· Hell’s Still A Poppin’ in LD30. An AZGOP legal beagle has advised that the Maricopa County LD30 grassroots precinct committeemen (PC) called “Special” Monday night election of a new chairman is not legally binding as two warring camps – the establishment PCs and the grassroots PCs - continue to wrestle over control of the LD30.
The LD30 upheaval has been going on since late December 2015/early January 2015 with the challenge of newly appointed PCs. That dust up was barely worked out when Gary Hirsch’s chairmanship was challenged. He resigned just prior to a recall election in late September, which moved Bud Zomok into the acting chairmanship. Zomok opted not to call for the election of a new chairman, which angered grassroots PCs, who called a special Nov 16 meeting and elected Anna Stowe as the new chairman. The Nov 16 LD30 “Special” election meeting was overseen by the Maricopa County Republican Committee team of Andrew Constanzo – presiding officer, George Teegarden – credentials and ballots, and Barb Medal – Sgt-at Arms under the directive of Maricopa County Republican Chairman Tyler Bowyer.

· AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham today noted that the Hillary for President campaign called attention to her lack of support in Arizona by hiring two-time loser Fred DuVal to file her paperwork to be on the March 22 Presidential Preference ballot. DuVal, a Democratic lobbyist, lost a statewide election in 2014 to Gov Doug Ducey by a whopping 12 percentage points. DuVal had been a Clinton administration lobbyist and also a candidate for Congress in Arizona in 2002, where he came in fourth in the Democrat primary in then-district 1. “We have tremendous respect for the electoral process and the will of the voters, and we fully understand that a candidate’s campaign strategy and implementation don’t always work out as planned,” said Graham. “But we just had to laugh at Hillary for choosing Arizona's least popular Democrat to run her errands.”
· Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus announced today that the RNC raised $8.7 million in October 2015, breaking yet another presidential off-year fundraising record. The RNC has raised over $89 million this cycle and currently has over $20 million in cash on hand. “With just under a year until Election Day 2016 we’re seeing great enthusiasm for the GOP,” Priebus said. “We’re hard at work building a data and field infrastructure that will defeat Hillary Clinton, and thousands of enthusiastic voters from across the country have been excited to chip in for that effort. Our team is hard at work training, recruiting, and registering volunteers and voters in every community and every battleground state. The RNC is the only organization on either side of the aisle currently running a full-scale General Election field operation, and we’re able to do so thanks to the thousands of supporters who continue to give us a decisive advantage over the Democrat National Committee in preparing to win.” Fast Facts:
ü Total raised in October 2015: $8.7m
ü Total raised cycle-to-date: $89.3m
ü Total cash on hand: $20.4m
ü Percentage of donations $200 and under in October 2015: 99%
ü Average donation in October 2015: $69
ü Debt in October 2015: $1.8m
· Congressman Matt Salmon: The Fruits Of A Failed Syria Policy -- As news of the heinous attacks in Paris spread, the question on everyone's mind was simple: How can we prevent another of these deadly tragedies? To be clear, we should not have been unprepared. After all, this is the same ideology that spurred the attack on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, and the attacks in Paris just months ago on Charlie Hebdo, and it is the same danger the international community is facing in Iraq and Syria on a daily basis. It's clear the radical Islamic threat to the western world has been underestimated. Sadly, that underestimation started right here in the United States. Read More
· Due to the Maricopa County Republican Committee and AZ GOP 2016 mandatory meetings, the Fountain Hills Republican Club has moved its January meeting to Jan 23 (4th Saturday v normal 3rd Sat). Contact: Secretary Boe James 480 588-7612 firstname.lastname@example.org
· This Afternoon AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham criticized incumbent Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick,for not supporting a program to preserve national security by pausing the Syrian refugee program until additional background investigations of the refugees are in place. “This is another Democrat, right here in Arizona, who joins President Obama in turning a blind eye to world events and putting the lives of Americans in jeopardy,” said Graham. “Her interest in supporting her Democrat boss in the White House is outweighing her support for her constituents and the security of every American, and it’s a tragedy which voters are going to put an end to on election day.” The American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act (SAFE) passed the House with 289 votes, including 47 Democrats. President Obama, who lost Arizona by nearly ten percentage points in 2012, has threatened to veto the bill. Overview and text of the Act is here: house-bill/4038/text

· Presidential Candidate Ben Carson compared Republicans' push to keep Syrian refugees from being resettled in the United States to parents protecting their children from rabid dogs. "If there's a rabid dog running around in your neighborhood, you're probably not going to assume something good about that dog," Carson said during a campaign stop in Alabama. "And you're probably going to put your children out of the way. That doesn't mean that you hate all dogs."

· In This Week's Republican Address, Congresswoman Martha McSally discusses the Paris attacks and calls on the Obama administration to work with Congress to step up the fight against ISIS. This week, with a veto-proof majority, the House passed a plan that sets a new standard of verification for Syrian refugees. In addition, Congress sent the president a national defense bill that requires him to present a comprehensive plan to defeat ISIS. “We’re telling the administration to step up,” McSally says. “Take this terrorist threat seriously. The fight against ISIS is a generational conflict, and we must lead now more than ever.”Audio available here, video will be available on Speaker.gov.

· Phx City Councilman Sal DiCiccio: I am an advocate for having body cameras on our police officers. I think it’s important to respect the liberties of our citizens while also supporting our police officers. This isn’t as simple as equipping our officers with body cameras. There are numerous policies the Phoenix City Council will need to clarify and put into place. I want to fully understand how we will deal with individual privacy, privacy of the public at large, and officer privacy. We should bring forward non-aligned groups, like the ACLU and the Goldwater Institute, to share their perspectives, especially since these groups have extensive experience with privacy protection issues. I believe that the government should not videotape the daily activities that people participate in. Period. That’s where we draw the line. Arizona State University has police videotaping tailgaters. This is unacceptable. We have a right to expect privacy from our own government.
On the other hand, we need to respect the privacy of the officer and determine when the body cameras should be on and when they should be off. We do not need to have body cameras recording when our officers are not performing law enforcement activities. These are important topics that we need to delve into. I will work hard to ensure individual privacy is protected as we implement body cameras. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
