·       Maricopa County GOP Chairman A. J. LaFaro Issues Open Letter Regarding Ballot Harvesting:  Today, Randy Parazz with Citizens for A Better Arizona (CBA) called for my apology and resignation as Chairman of the Maricopa County GOP due to the fact that I had the courage to expose CBA’s ballot harvesting practices to the world. Once again, Mr. Parraz is attempting to shift attention away from his group and their questionable practices while attacking a conservative.
I find CBA’s press release to be hypocritical, baseless and without merit. If anyone should be apologizing, it should be Mr. Marin to me for his vicious and vulgar verbal attack while he was stuffing a polling place receptacle with ballots.
Mr. Parraz notes that Mr. Marin is a graduate of Arizona State University with a Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Communication and America History. Clearly Mr. Marin should have developed civility and better communication skills while attending the publically funded university.
I simply raised questions about ballot harvesting and whether or not Arizona, as the only state in the Union that allows this sort of questionable activity, should reconsider its laws. As a student of American History, Mr. Marin should have a greater understanding and appreciation for the sanctity of our vote and Arizona’s sovereignty.
As for Mr. Marin’s choice of words that day, I invite him to join me in taking a lie detector test to show just which one of us accurately recalls the events and words uttered of that day.
I will not be intimidated or bullied into apologizing or resigning.  I stand by my convictions and courage in exposing this and asking the question "Is this voter fraud?  You be the judge."  I guess another question should now be asked - "What are the Citizens for a Better Arizona (CBA) trying to hide?"

In closing, I testified at the Arizona Senate and House Hearings that created some excellent election laws and good sound public policy that were supported by the Secretary of State and all the County Recorders/Election Departments that ultimately resulted in HB-2305.  In 2015, I plan to testify again and hope to get those same election laws passed again and let it each one of them stand on their own merit - including one to eliminate ballot harvesting. - A. J. LaFaro, Chairman, Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC)

·       Congressman Paul A. Gosar statement after representatives from Mohave County, the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) identified a plan to restore the trout-stocking program at the Willow Beach National Fish Hatchery: “Today, common sense prevailed and Mohave County can once again rely on the trout-stocking program at the Willow Beach Fish Hatchery to provide economic growth, jobs and recreational fishing for its residents. I applaud the hard work and vigilance of the many individuals and groups who spoke out and took action to prevent the termination of this vital program. “I am pleased to see the USFWS following through on their promise made to me during a September Natural Resources hearing stating that once repairs were made to the water delivery system at the hatchery, the trout stocking program would resume. The 1,700 jobs and $75 million in economic output for Mohave County generated by this program are too important to be threatened by bureaucratic red tape.”The proposed solution would include construction of a floating pump-platform assembly at an estimated cost of $776,448. This proposal is essentially the same solution proposed by Congressman Gosar with support from the Mohave County office of Development Services.
·       Phx City Councilman Sal Di Ciccio: Media Exposes Govt. Unions for Misleading Voters:  Police and Fire Clearly excluded from 487. "Attorneys on both sides say it's unlikely state law would allow the city to stop contributing money to the state-retirement plan for public-safety workers." Arizona Republic,  October 26, 2014   article “The initiative specifically excludes police and fire because it only deals with the city’s pension plan and not the state’s”  Sal DiCiccio, Ahwatukee News October 21, 2014  article. Remember the Food Tax: Government Unions forced you to pay a food tax claiming  it would go for police and Fire?  Instead over $151 million went for new pay raises and bonuses for themselves. The Government Unions are doing it again now with pension reform.  Don’t believe them.  They are doing everything they can to stop you from voting.  Don’t let them win.  If they win and you will see more cuts to services and more new taxes like the newly imposed water tax to pay for rising pensions. Vote YES 487/Stop Pension Abuse/Pension Spiking.
·       Circulating The Net: This Reflects The Feelings Of A Lot Of People.
The folks who are getting the free stuff   don't like
the folks who are paying for the free stuff , because
the folks who are paying for the free stuff  can no longer afford
to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.
And the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop. 
And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the   free stuff they are already getting!
Now... The people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff  
have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff  
that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff  
are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.
So... The people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced
they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff  
 by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff  
and giving them the free stuff   in the first place.
We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long
that there are now more people getting free stuff
than paying for the  free stuff .
Now understand this:All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200  and  250 years after being founded.
The reason?
The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury
by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury
 in exchange for electing them.
The United States officially became a Republic in 1776 , 236 years ago.
The number of people now getting free stuff
outnumbers the people paying for the  free stuff .
Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.

