Whitman and Poizner quickly took shots at one another…with former eBay CEO Whitman accusing state Insurance Commissioner Poizner of flip-flopping on his stance over Arizona’s tough new immigration law.
“Just last week he was against the law, now he is for it. And this is the record you have seen. Since Steve Poizner ran for Assembly in 2004 he has changed his position on virtually every important thing.”
But Poizner says he changed his mind because Arizona Governor Jan Brewer made some changes to the bill.
“The way it was originally structured, there was a concern from my point of view about racial profiling. Then just yesterday, the governor signed some amendments, they just amended the law. Now they’ve taken care of, from my point of view, any concerns about racial profiling. I support what’s going on in Arizona.”
Poizner is trying to overcome a double-digit deficit in his race against Whitman before the June 8th primary.
