Gila County Republicans Censure Senator John McCain – AGAIN: “For the second time since 2013, the Gila County Republican Party has censured Senator John McCain for his continued lack of adherence to Republican principles and the desires of his Republican constituents in Gila County as well as the extraordinary negative and misleading campaign literature and ads towards a fellow Republican candidate, according to Gila County Republicans Chairman Gary Morris.
The censure from the May 14 Precinct Committeemen meeting states, “The Gila County Republican Party cannot, and will not, support Senator McCain in the upcoming elections.
“In early fall of 2013, The Gila County GOP first censured McCain for abandoning Republican principles as well as his participation and leadership in the “Gang of Eight” along with the Senator’s conscious and arrogant abandonment of the desires of his Republican constituents. Those eight senators drafted a poorly designed, ill thought out, “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” bill. Ultimately, Congress rejected the bill following substantial opposition from the public.
“Following Gila County’s lead in 2013, other Arizona County and Legislative Districts also passed resolutions censuring McCain for his abandonment of Republican principles. That led to the Arizona Republican Party, at its January 24, 2014 State Statutory Meeting, also passing a resolution, by a large margin of votes, to censure the Senator, for his abandonment of Republican principles.
“McCain’s troubles with Arizona Republicans continued. As an unannounced and surprise speaker at the State Statutory Meeting in January, 2015, the Senator was booed and shouted down immediately upon entering the convention hall by more than 800 attendee’s, which continued for several minutes as he attempted to speak. Shouts of “Trust is earned” and “Go home” were repeated over and over.
“McCain has continued his arrogant abandonment of Republican principles and the desires of Republican constituents in Gila County, thus the motivation for the second resolution to censure the Senator, according to Morris’s press release.
“With Senator McCain’s history, the Gila County Republican Party cannot, and will not, support the Senator in the Primary election on August 30th and suggest Republican voters seriously consider another Republican candidate who has a committed and demonstrated history to Republican principles and who can properly represent the desires of Republican constitutes in Gila County.” – Contact: Morris 602-803-7366
Gila County Republican Party Censure of Senator John McCain
When candidates for office campaign as Republicans, the electorate expects them to commit themselves to Republican principles when in office, and further.
ü Senator McCain was, at one time early in his career, a staunch Republican, and committed to Republican principles, as well as committed to serving the interest of his Arizona constituency, and further;
ü Senator McCain’s recent and past legislative performance demonstrates a drift to left of center in favor of Democrat philosophies and principles, and further;
ü Senator McCain has demonstrated greater interest in, and has repeatedly demonstrated support of Democrat interests, and less support of Republican interests, and
ü Whereas Senator McCain has amassed a long record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrat interests, such as amnesty, funding for Obama Care, raising the debt ceiling, and he continues to support liberal judicial nominees, while avoiding any demonstrated opposition to the liberal assaults on the Constitution and the second amendment, and
ü Whereas Senator McCain’s record of failing to support Republican principles and much of his sponsored legislation has been harmful to the citizens of Arizona and the United States; and,
ü Whereas Senator McCain has campaigned as a conservative and made promises during his re-election campaigns, such as the needed and welcomed promise to secure our borders and finish the border fence, and yet he has repeatedly failed to aggressively pursue or support those promises; and
ü Whereas Senator McCain has abandoned the core values of Arizona Republicans and has been eerily weak or silent in opposing Democrat legislation and Democrat assaults on Republican principles; and
ü Whereas Senator McCain has repeatedly and publicly severely criticized, or reprimanded, fellow conservative Republicans in Congress and his own party, therefore;
ü Be it hereby resolved that the Gila County Republican Party censures Senator McCain for his continued disservice to the Republican party, the citizens of our state and nation, and;
ü Be it further resolved that until the Senator consistently champions, and demonstrates support for, Republican principles and our party's platform and values, we, the Gila County Republican Party in Arizona will no longer support, campaign for, or endorse John McCain as our U.S. Senator. - May 14, 2016, Gila County Republican Committee
After All The Uproar And Upheaval over the election of delegates/alternates to the Republican National Convention back in April, the GOP is now looking for 20 alternate replacements. AZGOP Robert Graham’s right-hand man Aviansh Iragavarapu has written to the AZGOP Executive Committee giving them first dibs to the openings. See updated-national-convention-delegate-list Iragavarapu points out, “Due to the total resignations of 8 delegates and 12 alternates in the total delegation (113), there are 20 vacancies in the alternates list.” He cautions the potential appointees:
1) The chance of being a delegate, and therefore Vote, will be very slim to none as the appointed alternate will start at the end of elected alternates, as the bottom of the list…”
2) The alternates appointed MUST pay $1,250 to the AZGOP. This covers the cost of entertainment with the delegation and special events. The elected people paid $1,000 and the guests paid $1,250. In the context of pricing, appointed people will be considered as guests.
3) You have to pay separately through credit card for hotel reservation. The hotel reservation is minimum 5 night stay as per RNC.
