·       AG Candidate Mark Brnovich’s July 21 Promo Statement ‘untrue’ that, “…Mr. Horne would not appear in the same room as us for the debate” for the Sunday night Attorney General candidate debate, according to the show producer.  Sybil Hoffman, executive producer of the Channel 3 Sunday evening debate, said, “That is not true.”  Hoffman said that the station put the candidates in different rooms to video the debate. “Neither candidate asked for a separate room. The decision was entirely that of the station,” Hoffman said.  Incumbent Attorney General Tom Horne also said that it was the station’s decision to video the candidates in separate rooms.

       Brnovich’s July 21 promo reads: “Watch the First Mark Brnovich v. Tom Horne TV Debate: Last night Channel 3 aired the first televised Republican Attorney General debate between me and my primary opponent. Sparring for a little over 20 minutes, my opponent and I squared off on a number of issues and the debate got a bit heated at times. If you haven't already seen the debate, you can click on the link below to watch all three segments. Ch. 3 AG Debate: Segment 1 - 3    We were disappointed that Mr. Horne would not appear in the same room as us for the debate, but we look forward to future opportunities to demonstrate to voters who is best suited to represent voters this November in the general election. Please take some time to watch the debate and decide who you want fighting for you and your conservative values in the Attorney General's office.”

·       Campaign Signs Missing? According To Doug Nintzel, Arizona Department Of Public Transportation Public Information Officer, “ If campaign signs that are incorrectly placed within state highway right-of-way boundaries are collected by ADOT crews, they are taken to maintenance yards and are kept there for a couple of weeks to give campaigns some time to pick them up.”  He added, “Under state law, no campaign signs are allowed within the right of way ‎along state highways. ADOT sends letters to registered candidates each campaign cycle as a reminder of the prohibition against signs within highway right of way areas.”  So, if check with the nearby ADOT Maintenance Yard to see if your missing signs are stored there. See  ARS 16-1019 –political


·       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. See HB 2609 and it's clear that an HOA cannot enforce sign regulations that are more restrictive than those of the city, town or county according to AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham.  If you are living in an HOA and run into this situation, visit the AZGOP Facebook page and tell your side of the story.

·        Gubernatorial Candidate Christine Jones: With one week until early ballots go out, I am humbled by the support our campaign has received from citizens throughout the state. Since this campaign began, I have set out to share my conservative vision for Arizona and explain how we can make Arizona the brightest star in the Union. One of the most important issues facing Arizona right now is border security. I have been very straightforward about where I stand on this issue. I have a detailed plan to secure our southern border, and in just a few short months it will be time to turn my plan into action. We can and will get our border secure. Without your help and support this election, Arizona is at risk of losing committed, conservative leadership. Thankfully there is still time for you to pitch in, and there are three easy ways for you to do so: 1. Join the Team: By visiting you can sign up to be an official campaign Ambassador and stay in the know about upcoming events. 2. Change your profile picture: Show your support to friends and family on social media by changing your profile picture. 3. Donate today:  Help ensure we finish strong and are able to turn strategic solutions into reality. We are in the final stretch of the primary election, so once more I'd like to ask for your support. With your help, we'll implement the plans I've proposed and together we'll make Arizona the brightest star in the Union.


·        CD8 candidate Clair Van Steenwyk: Take a listen to this one and do some research on how the Federal Government is funding those who are coming into our country illegally by using different Church groups to funnel funds to them to help with the unbalanced and unconstitutional Naturalization laws on the books and being proposed presently and using the Human rights issue and of course the Compassion of different church groups to carry out this violation. The question for me is, why are those in office who are suppose to protect US funding these programs and what can we do to stop them. God Bless You All; Clair Van Steenwyk / AZ CD 8 Candidate


·        CD2 Candidate Martha McSally: We out-raised Congressman Barber's campaign for a Fourth Straight Quarter, something practically unheard of as a challenger.Although we are doing so well, as a Washington insider, Ron Barber had a head start on his fundraising, and still has a $400,000 cash advantage over my campaign. Barber's $400,000 advantage gives him an extra month's worth of TV Attack Ads against me.Because we MUST get our positive message out, my campaign is reserving time for our own TV buy. Our ads will highlight my background of service and doing what it takes to fix Washington.  Can you help us close that gap? Your contribution
