Sunday – Nov 1, 2015
· Sunday-Square-Off: County GOP Boss Defends 'No' Vote On School Ballots Maricopa County Republican Party Chairman Tyler Bowyer defends his party’s formal opposition to all 28 school funding requests on the November ballot. “Sunday Square Off” moderator Brahm Resnik asks Bowyer whether he understands the reality of school fund KPNX.
· After Viewing The Oct 25 Bowyer/Resnik Interview a week ago, Briefs sent a note to Maricopa County Republican Chairman Tyler Bowyer on Oct 26 that reads: “At the top of your interview with Braham, you mention that all 20 LDs studied the override proposals in their districts. Are those findings posted anywhere that readers can link to and read them.”
That afternoon (Oct 26) Bowyer replied, “Not as of yet, but we should be releasing some factoids and talking points for Republicans in the coming days. I'll be sure you get them once prepared.”
With the override election two days away, this evening Briefs reminded Bowyer that we haven’t received the “talking points.” Bowyer replied, “We decided not to put out any additional talking points, each district chair was able to speak directly to each override and bond for their areas and PCs.” Editor’s Note: I don’t know about the rest of the 20 Maricopa County LDs, but the Nov 3 school district override elections or participation in the MCRC EGC decision, were not agenda items for the September or October LD13 meetings.
· For Those Of You Who Have Inquired as to whether the Nov 4 MCRC EGC meeting will be held at the AZGOP office, 3501 N. 24 St., Phx., Briefs has received no meeting notice at post time from MCRC EGC for its November meeting.

· The Newest Members Of The Arrowhead Republican Women are Sue Pechkurow, Kecia Smette, Sharon Forman. New associate members are Allison Mary and Carol Jones.
· 2015 Arizona Citizens Defense League: The end of “instant” background checks? “On Wednesday, October 28, Senate Democrats promised to file legislation that would eliminate the concept of “instant” in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Currently if the FBI does not complete a NICS check within 72 hours (the federal definition of “instant”) the retailer may proceed with the sale. Under the proposed legislation a retailer cannot transfer a firearm without FBI approval no matter how long it takes. Imagine what a President with “a pen and a phone” and carte blanche over NICS processing times could do with this new authority?
“Could this proposed legislation pass given the make-up of the federal House and Senate? With the ‘whatever Obama wants, Obama gets’ attitude of the spineless Republican leadership in both chambers, we’re not sure it would be stopped.
“It’s time to rattle some cages. In 2013, AzCDL joined the National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban, composed primarily of independent, non-affiliated, state pro-rights firearms organizations. It is not controlled by any national organization. The Coalition represents what politicians should fear the most – An organized grassroots movement to defend the Second Amendment.
“To remind federal politicians who they work for, the Coalition has set up an online petition, to the members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, demanding that they ‘use all means, procedural or substantive, to defeat any legislation introduced or amended to curtail, restrict or qualify private ownership of firearms, and to oppose any executive order issued to that end.’ We encourage you to join us and add your name to the Coalition petition.”
· Grassroots-Arizonan-Crazies-Are-Interested-In-Issues-Over-Politics Entrenched U.S. Sen. John McCain may be in for the fight of his life in his 2016 re-election bid, as he uses the term “crazies” to describe the approximately 15,000 border security-advocating Arizonans who showed up for Donald Trump’s July appearance in Phoenix. Breitbart News spoke exclusively with Maricopa County Republican Party (MCRP) Chair Tyler Bowyer regarding McCain’s comments and the makeup of the crowd for the Phoenix event. McCain’s “crazies” comment came in an interview with a New Yorker reporter in which the Senator said, “This performance with our friend (Trump) out in Phoenix is very hurtful to me.” He continued, “Because what he did was he fired up the crazies.” He later tried to pass the comment off as a “term of endearment.” –July 30, 2015

· Gov Doug Ducey: Who says you can't make government work? We just did it here with the most far-reaching, high-impact education funding bill in our state's history. News like this is too good not to share, so spread the word by forwarding this message along! We've just passed, signed, and are ready to go with a bill that:
ü Puts $3.5 billion into education to dramatically improve our schools.
ü Increases per-student funding to $3,600 each year and gives educators the resources they've been asking for.
ü Doesn't raise taxes while maintaining our balanced budget.
ü Provides relief from lawsuit abuse so funds go into classrooms, not attorneys' pockets.
ü Maximizes the State Land Trust by drawing a modest amount as a shrewd investment in our kids.
I'll never forget the good friends and strong, loyal supporters who gave me this job and the accompanying charge to solve problems and get results. Your support was, is, and will always be a source of tremendous inspiration. Help me share our fast-breaking news. Tell your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues that we got something great done for Arizona's future. And we're not done by a long shot. In fact, we're just getting started!
Please comply with the 300 word limit policy
· Congressman Paul Gosar: This past week the House held elections to replace John Boehner as Speaker of the House after he resigned his position. Hundreds of Arizonans called to voice their thoughts about who our next Speaker should be. I listened very carefully because ultimately, it was your actions and votes that gave Republicans historic majorities in the House and Senate. My focus has always been on fixing our broken legislative process. The voice of the American people is silenced when power is consolidated at the top amongst a handful of members. Our next Speaker must return the House to regular order and allow for a transparent system that incorporates all members of Congress in important decisions. Based on his proven track record as Speaker of the House in Florida, I was confident that Congressman Dan Webster was the best person to fix the broken process and dysfunction that exist in Washington D.C.
I have been clear since last January that I believe the best Speaker is one who is inclusive and transparent, while pursuing the legislative agenda the people of America sent us to do--reduce spending, reform our broken tax code, secure the border and get the federal government off our backs. I voted for Daniel Webster in January and did so again this past week.
Ultimately, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin was elected by a majority of House Representatives. While I am disappointed by the final result, I am confident that I can be Paul Ryan's conscience and remind him of what his constituents sent him to DC to do: take bold action and enact conservative policies, limit the size and scope of the federal government and protect our individual liberties. While the task at hand may be difficult, we have proven that WE CAN WIN and I'm more emboldened than ever to fight the status quo in Congress. http://gosar.house.gov
