Trent-Franks Circulating Letter Calling For Cruz Or Rubio To Drop Out Of Race Congressman Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican, sent the letter to fellow Republicans Wednesday evening. He's asking would-be signers to back his push to rally the establishment around either the Florida or Texas senator in an effort to defeat Donald Trump, the current frontrunner for the GOP nomination. The letter argues that one candidate should continue on in the presidential race while the other is named a vice presidential candidate. "We call upon all national security, free-market, and pro-family conservatives to boldly rally around the two of you together and ask you both to answer the call of statesmanship and decide between yourselves which shall be the candidate for President and which shall be the candidate for Vice President,” the letter says.
The Wall Street Journal: Donald Trump Resists Calls For Tax Returns AND Politico: Romney: Trump's Tax Returns May Contain 'Bombshell' Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney is calling on Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio to release their tax records. Romney said Trump has been “dodging and weaving” on when and even if he will release his tax documents. “We really out to see … what their taxes look like to see if there’s an issue there. I think in Donald Trump’s case, it’s likely to be a bombshell,” the 2012 GOP presidential nominee said.

Mitch McConnell-Preparing-To-Sacrifice-Presidency-To-Save-Senate-Seats …While still hopeful that Marco Rubio might prevail, Mitch McConnell has begun preparing senators for the prospect of a Donald Trump nomination, assuring them that, if it threatened to harm them in the general election, they could run negative ads about Mr. Trump to create space between him and Republican senators seeking re-election. McConnell has raised the possibility of treating Trump’s loss as a given and describing a Republican Senate to voters as a necessary check on a President Hillary Clinton, according to senators at the lunches.
Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman: My friend, County Supervisor Andy Kunasek, is a gentleman who believes in civil dialogue, and professional, honest government - traits he learned from his father, Carl. Andy trusts the people. He trusts democracy. Since 2012, four new supervisors joined the Board. In our early days, Andy was like a generous older brother who shared his knowledge. He supported our ideas and initiatives. He gently nudged us not to get wrapped up in the politics but just be principled leaders. Andy is patient. He listens, and makes sure that everyone around him has a meaningful role. He knows how to cool tempers and find solutions, and his steady hand in times of crisis has been critical. There are many tales that illustrate Andy’s leadership, spirit and integrity. On one occasion, a constituent reported a dead cow on the roadway. So Andy jumped in his truck and pulled it off to a safe location (and tracked down the owner by its tag). That’s Andy Kunasek, more comfortable irrigating his fields with a Four Peaks in his hand then sitting on the dais in a suit. Andy could have sought higher office any number of times. Yet he was happy serving the county and other political leaders, while maintaining his family and home in Arizona as his first priority. What greater legacy could any person leave? Editor’s Note: Hickman says, “I came out of the business world and threw my name in the hat for the appointment to Maricopa County BOS. I had the LUCK to not only meet Andy for the first time as a job "interviewer" for the County, but I got to serve alongside of him as an equal.” Kunasek has opt not to run for re-election. county-supervisor-andy-kunasek-to retire-after-19-years
PC Barbara Medal: "What is the Constitution? A document, delineated by the mighty hand of the people, in which the principles of fundamental law are established. It contains the Permanent will of the People, and can be revoked only by the authority that made it."(The people) --William Paterson. The 24th Amendment abolished any poll tax nationally and in principle that should apply to our delegate elections. Unfortunately, in order to control and impede the process and the will of the PCs we find an undue burden to participate in the election with this fee, which is in essence, a POLL TAX. Chairman Robert Graham repeatedly chooses to dismiss, with regularity, the protocols and long standing procedures that have been used to determine our AZ Party rules.
Bylaws do permit organizations to regulate meetings but nothing supersedes the Law of the Land, for we are a governed nation Of, For and By the People, in accordance with the Constitution and not an organization to be controlled or taxed on the whim of a leader to retain absolute power or raise funds on the backs of the people whose only desire is to serve their nation and who do contribute not only financial support but many hours of service to ensure the well-being of our nation. This is to exclude some PCs from participation in the process. Many PCs are fed up and should no longer tolerate this control. We must hold accountable and oust those who fail to fulfill their duties and serve the PCs rather than rule them. Those in leadership must be held accountable and be removed by the PCs and by demanding true representative leadership. One would ask why this principle does not apply to our Republican Party elective process? Medal is the Maricopa County Republican Committee’s Sgt-at-Arms.

AzCDL Update: The following bills passed out of the House Committee of the Whole (COW) and are scheduled for one more floor vote (Third Read) before being sent to the Senate. The emails to your Representatives have been updated to urge them to vote for these bills during Third Read. See links to send your message.
HB 2300 would prohibit the state and local governments from enforcing or using resources to aid in the enforcement of federal laws related to personal firearms. HB 2300.
