i assume this is only just one string, and that "Santa mora" is city, AZ is state, and the number after AZ is then

>>> s="Santa Mora, AZ 86444"

>>> splitted=s.split(",")

>>> splitted

['Santa Mora', ' AZ 86444']

>>> city=splitted[0]

>>> splitted2=splitted[1].split()

>>> splitted2

['AZ', '86444']

>>> state,zip=splitted2[0],splitted2[1]

>>> state,zip

('AZ', '86444')

>>> s="Santa Mora, AZ 86444"

>>> splitted=s.split(",")

>>> splitted

['Santa Mora', ' AZ 86444']

>>> city=splitted[0]

>>> splitted2=splitted[1].spli

>>> splitted2

['AZ', '86444']

>>> state,zip=splitted2[0],spl

>>> state,zip

('AZ', '86444')
