Marcus Kelley Withdraws From LD20 House Race. “Shortly after I declared my candidacy for LD 20 House, Rep. Anthony Kern declared that he was no longer a Senate candidate and was going to run again for the House.  That meant there was only 1 House seat open, not 2.  Shawnna Bolick was also running for the House.  I had no desire to run the risk of beating either of my friends, so, I dropped out of the race a while back, Kelley said.

dave kopp  2AzCDL Update: Strength in Numbers -- In the past few weeks since Governor Ducey announced his “Safer Arizona Schools” plan, you sent over 34,000 emails to the legislature voicing your concerns, and it had a major impact. We had a 3-hour meeting with the Governor’s people discussing our concerns about his initial draft, and they have committed to making significant changes. Your activism helped us get the Governor to the table to talk about these issues, and we can’t stop now! Donate $10 or more so we can continue this important work of maintaining your freedom! As Henry Ford said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” We have seen significant progress in recent weeks, but the harder the left pushes to remove your rights, the louder your voice needs to be. Your activism and your donations continue to make a big difference. - Thank you, Dave Kopp - President, Arizona Citizens Defense League.

Bruce Piepho - 2Activist Bruce Piepho to Jill Skaufel: I live in Sierra Vista, am a Precinct Committeeman and State Committeeman and have followed the over throw of the Navajo County Republican Leadership.  I have read your county by-laws and also participated in the revisions of the AZGOP by-laws.  Included in my research are the applicable state A.R.S. laws.

The election of replacement Navajo County Republican Committee (NCRC) officers was in fact in violation of the county by-laws and the state by-laws - period.  In my opinion, the 75 % plurality of the county PCs' opinions does not change the facts that the meeting called by the person now claiming the position held by Steve Slaton was not legal.  There are problems in the structure of the officers as the county by-laws do not conform to the state by-laws.  For example an elected instead of an appointed secretary is required. If the people had researched the state and county by-laws, they might have found a legal means to call for a special election meeting of Navajo County.  That was not done.  Maybe Slaton does not choose his words wisely, or to some appears to be abusive or maybe just cantankerous - sorry not justification for removal.  They are just opinions. Whatever people have as an opinion of Slaton does not qualify or constitute grounds for replacement.  Jill, you may feel and believe that you have been maligned, insulted and the object of libel.  I cannot and will not judge that.  However, if you are a participant in the illegal over throw and now hold an illegal position in the rogue Navajo county Republican Committee then comments about your involvement may not constitute libel.  You need to prove intent.

The actions by the AZGOP Chairman Lines in accepting the results of the illegal election meeting was in violation of the AZGOP by-laws. PERIOD  The malfeasance of Lines as the AZGOP Treasurer resulting in the $23,000 Federal Election Commission fines constitutes grounds for Lines to be dismissed from holding office.  So tell me - How can anyone in violation of state by-laws and guilty of audit findings approve and accept an election of illegally elected Navajo county?

Jill Skaufel to Bruce Piepho: 1) The committee did follow the bylaws and 2) the court agreed and dismissed Slaton's lawsuit.  judge-dismisses-slaton’s-lawsuit-against-ncrc

Bruce M Piepho to Jill Skaufel: Your opinion is just that and as to the court agreement - It was not made by an elected Judge.  I believe the Judge Pro Tempore David L. Miller came to a uninformed opinon and Slaton can make a good case that he was not a suitable Judge. Nov. 18, 2017, meeting which also saw the rescinding of the NCRC bylaws that were amended during a January 2017 meeting and the election of the new executive board (Vance, Hunt and Baldwin). "The three were removed, according to NCRC documents, because of Slaton’s “inflammatory and injurious bad conduct both at meetings and in written publications statewide,” as well as a feud with Arizona State Sen. Sylvia Allen." Where in the old by-laws, state by-laws or A.R.S. does it state that removal can be based on bad conduct?  Can you produce a petition of PC signatures calling for the removal?  Can you produce a signed by the appointed or elected NCRC secretary of a call for meeting?  Slaton has outlined why your meeting was in conflict with the NCRC by-laws and no one has presented facts as to why the existing by-laws at the time of the alleged recall, removal and election of new officers.

Sorry Jill, your one and two points only serve to strengthen Slaton's case for an appeal.  Did Holland Law Office in Snowflake present any factual discussion of the A.R.S. or state and NCRC by-laws.  Apparently not as the paper article notes; "On Monday, Slaton told The Independent that he is “very disappointed” the court didn’t hear or look at the case, but as with all things in life, “we move on.” Incredible - the court did not hear or look at the case which means the facts and arguments were not the deciding factor(s). I am an advocate that the Swamp in Washington D.C. has drained to the West all the way into Phoenix and as well as Navajo County.