·        Crossroads-With-Van-Addresses-AZ-Early-Ballot-Harvesting/Fraud  Heaer Van discussing “AZ and other states infection with what is called Early Ballot Harvesting and this practice makes our Elections basically a Fraud on All Voters and needs to be stopped or cancel Early Voting and return to Absentee & Poll Voting Only.”  Only six states don’t have early voting.
·       Fred Duval, Democrat Candidate For Governor and special interest lobbyist, worked as a “consultant” for Swiss Bank UBS in 25 states.  In several of those states, including Georgia, DuVal failed to register as a lobbyist despite state regulations that show he should have.  Why is DuVal hiding his lobbying activities?  When will he follow through on his promise to release his lobbying client list? “With eight days left until the election voters now know Fred Duval was a prominent lobbyist in Washington DC and throughout the country, but we’re still in the dark about his activities in many of these states, including Georgia,” said Robert Graham, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. “What is he hiding about his lobbying activity and why didn’t he report it?"  Background:
·       Final Push To Get Out The Vote In CD 3.  This part of the orchestrated strategy is to simply make phone calls to Republicans in CD 3 who have not yet returned their early ballots. The bottom line is that CD3 candidate Gabby Saucedo Mercer wins if we can get enough Republicans in CD 3 to vote!  But that is not all; with a Gabby victory we should expect victories for the respective Republican State Senate and House Candidates in LD 4, LD 13, LD 19 and LD 29 and our efforts will also assist our State-wide candidates too.  Voters said that you want to get rid of the leftist incumbent Raul Grijalva, now is your chance to act! We have thousands of calls to make and Gabby needs your help. I promise you that it is really easy; you can secure the vote of 100 Republicans in just a few hours.  If 100 contacts if too many, then just ask for 50. For a sample script and a phone list contact Andrew Costanzo, or 480 677-0697.

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey: Doug and Angela Ducey are celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary today -- just over a week before Election Day.  They've given up a lot of date nights to attend campaign events this year, but we can do something special for them as they head into the final week of this election.  Let's take a moment to show them that we're behind them in these last few days by each donating $24 in honor of their 24th anniversary.   The next week will be critical -- we are in the final stretch -- so let's stand with Doug and Angela today and all through Election Day.  Together, we can share Doug's message of opportunity for all and boost Doug to victory on November 4th.

·        CD2 Candidate Martha McSally  today released a new ad, "Better Off," highlighting Ron Barber's record of supporting President Obama's failed agenda, leading to highest in the nation job losses in Southern Arizona. Ron Barber has been a firm supporter of President Obama's economic policies and recently admitted that, under him, things have gotten worse for Southern Arizonans. "When even Ron Barber thinks things have gotten worse under him, it's time for him to go," said McSally Campaign Spokesman Patrick Ptak. "Voters know that a vote for Ron Barber is a vote for President Obama's anti-jobs policies like blocking the Keystone XL pipeline, placing more burdens on business owners, and raising taxes on the middle class. Instead of a rubberstamp for President Obama, voters want someone who will fight for our families and they know Martha is an independent leader who will do just that." Recently, the Wall Street Journal reported that Tucson has lost more jobs than any region in the country over the past five years, showing that Arizonans continue to struggle under President Obama's and Ron Barber's failed agenda. In contrast, Martha continues to receive support for her fresh ideas to grow the economy and create jobs.
Script: (Narrator) "Washington is broken."
(President Obama) "They have supported my agenda in Congress."
(Reporter) "Are we better off?"
(Ron Barber) "Not for a lot of people I talk to."
(President Obama) "They have supported my agenda in Congress."

(Ron Barber) "Too many are still without jobs."

