·       Chairman A. J. LaFaro Sat Down With Hank Stephenson Of The Arizona Capitol Times last week to discuss the surge of Arizona independent voters requesting early ballots for the August 26th Primary.  According to Maricopa County Elections, over 50,000 independent voters have requested early ballots so far with 60% of them being GOP ballots. Here is an excerpt from the interview:  Maricopa County Republican Party Chair A. J. LaFaro is one of many Republicans calling for closing the primary to fend off the moderating influence of independents. He argues that closing the primary or moving to a caucus system would give Republicans the ability to hold accountable candidates who are Republicans in name only.  And the movement — motivated by fear that Independents will help select candidates who are not faithful to the Republican Party platform — is gaining momentum.  “The nominating process, I think, should be reserved for those individuals who are of the party,” LaFaro said. “We’ll absolutely be looking very hard for that before the (2016) election.”  See complete article: as-more-az-independents-vote-in-primary-gop-eyes-closing-them

·       The Maricopa County Republican Committee Executive Guidance Committee (MCRC EGC) will meet at 7 pm, Thur., Aug 7 at AZGOP Headquarters, 3501 N. 24th St., Phoenix. Sign-ins open at 6 pm. All possible guests required to sign-in. Only registered Republicans with a valid photo ID will be admitted. No news media, audio and/or video recording allowed. The September MCRC EGC meeting will be Thurs, Sept 4. Contact: Chairman A J LaFaro


·       Attn: Coconino, Gila, Navajo And Yavapai Counties in regards to the vacancy on the ballot caused by the unfortunate passing of Sen. Chester Crandell. While write-in candidates are not authorized for the Primary Election [A.R.S. 16-343(F)], there is still time for write-in candidates to qualify for the General Election. The deadline for filing write-in candidate nomination papers for the General Election is September 25, 2014. More information about filing as a write-in is available at (A.R.S. 16-311, 16-312)


·       The Ever Outspoken National Conservative Columnist Michelle Malkin minced no words when she cut loose on gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey’s campaign manager in today’s column. “…his campaign manager’s nasty, race-baiting comments about anti-amnesty conservatives are troubling to say the least. His close ties to Common Core racketeers at Achieve Inc. and McCain Central are also unsettling. And for me, those are insurmountable obstacles.” See full column at


·       An item In The 8-4-14 Briefs read: Sen John McCain Is Being Courted For Endorsements by gubernatorial candidates, according to his interview with Braham Resnik regarding gubernatorial candidates campaign promises about closing the border.  Viewers are wondering which candidates are courting McCain in light of the AZGOP Committeemen and most of the County Republican Committees passing resolutions condemning McCain in January 2014.  McCain with Resnik


·       Mystery Solved: This Morning Gubernatorial Candidate Andy Thomas wrote: “As reported by Channel 3 KTVK, and according to Sen. McCain himself, all GOP gubernatorial candidates sought his endorsement except for me. Dennis Welch of Channel 3 tweeted this fact yesterday.  I forwarded his tweet onto my Facebook page, where you can confirm it.  Channel 3 last night aired a clip of Sen. McCain confirming this as well.”  So there you have it folks, Thomas did NOT go courting the Senator.


·       Chairman Robert Graham says he did NOT ban CD8 candidate Clair Van Steenwyk from the AZGOP West Valley Victory office in Sun City, as recently alleged by Van Steenwyk.  Graham said he told Van Steenwyk to apologize for his behavior during a heated dust up with volunteers in the office over whether Van Steenwyk was messing with Congressman Trent Franks campaign signs. Graham said he will not tolerate Van Steenwyk’s aggressive behavior toward office volunteers/vistors who disagree with him. Van Steenwyk will be airing his version again at 2 pm, Thursday on ‘Crossroads with Van/AZ GOP Dirty Politics’


·       In Chatting With Graham, who is in Chicago this evening, Graham clarified another point of confusion that is floating around the West Valley. It seems gubernatorial candidate Andy Thomas was invited to speak at the ‘Tuesday Morning Volunteers Meeting.’  Confusion arose when someone thought Graham had deemed that the volunteers could not use the Victory Office for “campaign meetings.”  So Thomas didn’t address the group this morning.  Graham told Briefs that he told the volunteers that the office was not be used as candidate’s individual campaign headquarters/strategy meetings etc. In other words – no candidate can just camp out in that office during office hours to do his/her campaigning or put their campaign signs/posters out front or in the parking lot.  Graham says he has no objection to them inviting candidates to address their Tuesday morning meetings and he didn’t know who prevented Thomas from speaking this morning. However, he cautioned – in fairness to all GOP candidates – if they invite a candidate to speak he expects them to extend an invitation to the other GOP candidates in that specific race as well… So much for scuttlebutt, trials and tribulations, and growing pains of getting a  new operation underway.


