·       CD3 Candidate Gabby Saucedo-Mercer has incumbent Dem Raul Grijalva on the run.  “He has been hiding from Saucedo Mercer, rejecting all debate and candidate forum requests, but the big chicken has finally accepted a ‘debate’ type interview,” according to CD3 coordinator Andrew Costanzo.  The televised CD 3 segment will air at 8:30 pm, Fr., Oct 17 on PBS-6 (Tucson) and will also appear on their website on Oct. 17 azpm.org/metroweek.

 

·       Gabby Needs Your Help. If you are considering contributing to CD3 candidate Gabby Saucedo-Mercer’s campaign –now is the time.  Gabby needs to send out some targeted campaign postcards, which I believe will put her over the top.  The problem is that despite running an extremely frugal campaign there has been ZERO financial help from the National Republican Party, all the attention is going to CD 1 and to CD 2.  AZ GOP has assisted with some in-kind contributions, but Gabby desperately needs cash!  Help Gabby beat the most liberal Congressman in the U.S., Raúl Grijalva. Send Gabby $14 for 2014 ($14 will help her reach 28 more voters by mail), or contribute more if you can.  Click http://saucedomercer.com/ to make a contribution. Together we will send Grijalva into retirement! Contact Andrew Costanzo at keepazred@hotmail.com or call 480 677-0697 to volunteer.

 

·       Don’t Forget To Sign Your Mail In Ballots Envelope. Did you know that over 5,000 ballots in the primary weren't counted because they weren't signed and they arrived after the primary.  It is suggested that you mail in your early ballots by Oct 30 so they are sure to be delivered to the Recorder’s office by Nov 4. Postmarks do not count.  If you don’t mail your ballot before Oct 30, take it to any polling place within your county.

·       Attorney General Tom Horne: I want to express sincere thanks to all of my supporters in the primary.  I will never forget the friendship and help you have given me. I hope to keep in touch with as many people as possible, as I have greatly valued your friendship.  I can look back on 12 years of public service with a lot of accomplishments for the public good and look forward to returning to the private practice of law, which I did for 30 years before that. If, come January, you want to sue anyone, I am at your disposal! The day after the election, I called Mark Brnovich to congratulate him and offer my full support.  I am asking you to support him as well.   After a tough primary, it can be difficult to overcome competitive feelings, but it is the right thing to do. Mark and I were in competition, but we agreed on almost all issues.  It will be important to have an Attorney General who continues to fight for our right to be sure only citizens vote, to continue the long battle against race studies in Tucson, who continues to resist overreach by the federal government, and a number of other similar issues.  Mark will do these things; his Democratic opponent will not. Your contributions, volunteer time, and votes, will  help him continue working on a number of issues that I have been working on. Again, thank you for all you have done.  I will never forget your friendship

Contribute at: www.saucedomercer.com.  Volunteers can reach MCRC’s CD3 campaign coordinator Andrew Costanzo at keepazred@hotmail.com or call 480-677-0697.

·       CD5 Incumbent Matt Salmon: I'm excited to announce our newest TV commercial is up and running! You can view it by clicking here. These past two years in Congress I have fought day and night to stop President Obama's liberal agenda, and support polices that secure our border, improve our education system, create good-paying jobs, shrink the size of our government and stop wasting your taxpayer dollars. These are my priorities as your Congressman, and with your vote, I will continue to fight for these priorities so we can get America back on the right track once again. Working together, I have no doubt that we can do this. Thank you for your continued support and friendship.

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey: People have been voting for several days now and Election Day is only 19 days away.  The stakes are high in this election and the choice is clear.  We can either elect a leader who will command Arizona’s fiscal ship responsibly or one who will spend beyond our means.  The future of Arizona is at stake and your help could make the difference.  Just a couple hours of your time could determine who is our governor for the next four years. If you have some free time on Saturday, we could really use your help.   http://dougducey.com/contact-the-campaign/  if you have a couple hours to spare between noon and 3pm on Sat., Oct 18. If you can’t help this Saturday but would still like to volunteer, then please let us know.Thanks for the support!

