July 4, 2014 -- Independence Day
· LD13 Chairman Robert Branch: Today, 238 years ago, the people of the American colonies stood up and said that we will no longer be a part of the British Empire. And that we will be a free and independent nation. The people of the colonies, represented by the Continental Congress, said in one voice, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” (Thomas Jefferson, 1776). And with that a nations was born. Many have tested our resolve to that declaration, and all have failed! So today I wish you and your family a wonderful Fourth of July, and ask you to join me in thanking those citizens that proudly put themselves in harms way to ensure that our Nation does not perish. God bless our troops, our first responders, and God Bless the United States of America. A proud American,

CD2 Candidate Chuck Wooten's message for Independence Day: We gather as a grateful nation to celebrate 238 years of independence, let us not forget the sacrifices of Americans everywhere who have made us the greatest nation on Earth. From those who bravely stepped forward to take up arms in our defense, to first responders, teachers, shop keepers, laborers and administrators-individual determination has been the hallmark of America. With our bought-and-paid-for independence from tyranny, we continue our march of liberty while we protect our freedom for the next generation of patriots! - Chuck Wooten, Chief Master Sergeant (Ret),USAF www.wooten2014.com
· LD18 Senate Candidate Tom Morrissey: As I knock on neighbor's doors and meet people at various events, I hear the concern and frustration with the direction our country and our state is headed. Concerns specifically about:
· Our open border and the safety of our communities
· Overspending and continued debt accumulation
· Federal encroachment in our schools, businesses and industry
· Our lack of adherence to the Constitution
There is strong sentiment that our legislators have not listened to their constituents. That they have conducted business in the "middle of the night" without due process. I will listen and I will vote based upon the wishes of the community in the light of day
· CD3 Candidate Gabriel ‘Gabby’ Saucedo-Mercer: It was 23 years ago that I became a Naturalized Citizen of the United States of America, the greatest country in the world. Today, I proudly celebrate with you the commemoration of our Independence Day, which marks the 238th birthday of this great nation. Happy Birthday USA!
· CD2 Candidate Martha McSally: As we celebrate Independence Day, let's take some time to remember that we are so blessed to live in the greatest nation in the world and the only one founded on the idea of freedom. We have the freedom to celebrate with friends and family today because of the price that was paid by the great patriots who were willing to fight, sacrifice and die to create this nation on that wonderful foundation. Even though our country seems very divided right now, there is far more that unites us than divides us, and today is a great day to remind us of those unifying principles. So as we celebrate the holiday by going to parades, BBQs, and fireworks displays or just enjoying a day off, let's unite in gratitude, celebration, remembrance and pride as Americans living in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Wishing you and your family a Happy Fourth of July and God Bless the USA!

· CD2 Candidate Shelley Kais: The Republican Club of Green Valley will provide voters in CD2 the opportunity to hear all three Republican primary candidates discuss the issues so they can decide for themselves which one has the vision, solutions and strategies to tackle the serious issues facing our nation. “Our nation is in trouble and Southern Arizona is at the epicenter of many of the issues that confront us. A porous border, illegal immigration, scandals at the VA, the downsizing of military assets like Davis-Monthan AFB and Ft. Huachuca, a failing economy – it has never been more important than now for the people of CD2 to have the very best represent them in Washington. And there is no better way for voters to gain an understanding of who that might be than to have all three candidates stand side by-side and debate the issues. The debate is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Sat, July 26. While pleased that one debate involving all three candidates has been scheduled, Kais is disappointed that Ms. McSally will not commit to the July 8 NW Conservatives debate. “In my letters inviting Ms. McSally and Mr. Wooten to join me in a debate, I made clear my belief that for any debate to be meaningful it must include all three primary candidates and occur before early voting begins on July 28. Despite earlier indications that Ms. McSally would participate in the NW Conservative’s debate, I have learned she will not. Therefore, I cannot in good conscience, participate,” Kais added.