·       The  AZGOP West Valley office is located at 10050 W. Bell Road, Sun City, AZ 85351. Phone 623-977-4532.  Office hours are from 9am-5 pm, Mon-Fri and from 10 am-2 pm, Sat. Volunteers are encouraged. Voters are welcome to drop by to pick up GOP information, candidate literature, etc.  Treat them nice folks. They are the life’s blood of the party.  Volunteers give hours of their personal time keeping the things going.


·       LD6 Representative Brenda Barton: "We have lost a dear friend and patriot. Senator Chester Crandell passed away Monday while on his ranch. He was a dear friend that made going down to the Capitol a joy as we worked to make Arizona a better place every day. Chester's passion for education and rural Arizona was admired by all and I will miss working with him. I know he will be watching over all of us and I will continue to stand up for the beliefs I proudly shared with Chester. Please keep the Crandell family in your prayers," said Barton.

·       LD6 Representative Brenda Barton: I'm writing you today in sadness because we lost a dear friend and patriot. Senator Chester Crandell passed away yesterday afternoon while on his ranch. He was a dear friend that made going down to the Capitol a joy as we worked to make Arizona a better place every day. It feels like 2009 was not so long ago when then Representative Sylvia Allen and I recruited Chester to be part of the "ABC Team - Allen, Barton & Crandell"  - A team brand that is still remembered today in the Mountains of Eastern Arizona. The Senator left for a one-hour ride at about 10 am Monday morning on what investigators have been told was a “new colt".  When Chester did not return as planned, family members conducted a search on the DeSpain Ranch, which is north and east of Heber-Overgaard.  The family members found Chester at about 2 pm on the same route that he had described before leaving. They immediately called 911 and dispatchers sent deputies and medical personnel to the scene.  Family members reported that Chester had passed when they found him. His horse was found in the area. Supervisor David Tenney also expressed his sympathy and love to the Crandell family, “I have known Chet for more years than I can count.  He has always been a good example of hard work, decency and fairness.  His office, his phone and the gate to his ranch have always been open to friends and strangers alike, and I am so glad that I count him as one of my friends.  I know that his family will be surrounded by the community in a loving, tender and appropriate manner, but there is no doubt that this tragic event leaves a great hole in our community.  He has a great legacy in this area, and I am sure that we will all want to honor him in our own way. I trust that we will all do so with great respect and dignity.” Chester's passion for education and rural Arizona was admired by all. He is missed, he was a true statesman for rural Arizona,  and he's riding another range & keeping his eye on us. I will continue to stand up for the beliefs I proudly shared with Chester.

·       LD13 Senate candidate Toby Farmer: Today, Buckeye small business owner and LD13 Senate candidate Toby Farmer promised to donate the proceeds of his entire legislative salary to teachers during his first term if he is elected in the November 2014 election. Farmer, who has long stated that he is running for office because he believes in public service, has also been a strong proponent of business owners giving back to the community. “As the son of two public school teachers, I know what these teachers go through,” said Farmer. “They’re underpaid, underappreciated, and it seems like they are receiving less support from the legislature every year. We’ve got teachers spending money out of their own pockets on school supplies. The fact that the state is even considering a pay raise for legislators while teachers struggle is unconscionable.”  Farmer announced that he would donate the entire proceeds of his yearly salary to teachers in his district in both Yuma and Maricopa counties every year of his first two-year term if elected this November. Arizona legislators are paid $24,000 per year. While the exact process has not been determined yet, Farmer noted that the nomination process would require community, student, and parent involvement from district constituents. “We have all been impacted by teachers in our lives and I know looking back, I wish I could say ‘thank you’ to all of them,” said Farmer. “I want to be a conservative and compassionate voice for the education community at the legislature. This is one small way I can show my commitment to the real heroes in our community.”


·       Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs: We've been traveling the state and continuing our sprint toward the August 26th primary. I can't believe that we're now only 21 days away from Election Day. As we get closer to that big day, we need your help to ensure we are well positioned for victory.You can help today by making a contribution of $50 or more to my campaign, by completing your early ballot and voting for Frank Riggs, volunteering to call your precinct to get out the vote, or by signing-up to help us distribute yard signs throughout the state. We're closing in on victory and you have the ability to help put us over the top. Act now and join our growing team. Thank You.


