AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham has thanked the 75 volunteers who staffed phone banks in Phoenix, Sun City and Tucson as part of the AZGOP’s Trump Tuesday voter outreach program. Graham also announced the opening of the first round of additional party offices in Payson (Gila County), Sierra Vista (Cochise County) and Safford (Graham County) to bring the total number of field offices to six, covering five of Arizona’s 15 counties to date. The offices will be used as satellite locations to host volunteer phone banks, grassroots meetings, and training sessions as well as provide convenient locations to distribute candidate yard signs and campaign materials. Numerous additional sites are being considered for a dozen more offices throughout the state . “Our Trump Tuesday event had its second successful series of phone calls at three locations with 75 volunteers engaging voters one-on-one.” said Graham. “It’s great to see their enthusiasm for our Republican party and our nominees, and we’re looking forward to seeing the results increase next week as we bring the first six of our additional statewide party offices on line to accommodate more of our party workers throughout Arizona. We’ll have a dozen more open soon, as we’re nearly overwhelmed with volunteers who want to help the party and our candidates."
Rest-Time-No-Public-Events-For Hillary-Until Sunday …Hillary Clinton just wrapped up her one public appearance for the day, and she has nothing else scheduled until Sunday. 83 days to go, what’s she doing for the next 96 hours? Where are her medical records???
While Sen John McCain is throwing rocks at his GOP challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, his Dem opponent Ann Kirkpatrick is giving him a bruising . Yesterday’s Kirkpatrick message says CBS calls the McCain/Kirkpatrick a “toss up” and that “Sen. John McCain is in one of his toughest fights in decades.” She further notes, “McCain has changed over the past 33 years in Washington. Polls are showing that people have noticed -- and they’re not happy…” She continues, “Of course, McCain won’t give up. He’s clinging desperately to his political career. McCain and his special interest allies have already spent $3.5 million in Arizona, attacking Ann and boosting McCain’s flailing campaign. He’s promised to be on the air every single day until Election Day -- and so far, he’s made good on that promise…”
LD27 PC Art Olivas: After reading about the Wednesday night Grassroots Tea Party Activists meeting in Frosty's Briefs, the wife suggested that we attend the meeting - hoping to see some Tea Party friends. We were very happy to hear them echo our believe that we should not - and they repeated - not vote for any incumbent unless they were being put down by the Liberal media or the Republican Establishment. They said we don't have a 2 Party system. All these Republican self-serving politicians want is the power, the money and the perks that come with their office. The RINOs don't give a rat A** about us. The Latino Tea Party's (Art and Edwina) were glad to see that other Tea Party’s will not be brow beaten into political correctness. To top it off and make the trip a supper enjoyable evening we had a very informative discussion with Sheriff Joe Arpaio where he said we need Donald Trump for POTUS. We had a wonderful time!! And how was your day?
Immediate past AZGOP Chairman Tom Morrissey: This is what we are up against folks. How we know the Trump vs. Hillary polls are wrong. See Arizona Freedom Alliance in Watching the Elections and Back to Watching the Elections Discussions. The polls keep saying Hillary Clinton is out-polling Donald Trump. But we know of at least one case in which a major poll was rigged to show Hillary winning. Breitbart reports, July 30, 2016, that on the heels of a Breitbart News report showing a 17-point swing towards Trump and away from Hillary, Reuters news service “back-rigged” its polling data to show Hillary in a better light. As political polling pioneer Pat Caddell explained, Reuters dropped the “Neither” option from their presidential campaign tracking polls and then went back and reconfigured previously released polls to present different results with a reinterpretation of the “Neither” responses in those polls. Note: Thomas Reuters, owner of the Reuters News Service, is among the top photographic evidence -tier donors ($1-5 million) to the Clinton Foundation. See “News media are big donors to Hillary’s corrupt Clinton Foundation“. Caddell said Reuters “decided to go back and revise their numbers in a formula that removes voters or allocates them,” and called what Reuters did an unprecedented act of professional malpractice that “comes as close as I have ever seen to cooking the results. I suppose you can get away with it in polling because there are no laws. But, if this was accounting, they would put them in jail.” Our eyes also don’t lie. See Trump Rallies Weebly that the polls are wrong. And here’s a huge and really enthusiastic mob at a Hillary rally: But don’t just take the photographic evidence. Here are some headlines that you don’t see reported by New York Times, Washington Post, or the alphabet TV networks. Go to DC Clothesline for more
LD13 PC Scott Powelson: How To Hack The Election -- I think this in very educational in light of the fact that we know this goes on and do nothing about it. Like the ballot harvesting it is just one of the ways they can steal an election and we are unable to stop or even quantify it. 2016-elections-russia-hack-how-to-hack-an-election-in-seven-minutes
Rep Kate Brophy McGee has been recognized as Legislator of the Year by the Arizona Association of County School Superintendents (AACSS). As a 10-year former school board member, including six years on the Arizona School Facilities Board, she has always been a staunch supporter of public education. As a legislator, she voted against drastic budget cuts to education, fought for local control, and most recently was an outspoken leader for additional dollars directly into classrooms without raising taxes. Her substantial education pedigree and strong support for Arizona’s students, parents, teachers and administrators earned her the award from AACSS, according to the AACSS press release.

