·       Art Olivas:   When I read this article  ducey-appoints-common-core-advocates-to-subcommittee-on-education I heard in the back of my mind. “Why you crying? Well. Why you crying?,” my Yaqui Grandfather, who died at the age of 104 yrs, was asking my brother (who fell from an old cotton wood tree). He was told he was going to fall down! He did not listen. My Grandfather was illiterate but did his best to speak English. This same American Yaqui Indian who sent his only 2 sons to World War II with these words, "If you don't kill them over there; they  will come and kill you family over here.  My uncles listened! If you read your emails that I have sent to most of you the last 4yrs, I have tried to get you to research. I have called his people John McCain's Puppets, Clowns, Democrat Rinos, and some Communist! But I don't endorse, I am not a paid Lobbyist or have any of Robert Graham and Kirk Adams' Dark Money to buy your Attention. So Republicans -- who gave up and weaken the party by not helping us fight to clean our LD's, I am going to say this One More Time!! Read Frosty's MCRC Briefs!! The key to saving our Republican Party, our LDs, our City, our state, is all there. If we lose it, who can we blame? In the back of my mind I hear my Grandfather!! Look in the mirror! You Can Take That To The Bank! I am so sweet yet John McCain and Jan Brewer don't like me! Just because I get in their face! What a shame.   


·       MCRC Chair Candidate Tom Morrissey –‘Why I’m Running’: I led us through a presidential election cycle in 2012.  We experienced the “perfect storm” when we went through a biased redistricting process, a presidential debate that had to be rescheduled, a tense state convention, warring factions within the party, lack of traditional financial support and an attempt, by the left, to brand us as racists because we opposed illegal immigration.

I met these challenges by standing on constitutional conservative principles.  We fought the redistricting debacle in court.  I reached out to all parts of the party. The Presidential Debate was a success due to the efforts of our staff, especially Lori Urban. 

We raised $3.8 million.  We had the most successful election in the history of the AZ GOP and delivered the  state to Governor Mitt Romney.  The AZGOP headquarters was painted. We added new flooring, furniture and a restored air conditioning system.  Our IT system went from virus plagued to virus free. 

I met with the Latino Christian Community, conducted monthly meetings with Univision and invited Republican Hispanics to our meetings and to join in our quest to return this nation to greatness.   I was told that I was the first State Republican Chairman that they had ever met - and welcomed them in our party. 

We championed the American African Republicans under the leadership of Reverend Clyde Bowen and Dr. CT Wright.  The Jan 1 celebration of “The Emancipation Proclamation” - one of the greatest documents in the history of this country - has become an annual event.

Constitutional Conservatism is on the march and it has a broadening horizon for our great party.  In order to nourish this movement we must take bold actions and stand against strong winds.  We have no choice but to do so if we are to save this great republic. 


·       Congressman Paul Gosar Met With Local Veterans on his recent visit to Wickenburg. “It was great to watch this caring man talk – one on one- with these veterans about VA Hospital issues. He has been working hard to get the VA to pay for services needed in their local communities. This would eliminate all of the travel now required and provide them with care now – not six months’ from now,” said veterans and former LD13 Vice Chairman Ernie McCollum. Gosar urged the veterans to visit with his staff when it comes to Wickenburg several times a year. Commander Bernie Wilson invited Gosar to speak to Post again in the near future.
