Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s final debate started out as a polite fight over policy that featured a far more cordial tone than their previous engagements. That lasted almost 30 minutes. Trump and Clinton then began interrupting one another and moderator Chris Wallace during exchanges over Russia and immigration, with Trump telling Clinton “you’re the puppet” and Clinton clearly trying to get under the skin of the GOP nominee. full story here
Hillary’s-4-H Visit: One of the Secret Service Agents who was with Hillary that day was so disgusted by her treatment of the middle class families that He Relayed The Information To Author Ronald Kessler for his book. “she turned to a staffer and said, ‘what the f- did we come here for? there’s no money here,’” the agent told Kessler.
Coalter Baker, Arizona Communications Director, Donald J. Trump for President: "This is the second day in a row that Hillary is sending a surrogate to Arizona to provide cover from Millennial voters as they continue to show no enthusiasm for her candidacy. Unfortunately for Chelsea, she's having to continue to defend her mother after reports surfaced recently that Hillary degraded these same young voters for 'living in their parents' basement' and being trapped in a 'job that doesn't pay a lot.' Chelsea continues to pander to Millennials on her mother's behalf to no avail -- we're tired of career Washington politicians who represent the corrupt and failed policies of the past, and we will vote for change in November."
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus: “Tonight Hillary Clinton gave a textbook display of her dishonesty and evasiveness. Instead of being truthful with the American people, Clinton misrepresented her position on immigration, failed to admit to her foreign policy failures as secretary of state, and dodged how her State Department was awash in conflicts of interest connected to the Clinton Foundation. Americans don’t want a president who will double down on the failures of the last eight years. Donald Trump is committed to a strong national defense and an economy that works for all Americans, and he is the only candidate ready to shake up Washington and give a voice back to the American people.”
Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas on U.S. District Court Judge Reed O’Connor’s affirmation of an injunction that prohibits the U.S. Departments of Education and Justice from mandating transgender bathroom policies in Arizona’s districts and schools. “This decision is a victory for local control and for Arizona schools and students. The idea that federal bureaucrats know best when it comes to everything, even management of school bathroom facilities, is ludicrous. Those decisions should be left to the school boards and communities responsible for keeping students safe, not dictated by a one-size-fits-all policy from Washington. Each one of our state’s many districts and schools is perfectly capable of determining how to create and sustain a safe environment for students with input from parents, educators and community members. I am confident that under their supervision all Arizona children are treated with respect and dignity and have access to a school setting that is conducive to learning. There is simply no excuse for this type of federal overreach, and I am pleased that this ruling will put a stop to yet another attempt by the Obama administration to strip away states’ control of their education systems.”
The Western Pinal County Chapter of the Arizona Republican Assembly will meet at 6:30 pm., Mon., Oct 24 at 400 N Sacaton St #2 in Casa Grande to hear Pinal County Sheriff candidate Mark Lamb.
LD 9 PC Grady Rhodes: “I attended the Legislative District 9 AZ House Clean Elections Debate on October 14. Our only LD9 candidate on the ballot is Ana Henderson and she won the debate hands down. The two Democrats are far left and far-far left. Although the video of the debate is not yet posted (as of this writing), I encourage you to search for the video on-line to see if it is now available then view the debate to see who will be representing LD9 if Ana is not elected. Then I would encourage you to help Ana, participate with one of the Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) efforts or be a poll watcher. Ana has a sign wave on Friday Oct. 21 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM at Oracle Rd and Wetmore Rd and she continues to walk neighborhoods daily talking to voters. And LD9 GOP is planning its own GOTV effort so stay tuned for the details. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.” - Borrowed from the Pima GOP Weekly Etracks
"After An Evening Of Lots Of Rest and hydration I'm back up and running," said Frank Schmuck this morning as he returned to campaigning for Arizona State Senate in Legislative District 18 representing Ahwatukee, and parts of Chandler, Mesa and Tempe.

We have a viable long term plan to solve this integrated problem without raiding the rainy day fund or jeopardizing the safety of our community and state. Getting our message out door-to-door, at events, via mail, social media and through www.TeamSCHMUCK.com is how we can and will do that so that voters understand the clear choice of who can solve their problems and represent them well."

AZ National Republican Committeeman Bruce Ash on Trump: The Republican National Committee is in “full coordination” with Donald Trump despite many media reports stating the opposite, says Bruce Ash, of Tucson. “Whatever you’ve been reading in Politico, The Hill or the Washington Post it is a bunch of bull ...,” Ash said Monday. He said neither the RNC nor vice presidential candidate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence need to be in a position to apologize for what Trump said in a 2005 conversation while riding in a bus to a soap opera taping. Trump’s vulgar comments about women in it sparked a wave of criticism after it was leaked Friday. Ash went on to say speculation that Pence would drop out of the race was made by people distant from the campaign. “The vice president was never serious about leaving the nomination, that is a bunch of bull, too,” Ash said. On Saturday, Sen. John McCain joined several other prominent Republicans in withdrawing support from Trump. Ash said he still plans to vote for McCain, but worries the senator might lose support for refusing to back the party’s nominee. “I think voters who are Trump supporters would hold their nose and vote for McCain,” he said. “There will be some voters who will punish him, and this is going to be a close election.” McCain reacted too harshly, Ash said. “He should have waited until the fire died down and kept his cool. And he didn’t, he reacted,” Ash said. Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake has also disavowed Trump, but is not facing re-election in this cycle.Ash declined to discuss House Speaker Paul Ryan’s announcement Monday that he would no longer defend Trump. He praised the “more adult” way that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell handled the issue. “He didn’t get rattled when the bull started flying, he kept his cool,” Ash said of McConnell. As for the RNC pulling funding for Trump, as reported by Politico this weekend, Ash said that also was inaccurate. On Monday, the chairman of Arizona’s Republican Party, Robert Graham, said he’ll keep on supporting Trump as well. In a lengthy statement, Graham said there’s no way to defend Trump’s comments, but “let him who is without sin cast the first stone.”
