney agrees with raising the minimum wage! Far from decreasing and eliminating the minimum wage, as Kelly wants, Arizona indexes its minimum wage to inflation.
Kelly is clearly out of step with America and the voters of Arizona.
