Republican Briefs

Dewit Riding High After Trump Win, But Says Arizona Is Home Now that Donald Trump has won, Jeff DeWit is back in Arizona full time but dogged by talk that he's going to benefit from his support by getting a post in the new administration. DeWit won't say definitively that he won't leave. 

Due To The Clinton Supporters campaign of harassing phone calls, e-mails and threatening messages bombarding our Arizona Electoral College appointees, along with speculation  as to whether Arizona College Elector Jane Lynch would cast her electoral vote for President elect Donald Trump, Briefs asked Lynch yesterday afternoon, where she stands on the upcoming Dec 19 issue. Lynch replied, “I have never stated anything other than that I am committed to cast my Electoral Vote for Donald Trump. I am astounded that anyone would state differently. Both Politicos articles (August and November) stated such commitment.”  Editor’s Note: There you have it folks, straight from the long-time Republican activist. Trump has Lynch’s electoral vote. No one should have to take the abuse our Electoral Appointees have taken the past week from those intent on getting them to change their electoral votes. Threats can be intimidating and it is time consuming to weed out hundreds (some days thousands) of “junk” messages from the ones you need to respond to. Nuisance senders need to stop their flood of demands and disrupting the lives of the electoral voters across the nation. – ft

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus: Nearly three weeks after the presidential election, the numbers showing President-elect Donald J. Trump's victory are coming more fully into focus. He won 306 electoral votes, the most for a Republican since George H. W. Bush in 1988. He carried 9 of 13 battleground states. Millions of Americans rallied behind his message of rebuilding our country and disrupting the status quo. Here are some stats on the scope of his win:

1.    A groundswell of support: Trump won over 2,600 counties nationwide, the most since President Reagan in 1984. Additionally, he won over 62 million votes in the popular vote, the highest all-time for a Republican nominee.

2.    Turning blue counties red: Trump won over 200 counties nationwide that Obama won in 2012. This was the most counties won by a Republican since 1984.

·         Pinellas County, FL: Trump won Pinellas County, while in 2012 Obama won the county by nearly 25,000 votes.

·         Ashtabula County, OH: Trump won Ashtabula by 7,500 votes, a feat no Republican had achieved in decades.

·         Macomb County, MI: Trump won Macomb County by 12%, or over 48,300 raw votes, while in 2012 Obama won the county.

·         Racine County, WI: Trump won Racine County by 4,000 votes, while in 2012 Obama won the county by over 3,000.

·         Erie County, PA: Trump won Erie county by over 2,000 votes, while in 2012 President Obama won by nearly 20,000 votes.

3.    Converting key Democrat strongholds: President-elect Donald J. Trump’s message resonated with voters in historically blue states.

·         First time winning Wisconsin since 1984.

·         First time winning Pennsylvania and Michigan since 1988.

·         Only second time winning Iowa since 1984.

4.   Resonating message: Trump campaigned in places he knew Republicans have had difficulty winning. It's clear the Trump win was one that brought Americans of all backgrounds together. With the election in the rear view mirror, Trump is now concentrating his energy on being a president for all Americans and doing the hard work of making sure his administration is ready to deliver results for the nation on day one.

Republican National Committee (RNC) Co-Chair Sharon Day: "With the death of Fidel Castro we hope that the millions of Cubans who have suffered under his repressive and murderous regime will be able to look towards a future of peace, freedom, and prosperity," said Day. Though there is still much work left to be done to ensure the liberty of the Cuban people, we pray that this moment proves to be the dawn of a new day for the island. Today, we stand in solidarity with those who still live under the political tyranny of the Castros in Cuba, and we reflect on the sacrifices made by those who never wavered in their quest for liberation."

"Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades.

Congressman Matt Salmon: "With the death of Fidel Castro it should be a new day for the Cuban people.  Throughout his dictatorship, the Cubans suffered from economic malaise and both religious and political persecution.  Sadly, these policies continue under current President Raul Castro and the Cuban people continue to suffer under a crippling tyranny that stifles their economic freedom and curtails their basic human rights. In spite of this, the Obama Administration has naively moved to normalize relations with Cuba.  Their optimism is sadly misplaced. The Cuban people remain captive to a tyrant who exploits their work and fails to guarantee them the most basic human rights.  While the death of Fidel Castro should bring change to the Cuban people, sadly it will likely mean little to the average Cuban. I hope that President-elect Trump will advocate for real change in Cuba and help rescue the Cuban people from the backward policies that continue to enslave them."
