AZGOP

·       Robert Graham, Chairman Of The Arizona Republican Party, issued the following statement in commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, a historical speech given by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 to dedicate the Gettysburg National Cemetery after a brutal battle during the Civil War. "Lincoln's speech was brief but profound, and it is a solemn reminder that our nation is constantly being tested.  He reminds us that the first principle of our nation's founding is the perpetual challenge to increase our freedom.  As the founder of the Republican Party, Abraham Lincoln boldly proclaimed that the work of the nation he presided over was still unfinished.  And while we have made great progress in these 150 years, the unfinished work of expanding our freedom and recognizing our equality with each other still remains.  I implore all Arizonans to join me in our party's efforts to take up this challenge, to do everything in our power to fight for our liberty and celebrate the principle that all men are created equal."
