FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 27, 2010
Joe Jaraczewski, father of 5, small businessman from Cottonwood, announces his intention to run in the Republican Primary for Arizona Congressional District #1. Asks Phoenix Lobbyist Rusty Bowers to leave race for good of party. Dr. Gosar, Attorney Beauchamp lack the political courage to lead.
My fellow citizens of Arizona’s 1st Congressional District, my name is Joe Jaraczewski, father of 5, small businessman, proud to call Cottonwood, AZ home. What we know as uniquely American is being fundamentally transformed by elite politicians under the direction of lobbyists from big business. Before we return our government to the people, we must return our party to the people. That is why I am forming a homegrown campaign to restore the First District of Arizona to the people. You can rest assured that I will stand up for you in Washington.
Our first order of business will be to ask the mining industry to remove their candidate, Rusty Bowers, from the race. I respect Mr. Bowers as a family man, but in 2001 he crossed the line and became a lobbyist. The silent majority is tired of the lines being blurred. Hard working, red-blooded Americans want their interests represented, not the interests of big business. The Republican Party needs to restore itself as the party of the people. We cannot do that by putting another lobbyist from Phoenix on the ballot this November, just as we had done in the past. We need to gain the trust of the general electorate. In order to do so, another “carpet bagger” cannot be placed on the ballot.
So Rusty, for the good of our district and party, go home to the real Rusty Country. Continue your lucrative lobbying career in Phoenix. We cannot sacrifice the energy and resources of our district for your career.
Dr. Gosar and Attorney Beauchamp, I have watched you stand idle, unable to stand up to Rusty and the special interests. If you cannot stand up to a member of your own party, how can we expect you to stand up to the lobbyists and big government officials in Washington? Please step aside; the people want a politician with conviction, a fighter. You both have demonstrated anything but. As a political party, we must engage in the culture. As we saw in the 2008 presidential elections, culture affects politics. We are losing our youth to the mind-numbing morals and economic idiocy of the elites in Washington. We must seek out our youth and articulate that peace, truth, and justice is the conservative movement. So, to take a line from the skatepark, “Dr. Gosar, Attorney Beauchamp, you are posers. Please move aside.”
The people of the 1st District want a leader that is capable of building the trust to form a coalition that includes not only the LDS and the Tea Partiers, but the Ron Paul Libertarians, Hispanic Republicans, Reagan Democrats, as well as the rank and file Republicans. Also, let us reach out to people who never thought of joining our party. Let’s give them a political home. We can be that coalition. Remember, 1+God is an army.

We can restore that shining city on the hill. The time to march is now.
