·       Santa Cruz County Republican Committee Voted To Censure Sen. John McCain tonight - joining Maricopa, Apache, Cochise, Gila, and Mohave counties, according to Santa Cruz County Chairman Zack Taylor.

 

Santa Cruz County Republican Resolution Censures Sen. John McCain.

 

As leaders in the Republican Party, we are obligated to fully support our Party, platform, and its candidates. Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders. Today we are faced with both. For too long we have waited, hoping Senator McCain would return to our Party’s values on his own. That has not happened. So with sadness and humility we rise and declare:

ü  Whereas Senator McCain has amassed a long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats, such as Amnesty, funding for ObamaCare, the debt ceiling, liberal nominees, assaults on the Constitution and 2nd amendment; and

ü  Whereas this record has been disastrous and harmful to Arizona and the United States; and

ü  Whereas Senator McCain has campaigned as a conservative and made promises during his re-election campaigns, such as the needed and welcomed promise to secure our borders and finish the border fence, only to quickly flip-flop on those promises; and

ü  Whereas McCain has abandoned our values and has been eerily silent against Liberals, yet publicly reprimands Conservatives in his own Party, therefore

ü  BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Santa Cruz County Republican Committee censures Senator McCain for his continued disservice to our State and Nation, and

ü  BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that until he consistently champions our Party’s Platform, we, the Republican leadership in Arizona will no longer support, campaign for or endorse John McCain as our U.S. Senator. --  Chairman Zack Taylor- Jan 23, 2014

If elected to the state senate, I promise to abide by the will of the people who elected me.

This is me doing my part.”  Contact for Morrissey : Christine Bauserman 520-235-2234 .

·       Haydee Dawson, A First Generation American And Conservative Leader, Is A Candidate For The LD25 House position. At the age of 9, Dawson, born in El Salvador, legally immigrated with her family to the United States. Raised in a conservative household, she graduated with honors from Alexander Hamilton High School (class of ‘96) in Los Angeles, CA., attended Mesa Community College and the Arizona State University earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and an MBA in Project Management. She was attracted to political life in high school where she saw Latino students being influenced by politically charged revisionist versions of history. She witnessed the ideologically slanted curriculum being imposed on them by activist educators seeking to incite protests against then Republican Governor, Pete Wilson. This later inspired her to join other Latino students to assist the California Republican Party in support of GOP Presidential Nominee Bob Dole. When she moved to Arizona she continued her involvement in politics. In 2000, she co-founded the the Arizona Latino Republican Association (ALRA). She become a member and leader of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors-Arizona (NAIFA-AZ). Dawson, a small business owner, has experienced the frustration of bureaucratic red tape that currently stifles Arizona’s economy recovery and growth.  Contact Dawson at VoteHaydeeDawson@gmail.com
