·       Congressman Paul Gosar: You probably already know that last week House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor (R-VA) became the first sitting Majority Leader to lose in a primary election in the history of the House of Representatives. It was a shocking result that will have a big impact on the direction of Congress. While media pundits spent the past week franticly analyzing the results and predicting what is next in store for the House, Rep. Cantor’s loss reminded me of one simple truth. Our elected leaders cannot forget that they serve the people that elect them. Period. If members of Congress forget that important fact, and fail to remember that they represent the ideas and opinions of their constituents, then they will not be members of Congress for long. That is why I will continue to listen to your ideas and concerns and engage with you on finding solutions to our nation’s biggest challenges. Rep. Cantor made the decision to step down from his position as Majority Leader and on Thursday June 19, the House GOP elected Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to be the new Majority Leader and Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) as the new Majority Whip to replace Kevin McCarthy. Our new leadership has a difficult challenge ahead but I remain optimistic that they can effectively lead the House and I look forward to working with them in order to better hold our elected leaders accountable for their actions.


·       The Alliance Of Principled Conservatives Will Meet At 6 Pm, Wed., June 25 at the Kirk-Bear Canyon Library, 8959 E Tanque Verde Rd., Tucson to Hear Retired U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Beret) and former State Senator (Conservative Pitbull) Frank Antenori's opinion on the Defense Budget, A10 and Davis Monthan AFB. The Alliance will answer questions on the Alliance’s Blacklist of Republicans.   Antenori has a combined 20 years military experience and state legislative experience, including  experience developing new and advanced weapons for the U.S. Military. Antenori's military experience involves dozens of military operations and hundreds of combat missions. As an Army Special Forces (Green Beret) Non-Commissioned Officer, Antenori utilized :  B-1, B-2, and B52 Bombers, the AC-130 Gunship; Armed MQ-1 Predator Drones; F-14, F-16, and F-18 fighters; A-10 Attack Aircraft and Apache helicopters as well as numerous Allied Aircraft including Kuwaiti A-4s, and British RAF Tornados to attack America's enemies. Antenori experience includes targeting for a plethora of guided and unguided munitions including:  PAVEWAY series, JDAM series, Hellfire and Maverick Missiles, Javelin Missiles, and numerous small arms weapons such as the .50 cal. Barrett Sniper Rifle, and the Browning Machine Gun.  Contact:  Alliance


·       Congressman Paul Gosar: This past week, the House of Representatives unanimously passed my sponsored legislation, H.R. 1216, which will designate the Department of Veterans Affairs Vet Center in Prescott, as the “Dr. Cameron McKinley Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Center”. I am proud to see the House recognize the distinguished life and career of Dr. Cam McKinley. Dr. McKinley demonstrated extraordinary service both as a U.S. Marine and as a veteran advocate. Much of his career was spent as Chief Psychologist at the Prescott Veterans Affairs Hospital, a facility in which he played an integral role in having opened. His medical service was nothing short of groundbreaking, improving the lives of countless Arizona veterans while specializing in treating post-traumatic stress disorder.  Dr McKinley strove for exemplary service to his veteran colleagues. We should all follow in his footsteps and challenge ourselves to serve others as he did. The challenge before us as a nation is to provide timely, quality, patient-centered, and patient-friendly care to each and every veteran, just as Dr. McKinley did every day. Naming the Prescott Vet Center after him will remind us of that vital mission. See House floor honoring Dr. McKinley HERE

·       Candidate Yard Signs In Your Neighborhood Are Legal.  The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees your right to free speech, and state law supports homeowners' rights to display political yard signs during election season -- despite HOA rules which may try to restrict your rights. Details on the law are here (toward the end of the document) and it's clear that an HOA cannot enforce sign regulations that are more restrictive than those of the city, town or county. If you are living in an HOA and run into this situation, please visit our Facebook page and tell your side of the story.  AZGOP newsletter.
