· LD15 House Candidate Heather Carter: Yesterday, at Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare, we celebrated Governor Brewer signing my cost-parity bill for oral anticancer drugs. HB 2078 is one of the bills I was proudest to sponsor last session. Beginning January 1, 2016, health insurance companies will not be allowed to charge cancer patients different amounts for oral treatment versus injections or those administered intravenously. Now instead of being financially pressured into one type of treatment, patients can consult with their doctors and families and make healthcare decisions based on the patient’s individual circumstances. With the passage and signing of HB2078, I’m very pleased that our elected officials did the right thing to stand up and represent all cancer patients. By requiring insurance plans that already cover cancer treatments to treat all cancer drugs equally, it is now up to patients working with their doctors to decide what is the best available course of treatment for their condition. This also opens up a world of affordable options for rural cancer patients who don’t live near a treatment center. HB 2078 will grant patients more access, more affordability, and most importantly, more choice in selecting their treatments.
· Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey: Today, I'm excited to announce the release of my latest TV ad, which focuses on my approach to immigration enforcement and border security. Watch it here. The Obama administration has failed to protect Arizona's border, and the transportation of thousands of illegal immigrants from Texas to Arizona is inhumane and unacceptable. He has dithered for far too long while this crisis has spun out of control, all to Arizona's detriment. In a Ducey administration, border security will be a priority and I'll fight back with every resource at my command to secure our border. We'll get this done. If Barack Obama won't do the job, Arizonans will.
· Gubernatorial Candidate Christine Jones: With less than 8 weeks until Primary Election Day, Christine Jones has the momentum! She is earning strong support everywhere she goes and it’s clear that her conservative vision is resonating with Arizonans. I wanted to pass along some news highlights so you can read for yourself what others are saying about Christine and the campaign. click here to get all the latest news from the campaign trail.
· CD1 Candidate Andy Kwasman: He did it again! Despite what the facts say - Andy Tobin is still being dishonest about his record. Click here to watch Tobin (3:55 into the video) try to hide his vote for Common Core (HB 2047, 2013). Someone who has this much trouble telling the truth does not belong in Washington - Andy Tobin simply cannot be trusted. Watch the full Politics Unplugged debate at this link (check below the screen for all three segments.) You will see that I am the proven conservative candidate in District 1. We have a packed schedule of events in July. Click here to view our July calendar and invite your friends to join our team.I hope you and your family have a great Independence Day! Look for us in Show Low, Flagstaff, and Marana on the 4th and stop by and say hello. If you would like a yard sign or a bumper sticker, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for your support and for working to keep our country great!
· CD2 candidate Martha McSally: Yesterday, I had an op-ed in the Arizona Daily Star about the failure of the federal government to secure our border. We have dedicated men and women serving in Border Patrol in our community, but they are asked to implement a flawed strategy from their bosses in Washington, D.C. To read my op-ed, click HERE. We need a better strategy, leadership, and above all, the political will to get this done. When elected, I will work hard to make sure that these changes get made so our communities are kept safe.
· LD19 Write-In Candidate Joe Hobbs: Republican Party activist Joe Hobbs has filed the required paperwork to run as a Write-In candidate in the LD19 State Senate race. To qualify for the November ballot, he will need to garner write in votes from 136 voters in the Republican primary. “I’m looking forward to the challenge of qualifying for the ballot. We are putting together a great group of volunteers to assist and look forward to taking our message to the voters of LD19,” said Hobbs Joseph.email@example.com Hobbs' Campaign Platform includes the following statements:
· I believe in the greatness of America and the MIRACLE of our Constitution
· I support our Bill of Rights – All Of Them – I will fight for Equality and for the Rule of Law
· I want the best education for our kids, and the choice of how and where that happens
· I want food on our tables – NOW, get big government off our backs, let us work hard
· Jobs, jobs, jobs – right here in LD19, High Tech Jobs with high wages and benefits
As a Write-In Hobbs will be forced to run as a non-participating candidate, which means he is allowed to collect traditional contributions only. Checks must be made payable to Hobbs4AZ, for up to $160 per individual (a single check of $320 per household if both spouses sign the check). A campaign website www.hobbs4az.com will be unveiled shortly. “I’m in it to win it!” declared Hobbs. “The voters of our district deserve better than another do-nothing Democrat who goes to the State Capitol just to vote NO on everything.”