4) You have to make your flight reservations separately.
The appointed people will not get a chance to vote as the appointed alternate will start at the end of elected alternate. The deadline for appointment nominees in Mon., June 27. Contact: Avinash at 917-754-1146.
Notables delegates and alternates who resigned: Attorney General Mark Bronich, Secretary of State Michele Reagan, State Treasurer Jeff DeWit, Board of Supervisors Denny Barney, former gubernatorial candidate Frank Riggs, former Congressman John Shadegg, former Phoenix City Councilman Bill Gates, author M. Zuhdi Jasser and with Paul Marchant, Phyllis Ritter, Julie Richie, Sherese Steffens, Shasron Harvey, Patricia Flores, Robert Westerman, Greg Hansen, Gary Livacari, Phillips Ramsdell, Jacqueline Phillips and Water Steiner.
Delegates Unbound National Ad Campaign Launched Urging RNC Delegates To Follow Their Conscience When Casting Their Ballot For The Republican Nominee
Reports Are Surfacing that a nationwide group of Republicans determined to unbind delegates to the Republican National Convention to prevent Donald Trump from winning the party’s nomination - held a 1,000 attendee conference call last Sunday. Delegates and alternates, along with members of the convention Rules Committee, were reportedly involved. It seems three groups are heading up the Dump Trump movement:
- Free the Delegates ,led by Kendal Unruh, a delegate from Colorado and member of the convention Rules Committee. website and Facebook.
- Delegates Unbound, according to The Hill, contact Eric O’Keefe - founding member.
- Courageous Conservatives, led by Steve Lonegan of New Jersey. Founded to support Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign.
Dale Gohr of Clarkdale: The “Conspiratorial Plan” by a Cadre of Republican Convention Delegates may unseat Donald Trump as the “Presumptive Nominee” and allow the “Delegates” to choose “The Nominee”. They will have to change ‘Previous Convention Rules’ and make sure there is nothing in the new rules to prevent them from their “Shady Manipulation Scheme”. Then ‘I believe’ the “Conspiring Convention Delegates” will simply abstain from the first round of voting; clearing the way to cast their vote for their individual choice in the second round. They can make the “Rules for this convention so different that they bring in someone who never won a single state (Jeb Bush) or someone that did not even throw his hat into the ring but made lots of noise (Mitt Romney) and elect that person as Republican Nominee. I do not trust them with the power they have. I ask people to contact the RNC https://www.gop.com/and insist they put this “Unchangeable Stipulation” into the Convention Rules: “Any abstention (including absence) from voting in any round of delegate voting will negate any subsequent votes or voting by that delegate for the remainder of the current convention”. The justification is the fact that these “Convention Delegates” are supposed to represent the will of the Republicans in their state, not their own agenda; which means the 1st round should go to the Republican frontrunner in their State. This will surely be more important to states other than Arizona; where the “Low Life Arizona Delegates” altered the “State Convention” to steal the “Winner take all” delegates from Donald Trump; even though we voters certainly chose him. Please contact the Republican National Committee; and ask them to make sure the aforementioned “Stipulation” gets included in the Rules for the 2016 National Convention. The RNC Chairman is Reince Priebus. Contact: Gohr firstname.lastname@example.org

Tom Morrissey, Immediate Past Chairman AZ GOP (Retired Chief Deputy Us Marshal: Hey Brian Reilly (former LD22 pc), you mentioned that there is a poll indicating that Paul Penzone is running ahead of Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a poll conducted by of all people - Paul Penzone. What a surprise! Just wanted to let you know, that in the last election cycle in 2012, when I was AZGOP chair, we had several polls at this point in the cycle which had penzone in the lead. (That time he had Dan Saban supporting him too.) There were also polls that had Dr Carmona leading Jeff Flake. On election day Arapio and Flake were the winners and not Penzone or Carmona. I remind you that this time last summer Donald Trump was the loser of the upcoming Republican State Primaries according to most polls and here we are today, with Donald Trump our candidate. The polls in England predicted that Great Britain would remain in the EU and Shazam, by Friday the exit from the EU was voted in. Polls have become tools of manipulated results because of the way the questions are pushed. Sheriff Joe has had people like you taking shots at him since he first came into office and you know the old adage, "You don't take flack unless you're over the target." Look up in the sky. Is that a bird? Is it a plane? It's Joe Arpaio!
Town Crier Jim Ely: Would emailing Sen Jeff Flake do any good? When our AZ GOP leadership just doesn’t bother to hold any of our government elected accountable for Republican values, what can we expect?? Here we have a state-wide senator voting with the Democrats. Is he representing his constituents in Arizona? And, our AZ GOP leader Robert Graham, says nothing! Neither does the AzRA. No wonder we see more and more Independent registrations. What does the AZ GOP have to offer?

I do think it is interesting that the issues where John Kerry is engaging is where Hillary Clinton did not engage in, that those decisions were left to the White House and the National Security Council," he added.
