·       MCRC Chairman A.J. LaFaro reminds everyone, “the passage of Proposition 122 on November 4th is extremely important to help preserve Arizona's sovereignty and 10th Amendment rights.  Below is Russell Pearce's "Statement in Favor" that will appear in the November 4th Voter Information Pamphlet:

o   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.  -  Senator Russell Pearce, Former President of the Arizona State Senate, 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:

Send to repcomm@cox.net or frosty@mcrcbriefs.org  Briefs does NOT endorse candidates, nor candidate statements. Statements longer than 250/300 words will be edited/condensed.

 

·       LD11 Senate Candidate Scott Bartle:  A complaint was filed with the Secretary of State and Citizens Clean Elections Commission today against Rep. Steve Smith and the nonprofit organization he founded, Secure America’s Border. Secure America’s Border was a defunct organization until Smith, its chairman and president, reinstated it last month. The complaint alleges Secure America’s Border made an illegal contribution to Smith’s campaign, illegally acted as a political committee and failed to include required disclaimer in a mail piece. It also alleges Smith violated the law by accepting the in-kind corporate contribution. The complaint stems from a direct-mail advertisement sent by Smith – just days before the primary election – that solicits donations to build a border fence and mail a “no amnesty” pledge to U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner. The includes an article about Gov Jan Brewer signing Smith’s bill into law in 2011. It requests donations be sent to Smith’s attention in Colorado and promotes a website that does not exist.  “It’s sad, but I’m not surprised,” Bartle said. “Mr. Smith has proven through this campaign he will say and do anything to get elected. We must demand accountability, transparency and honesty from our elected officials.” Not a single foot of fencing has been installed as a result of the 3-year-old “build a border fence” bill Smith authored, and it is not clear what Smith intends to do with the money he has raised. “It’s ironic Mr. Smith continues to promote his role in building this non-existent fence. After four years as a lawmaker, his greatest legislative achievement is a failure. Residents of LD11 and our great state deserve a senator who will focus on real solutions to our challenges.”

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Doug Ducey:  The election is almost here!  Come help us make the final push this weekend. Congressman Trent Franks, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, Maricopa County Supervisor Steve Chucri and many others will be at campaign headquarters to help me contact as many Arizonans as possible. If you have a couple of hours, please join us.  The election will be over in only a few days, and I really need your help to make sure my conservative message is heard. We have made it a long way since February, but there is still a lot to work to do.  Please help me by volunteering this weekend, and don't forget that today is the last day to put your early ballot in the mail to guarantee it arrives on time.

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs:  My rivals are working overtime trying to convince my supporters that I have little chance of winning the nomination for Governor.  They're hoping their tactics discourage my supporters and suppress my vote.  That's quite simply because with each day, I build more momentum and gain more ground! I've lead in every recent newspaper poll (San Tan Valley News/East Valley Tribune, the Arizona Daily Independent [Tucson] and the Capitol Times' straw polls).  I'm also the only candidate to finish first or second in every straw poll taken at official Republican Party meetings (legislative district meetings and the Maricopa and Yavapai County Republican Committee meetings) and have the highest percentage of the total vote from those straw polls.  The precinct committeemen and women participating in the straw polls represent a good sampling of "high propensity" Republican voters most likely to have already voted or planning to vote on Tuesday. I intend to work as hard as possible right through primary election day.  I'm not saddled with the baggage of my chief rivals who have engaged in mudslinging for several weeks over all sorts of allegations pertaining to deliberate distortions and misstatements, unpaid property taxes and liens, bankruptcies, business failures, multiple traffic tickets and failure to pay or appear in court on those citations, even a DUI arrest.  I know you have to be as disturbed and concerned as I am (after all, I used to enforce the law!).  Those foibles may be human but they're surely fodder for the Democrats in the general election.