·       CD9 Candidate Wendy Rogers: Only Eight More Days until the November 4th election -- with just one more weekend for our campaign to take Wendy Rogers’ message to doorsteps across Arizona’s 9th District. Our team of volunteers and supporters has been pouring out calls and knocking doors for months. They’re sharing Wendy’s message voter to voter -- and today, I encourage you also to help Wendy finish strong during these final eight days of her campaign. Can we count on you to make an urgent contribution  to help Wendy share her message through Election Day? The overwhelming support Wendy has generated across the 9th District has motivated more volunteers, donors, and supporters to join our team every day. Our phone bank is buzzing. There is a large group canvassing our local community to talk about Wendy’s extensive experience, selfless years of service in the U.S. Air Force, and proven leadership. Our team is doing everything it can to help Wendy, and with just eight days to go, we need everyone to do his part. I encourage you to help Wendy share her message far and wide during these closing days by chipping in. Together, we’re surging to victory on November 4th. Wendy has pulled out all the stops to get our her message. 18-hour days are Wendy's new normal. We can’t let her down. We need your help now. --
Martin Mastro, Campaign Manager
·       LD28 House Candidate Shawnna Bolick: Sometimes a big endorsement speaks volumes, such as the Trial Lawyers’ decision to spend big bucks opposing my candidacy for LD­ 28 state representative while supporting my opponent, liberal Eric Meyer.  They’re right to oppose me, because I want nothing to do with the Trial Lawyers’ agenda: making money for trial lawyers while imposing massive costs on the rest of us. It is shocking that someone who touts his training as a doctor—as Eric Meyer does—would accept the Trial Lawyers’ support, given their role in driving medical costs ever- higher due to the skyrocketing expense of malpractice insurance. I believe there should be legal recourse when someone is harmed by the negligence of someone else. But too often, the Trial Lawyers file frivolous lawsuits that companies are forced to settle because of the high costs of defending them. And class ­action plaintiffs often receive little or nothing while their lawyers walk away with millions. The costs of those big paydays are passed along to the rest of us in the form of higher prices and reduced access to medical services. I strongly support tort reform that requires plaintiffs and their lawyers to bear the costs of frivolous lawsuits and limits damages. Tort reform is a major reason for the tremendous economic growth in Texas, and we can do even better in Arizona. That’s why the Trial Lawyers will spend what it takes to defeat me and elect their friend Eric Meyer.
·       CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: Friend, the latest polls have the race between Andy Tobin and Ann Kirkpatrick neck and neck. There are just a few undecided voters left. The scary thing is that Ann Kirkpatrick is outspending Andy Tobin 4 to 1. With that kind of money advantage, Kirkpatrick and Pelosi might get to those undecided voters first. If we want Andy to win, we can’t let that happen. Here’s how we can help. Andy is just FOUR days away from the last monthly fundraising deadline of the entire election. Help Andy blow past his last monthly goal by donating Right Now.  We can’t let Andy get outspent by as much as he is right now. Not only is Ann Kirkpatrick going after him, but Nancy Pelosi and her extremist friends are spending millions to defeat him too. With an election this close, every dollar will make a difference. Donate whatever you can right now to help Andy defeat Ann Kirkpatrick and win back this House seat. Let’s win this thing. -- Ben Quayle
·       Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey:  Tomorrow marks 7 days from Election Day on November 4th.  We have come an incredibly long way in the months since I  announced my candidacy.   In just over a week, Arizona will choose who its next governor will be.  For me to be that person, I need your help in the final stretch. We have a lot to do in these final days and it cannot be done with you. I need you to sign up for a shift or two to help volunteer to make calls in the final 120 hours. This is it.  So I am asking you, will you go all in with us in the last few days and help me get across the finish line in first place?
·       CD2 Candidate Martha McSally:  Often, when you only have 30 minutes or so to spare, getting to our HQ to make calls just isn't in the cards. That's why we're making it easy for you to pitch in for Martha with whatever time you can spare...from your home. Day 8: Make calls for Martha from home. Believe it or not, there are thousands of voters who receive early ballots yet never fill them out and make their voices heard. Reaching these people to remind them to vote is the extra effort that can make the difference this election. If you can spare any time to make calls from your home before Election Day, please email me at or call (520) 488-4610. I will send you an updated list of voters and script to use to remind them to vote. Every effort, no matter how small, is important, and we appreciate all you're doing to power us across the finish line. – Matt Brown – political director
·        CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: This is the second email you’ve gotten from us today. I know it’s annoying, but we’re running out of options. We’re still short of our final end of the month fundraising please: can you donate $50 Right Now before our last fundraising deadline? Link to chip in ASAP