Alan KorwinFirearms Expert Alan Korwin: I write today to alert you to about SB 1519 , being promoted in Arizona by the hard left, that is a horrific infringement and has not been explained by the media. Governor Ducey introduced it way past deadline, eliminating a fair chance to discuss it. Before you take a position, publicly or otherwise, please carefully review the lengthy bill, and if you read it correctly, I believe you will have no choice but to flatly oppose it. The goal of dealing with imminently dangerous people is valid. SB 1519 does not do this in a remotely acceptable manner, and will permanently damage the state of Arizona and the rights of everyone living here. If enacted, it will become inextricable, subject to predictable judicial abuse, and must not be allowed to happen. See bill at SB1519 - protective orders; schools; appropriations

Andy BiggsCongressman Andy Biggs: in response to former FBI Director James Comey's salacious claims about his interactions with President Donald Trump:“Mr. Comey potentially committed a serious crime by leaking government documents - some that may have been classified - to a friend to send to the press. He did so intentionally to manipulate an ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections. By committing this action and compounding it with his profit-seeking book tour, Mr. Comey publicly justified many of the internal reasons why President Trump fired him. Mr. Comey has jeopardized the reputation and hard work of the patriotic agents who worked for him at the FBI. Mr. Comey may have mistrusted President Trump, but he was constitutionally obligated to serve the President that the American people elected. The FBI is not an independent branch of government, and President Trump was fully within his right to terminate his employment. Unfortunately, Mr. Comey's mutiny and potential criminal activity has been applauded by the left and the mainstream media. Justice should be served, and it must start with James Comey's actions.”

Dave Giles CD9CD9 candidate Dave Giles Reflects On The Importance Of Israel's 70th Anniversary: “I am so proud to see how far Israel has come since May 1948. Israel is a true friend to America and I wish her another 70 years of friendship with our country.  Having worked in the Middle East most of my adult life, I am amazed at the strength of the Jewish people.”

Frank RiggsSupt of Public Instruction candidate Frank Riggs: (Editor’s Note: Riggs is responding to reports from attendees that he made side remarks during his competitors presentation at a meeting in Yavapai County) 4-16-18 Briefs: I spoke first and in my allotted five minutes talked about my experience as an education leader at the local, state and federal levels for over 35 years and my plans for reforming and improving AZ K-12 education if I'm entrusted with the position of Supt. of Public Instruction.  Bob Branch Robert Branchfollowed me, and, as he used part of his five minutes to attack me for creating the DACA problem and turning California into a sanctuary state, as incredulous as those claims are.  Several meeting attendees told me he made the same attacks in private conversations before the meeting. Branch knew I wouldn't have the opportunity to rebut his absurd claims, I did say audibly "that's not true" and "that's ridiculous" when he decided to use his time to make unfounded attacks on me.  Based on the feedback I received, he didn't earn any "brownie points" by attacking me. I have a strong, proven record opposing amnesty and fighting to reduce illegal immigration.  I earned an "A" grade from Numbers USA for my congressional voting record to reduce chain migration, amnesty entitlements and illegal immigration rewards: gradescoresheet In 1994, I actively campaigned for the passage of California_Proposition_187, which passed with 59% of the vote but was blocked by the courts: I later introduced congressional legislation patterned after Prop 187: “WASHINGTON — In another attempt to dam the flow of federal benefits to illegal immigrants, a California congressman will move this week to cut off all but emergency medical assistance to undocumented residents with a strategy that mirrors California's Proposition 187. The amendment by Rep. Frank Riggs (R-Windsor) seeks to cut off all federal money to illegal immigrants for Medicare, Social Security, college assistance, community health centers and scores of other federal programs.” _illegal-immigrants I also co-sponsored legislation, HR 1377, to "Amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to (1) declare it to be U.S. policy that illegal aliens not be entitled to public education benefits in the same manner as U.S. citizens and lawful resident aliens; and (2) authorize States to deny public education benefits to illegal aliens" Branch says he's a professional researcher and has thoroughly researched my record.  If that's the case, he's knowingly and intentionally distorting my record.  As the saying goes, he's entitled to his own opinion but not to his own facts.  I'm not going to sit by and let him take low blows that have no basis in truth, especially since he has no legislative or voting record of his own.
