·       Secretary Of State Candidate Wil Cardon points out that “Joe Biden landed in Phoenix on his ‘taxpayer-funded jet’ to help raise money for far-left liberals in Arizona, including those who seek to undermine the integrity of our elections. This isn't surprising. Just a few days ago, Joe Biden said he saw ‘hatred’ in laws requiring someone to show an ID before they vote. Of course, we all know this is a commonsense measure designed to protect the integrity of our elections, but leftists like Joe Biden are going all out to attack these laws because they know they make it more difficult for them to manipulate the outcome of our elections.”


·       CD8 Candidate Clair Van Steenwyk Aka Van The Radio Man who defines himself  as a ‘Constitutional Republican Conservative’, says, “I don't agree with J. Turley on some of his political views, I do believe his point on the Congress just sitting by while President Obama moves us into a one rule government is just one of the reasons I'm running and wish others would do the same.”   See: Jonathan Turley: We Are Now At A Constitutional Tipping Point In Our System


·       An Upbeat Attorney General Candidate Mark Brnovich writes, “My campaign is moving at full speed and I am enjoying every minute of it!  I can hardly believe that today is already the last day of February.”


·       Rep. David Schweikert’s statement on supporting the Consumer Financial Protection and Soundness Improvement Act (H.R. 3193). This bill would streamline the rule making process of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).The measure would allow the Financial Stability Oversight Council to set aside any CFPB rules that it believes undermine financial institutions. It effectively replaces the CFPB director with a bipartisan five-member panel and separates the CFPB from the Federal Reserve. “I support this bill and the efforts the Small Business Committee is taking to consider the impacts the CFPB’s actions have on small businesses,” said Schweikert.“Without reform to the CFPB, our community banks will see their regulatory compliance costs continue to escalate, making it even more difficult for our nation's small businesses to expand their businesses and grow the economy.”


·       AZ Speaker Andy Tobin, a candidate in the battle against Dems for the US House seat in CD1, said, “…We are well on our way to defeating Ann Kirkpatrick. It is critical that we send a battle-tested, proven conservative to Washington with Arizona solutions:

·       I led to pass the largest tax cuts in Arizona’s history while simultaneously passing the state’s largest spending cuts.

·       I authored and passed Arizona’s ban on partial-birth abortion.

·       Even while the President was attacking Arizona from Washington, I voted for and defended SB1070 and passed E-Verify.

·       I voted against ObamaCare.  I even sued the federal government over it.

·       I voted for constitutional carry and have a “100% ‘A’ Rating” from the National Rifle Association..


·       In The Meantime, Andy Kwasmann, Tobin’s Primary Competitor For The CD1 seat, is crossing the state at a rapid rate, talking to numerous Republican groups. Kwasmann’s Schedule:

·        Army-Experiencing-Character-Problems Secretary of Defense Hagel and others in the Obama administration are expressing concern over a recent study showing that the U.S. Army is experiencing the highest rate of ethical lapses, moral breaches, and character problems in its history.  Apparently instances of cheating, lying, stealing, sexual harassment, extra-marital affairs, drug use, and other character-related issues are on the rise in today’s politically-correct, culturally-tolerant, gender-neutral, gay-friendly Army.   It is hardly surprising that the Army is experiencing these problems.  What is surprising is that Secretary of Defense Hagel and liberals in Congress don’t understand why such problems are on the rise.