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Bennett: With yesterday’s news that Arizona must immediately increase its funding for schools by more than $300 million, it’s imperative our next Governor have the experience to successfully navigate the stormy fiscal seas ahead.  That’s why next Tuesday’s Primary Election is so important.  Your vote will have a direct impact on the state’s education system and fiscal future. Huge debates have raged for years about how much, or little, Arizona spends on education.  While more than half of the state’s budget is directly dedicated to education, most reports show our state near the bottom in the amount of spending per K-12 student.  During my four years as Senate President, I fought for more than $1 billion in new funding for education.  The highest four-year increase in state history.  If the Copper State is to become the place we all want it to be, we must do a better job educating our children and keeping our financial commitment to our schools.On Tuesday, you can make that happen by electing a proven leader who will strengthen standards, support teachers, protect choice and improve accountability.  I will be that Governor. Have you returned your early ballot?  Do you vote at the polls?  Make sure it counts, or confirm where your polling place is located at https://voter.azsos.gov.

 

·       LD23 Senate Candidate Jeff Schwartz And House Candidate Effie Carlson: We cannot thank you enough for all of your support, help, and amazing efforts on behalf of our campaigns. Together, we can make a difference for Legislative District 23 and all of Arizona's citizens. As a final push, we need supporters at polling locations . We are asking for at least one 3-hour shift to hand out information on both Jeff and Effie to each voter (we will provide everything you need!). This simple step may make the difference in a person's vote and will definitely showcase the great support that we have in the district. SIGN UP HERE If you cannot do an entire 3-hour shift we need your help with phone calls or even a short shift at the polls.  click here  For individuals signing up for the first shift, we ask that you take a few yard signs with you to place around the polling location. We ask those individuals taking the final shift to pick up any signs that are left. Contact our campaign by here and we will pick up the signs from you within a few days of the election. This election is very close! One vote could make the difference for both of our campaigns. Please help in anyway you can.Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your encouraging words, wonderful friendship and amazing support! It is because of YOU that we are confident that we will successfully become the next LD23 State Senator and LD23 Representative.

 

·       CD9 Wendy Rogers: Wendy Rogers is working tirelessly to become our next congresswoman.  With just days left until the primary on August 26, we're asking for your help to see her through to victory. I’ve just stepped out of our finance meeting, where we established that we’ll need to raise an additional $5,428 between now and Election Day to stay on the airwaves.  donations Wendy has been so consistent in her efforts. She needs us to stand with her over these final days and hours. We absolutely must close strong to win this primary election in order to take on incumbent Democrat Kyrsten Sinema. A generous donation   Will ensure Wendy remains on othe airwaves through the 26th and able to share her message far and wide across the 9th District.  Thank you,

·       CD2 Candidate Chuck Wooten: Thank you to everyone who came out in support of Chuck Wooten at Sullivans for Cocktails & Conversations with "The Beautiful Man, James T. Harris, 104.1 KQTH. We were privileged to meet so many new people. We appreciate your enthusiasm and support.  Don't forget to invite others to come out to meet us.

Meet at South La Canada Drive & West Esperanza Boulevard, Green Valley.  And Park Rally with Wooten! - and Frank Riggs for Governor!12:30 - 2 pm, Veteran's Memorial Park, 3105 East Fry Boulevard, Sierra Vista     See events calendar

 

·       Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs wants primary voters to know he's committed to protecting our state sovereignty and all Arizonans against federal government overreach.  Riggs also says, "My candidacy threatens the political establishment because I can't be bought and am not 'owned' by them, nor do I 'owe' anyone political favors. My character and leadership capabilities were forged by my military, law enforcement and congressional service that taught me moral and physical courage and the absolute importance of honesty and integrity. While my primary opponents are running their campaigns on bombastic, untested rhetoric and would require 'on-the-job training,' I'm running on my deep, proven record.  I'm tried and true, and ready to lead on Day One. You can trust me to be a champion of liberty, and the strong and courageous governor we need to make our state a bastion of freedom based on personal and civic responsibility, and a shining example of constitutionally limited government...of, by and for the people."

 

·       LD25 Senate Candidate Ralph Heap: Three More Days to G.O.T.V- Get Out The Vote.
