· Gov Doug Ducey On Congressional Efforts Regarding Refugees: "If ever there were a time to put politics aside, it's right now. With reports that even officials within the federal government have previously expressed concerns about the screening of refugees, it remains imperative that this issue be taken seriously and that our government put the security of the American people first. On Monday, I called on national leaders to act with urgency in protecting our homeland, and I am encouraged by efforts in Congress to pause refugee admissions from Syria and Iraq until we have a new standard of verification and assurances to the public.This legislation is a good first step, but it should not be a last step. It’s still important that states have greater oversight and authority in this process. I hope leaders on both sides of the aisle can come together and place the security of our nation before all else."
· The Arizona Republican Assembly (AzRA) has established a Speakers Bureau of highly qualified members who are available to speak to conservative clubs and community organizations, including Republican Clubs, AFRW Chapters and AzRA Chapters. The current speakers and their topics are:

· The National Republican Congressional Committee announced that CD1 Candidate Gary Kiehne was named an “On the Radar” candidate – the first tier of the “Young Guns” program that promotes the top GOP candidates for Congress across the country. Today’s rollout of “On the Radar” candidates was the first in the 2016 cycle by the national campaign committee that helps to elect Republicans to the House of Representatives.
Kiehne issued the following comments in response to this announcement: “We have been grateful for the enthusiastic response to our campaign, and it’s an honor to be named to this national list of Republican candidates running in top congressional districts. It is critical that a candidate with a bold vision wins this seat in 2016, and I’m committed to working hard to earn victory in both the primary and general elections. As I’ve traveled the district, I've heard folks express over and over again their desire for fresh leadership from outside of Washington and from those who have real world experience. As an Arizonan who shares our district’s rural values, I have the experience and have demonstrated success as a small business owner and job creator who knows what is needed to get government working for Arizonans again.”
Born in Springerville, Apache County, Kiehne is an Arizona cattleman and small business owner. He owns three hotels in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District and works in the oil and gas industry. Kiehne and his wife Julie have three children, Mendy, Holly and Chance, and four young grandchildren. A roper, Kiehne is a member of the United States Team Roping Association and the World Series of Team Roping. An avid outdoorsman, he is a lifelong member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and belongs to the National Rifle Association. Contact: Kiehne for Congress on Facebook and Twitter.

· Arizona Republican Assembly (AzRA) Chairman Thayer VerSchoor is urging the public to submit their comments by Friday, Nov 20 on K-12 Math and English Standards to https://k12standards.az.gov. Here’s now:
Click on “Comment on Standards” fill out the required info – then click on the “Subject” box and choose the ELA and when it opens, comment “Adopt the Massachusetts Standards” (Do not pick a grade, it is not required) Scroll down and hit the “submit” button.
When you submit, it will return you to their home page. Click again on “Comment on Standards”, fill out the required info, except click on Math in the ”Subject Box” Again, the comment should be "Adopt the Massachusetts Standards " (Do not pick a grade, it is not required) Again, scroll down and hit the “submit” button.
“Putting a lot of the other stuff on the comment might be therapeutic for us, but the reality is they will probably not read it and if they do, they will twist and contort it to get to a Common Core like standards. We know Massachusetts is generally a liberal, progressive area, but Dr. Sandra Stotsky drove the process there and she is the leading national opponent on Common Core and a true conservative when it comes to k-12 standards.Again, The comment should be "Adopt the Massachusetts Standards" for both the Math and ELA subjects. This simple directive on what to use for standards leaves them no wiggle room,’ VerSchoor said.

· Congresswoman Martha McSally and Senator John McCain today after reports that A-10 Thunderbolt II’s were used to destroy over 100 oil-tanker trucks in Syria as part of stepped-up strikes on ISIS targets. “A-10s are again demonstrating their lethality and irreplaceable role in our military when our country needs it most. If the Administration had its way, we wouldn’t have these one-of-a-kind attack jets available to strike at ISIS targets and carry out the vital missions for which they are uniquely suited. Time and time again recently, we’ve seen the A-10’s number called up to protect us; whether it’s in Europe to deter Russian aggression, along the border with North Korea, or in the fight against ISIS. It just shows again, that when the world turns to us to defend against the dangerous and growing threats we face, we turn to the A-10. We’re proud that the National Defense Authorization Act once again keeps the A-10 flying for the next fiscal year, and we will continue to do everything we can to prevent the Air Force from prematurely retiring this vital aircraft.” McSally spoke on the House floor yesterday about the A-10 strikes in Syria.
