Editors note: It’s time to lighten it up a little bit here on Sonoran Alliance. Here’s a variation on a theme on our Pol-parazzi post. Have fun voting for your fave!
OK Republican ladies, we’d like you to vote for your favorite, conservative, Republican, elected, eligible, bachelor!
According to political pundits, these GOP gentleman are considered rising stars in their arena chomping on the bit of their next political career move. Who knows, they may even be one of our own future congressman or senator from Arizona.
Let’s quickly profile these chivalrous conservatives and no, this is not conservativematchmaker.com
Hailing from Legislative District 30 in Tucson, Representative and 1st Lieutenant, Jonathan Paton, is currently serving in his second term in the Arizona House of Representatives. Last summer, he donned his BDU’s and volunteered to serve a six month intelligence and reconstruction support mission in Iraq. He returned in February, just in time to join his fellow Republicans in pushing through critical legislation. Jonathan brings a strong international background to any conversation including a proficiency in Russian and German. According to his legislative bio, Jonathan’s “hobbies include reading, brewing beer (we are not sure if anyone has ever survived a taste-testing or not), working-out and writing.” Look for Jonathan’s State Senate campaign website to launch soon.
Straight from the westside (Legislative District 9), Representative Bob Stump is currently in his third term in the State House. Deemed by his colleagues as “one of Arizona’s most articulate and eloquent champions of conservative ideals,” Bob has obtained celebrity conservative status among such national networks as CNN, Fox News, C-SPAN and PBS. Bob has also distinguished himself as a legislative expert on bioethical issues such as cloning (if only we could clone more Bobs!) Representative Stump is also a graduate of Harvard University where he was in the brain trust of such scholars as George Will. He also ventured into the waters of Berkely where he studied philosophy and social thought and graduated with honors. According to his legislative website, Bob, “enjoys hiking, skiing and exploring our great state of Arizona.”
North Phoenicians (Legislative District 7) can count on Senator Jim Waring as their conservative voice. Perhaps one of Arizona’s wittiest elected officials, Jim’s colleagues can always count on the good-humored Senator to deliver the right line at the right moment. Currently serving his second term in the State Senate, Jim is the likely successor to Congressman John Shadegg in Congressional District 3. Originally from the Land of Lincoln, Jim graduated from the University of Illinois before obtaining a Masters in Political Science, and a Masters and Ph.D. in Public Administration from Arizona State University. “Dr. Jim” is a popular toastmaster among GOP socialites, hosting occassional happy hour discussions at such fine establishments as Nixon’s at the Esplanade.
Now that we’ve profiled this cadre of conservatives, we’d like to have your votes. GOP gals, please take a moment and tell us what you adore in these patriotic pols and what you think their political careers hold.
