From MSNBC this morning:

For Rev. Sharpton and Mr. Deutch’s information, Arizona adopted MLK Day in 1992. Even Time agrees:
Most famously, all three Arizona House Republicans including current Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain, voted against the bill in ’83. The state did not vote in favor of recognizing the holiday until 1992, not only rejecting pleas from Reagan and then Arizona governor Evan Mecham but also losing the NFL’s support when the league moved Super Bowl XXVII from Sun Devil Stadium, in Tempe, to California in protest.
But, hey, why let the facts stand in the way of a good smear of a largely Republican state?
