LD24 PC Tristan Manos: "When some things representing a real and existential threat to America may pop up, like this guest on Tucker Carlson's show, it's good to see there's people like Tucker to keep things in check. It just goes to show how 'We The People' must take action to rightly identify, understand, promote, and reinforce 'The American Way' for the good of 'Keeping The Republic,' for our generation and future generations."

West Valley PC Jane Schutte: Laura Ingraham endorsing Kelli Ward is a big deal.  She usually vets her endorsements.  I trust Kelli Ward will keep to her promises on fighting the establishment on issues the people want passed.  I am an avid listener to Laura Ingraham and feel she is a person who cares about our Country.  I think Republicans need to support Kelli Ward and hopefully she will be the only one running on the Republican side against Jeff Flake.  We tend to undermine our purpose when many candidates run for one office and divide the votes.

Chairwoman McDaniel: We Need a Middle-Class Tax Cut …I think this is a situation where, let's find a way to get to yes. Sit in a room, figure out how to get to yes. Give people more of their hard-earned money. We know what Democrats want to do. They want to raise taxes. They want to expand government. Republicans need to give money back to the American people, especially the middle class who have not seen their incomes rise, who work so hard. We need a middle-class tax cut in this country, and Republicans have got to come together and get this done. It's critical. It’s something we ran on, and we're going to be held accountable by our voters if we don't deliver on the things that we ran on.
Chairwoman McDaniel: We’re Keeping The Promises That The President Made …I think the President has made it very clear that the focus is relief for the middle class. And as long as we are delivering on tax cuts for the middle class, I think that we're keeping the promises that the president made.