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus responses to reports that the Clinton Foundation will stop accepting foreign and corporate donations if Hillary Clinton should win the presidency: “This effort to shield Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation after more than a year of controversy is too little, too late,” said Priebus. “After all, if everything was above board while Hillary Clinton ran the State Department as the Clintons have said, then why change a thing? But now that they have admitted there is a problem, the Clinton Foundation should immediately cease accepting foreign donations and return every penny ever taken from other countries, several of which have atrocious human rights records and ties to terrorism. The fact that the Clinton Foundation and its entities continue to accept foreign donations while Hillary Clinton runs for the White House is a massive, ongoing conflict of interest that gets bigger by the day. This is unprecedented and unacceptable. When that 3am phone call comes, Americans deserve to have a president on the line who is not compromised by foreign donations.”

Corporation Commission candidate Al Melvin: Bob Burns Support For Smart Meters --Corporation Commissioner Bob Burns recently suggested that APS should be allowed, through smart meters, to control the temperature settings in approximately 1,000,000 Arizona homes, overriding what the home owners themselves want or need. I disagree with his position. This is just one more of a number of disagreements I have with Mr. Burns. Commissioner-bob-burns-wants-aps-to-control-your-thermostat

Maricopa County County Supervisor, District 1 Incumbent Denny Barney: Early voting is here! By now you should have received your early ballots. If you haven’t voted yet, I sincerely ask for your vote. Your support is invaluable to me. Serving the people of Maricopa County District 1 as your County Supervisor for the last four years has been an honor and a tremendous opportunity. We have had incredible success on the Board of Supervisors promoting fiscal responsibility, increasing transparency, and implementing conservative principles. But, we still have work to do. Maricopa County has some tough challenges ahead and I am committed to working towards positive solutions. To learn more about me and what I stand for, please watch my campaign video below by clicking on the photo or this link. Also, be sure to keep up with us on Facebook!
CD4 candidate Ray Strauss: The upcoming primary is coming toward us very quickly now, and this campaign is poised to win it. But there’s no such thing as a sure thing, so we need to turn up the heat even more. Our efforts have been carried out by a dedicated staff and many hard working, visionary volunteers. Can I count on you to help by volunteering to make phone calls or knock on doors? Could you possibly contribute to help us air more ads next week, the last full week before the primary? We need to keep getting our message of compassionate, honest leadership out to voters. And we need to rouse those voters to vote early or get to their polling places on Election Day and vote! I plan to win this thing, and I think you’ll agree that we need a new face in Congress to say what you want said, and do what you want done. Let’s make it happen!
