WHAT CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:

 

·       ATTENTION CANDIDATES:  Please confine your statements to no more than 250 words.  If they run longer, they will be edited.

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Christine Jones: Today is Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s birthday. As the Sheriff of Maricopa County, he has worked hard to reduce crime, strengthen law enforcement, and fight illegal immigration. For too long we’ve had a derelict federal government that has neglected its duty to secure our borders and enforce our nation’s immigration laws. Fortunately, Sheriff Joe has taken up the slack and helped perform the job the federal government refuses to do. I commend him for his work to protect Arizona. Please take a moment to watch my video thanking Sheriff Joe for his leadership and join me in wishing him a happy birthday!

 

·       Martha McSally Campaign Manager Weston Mckee in response to a poll released by House Majority PAC. "It's no surprise that Ron Barber is relying on Nancy Pelosi and her liberal Washington allies to mislead voters in Arizona. Without releasing their methodology, these numbers are meaningless. How can we trust Ron Barber's personal hit group, which has already dropped $350,000 in attack-ads in a seat they are desperate to hold onto?"  A poll released earlier this year showed McSally leading Barber 45%-42%.

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs: The Border Patrol's decision to relocate thousands of illegal aliens from Texas to Arizona, many of them minors, is the result of a confluence of factors - a "perfect storm" - that flaunts the rule of law and federal policy requiring orderly and legal immigration.  Primary responsibility rests with the Mexican government which has failed to secure its southern border with Central America and ignored, or worse yet, condoned the massive wave of migrants led by human smugglers ("coyotes") across the interior of Mexico and into the U.S. via the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas."The Mexican government's failure to secure its southern border and insistence on an 'open border' with our country, and its failure to interdict both illegal immigration and drug smuggling, has created a national security crisis in our country and state," Riggs said.  Riggs, a former U.S. Congressman and member of the House Appropriations Committee, wants sanctions imposed against Mexico by eliminating all U.S. taxpayer-funded foreign aid to Mexico except for drug intervention.  U.S. foreign aid to Mexico was estimated at $316 Million in 2012.
"The appropriate response to the huge influx of illegal aliens should have been to use federal and state (National Guard) military assets to transport the immigrants back to the border for surrender to Mexican government authorities,” Riggs said.  "Mexico, in turn, could then decide whether to assimilate the immigrants or return them to Central America, but our country and state cannot be a dumping ground for massive illegal immigration by migrants moving from Central America through Mexico."

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey: I’m proud to release a new web video this week highlighting support from veterans across the state. Their commitment to this country and Arizona is exceptional. These brave men and women have fought for our country and deserve our support always, but now they need it more than ever before. As governor, I will do everything in my power — whether it’s reliable and responsible healthcare or growing the economy to provide more jobs — to ensure our veterans have every opportunity to thrive after they’ve left service. In the video, U.S. Army veteran Tony Saputo talks about the importance of having a plan: “When you're in the military, you've got to have a plan. You've got to execute that plan and make it work.” I couldn’t agree more. In fact, I often say that a plan that isn’t written down is a daydream – it’s something I learned at Procter & Gamble and I apply it everyday. As CEO of Cold Stone Creamery, I had a plan to build the business into a successful brand that is loved around the world. I want to do the same for Arizona, which is why I have a plan to get there. The Roadmap to Opportunity and Freedom details my policy agenda that I believe will lead Arizona to a more prosperous future. With your help, we will make this state stronger than ever and a more secure, supportive environment for all its citizens. Please share this video and my plan and friends.

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Scott Smith completed a weeklong tour of rural hospitals across Arizona to learn more about their challenges and to see firsthand the quality care they deliver to their communities. After meeting with staff at health centers in Prescott and Yuma, Mayor Smith talked about his continued support for Medicaid Restoration. "For rural communities like Prescott and Yuma, Medicaid Restoration was critical to helping their hospitals continue to provide quality service," stated Smith. "Protecting rural hospitals was one of the reasons I have always supported Medicaid Restoration. My opponents, however, would put the health of rural hospitals in jeopardy simply to make a partisan point. Arizonans are tired of political games that focus on self-interested politicians. We need leaders to make tough decisions and put the well-being of Arizonans first and that's why I support Governor Brewer's Medicaid Restoration Plan." As the only Republican candidate who supports Governor Brewer's Medicaid Restoration Plan, Smith will protect rural hospitals and continue to ensure rural communities have access to quality health care.  www.votescottsmith.com.

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs attributes the "rush the border" surge to the policies of the Obama Administration that encourage amnesty.  He strongly disagrees with President Obama's use of executive orders to grant amnesty and legalize illegal immigration by decree, which Obama calls "deferred action" and "parole in place."  Riggs criticized amnesty advocates like his opponent Scott Smith, who on June 27, 2013, while the volunteer president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, issued a statement praising the immigration reform legislation passed by the Senate last year containing a "path to citizenship."  Smith said the bill was "consistent with the adopted policy of the U.S. Conference of Mayors."  Arizona's U.S. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake were two of the so-called "Gang of 8" senators who proposed the legislation including the citizenship provision." The failure to secure our border and enforce immigration laws, coupled with the amnesty policies enacted by the Obama Administration and advocated by others, have created an incentive for illegal immigration and human smuggling into the U.S., enabled by the Mexican government," Riggs said.  "I'm the only candidate for Governor with both military and law enforcement experience.  I'll make securing the border and public safety, the most important responsibility of state government, my top priority, and I will always put the needs of Arizonans first.
