Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus on the House GOP leadership elections: “I would like to congratulate my good friend Paul Ryan on his unanimous re-election as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Together with Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Majority Whip Steve Scalise and Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers, we have a strong leadership team in the House to advance the bold reform agenda that President-elect Trump and all of our candidates up and down the ballot campaigned so hard for. Republicans have also chosen a strong NRCC chairman in Steve Stivers, who will do a fantastic job to protect and expand the majority. I’m excited about the future that awaits in January, when our unified Republican government gets to work to turn Donald Trump’s historic victory into real results for the American people.”

Michael Steele: Donald Trump is ‘the freest president we’ve had in a generation’ In part one of a two-part conversation, the former Republican Party chairman discusses how the president-elect will govern differently from how he campaigned.

Goldwater Institute CEO Darcy Olsen: One of the most contentious elections of all time ended in a way few saw coming. Many commentators and political “experts” are claiming our nation can’t come together for a common cause. They’re already throwing in the towel before the new president is even sworn into office. These naysayers are dead wrong. The electorate wants to see a change in Washington. This change should be driven by the states. At the Goldwater Institute, we know firsthand that using this weapon is something all Americans can agree with. The U.S. Constitution provides a floor for freedom. We have the opportunity to use state constitutions to protect freedom far above that federal baseline. The U.S. Constitution remains silent on the rights of crime victims to have a voice in the courtroom, but 33 states boast constitutional directives protecting the right of victims to a speedy trial and restitution from the offender. The Washington Supreme Court has interpreted many state constitutional provisions more generously than the U.S. Constitution, including safeguards for free speech, religious freedom and the right to bear arms. Last month a lifesaving treatment for neuroendocrine cancer became available for patients without federal approval, thanks to “Right to Try,” a state reform we developed and passed into law. This is the first time in more than 50 years patients and doctors did not have to ask permission from the federal government to take a lifesaving medicine. Americans in 32 states have made that freedom a reality. By working in state Legislatures and courtrooms, we will continue to advance the cause of liberty across the country. This election cycle has reinvigorated Americans to seek change like never before. We are in a unique position to augment that desire for a reformed, limited government by aggressively promoting and vindicating our freedoms state to state. The Goldwater Institute will remain at the forefront of this effort.

CONGRESSIONAL STATEMENTS

300 word limit policy. If statements exceeds the limit, it will be edited.

Congresswoman Martha McSally today voted in support of the Iran Sanctions Extension Act, legislation to extend sanctions on Iran for 10 years. Originally enacted in 1996, the provisions put in place by the Iran Sanctions Act are set to expire by the end of the year. Today’s bill extends sanctions on Iran’s illicit weapons programs and ballistic missile development that were not suspended as part of the nuclear deal and provides legal statutory authority to re-impose or “snap-back” many of the most powerful sanctions on Iran’s energy industry. “Instead of reigning in Iran’s destructive actions, the Administration’s nuclear deal has emboldened Iranian leadership as they continue to march toward a nuclear capability,” said McSally. “Iran, infused with billions in fresh cash from the nuclear deal, continues to fund terrorism throughout the Middle East. They continue to test and develop intercontinental ballistic missiles in violation of international agreements. And they continue to declare their ambitions to see the destruction of Israel. Today’s legislation extends the tools at our disposal to prevent Iran’s acquisition of weapons and ballistic missiles and sends a strong message that the House is serious about holding Iran to its international obligations.” McSally opposed the Iran nuclear deal, aka Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. August 2015 op-ed in the Arizona Daily Star. On September 14, 2015, McSally voted in opposition to H.R. 3461, a bill to approve the Iran agreement. Speaking on the House floor before the Sept14th vote McSally said: “I rise today on behalf of those who do not have a voice in this debate, and that’s the over 500 service men and women who died in Iraq because of the export of vehicle-borne IED technology by Iran and the brutal terrorist leader, Qassem Soleimani…This is a slap in the face to those who paid that sacrifice.” The Iran Sanctions Extension Act passed the House 419-1 and now goes to the Senate.

  STATE LEGISLATOR’S COMMENTARY

The entire LD 6 team including myself, Rep Bob Thorpe, and Senator Sylvia Allen, will be returning to the legislature to continue the fight for small government, a balanced budget, better K-12 education, and many other important issues that face our state. It is supporters like you who make this election worth it. It would be impossible to name every supporter without missing someone so let me just say thank you! To view 2016 Election Results, go to: http://results.arizona.vote/2016/General/n1591/Results-State.html Looking ahead to the Legislature, I have already begun preparing for the work ahead. Because of your support during this election, Republicans will continue to have a majority in the legislature and I will continue to support legislation that truly benefits Arizonans.