·       CD2 Candidate Chuck Wooten: Today’s tragic, cowardly “green on blue” shooting near Kabul, Afghanistan which killed a U.S. two-star general and wounded 15 other NATO troops, including a German brigadier general is a stark reminder of the brutality of war. On behalf of the Wooten For Congress campaign team, I send our heartfelt prayers for the killed and wounded in this tragic moment. In the past two years, insurgents dressed in Afghan military uniforms have infiltrated our Afghan training units and have killed 85 NATO troops under similar circumstances.  The U.S. and its NATO allies are working tirelessly to train Afghan security forces in advance of President Obama’s announced withdraw of American forces from the country. At the time of this writing, the Commander-In-Chief has offered no statement regarding the tragedy but I can only hope that in light of this and the previous assassinations on our troops by insurgents will be met with a much more rigorous background and security screening of every Afghan applicant accepted into the training programs.  Further, President Obama and his Joint Chiefs of Staff should be reviewing the selection process for such security training programs and implementing rigorous safeguards to ensure no one is permitted with any ties to insurgent operatives.  Taking the security measures further, a greater measure of situational awareness and protective posture must be implemented immediately to ensure any future attempts are thwarted before they materialize.  Providing armed, NATO, vigilant security details to the training environments seems like a good idea to preclude further attacks. Again, our prayers are with the families of those affected by this cowardly act.


·       CD2 Candidate Chuck Wooten: The path to victory is in front of us now. We must have the winning tally. There will be no second chances. Your neighbors, friends, and family received the Voting Guide and probably felt a small knot in their stomach. There are only about 15 pages that will even apply to you. Urge them not to shrug it off. Our only way to truly cut back government waste, fraud and abuse is to vote. Each Message: The Voter's Guide does not have any information on the Congressional Candidates. The responsibility is left to us. Having signs is not enough. We continue to increase our outreach through local events, town halls, walking and phone calls. We need to do more!  Please reach out with us: (1) VOLUNTEERS  make phone calls - we will give you the list of numbers and a script. Call 50 registered voters from your home. (2) WALKERS  hand out information regarding the campaign message and show your support. We walk mornings, afternoons, and weekends. Please specify area and availability. YARD SIGNS  reserve your yard sign or sponsor others to have a yard sign. Each contribution of $7.99 will show your support. T-SHIRTS  reserve your red t shirt in ladies v neck or unisex crew neck sizes featuring the Wooten logo on the front and "We the People" on the back when you contribute $20 to our cause. ADVERTISING   help us tell our story through radio and television. Our positive is backed by extensive proof through demonstrated leadership and Experience That Is Worthy Of Your Vote And Truly Will Win Back Representation For Southern Arizona!


·       Attorney General Candidate Mark Brnovich: Mark Brnovich is having his second phone bank this Wednesday night, and we need you to help us make phone calls. These phone systems are the easiest.  All you need to do is to call a number, punch in a pin, and the system dials for you. You just talk to voters (the system leaves voicemails for you). We will provide pizza for those who come in to make calls. Please let me know if you can make it. We really need all hands on deck to make as many calls to voters who have received their early ballots. The election could come down to who makes the most calls to voters. Thank you so much for your help and support for Mark throughout this campaign.


·     Queen Creek City Council Candidate Emilena Turley:  The momentum for my race is off the charts thanks to each of you, your support, kindness, hard work and service in so many ways! Please pick up those ballots that are on your counter, fill them out and walk them to the mailbox. Grab all the voters in your household and encourage them to do the same. This is an important election! If you would like my thoughts on the best candidates for other races, please let me know.  Also, we have volunteers willing to pick up ballots and ensure their safe delivery for any of you who prefer hand-delivery. Our focus is to encourage everyone to get those ballots in the mail. Your vote may be the vote that results in a victory for the men and women that will best protect the freedoms we are so blessed to enjoy. Appreciate you all. Cell: 602-570-8430 


·        CD9 candidate Wendy Rogers: We’re now just 21 days away from the August 26th primary election and from taking another important step forward toward defeating Kyrsten Sinema in November. Will you help us sprint through the remaining three weeks of this primary campaign? You can help today by: (1) Chip in to help us share our message with voters across the 9th district on TV, radio, and online.  (2) Volunteer to join our growing team of friends and supporters who are helping spread the word about my campaign. (3) Complete your early ballot to cast your vote for Wendy Rogers today.   We’re getting so close to the finish line; we need a strong push to win the primary and to prepare for Kyrsten Sinema in the general election. Our district needs new leadership and I’m ready to serve, and ready to win. Let’s get it done.

·       Yesterday, State Senator Chester Crandall, Republican from LD6, left on a solitary ride on his horse near his home in Heber.  When he didn't return, a crew went in search and found him on the ground on the trail.  It is thought that he was either thrown from his horse or fell off for some reason.  Senator Crandall was an accomplished rider. Senator Crandall was a true patriot in the purest sense of the word, much loved throughout his district and always considered the needs of his constituents, the Constitution and the rule of law in his decision making.  There is now a massive hole to fill in the hearts of the people he so carefully and lovingly served.  An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death. Flags will be flown at half-staff as befitting this fine public servant for Arizona. Our hearts are heavy this night as we send our most profound sympathies to his family and friends and those with whom he served so respectfully in the Arizona Legislature and all who have been touched by this fine man. With blessings for the family and all liberty loving Arizonans on the loss of one of our own,