· LD14 House Candidates David Gowan And David Stevens: House Majority Leader David Gowan and State Representative David Stevens announced that they will run as a team in the upcoming 2014 election cycle. Gowan and Stevens, both from Sierra Vista, have been conservative champions in the legislature since their election in 2008. They have received awards from conservative organizations. Most recently, they received the Americans for Prosperity “Friend of the Taxpayer” award; the NFIB “Guardian of Small Business” award; the Arizona Family Project “Friend of the Family” awards, the NRA graded them “A+” on their report card and named “Friends of Mining” by the Arizona Mining Association. They are also staunch advocates for rural Arizona issues including border security, stopping illegal immigration, protecting the agriculture sector, environmental stewardship, protecting private property rights, and protecting Arizona’s military bases. When asked about their team effort, Gowan remarked, “David and I have worked very well together since day one. We’ve shown that we can make a bigger impact for southern Arizona as a team, especially in a Legislature dominated by Maricopa County interests.” Stevens added, “We both bring unique and independent voices to the legislature on a variety of issues but together, we can articulate those issues with a strength that gets heard.” Gowan and Stevens both enjoy prominent positions in the Republican majority, as Gowan is currently the House Majority Leader and may be elected to Speaker of the House by the majority caucus in the next Legislature, and Stevens serves as Chairman of the House Technology and Infrastructure Committee.

· CD2 candidate Shelley Kais: An analysis of federal budget data clearly shows that the influx of children at our country’s southern border has been in the works for several years. Section 462 of the Homeland Security Act and the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2008 authorized the Department of Health and Human Services’ Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program, the purpose of which is to ‘provide care and placement of unaccompanied alien children who are in custody of federal agencies or have been apprehended at the border. Kais’ analysis shows that from 2011 to 2012, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), the parent organization for the UAC program, had a 100-percent spike in the number of children entering the program, resulting in an increase of 78 percent in 2012-2013 and 135 percent for 2013-2014. The ORR’s budget for the UAC provides funding to accommodate 60,000 children in FY 2014. “This program is costing the American taxpayer $868 million in FY 2014, an increase of more than 400 percent since 2012, Since the process often takes a minimum of 18 months to complete, this is further evidence that the invasion of young, illegal immigrants taking place at our border was no accident.” Even though the UAC is requesting the same amount of funding for FY 2015, there is a new twist: the president is requesting a no-year contingency fund. “A no-year contingency appropriation essentially gives the president a blank check since there is no set period during which the bona fide funding need must arise, nor a set period in which the funds must be obligated and disbursed. If I were in Congress, I would not trust the president to use that authority in the best interest of Southern Arizona and America,” she said.
· Gilbert City Council Candidate Victor Petersen: Happy Birthday America. In a famous letter to his wife, John Adams wrote his feelings about the anniversary of American Independence. "I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forever more." Adams continued, "You will think me transported with enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure, that it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom I can see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is more than worth all the means. And that posterity will triumph in that days transaction, even although we should rue it, which I trust in God we shall not." I love America and the founding principles of liberty in the Declaration of Independence. I wish each of you a very safe 4th of July and hope you will join me in reflecting on our responsibility to preserve this precious nation.
· LD 18 House Candidate Jill Norgaard: Wishing everyone a Happy 4th of July celebration as Americans across the nation gather to celebrate the importance of the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. That announcement, to the world, of our intention to be separate from Great Britain represented our desire to have a form of government that would truly represent the will of the people. 238 years later, voters still desire leadership who will represent their best interests. During the past six months, I have been walking precincts and knocking on doors discussing issues with voters. My intention is to represent the voices of those who have offered concerns about the quality of education, the availability of jobs and the size and scope of the Federal government.
I look forward to meeting voters at my booth during the 5th annual Red, White & Boom Festival, July 3rd from 5-10 p.m., Ahwatukee Country Club, 12432 S. 48th St. I enjoyed participating in an LD18 Republican Round Table where voters were seated at the same table as the candidates. It was very encouraging to see so many voters seeking to become informed of their ballot choices. I have a great team who enjoys working together and we would love for you to join us. Campaigns need help in a variety of ways. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Early voting begins in just 4 weeks!
