· LD23 House Candidate Jay Lawrence will be featured at a meet and greet by Members of the Ancala Country Club between 5-7 pm, Thurs., Aug 7. Lawrence will explain his opposition to Common Core, Medicaid expansion and discuss his plan for school district consolidation, a $300 million saving for the state.
· Outgoing Chandler City Councilman Jeff Weninger is concerned that with sparse media coverage of the city council campaign is overlooking that “council candidate Jon Beydler touts his record as the mayor of Fountain Hills, but what he doesn't tell the voters is that he was recalled shortly after he became mayor. He is now a candidate for the Chandler Council with the platform of strong schools. I want to be clear. The City of Chandler does not regulate or control education in any way. We have separately elected school boards that run our school districts. His attempt to link the City elections to the education of our children is disappointing.”
· A Gubernatorial Candidate Forum is scheduled at 7 pm, Aug 7 at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort, 7200 N Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale. Moderated by Erik Ketelaar and KFYI Host Jim Sharpe, and will air on KFYI. Call 888-510-1996 or www.bumpmybusiness.com for tickets.

· Congressman Paul Gosar: The House of Representatives finished up a busy week before the August district work period. I am very much looking forward to being back in Arizona and spending time with family, friends and constituents throughout the entire month of August and getting away from the politics of Washington D.C. I will be busy traveling throughout the district. Before I caught my flight west, the House stayed in session longer than expected to pass immigration legislation aimed at alleviating the border crisis at our Southern Border affecting all Arizonans. I have been extremely vocal in my opposition to give this President and his administration any opportunities to further expand his unconstitutional attempts at granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. So let me make this clear: The United States Does NOT Need Comprehensive Immigration Reform that results in amnesty …Only For the President to ENFORCE our Current Laws and for a couple minor tweaks to flawed policies that fail to secure the border. I oppose amnesty in any form. I have been leading the charge in holding this Administration accountable for the ongoing crisis they created at our Southern border. I believe that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) needs to be terminated. As a result of this, I led the effort that caused two flawed immigration bills to be pulled from the House floor on Thursday and replaced with alternative bills on Friday. These new bills better addressed the direct problems at our border and included increased border security, expedited removal of illegal immigrants and additional funds for National Guard troops to be deployed to secure the border. My constituents sent me to Washington to protect Americans from the disastrous efforts by the Obama Administration to grant amnesty to millions of immigrants flooding our border. I will continue to fight for LEGAL immigration and against the devastating consequences of failing to uphold our immigration laws.

· Congressman Paul Gosar: The Results are in! Earlier this year I sent a mailer to constituents. Almost 1,800 of you put a stamp on my survey and sent it back to me. I very much appreciate your feedback. I have always said I need to hear from you. I get real ideas and opinions from you that I take back to D.C. and smack them in the head with.

· Important Election Information :
· Aug 20 - Early voting ends (Ballots not mailed by the 20th might not be counted right away and should be taken to the polling place.)
· Aug - 26 - Primary Election Day
· Candidate Yard Signs In Your Neighborhood Are Legal. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees your right to free speech, and state law supports homeowners' rights to display political yard signs during election season -- despite HOA rules which may try to restrict your rights. See HB 2609 and it's clear that an HOA cannot enforce sign regulations that are more restrictive than those of the city, town or county according to AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham. If you are living in an HOA and run into this situation, visit the AZGOP Facebook page and tell your side of the story.
· Former Sen Russell Pearce: Yes! Proposition 122 To Appear On The 2014 Ballot Is A Critical State’s Rights Proposition: Delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787 feared an all-powerful federal government. They had just fought a bloody war to free themselves from the tyranny of the English King, and they weren’t about to risk their precious freedom on far-away bureaucrats who might try to centralize power and take away their rights. So, the Founders wrote a constitution that established a federal government with layers of checks and balances that would protect liberty and put chains on the power of the central government. The federal government was prohibited from exercising any powers NOT delegated to it, and the powers that WERE delegated to it were few and enumerated. Further, everyone understood that the powers held by the federal government were not powers that it assumed for itself but powers that were delegated to it by the states. The states were to be a check on the abuse of power by the federal government – that is, the states were to be watchful and rein in the federal government whenever it began to usurp authority not delegated to it.
Little by little over the last two centuries, the federal government has assumed more and more power that rightfully belongs to the states, and the states have not performed their proper role of checking abuses by the federal government. Onerous environmental regulations, control over education, using the IRS to target political opponents, mandating health care, writing laws via Executive orders, rewriting other laws passed by Congress, and bailing out private companies are just a few examples, and the list goes on and on. It’s time to recognize that a federal law that violates the U.S. Constitution is not a law at all. Prop 122 will strengthen Arizona’s effort to oppose federal violations of the Constitution. Vote “YES” on Prop 122. -- Pearce is the Former President of the Arizona State Senate, the Former Chief Deputy for America’s Toughest lawman, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, and Host of “The Russell Pearce Show” on KKNT-960 “The Patriot” in Phoenix

