LD18 PC Larry Hilliard: Apparently John Kerry (Sec of State) has a solution to terrorism... the media should just stop reporting on it! See john-kerrys-latest-solution-to-terror-is-brilliantly-imbecilic Well, following his reasoning, then anti-Semitism, racism, sex trafficking, crime, and anything bad would go away if the press would stop reporting on it. I don't think so... we Republicans and especially our party leaders should promote a program of "Talk with Us" - we want to heal the wounds!

Maricopa County Supervisor, District 1 Candidate Denny Barney: “I would like to thank all of you for your support during the Primary Election and my first term in office. I am grateful for the trust and confidence you’ve placed in me. More than 800,000 people live in the district I represent. A little over half of those are registered to vote (161,860 Republicans; 119,773 Democrats; 154,712 Independents & other party affiliation). The Democrats, under the direction of the Clinton campaign, have invested money in turning Arizona blue. They have increased their registration numbers and turned CD-09 (which is part of my district) into a Democrat majority district. I have an opponent in the November General Election. Independent voters will matter and so I plan to work hard to earn their - and your - vote! To be successful I need your help to continue representing conservative values on the Board of Supervisors. If you are able, a donation of any amount would go a long way. Whatever you’re able to give, whether it be donation would be incredibly beneficial! Thank you again for your support.

Former LD30 Chairman Timothy Schwartz: Some of my friends still are apprehensive about Donald Trump. You've seen the 'selected' sound bites and listened to the media's crafted spin of the selected bites. I challenge you to watch the entire video of the policy address delivered right here in Phoenix last night, August 31st, 2016. Then determine for yourself if your perception has been changed! I personally did have a conflict with ONE of his bullet points! But the rest of the entire address was right on, in my opinion...Watch the entire trumps immigration policy speech in Phoenix , and then please let me know if you are disturbed about anything here, and if you are able to assist in making sure he wins so that Hil-liar-y doesn't.

LD25 Itasca Small Write-In Campaign Update: The Election results are not in yet for the LD25 State Senate Race. The ballots are first processed by computer.  After that, the Write-In Votes will be hand-counted.  The hand-count process is scheduled to begin on Fri, Sept 2 . . .Thank You to everyone in LD25 who voted for me. And, Thank You All for your support! Prayers are always appreciated, as we pray for those conducting the hand-count!

CD candidate Christine Jones: "While America is more than $19 trillion dollars in debt, and battling enemies at home and abroad, our government is subsidizing the salary for aides employed by the Clinton Foundation, and the Clinton's private email server. How can we trust someone with a track record showing such poor judgement and little regard for the American people and their tax dollars?  If we can't trust her with salaries and servers, how can we trust her with the nation's budget and security? This is yet another reason we need a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of this now." 

Sheriff Paul Babeu: “At a time when American leadership has disappeared, Mr. Trump will restore the respect our heroes have rightfully earned and keep America strong.  Career politicians have simply not done their jobs, especially considering the lack of urgency to correct the insufficient care given to veterans through the VA and the last thing we need is Hillary Clinton giving America a third Obama term.  As a veteran, I know we can't afford another four years of failed policies that have undermined our veterans and our military strength.  Our veterans deserve better, and we will vote for Donald Trump in November."

Former CD4 House candidate Ray Strauss: The primary election is over, the voters have spoken, and while the vote didn't go the way we had hoped, now is the time for all of us to unite for the November election. I wish to congratulate Rep. Paul Gosar on his victory. I pledge to do my part to ensure that congress remains under GOP control. Finishing second is always a bitter moment, but meeting and getting to know you has been one of the highlights of my life!  My family and I wish to express our deepest thanks to every one of you who trusted me with your support and our volunteers and staff who worked on the campaign. I trust that in time you will see that we made a difference while logging over 100,000 miles to engage you where you live.  God bless you, and God bless Arizona.

Town Crier Jim Ely: See“Vote Spoiler Dirty Trick Saves John McCain Again” at “ Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: “A political party (from Latin: pars, Genitive partis, "part", "portion") is a political organization that typically seeks to influence, or entirely control, government policy, usually by nominating candidates with aligned political views and trying to seat them in political office.[1] Parties participate in electoral campaigns and educational outreach or protest actions. Parties often espouse an ideology or vision, expressed in a party program, bolstered by a written platform with specific goals, forming a coalition among disparate interests” There you have it - a completely ineffective Republican Party leadership!   If one reads Title 16 of the ARS one will see that the given duties of the Precinct Committeemen is very limited.  ARS goes on to say that the duties for PCs are to be laid out in the AZGOP by laws.  Then if one reads the AZFGOP bylaws one will see that there are no duties for PCs given. The PCs are the ones most given to ‘grassroots politics’.  From the elected county PCs we have elected state committeemen.  Now, who would be more in tune with ‘grass roots politics’ than state committeemen??  And, the state committeemen elect their own leaders!!   Then at a state party meeting of the elected State Committeemen Senator John McCain was censored.  But the 80 year old master politician knew that the party leadership would not support the censor and decided to run again for reelection.  And won the primary!!  And, in light of what has gone on before, what does that say about you party leadership???   Leadership!   No wonder we are having more and more individuals registering as Independents!    Does the Republican Party have any Leaders??  Had you rather see a Lion in charge of a herd of Sheep, or a Sheep in charge of parade of Lions??