· Gubernatorial Candidate Scott Smith: Governor Jan Brewer is right. Barack Obama's failed immigration policy threatens lives and our national security. Instead of granting blanket amnesty to thousands of people who entered our country illegally, the President should first secure our border. On issue after issue, I am the only Republican candidate for Governor to stand with Governor Brewer. Last week, I called on the President and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson to use the Expedited Removal Hearings process to speed up the removal of the more than 90,000 illegal immigrants who have crossed the American border since October. I believe the Obama Administration needs to stop empowering the coyotes, cartels and organized crime syndicates who traffic in human beings. We can't allow criminals to continue to profit by luring tens of thousands more children and families by giving them false hope. These predators are victimizing would-be border crossers, and the Administration is aiding and abetting that crime. We need to send an unequivocal message not to leave your homeland. Because I stand with Governor Brewer and because I am opposed to the Obama Administration failed policies, I am now being attacked in the media by liberal immigration attorneys who support amnesty. As Mayor of Mesa, we enforced the laws, apprehended illegal immigrants and made Mesa one of the safest big cities in America. As Governor, I will do the same for Arizona. stand with me today
· Gubernatorial Candidate Christine Jones: When our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776, they engaged in one of the most heroic acts in history. They believed in fighting for freedom and took on one of the most powerful empires in the world. Whether you're hosting a family cookout, attending a community parade, or enjoying a fireworks show, I hope you’ll take a moment to remember the heroic actions that have made Independence Day and our freedom possible. Please watch my Independence Day video celebrating our exceptional history and join me in honoring America this 4th of July.
· Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Bennett: As Americans enjoy Independence Day, we should also recognize the momentous events of 1776. They changed the course not only of our history, but of human history.In the Second Continental Congress document sent to King George, the words were very powerful. "We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal" is significant due to its sheer boldness for that time in history. The founding fathers proclaimed that if it is evident to us that men are created equally, then why isn't it to you? To discuss that governments derive their powers from the consent of the governed, and that it is the right of the people to alter their own government was unheard of. Today, we hardly think that the idea that all men are created equal is radical or even revolutionary. But for the founding fathers to proudly proclaim such a belief took guts, courage and insight. Since then, the principles espoused in the Declaration of Independence have been used throughout the course of American history to win freedoms and civil rights for those originally left out. We have the world's oldest written constitution. Yet it is the simple, magnificent idea of equality and self-governance spelled out in the Declaration of Independence that makes our republic the most successful form of government in world history.Winston Churchill said, "democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried," - and that old adage remains true. Is our Government perfect? Of course not. But because of the principles and values that serve as its backbone, it is able to evolve, improve and reflect the sentiments of the time.
· Gubernatorial Candidate Scott Smith has called on the Obama Administration to immediately end its use of parole hearings to keep illegal border crossers in the United States indefinitely; instead calling on the President and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson to use Expedited Removal Hearings to speed up the removal of the more than 90,000 illegal immigrants. "We need to stop putting children's lives at risk and betraying the security of our country; we absolutely need to end the mixed message President Obama and Secretary Johnson are sending to border crossers streaming across the Mexican border," said Smith. "The Expedited Removal Process will put an exclamation point on securing the American border. The Obama Administration needs to stop empowering the coyotes, cartels and organized crime syndicates who traffic in human beings. We can't allow criminals to continue to profit by luring tens of thousands more by giving them false hope. These predators are victimizing border crossers, and the Administration is aiding and abetting that crime. We need to send a message that if you cross into this country illegally, you will be removed, no matter who you are." Expedited Removal Hearings allows for faster removal. The process should be used to remove the more than 50,000 unaccompanied children and 39,000 adults who have surged across the border in the past seven months. "This crisis will continue as long as our policy is, 'If you make it over the U.S. border, you will be allowed to stay in this country indefinitely.' We don't need to send Joe Biden to Guatemala for a photo op. We need to send a strong message by returning the thousands who were lured to cross our border by criminals. That's the statement we need to make, and we need to make it today."