HB 2338 is the AzCDL-requested bill that would prohibit the governing boards of educational institutions from banning firearms on public rights of way, such as city streets and sidewalks that happen to pass through campuses. HB 2338.
HB 2524 is the AzCDL-requested bill that would establish an interstate compact that restricts member states from enacting firearms transfer requirements that are more restrictive than existing federal law. HB 2524.
In the Senate, we are expecting to see SB 1257 on the COW calendar this coming week. SB 1257 is the AzCDL-requested bill that would exempt CCW permit holders from being disarmed when entering state and local government controlled property unless everyone entering is screened for weapons. If you have not contacted your Senator about SB 1257, click here to send your email.
RTS Action Needed: Also needing your support in the Senate is HB 2224, which would prohibit the state or any political subdivision from charging or levying a fee, tax, assessment, lien or other encumbrance on the transfer of a firearm between private parties who are not prohibited possessors. HB 2224 passed out of the House and was sent to the Senate on Feb 19. HB 2224 is scheduled for a Senate Government Committee hearing on Wednesday, March 2nd. Now is the time to use the Request to Speak (RTS) system to tell the committee members that you want them to support HB 2224.
If you had registered your opinion on HB 2224 when it was in a House committee, you will need to again register your opinion for the Senate committee. The “votes” do not carry across chambers.
HB 2224 RTS Instructions:
· Log into your RTS account and click on the big blue Request to Speak logo.
· Select “New Request” from the menu on the left side of the screen.
· Enter “2224” in the Search Phrase box and click on the blue “Search” button.
· After pressing the “Search” button, scroll down and you’ll see a box with information about HB 2224.
· Click on the blue “Add Request” button in the right side of the box.
· Click on the circle next to the green thumbs-up icon.
· Click on the “No” icon to answer the “Do you wish to speak?” question. Unless you plan on spending your day at the Capitol waiting to testify at a committee hearing, always select “No.”
· Click on the blue "Submit" button when you are done.
Detailed instructions for using the Legislature’s Request to Speak (RTS) system can be found at AzCDL’s RTS page along with a direct link to the RTS system.
RTS accounts can only be created at “official” terminals at the Capitol. If you are an AzCDL member and your membership is current, our volunteers will set up an RTS account for you. All you need to do is reply to this message and request that we create your RTS account. The status and summary of bills that AzCDL is monitoring can be found on our Bill Tracking page.
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the results of the South Carolina Democrat primary: “The Democrat Primary continues to deteriorate into a race to the extreme left with voters forced to make an impossible choice between one candidate facing an FBI investigation and another that’s a self-proclaimed socialist. This contest was not supposed to be close, yet we’ve seen both candidates pull off blowout victories and its clear the longer their race to the far-left drags on, the more unelectable each of these candidates becomes. The momentum and enthusiasm is clearly with the Republican Party. Each Republican contest has seen record turnout while the Democrats have lagged behind the GOP and fallen far short from the turnout eight years ago. Hillary Clinton was supposed to be focused on the general election, but here she is heading into Super Tuesday, still having failed to put Sanders away. It’s clear Clinton cannot escape the fundamental flaws of her candidacy or the multiple investigations into her secretive and reckless conduct that will surely haunt her throughout this election.”
Anita Christy: The Legislature’s Pyrrhic Victory? SB1416 Strips Superintendent of Power. If the Arizona Legislature succeeds in passing Senator Jeff Dial’s SB1416, giving the State Board more power than it already has, this is what they will have accomplished: Turned Arizona’s only elected official within the Department of Education into a water boy kowtowing to 10 members of the State Board of Education. The performance record of the Arizona State Board of Education:
· 1) In 2005, the SBE lowered the bar for high school graduates, by reducing the passing grade on the AIMS test.
· 2) The SBE spent thousands of dollars developing new Math standards in 2008/2009, only to dump them for Common Core Math in 2010.
· 4) In adopting CCSS, they disregarded ARS15-203(A)(10)(12)(13), which requires them to present a budget to the legislature relating to the accomplishment of its purposes, as well as a fiscal impact statement of any proposed changes to the minimum course of study or competency requirements and, on completion, send a copy to the director of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee (JLBC). It wasn’t until 2013 that ADE estimated that the cost to implement Common Core would be $387 million;
· 5) The SBE has adopted assessment after assessment, the latest of which (AzMerit) has proven to be expensive, un-validated, worthless, and psychologically harmful to Arizona's children.
· 6) The SBE has placed children at serious risk of teacher misconduct. State teacher investigators, working under the direction of the board, inaccurately recorded about a third of their teacher investigations. Between 2010 and 2015, 79 cases of teacher misconduct were not properly reported, by investigators under Board supervision, to state and national databases. A teacher, whose certificate was revoked in Oregon managed to get a teaching certificate in Arizona two months before she was charged with 10 felonies in Oregon, for allegedly having sex with a student.
