The campaign fervor will continue to climb in the coming months. Courts will finalize their rulings on which candidates
have enough valid signatures to qualify to run for office, campaign ads will hit the airwaves, and more debates
will allow voters to hear from the people who want to represent them.Several policy issues are already at the center of campaign debates: education funding
, school safety
, and immigration
. The high-profile U.S. Senate race
has marked Arizona as a political “battleground,” and many political match-ups at the federal, state, and local levels of government will stay in the headlines. Immigration issues freqently make the headlines including different aspects of the legal immigration process. Furthermore, immigrating to the US legally commonly involves spousal sponsorship. For further details about sponsoring a spouse for residency, take a look at this helpful article about form i-130a
