·       CD3 Candidate Gabby Saucedo-Mercer: Make you voice heard! Vote! Volunteer! Contribute! Put a Campaign Lawn Sign in Your Yard! It is no secret, Candidates need money to conduct an effective campaign, especially in a huge Congressional District such as your CD 3.  Gabby Saucedo Mercer is working her tail off to beat Rual Grijalva (who is consistently recognized as the most liberal Congressman in the U.S.) but her grassroots campaign needs your help to win.  There has been ZERO financial help from either the National or Arizona Republican Party, all the attention is going to CD 1 and to CD 2.  Help fertilize the grassroots!  Send Gabby $14 for 2014 or even just $3 for CD 3 ($3.00 will help her reach 6 more voters by mail). Contribute to Gabby

 

·       LD29 House Candidate Aaron Borders: We are now Phone Banking!!! Not Robo Calls, But actually talking to Real Live LD29 Voters!! Please email the Aaron Borders for Arizona Team at aaronborders@aaronborders4az.com for directions. We are phone banking from 5-8pm Tue, Wed, Thurs. Please come out and be part of a grass roots team. Pick a day that works for you and come on out an make a difference! Also the video that has Exposed our opponent is getting a lot of traction. As of Tue night we have gotten 1,700 views. Please Share this link with your social media and email contacts. We must expose the Democrat running in LD29 for what she is. This is a Must See,  Must Share video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yf79hr00kQE even if a Democrat sees this video they wont vote for her.

 

·       CD3 Candidate Gabby Saucedo Mercer: Republicans, YOU are moving the needle!  In 2012 Primary Election (Primary Election Only), in the Maricopa County portion of CD 3, Gabby Saucedo Mercer beat Grijalva by 4.8%.  In the recent 2014 Primary Election in the Maricopa County portion of CD 3, Gabby Saucedo Mercer beat Grijalva by 19.6%!  This is HUGE, but it is also necessary that the patriots in the Maricopa County portion of CD 3 each get a few more votes for Gabby in the November General to offset Grijalva’s huge liberal advantage in Pima County.  LET'S ROLL!  Contribute to Gabby or Volunteer Today! Make Phone Calls for Gabby & Walk for Gabby.

 

·       Attorney General Candidate Mark Brnovich: The State of Arizona and more than 31 fellow states have passed laws to prohibit public officials from leaving elected office and immediately lobbying the government body they just departed. Elected officials shouldn’t see their time in public service as the setup for a private-sector payday. In Arizona, State law prohibits legislators and public officers from lobbying for at least one year after leaving elected office. For at least two years, public officers may not disclose for personal gain any confidential information. But there’s a gaping loophole in the law: The statute doesn’t apply to State regulators, the very individuals perhaps best positioned to game the system. Once elected Brnovich proposes legislation to extend the State “cooling off” statute for elected officials to top State regulators who serve in a supervisory and decision-making capacity. Take the case of Felecia Rotellini. From 2006 to 2009, she was Superintendent of the State Banking Department (subsequently renamed the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions). According to the AZDFI website, the agency “is statutorily charged with licensing, supervision and regulation of State-chartered financial institutions and enterprises,” and ensures “the safety and soundness of the financial services industry in Arizona.” Yet, after heading this organization for the better part of four years, Rotellini left in August 2009 and immediately went to work for local law firm Zwillinger, Greek & Knecht. The firm says it represents a range of “Fortune 100 and multinational corporations.” Rotellini promotes her services to banks, credit unions and other financial institutions this way: “Ms. Rotellini is an expert in administrative law with her background as both a lawyer for state agencies and as the ultimate decision maker when she was the Superintendent of the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions. She provides advice and counsel to businesses and individuals regarding regulatory and administrative issues in a myriad of situations. She leads the firm’s administrative law practice and regularly guides businesses through licensing processes with state agencies and how to best respond to government examinations and inquiries. Ms. Rotellini brings her perspective as a former prosecutor and regulator to the representation of her clients, such as community banks and credit unions, mortgage and other financial services companies, and individual licensed professionals.  She is currently representing clients before professional licensing boards, in administrative disciplinary proceedings, and during investigations and enforcement actions by agencies such as the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions (ADFI), the Arizona Board of Appraisal, the Arizona Board of Accountancy and the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.” In other words, Rotellini was Arizona’s top regulator with the sole duty to serve as a watchdog over the banking industry and safeguard consumers. But she left State government in order to cash-in on that knowledge – immediately going to work for the very same banks and credit unions she had been entrusted to watch over.  “Arizona taxpayers are right to be sick of this kind of Revolving Door political gamesmanship. As a State regulator, Felecia Rotellini was entrusted to look after Arizona consumers. But now she uses her insider knowledge to help big banks cheat the system,” Brnovich said. “When I’m Attorney General, I’ll work with legislators and the Governor to close this loophole and make certain the lobbying ‘cooling off’ period for legislators is applied to top State regulators, as well.”

