·       CD3 candidate Gabby Saucedo-Mercer: It's time to Retire Raul Grijalva. Energy Independence is a National Security issue. We can stop buying foreign oil and depending on countries that are not our true allies, like Saudi Arabia, which is still covertly funding terrorist organizations all over the world. This is oil that will be refined in the US, and not exported to China. The federal government has not created those shovel ready jobs they promised the American people, because this administration and Grijalva don't understand that the private sector is the job creator. The American people are still looking for good jobs, and the voters that I speak to are tired of the government trying to expand unemployment benefits that do not give anybody a sense of security and self-worth. People need and want jobs.  They are tired of being unemployed and under employed with part time work.  Too many people have given up even trying to find a job. The naysayers about the Keystone XL Pipeline argue that there will not be as many jobs as are projected. The Keystone XL project will generate construction jobs, as well as supplier/vendor jobs, and support staff jobs.  Whatever the exact number is, those workers will be off the unemployment rolls. And in Arizona, in CD3/Pima County, in our own backyard, there is a Pipeline Project being resisted in a similar fashion: Arizona-Mexico gas pipeline  


·       Sen Steve Pierce: Priority-Legislation-To-Be-Proud-Of  Since I was first elected to the Senate I have made it a priority to help Arizonans by keeping my priorities in line with my constituents.  I am proud that as of this week the Governor has completed work on all of the legislation on her desk and that many of my priorities are now Arizona Law.  Here is a rundown of a few of my priorities this session.

·       LD11 House Candidate Mark Finchem filed his 741 signatures with the Secretary of State’s office, becoming the first legislative candidate in LD11 to file his signatures. “I have really enjoyed this part of the process,” said Finchem, “There is a great deal of passion among voters to turn our country around and return to a limited government that gets out of our way.  I’m thankful for all of the support I have been receiving and look forward to the rest of the campaign.” Finchem is part of the Conservative Team for State Legislature that includes State Rep Steve Smith and conservative activist Vince Leach.


·       Congressman Matt Salmon: Our veterans have already sacrificed so much for our country, and we cannot let another day pass without ensuring that these men and women are treated as the heroes they are, rather than a burden to unaccountable bureaucrats. That is why I jointly introduced an amendment to the Military Construction/Veterans Affairs Appropriations bill to ensure proper resources are available to investigate this debacle. This amendment passed the House of Representatives and now goes to the Senate. Click here to read more. Click here to watch my floor speech on why this legislation is needed.

·       Congressman Trent Franks regarding the kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian girls by Boko Haram and the failure of former Secretary Clinton to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist organization or state that Boko Haram carried out religiously-motivated violence: "I was heartbroken and deeply anguished to learn of the horrific kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian girls by the Islamist group, Boko Haram.  As the father of a five-year-old daughter, I cannot imagine the pain their parents feel at this moment. Over two years ago, my office was one of the first to call for Boko Haram’s designation on the foreign terrorist organization (FTO) list.  At the time, Boko Haram was systematically attacking Christian churches nearly every Sunday.  Boko Haram has terrorized innocent Nigerians for over a decade and 16,000 Nigerians have tragically lost their lives at the hands of this radically Islamist organization.   Moreover, there were understood links between Boko Haram, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, and al-Shabaab multiple years ago. Hillary Clinton’s State Department was excruciatingly slow to respond to any congressional calls for Boko Haram to be placed on the FTO list.  In fact, Secretary Clinton was counterproductive to any initiative to place Boko Haram on this list and actively worked against our efforts within the U.S. Congress to combat the religiously-motivated violence perpetuated by Boko Haram. I sincerely hope that the State Department will now wake up to the realities of Boko Haram and their clear intension to radicalize Nigeria and create a state fully governed by Sharia law."


·       Congressman Matt Salmon: I came back to Washington fully committed to make tough choices, cut spending and balance our budget. My SOS Initiative continues to bring us one step closer to balancing our budget and establishing a sense of fiscal sanity in Washington. This month, I tackled the EPA’s Science and Technology Account and the National Labor Relations Board—both groups with separately duplicative roles. Click here to view an update on my SOS Initiative. You can track the legislation on my website linked here.