 

·       LD6 Rep Brenda Barton: Last Friday afternoon, Rep Brenda Barton joined State Representatives Coleman, Dial and Fann in supporting a bill to address education funding in Arizona.  "This January, we will be sponsoring legislation in the Arizona House and Arizona Senate titled “ACT-Additional Classroom Time for Kindergartners.” When signed into law, this legislation will guarantee that every public elementary school kindergartner in the state of Arizona will have the opportunity to receive universal, additional classroom time. It is our goal that our legislation will inspire leaders in the Arizona House and Senate to work collaboratively with our newly elected governor on identifying the court-ordered $317 million in inflation funding while delivering a valuable academic program to all of Arizona’s kindergartners. While not required, we will encourage school districts and charter schools to use a portion of the inflation funding, ordered by the Arizona Supreme Court, to pay for the additional instruction required," said Barton. The letter from the four legislator also stated, "The recent court ruling requiring the state Legislature to increase annual funding to public and charter K-12 schools by $317 million presents the perfect opportunity to provide universal, additional classroom time for kindergartners. This will allow Arizona’s youngest students to access additional instructional time to learn English and math, develop valuable social skills, and be positioned for strong academic futures. Our legislation, the 2015 “ACT Bill – Additional Classroom Time for Kindergartners,” will guarantee all of Arizona’s kindergarten students are provided with the opportunities they deserve for their futures and for the future of our state."

·       CD2 Candidate Martha Mcsally announced raising an impressive $1.4 million during the third quarter of fundraising, her largest fundraising total to date and a sign of her campaign's growing momentum entering the final stretch of the race. McSally has outraised incumbent Ron Barber for the last five reporting periods, showing the continued support for new leadership in Southern Arizona. "Voters are sick and tired of Congressman Barber's failed leadership. Southern Arizona has lost more jobs than any place in the country over the last five years, and now more than ever, people are getting behind new leadership," said McSally Campaign Spokesman Patrick Ptak. "Martha is an independent leader who has taken on tough challenges before and gotten results. She's shown she won't back down from either party when it comes to doing what's best for Southern Arizona, and that's why she's seeing more support than ever."   McSally has seen growing support for her fresh approach to job creation and extensive expertise on issues related to national security. Organizations focused on economic growth are strongly backing. Colonel Martha McSally (ret.) is an independent voice who is committed to fighting for equal treatment of women and more opportunity for the middle class. She has been active in defending Southern Arizona's critical job-creators like Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and Fort Huachuca. A 26-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, McSally was the first woman to fly in combat and command a fighter squadron in U.S. history.

 

·       CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: Exciting news to share, We just released our second TV ad "Crisis,”  filmed on the U.S.-Mexico border. Andy is committed to doing what needs to be done to secure our border and enforce our laws. See ad Meanwhile, Ann Kirkpatrick continues to play political games with President Obama and Nancy Pelosi.    With just 21 days to go until Election Day, voters need to know the differences between Kirkpatrick and Andy on border security. We’ve got to make sure we have the resources we need to keep this ad running. Especially when Nancy Pelosi and her allies are spending millions of dollars on tv to smear andy's name. donate to help us keep this ad on the air.

·       CD2 Candidate Martha McSally : I wanted to give you a quick heads up on our goal. Our Final FEC fundraising deadline is tomorrow, and we need to raise $25,000. As I write this, we’re $9,458 short of our goal. Will you help out? Early ballots have dropped and people are already voting. Voters head to the polls in 21 days, and every dollar now will be used to help turn out the vote. We can’t let her lose. But without your help, we will not have the resources. Period. Can you pitch in now? Let’s help put Martha over the top so she can beat him!

 

·        CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: I just left my third debate against Ann Kirkpatrick in Marana and am on the road - don’t worry, my son is driving. She kept on trying to change the subject away from her liberal voting record. But here's what scares me. Ann Kirkpatrick won’t have to defend her record if she can rely on Nancy Pelosi’s millions of dollars of cash to save her. We have a HUGE fundraising report due to the FEC tomorrow night. it has to be the best we can do. Please donate whatever you can - to help make sure we reach our goal: http://www.andytobin.com/debate-three/  We have the winning message but none of it will matter if we get swamped by Pelosi’s war chest. We have to stay toe to toe with them. It will all be over in just 21 days. I’m so thankful for all your help and everything you guys do. 