·       CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: I wouldn’t be emailing you if this wasn’t urgent. But have you turned on the TV lately?  Nancy Pelosi and her liberal allies are already spending millions to smear Andy on the airwaves. Ann Kirkpatrick just launched a new TV ad lying about Andy’s record. We can turn this fight on the airwaves around, but I need your help. I need you to donate to our campaign’s *RAPID RESPONSE FUND* RIGHT NOW. Time is of the essence here. We absolutely cannot let Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, and Ann Kirkpatrick dominate the airwaves in Arizona. They’re hoping to drown out Andy’s message of limited government, conservative values, and responsible spending with their misleading and negative ads. Your donation to our *RAPID RESPONSE FUND* will help keep us competitive on the airwaves until Election Day.  We always knew this was going to be a tough fight until the very end. Show Andy that you’re standing alongside him as we fight back against the Pelosi machine.

·       CD9 Candidate Wendy Rogers Calls on Sinema to Keep Her Promise - Asks Her To Return Salary For Not Doing Her Job.  In a desperate attempt to whitewash her Washington record, Krysten Sinema began airing an ad today that tried to gloss over her failings in Washington. In her ad, Sinema said Congress should not get paid if it doesn't do its job . . . something that found immediate support from candidate Wendy Rogers. "I agree, I look forward to Kyrsten Sinema returning her salary to taxpayers for the past two years," said Wendy Rogers. "Given that she has not voted for a single budget or offered a solution of her own - it's pretty clear she's not doing her job. She should live up to her promise to return her pay. "Sinema voted against the House Budget H. Con. Res. 96 on April 10th, 2014. She also voted against the Democratic Budget Alternative on the same day. A check of House sponsored bills also shows that she has never offered a budget of her own. Sinema also voted against a balanced budget that would have prevented Members of Congress from using taxpayer dollars to fly first class (Roll Call #88; 3/20/2013). "The only budget matter she seems to have an opinion on is keeping her First-Class-only ticket on flights to Washington," said Rogers. "I'm interested in getting our budget back in balance and returning our country to a solid footing. As a small business owner, I understand how to make budgets balance." Sinema's ad also tried to gloss over the fact that she has supported Nancy Pelosi on 82% of recorded votes since going to Washington. (Washington Post, U.S. Congress Votes Database) "Its time for real leadership that will put Arizona first," said Rogers. "Pelosi and Obama have enough cheerleaders; we need someone who will work to solve problems."

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey: I hope that you have managed to stay dry and safe throughout the last couple storms. We are chugging away at the Ducey Headquarters trying to insure we head into October with a lead over Fred DuVal. It is really a close race and we only have 46 days left until the election. That means in less than 3 weeks early ballots will be dropping in the mail.  The Secretary of State's Office said that 80% of primary ballots were early ballots. It is important we work our hardest from now until October 9th! We need your help this weekend! Can you commit to spending a couple hours with us reaching out to voters during these time slots?

o   Thursday: 5pm-7:30pm

o   Friday: 3pm-6pm

o   Saturday: 1pm-4pm

This would mean a lot to Doug and to us. A couple hours of your time or one day a week would be a huge help to us. Thank you again for your continued support and I look forward to hearing back from you!  dougducey.com/contact-the-campaign/