·       CD2 Candidate Martha McSally: Tuesday, the national publication Roll Call named Ron Barber one of the 10 most vulnerable incumbents in the country! This is a big deal, and it couldn't have happened without your hard work. Here's what Roll Call had to say: "Republicans argue that the stars are finally aligning for them in the 2nd District, and the party's recent internal polling showed a deadlocked race. For the first time since 2006, the GOP has a quality candidate, retired Air Force Col. Martha McSally, a seemingly favorable political climate and a willingness to spend in the district." Let's keep this momentum going!

·       CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: It’s clear that Ann Kirkpatrick is not interested in uncovering the truth about the attack on our U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi on September 12, 2012. This marks Kirkpatrick’s latest vote against the interests of her district, state and country. Despite Kirkpatrick’s “no” vote on Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 567, establishing the House Select Committee on Benghazi. Kirkpatrick has repeatedly supported Nancy Pelosi’s left-wing agenda to obfuscate the truth about what happened in Benghazi. It is now clear that she is also part of the cover-up. “The tragic 2012 attacks in Benghazi, which led to the deaths of four Americans, cannot and will not be swept under the rug,” said Andy Tobin. “It is critical that we pry the truth out of the Obama Administration’s grip so that we can pinpoint the failure of leadership and ensure that an attack like this never happens again. The American people have a right to know what happened. We have seen nothing but dishonesty and political spin from this Administration, further shaming the brave sacrifice made by Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.” Tobin Continues, “Ann Kirkpatrick has continually voted against our seniors, our veterans and the best interest of Arizona’s 1st Congressional District. She has gone too far with her latest vote to aid Nancy Pelosi and the Obama Administration in their blatant cover up of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. It matters how and why our diplomats were killed. I will never stop fighting to help uncover the truth about Benghazi.”


·       Congressman Matt Salmon: I teamed up with Senator Mike Lee to introduce bicameral legislation to reform our federal Head Start Program. Even with the best intentions, the federal government has a history of botching programs with a one-size-fits-all approach, and education is no different. Our legislation will give parents, school districts, and states the flexibility needed to make sure that these funds best reflect their will for pre-K programs, with no federal strings attached. When parents and states are given greater flexibility in education, children win. Read more here

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: As Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, I convened two hearings this month. The first was with Chairman Duncan Hunter (CA-50) of the Subcommittee on the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, where we explored ways our government can move toward a more cohesive and effective multi-agency strategy to protect our national security interests related to transnational drug smuggling. Additionally, we held a hearing on the FY 2015 Foreign Affairs Budget focused on how – in tightened budgets – our strategy and policy in the Western Hemisphere must reflect our vital national interests.


·       AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham: Court Agrees: Democrats Manipulated AZ District BoundariesIt may be too little, too late -- but this decision by the federal district court recently concluded that Republicans were right all along when we suspected foul play in redrawing legislative district lines before the 2012 election. We argued Democrats gamed the process and packed registered Republicans into a few districts and spread their fellow Democrats out among many districts to try to unfairly win more seats. The court said, “…We find that some of the commissioners were motivated in part in some of the linedrawing decisions by a desire to improve Democratic prospects in the affected districts.” Robert Robb wrote a good article summarizing the case. Howie Fischer wrote here about a different case involving GOP efforts to bring fairness to the process. We are not going to let this process be abused and we've formed a committee of experts to monitor the next redistricting. – AZGOP newsletter


·       Sen Steve Pierce: Budget-Wrap-Up The Second Regular Session of the Fifty-First Legislature has come to an end and with the last of the bills being signed by the Governor, things have wrapped up.  As always, the budget was a major source of conversation and many hours were spent researching, debating, working and re-working the bill.  The final product focused on K12 and higher education, CPS reform, transportation and forest health.


·       Congressman Matt Salmon: I led a bipartisan letter to the Secretary of Homeland Security requesting additional customs officers come to Arizona. We were successful in securing 170 agents to join our already stretched resources at ports of entry. This highlights the good we can accomplish as our delegation looks for ways to come together to improve our state. We will continue to fight for more resources for Arizona. Read more here.
