“If you break down the word Politics, it is understandable.

 'Poly' means 'many' and 'ticks' are 'blood sucking leaches'. 

It fits.”  – Former Phoenix City Councilwoman Frances Barwood

·       An Interesting Twist. An item in the 8-4-14 Briefs noted that: Sen John McCain is being courted for endorsements by gubernatorial candidates, according to his interview with Braham Resnik regarding gubernatorial candidates campaign promises about closing the border.  Viewers are wondering which candidates are courting McCain in light of the AZGOP Committeemen and most of the County Republican Committees passing resolutions condemning McCain in January 2014.  McCain with Resnik

 

·       This Morning Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs Wrote: “I did not meet nor have I ever spoken with Sen. McCain about my candidacy for Arizona Governor.  I can't put it any more emphatically or succinctly than that.  There is absolutely no basis for his inference that I sought his endorsement.  I deliberately did not seek his endorsement, or for that matter, the endorsement of any member of the Arizona congressional delegation.  My own service in Congress speaks for itself. Rick Santorum's endorsement of my candidacy says it all.  He and McCain have been at odds for years, going back to when they both served in the U.S. Senate.”

 

·       On 8-5-14 Gubernatorial Candidate Andy Thomas Wrote: “As reported by Channel 3 KTVK, and according to Sen. McCain himself, all GOP gubernatorial candidates sought his endorsement except for me. Dennis Welch of Channel 3 tweeted this fact yesterday.  I forwarded his tweet onto my Facebook page, where you can confirm it.  Channel 3 last night aired a clip of Sen. McCain confirming this as well.” 

 

·       Hmmm….Riggs and Thomas didn’t go courting McCain. So, who was McCain referring to? Christine Jones?  Doug Ducey? Scott Smith?  Ken Bennett?

·       AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham:  We are sad at the loss of our friend Senator Chester Crandell. I was privileged to be with Chester last week as we celebrated the pioneer founders of the area he represents. His loss is a huge blow to the Republican Party, his family, and the many friends he has in this state.

In the coming days, as we celebrate his life, our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