 

·        CD2 Candidate Martha McSally delivered a confident debate performance, showcasing her expertise on national security issues and fresh ideas for growing the economy. Her clear and thoughtful responses stood in stark contrast to Ron Barber, who came out of the gate stumbling and tripping over his own positions.  "Tonight we saw a politician who's desperately trying to save his job come unhinged as he struggled to defend his dismal record," said McSally Campaign Spokesman Patrick Ptak. "The stress of only having 21 more days on the job is clearly getting to Ron Barber, and you can bet it will only get worse as we get closer to Election Day." Throughout the night, Congressman Barber struggled to explain his record of ineffectiveness and failing to produce results for Southern Arizonans on issues like our still weak economy, unsecured border, and threatened bases. When asked about partisan gridlock in Washington, Congressman Barber pointed the finger at other politicians. At one point, even the moderator looked to Barber when he said, "we're still waiting for a solution on border security."  Unlike Congressman Barber, Martha displayed a firm understanding of the issues voters care most about: the economy and national security. She spoke confidently and knowledgeably about the cyber and terror threats facing our nation and showed a deep understanding of Fort Huachuca, its missions, and their importance to Sierra Vista and Southern Arizona. Only one candidate showed the depth of understanding and poise of a Congressman tonight, and that was Martha. McSally's winning debate performance adds fuel to her campaign's growing momentum. Earlier today, McSally announced raising $1.4 million during the third quarter, her largest total since announcing her candidacy. McSally has out-raised incumbent Barber for the past five reporting periods.

 

·       CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: this is it. We have just 20 days left. Because we’ve got less than a month to go until Election Day, the FEC requires candidates to file their last fundraising reports through the 15th of October. That means we have just 13 hours to make sure Andy Tobin turns in the best report he’s ever had.  Andy’s race in rural Arizona is shaping up to be one of our top pick up opportunities this year. He’s on the verge of defeating Ann Kirkpatrick and adding this seat to our Republican House Majority. But he needs your help first. Your contribution We’re running out of time. We don’t want to have any regrets on Election Night.  Donate to win this race.
Thank you for your support. -- Rep. Greg Walden, NRCC Chairman

 

·       CD2 Candidate Martha McSally: I know what you’re thinking. “Enough with the emails already!” I know it’s been a lot. But we’re in the homestretch of the campaign. Will you help me? In 20 days, the ads, the telephone calls, and the door knocks will all end - and our district will have decided who will be their voice: Ron Barber or me. In 2012, I came within less than 0.84% of beating Ron Barber.Your donation, whatever the amount, is critical to helping close that 0.84% gap so I will be victorious on Election Day. Today is my FINAL FEC deadline before Election Day. With only hours to go until my last public deadline, I need your help. Early voting has already started for our district. We need every dollar now to reach every voter possible. Please don’t wait. Now is when it matters most.

 

·       CD2 Candidate Martha McSally yesterday was joined by Chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee Jeff Miller to hear from Southern Arizona veterans on the issues impacting them. The roundtable discussion focused on ensuring veterans' health care is quality and consistent throughout the country."At a critical time like this, Southern Arizona veterans need a strong representative like Martha, who's familiar with the VA system and can fight for better accountability for our Administration," said Chairman Miller. "Our veterans deserve the very best we can give them. Having served 26 years in uniform, Martha understands that and brings already established ties with the veterans community. She'll be an independent leader making sure that the many veterans in Southern Arizona have a strong voice in Congress."  "I have known Martha for over ten years and I can tell you, rarely does one find all of the qualifications that Martha embodies in one person," said Vernon Harms, former Chaplain for the 173rd Fighter Wing. "I know that when elected, she'll do what's best for us, not just her re-election."  "In my mind, there's nothing more important than keeping the promises to those who served, and Washington has not done that," said Nando Zepeda, retired Captain of the U.S. Air Force. "That's why we need more than ever a leader like Martha taking charge. She served for 26 years to keep our country safe and I know she'll continue her record of achieving on behalf of veterans when she's in Congress."

·        The Second Dallas Health Care Worker with Ebola was on a flight from Cleveland to Dallas on Monday -- the day before she reported symptoms, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today. Because of the proximity in time between the Monday evening flight and the first report of her illness, the CDC wants to interview all 132 passengers on Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth, which landed at 8:16 p.m. CT Monday, the CDC said.