WHAT CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:
· CD candidate Martha McSally: Wow. We knew Ron Barber was willing to do just about anything to make his big-money backer, Nancy Pelosi, happy - but we didn't anticipate this. Yesterday, Ron Barber voted against a bipartisan bill to help secure our border and relieve the humanitarian crisis. I guess falling in line with Nancy Pelosi was more important than standing up for us. Despite an ongoing crisis at our border, Ron Barber voted against: (1) Increasing resources for Customs and Border Patrol operations, (2) Increasing National Guard presence on the border, (3) Increasing humanitarian assistance for unaccompanied minors including medical care and treatment, vaccinations, bedding, education services, and therapy for children who have experienced trauma or abuse during transit, (4) Increasing funding for temporary immigration judges to help relieve the backlog of cases in immigration courts, (5)And authority for Arizona to reallocate existing state and local grant funds for costs related to combating illegal immigration and humanitarian efforts. It couldn't be more clear - we need a representative who will work for us, not Washington. Martha McSally is a leader who brings new ideas to secure our border and will fight for us.
· LD25 Senate Candidate Dr. Ralph Heap: This is the most important week of the election. Our campaign is very proud of the fact that we have focused on the positives of politics by discussing the Principles, the Platform, the Policies, the Performance, and the Positions taken at the legislature these last two years.Our campaign is about the Record over Rhetoric. I don't really know my opponent, but I am sure he is a good man who cares about his family, and does great good in the community. I take issue with his voting record as my representative at the legislature. He votes with the Democrats on too many key issues, that affect the public policy and laws we have to live under. We are completely different candidates and the choice is yours. If you should decide that you want the city and state to go into a different direction, please contact 100 of your closest friends and family this week to ask them to vote for Heap for senate. It is a now or never moment. 80% of all voters will vote by early ballot. 50% of that 80 percent are sending their ballots back this week! We are pleased by the momentum our campaign has received this week alone, and humbled by the support of so many volunteers. This is a winner take all primary, and I want to represent you at the Arizona State Senate! Please don't hesitate to contact me about other ways to help, or with any questions you have. I feel the best leader is a listener, and I want to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org 480-825-7718
· Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey: When we kicked off our campaign in February, I pledged to give this race my all, run with a full heart, work hard every day, and take nothing for granted. And it's been some of the most fulfilling work I've ever done. We've campaigned in every part of the state and met with people of every background. We've recruited hundreds of volunteer and , delivered thousands of yard signs .If you're one of the many Arizonans who will cast your ballot at an early voting location or by mail before the 26th, I ask for your vote in these next few days. To check the status of your early ballot, click here. The work we do today and tomorrow will have a huge impact on the result of the race. We need to reach as many people as possible. Please reply to this email email@example.com if you can come into our headquarters and make phone calls for me today or tomorrow. I can’t do this without you. I can’t do this without you. Thank you for your support. Let's keep it up!
