· Today Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham asked more questions of Democrat gubernatorial Fred DuVal about his lobbying activities and whose behalf he lobbied government officials. Graham, in his latest letter to the Democrat nominee, argues that voters have a right to know what DuVal did as a lobbyist and which corporations and industries he was paid to represent. Drug companies lobby government officials because public programs like Medicare pay for a major portion of drug company revenue, causing drug company lobbyists to pressure officials to increase spending on those programs and drive up profits - at taxpayer expense. (New York Times, 10-14-2008) "This is why disclosure of your client list is so important, Fred. There’s no way Arizonans can accurately judge your work without knowing who you worked for and what you were advocating for,” said Graham. "You may try to shrug this off, but it’s a serious issue and your unwillingness to come clean with Arizona voters will carry a heavy price before November 4th rolls around." See letter http://azgop.org/blog/

WHAT CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:
· CD9 Candidate Wendy Rogers: It didn’t take very long for Kyrsten Sinema and her liberal allies in Washington, D.C. to start launching their desperate attacks against me and my campaign. It’s not surprising. Sinema has an absolutely terrible record to run on, and she’s proven that she’ll say or do anything to hang onto her seat....unfortunately for her, it won’t work. I need your help to respond. A donation will provide us with the resources to set the record straight and to show the voters of the 9th district why we need a proven leader – not more epty rhetoric from Sinema and her allies. Kyrsten Sinema has put her own allegiance to President Obama and his failed agenda ahead of the people of our district. She’s been a relentless cheerleader for broken policies that burden individuals, families, and job creators. We deserve better, and she’s proven that she’s not up to the task. And so she resorts to negative attacks right out of the gate. chip in to send Sinema a very clear message that we will win this election and retire her in November.
· Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey: We've hit the ground running with our message of freedom and opportunity for all, and we’re bringing together Arizonans across the state. Over the past week, all of my Republican primary opponents have announced their support of my campaign for governor. They agree that hardworking taxpayers deserve a governor who will work to kick-start our economy and improve results in education. We also launched our Freedom and Opportunity Tour this week with a stop at Able Engineering in Mesa and a tele-town hall last night with the President & CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, Glenn Hamer. And in the weeks to come, we'll be getting all around the state learning from companies where jobs are being created and listening to the concerns of those who are educating and preparing our citizens for promising careers.If our campaign stands for any one idea, it's opportunity for all and the chance to get ahead. If you agree with my message, I need your help: please donate whatever you can today. We need to keep Arizona conservative this November. Let’s get this done.Thank you!
· Incumbent LD20 Sen Kimberly Yee: Last week, over 15,000 voters cast their votes for Kimberly Yee in the primary election ensuring Senator Yee's status as the Republican nominee in the November election. She is now facing opposition by both a Democrat and an Independent in the general election. "I am so thankful for all the support I have received from the voters of Legislative District 20," Yee stated. "The residents of my district want to grow our economy, better educate our workforce and improve our public schools. I agree with them. These are the goals that we need to accomplish to make Arizona stronger. I take every election very seriously and work extremely hard to earn the support and trust of every new and returning voter of my district. I am very fortunate to have an opportunity to serve the very community where I was born and raised, and where I have chosen to raise my family. This general election in District 20 is an important one because there are significant differences between each of the candidates on the ballot. I hope to stand out as YOUR candidate on the ballot because I will continue to fight for defending our freedoms and protecting our free market principles. I have been blessed to achieve the American Dream because I believe in personal responsibility and the opportunity for everyone to succeed. I will not be taking any vote for granted and will be campaigning on a message of growing our economy, improving education, keeping our neighborhoods safe and our families strong. If you can support my campaign in any way, through your financial donations or volunteer hours, I would greatly appreciate it. We must accomplish these goals together." www.kimberlyyee.com or a check to Kimberly Yee for Arizona to P.O. BOX 83561 Phoenix, Arizona 85071.
