·       Attention LD Chairmen.  The deadline to submit memorials for the January 2015 Maricopa County Republican Committee’s  Statutory Meeting is Sat, Dec 12. The MCRC wants to recognize and remember fellow Precinct Committeeman who passed away this past year. Please keep the memorials to 250 words and include a photo. The memorials will be printed and put into each Precinct Committeeman’s packet for the Statutory Meeting.  E-mail memorials to LD12 Chairman Mickie Niland at


·       To All MCRC Precinct Committeemen Interested In Running For A MCRC Executive Office: Chairman, 1st Vice Chairman, 2nd Vice Chairman, Secretary or Treasurer. In accordance with the 2014 MCRC Continuing Bylaws, you must send a "Letter of Intent" by 5 pm, Dec 6, via e-mail to Chairman LaFaro at Even if you're possibly running as a member of a slate, you must e-mail your "Letter of Intent" separately. - - A. J. LaFaro,   Chairman, Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC)


·      Supporters-Stacking-Deck-For McCain “…They started the process by "Arizona Grassroots Action PAC sending out slates of precinct committeemen to vote for in the primary election. The next step was to take over the vote for state committeemen in each legislative district. An operative from in the legislative district during the organizational meeting for elected officers and state committeeman, from the floor nominates the precinct committeeman chosen by the PAC to be a state committeeman. The only perceived litmus test is the PC is favorable to Senator McCain, the PC nominated from the floor to become a state committeeman may have never attended a legislative district meeting, only to be a PC and chosen by the PAC. In January 2015 the AZGOP will meet with officers to be elected for State GOP Chairman and Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman to be elected by the State Committeemen. So far we don’t know who will be running for each Chairman’s position. Will the PAC’S chosen one follow suit and be nominated from the floor or have they already been chosen? Please open all the links to get company names. Has this happened in your Legislative District?”  See full story stacking-the deck


·       GOP Precinct Committeeman Alert:   Posted by Arizona Freedom Alliance  and  regarding statewide legislative organizational meetings.


·       Chairman Of Maricopa County GOP Files Motion To Dismiss Retaliatory Lawsuit: Dennis I Wilenchik, attorney for AJ La Faro, Chairman of the Maricopa County Republication Party, filed a Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit that was filed against him for actions he took to protect the integrity of the early balloting process in the General Election in November. The Motion to Dismiss has to assume the truth of the allegations, but argues it still fails to state a claim for relief based on that assumption as a matter of law. La Faro seeks attorneys’ fees against the Citizens for a Better Arizona for filing the lawsuit without substantial justification and for the purpose of retaliation.

·       Outraged-Americans-Melt-Phones-On-Capitol-Hill   GOP's Sessions: Obama's amnesty 'worse than you think' :  “I don’t think the American people are mad at immigrants. They fully understand that immigrants would like to come to America. They’re mad at their government and their politicians. That’s what the anger is about, because we refuse to do the right thing,” Sessions said today in remarks made at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.

·       Gila County Republican Officers Elected- Nov 15

Chairman: Gary Morris

1st Vice Chair: Lolly Hathhorn

2nd Vice Chair: Sam Moorhead          

Treasurer: Don Ascoli                                                                                                                                                                             

Secretary: Shirley Dye   


·       ATTN LD Chairman:  As you elect new officers and state committeemen, please forward the list of new officers/state committeemen to MCRC Communications Chairman Frosty Taylor at or  so we can update communications records.


·        Gila County GOP Chairman Gary Morris reports the final General Election tally has Gila County at 54.86 percent voter turnout.... the highest of all Arizona Counties. He reminds us that in August when State Senator Chester Crandell was killed in a horseback riding accident just prior to the Primary that LD6 Republicans selected Sylvia Allen on Aug 26 to replace Crandell  in the General election. “With very little time to campaign Gila County Republicans push the ground game hard and pulled her across the finish line. It was a spectacular, come from behind, almost impossible campaign to win. Her opponent had many months of campaigning ahead of her,” he said.  Newly elected state Senator Sylvia Alan racked up 67 % of the vote in Gila County, compared to just 33 percent for Independent Tom O’Halleran. The two Republican state house winners for District 6 also drew much stronger support in Gila County than elsewhere in the district …and burying Democrat Lanny Morrison. The only place Republicans didn’t romp through North County came in the curious case of the Payson School District elections. In that case, Republican Darlene Younker lost to Democrats Shelia Deschaaf and Angie Prock by the narrowest margin …Prock got 36%, Deschaaf -  32 %, and Younker – 31%. Every single North County precinct went for Republican Diane Douglas over Democrat David Garcia when it came to State Superintendent of Education race. Douglas won statewide by 1-2 percent of the votes, but by an 11 percent margin in Gila County.


·       Gila County Votes for Republicans: General election results-

                       Republican Governor Ducey (60.59%)

                        Republican Secretary of State (58.60%)

                        Republican Attorney General (59.48%)

                        Senator Sylvia Allen (66.82%)

                        Representative Brenda Barton (40.11%)

                        Representative Bob Thorpe (41.29%)

In 2010 Gila County Republican registrations trailed the Democrats by 7 percentage points. Today Republican are 12.6 points ahead, according to Gila County Chairman Gary Morris.


·       The Town of Fountain Hills Thanksgiving Day Parade will include the Fountain Hills Republican Club entry and many politicians, elected officials and notable Republicans.  A forty foot Battleship USS Arizona BB 39 float will be a part of VFW Post 7507's entry which leads the parade.  After the parade the USS Arizona float will be available for viewing at American Legion Post 7507".


·       LD22 PC Daniel Stefanski: It appears that out of all of the states in the Union that had 4 or more statewide offices up for grabs this past November election, only 15 states elected the entire Republican statewide office slate. One of those states included Arizona. With all of the talk of local and statewide Democrats to turn Arizona blue, this was no accident; this was the direct result of terrific leadership at the top of the Arizona Republican Party with Robert Graham leading the charge of some of the most dedicated grassroots activists in the nation.
