· RNC Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement in response to new reports that the Obama administration is denigrating our ally Israel. Administration officials have been quoted calling the prime minister “chickensh**.” “ISIS is on a rampage through the Middle East, slaughtering innocents and committing mass murder while plotting to kill more Americans. The priority of the Obama administration should be defeating our enemies; instead they are once again insulting our allies. It’s inexplicable and dangerous. This administration consistently gets it wrong on foreign policy. Instead of taking the ISIS threat seriously, President Obama called them the “JV" team. Now, instead of working with our allies in the region to protect democracy and innocent lives, the administration is hurling expletives at Prime Minister Netanyahu. Americans should not accept this. We should never betray our ally Israel. We need a foreign policy that is focused, not fumbling. The country is increasingly concerned about our national security, yet the administration is not inspiring confidence. Our country deserves better. Republicans will continue to work to keep this country safe. That means respecting our allies, going after our enemies, protecting our homeland, and supporting our veterans and men and women in uniform.”

Via Linda, Scottsdale, AZ 85259. “This new clinic space is a welcome step in the right direction toward improved care for our service men and women,” said Schweikert. “Our veterans deserve accessible care that meets their medical needs upon separation or retirement from our armed services. This clinic plans to offer increased access to military veterans of Arizona's 6th District and the city of Scottsdale. I look forward to the completion of this transition and hope this new building can provide reliable support for our community.”

WHAT CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:
· CD9 Candidate Wendy Rogers: My wife of 36 years, Wendy Rogers, has worked around the clock over this past year to win votes across Arizona's 9th District. Her commitment and dedication to her campaign have inspired so many. Wendy rises early every day and stays up late every night to get the job done. She has left no stone unturned to win this election so she can serve our country again -- and now it’s up to us to do our part. In one week, voters will head to the polls. I encourage you to ensure they cast their ballots for Wendy by chipping in today. Your generosity will allow Wendy to share her message on TV, in the mail, and online over these final days. I love my wife. We served 20-year careers together in the United States Air Force, much of it overseas. We have raised two great kids and now have two grandkids. We have owned our own business together. Over the past 18 years, we have created a lot of jobs as a family-run business which we still operate. I am so proud of my wife, I just can't say it enough. She will serve our great nation, because she was born to serve and lead. Wendy follows through. She listens, she assesses, then she inspires others to achieve great success. Wendy has the record of service and leadership to prove it. We need her in Congress. I can tell you that Kyrsten Sinema has never led. In fact, she chooses not to lead. We don’t need a cheerleader who's perpetually trying to win a popularity contest or who gives terrorists more rights. These are dangerous times requiring adult supervision and tested, tried-and-true leadership. Having courage and backbone means doing the right thing whenever called upon. Our country needs my wife Wendy Rogers NOW. Please donate now - keep Wendy's ads on TV. She will do great things in Congress. Please help her serve our nation again. – Her loving husband .
· CD2 Candidate Martha McSally: Friend, I don’t have to tell you that Martha McSally is the type of leader we need in Congress. But, her victory is on the line. That’s why I’m emailing you. Martha urgently needs $25,000 for her Victory Fund and we’re down to the final 7 days of the campaign. Can you help me support Martha as she fights against Ron Barber's big-money backers, who are going all in to buy his seat in Congress? They're funneling MILLIONS of dollars to spread lies about Martha in the campaign’s final, critical days. Martha has to have these additional resources so she can fully equip her field team to combat the misinformation being given to voters. Please stand with me today and support Martha so we can help her to victory in 7 days. Don’t wait - we’re almost out of time. Thank you, Mitt Romney.
