AAARC Endorsements include Janet Contreras in CD 4

I’m not sure I understand the Arizona African-American Republican Committee’s (AAARC’s) reasoning behind all their endorsements. It’s an interesting mix from RINO to conservative depending on the race. They also didn’t make endorsements in every single race. Be that as it may, I am happy that they chose to endorse Janet Contreras over Jose Penalosa in CD 4.

The Fairy Tale is Over, JD is Simply Unelectable

The ability of any American to run for office, and even get elected, can be attested to by looking at the South Carolina Democratic Senatorial Primary.  Alvin Greene, a no name, no money, no experience, no web site, no yard signs, nobody won the primary and will be the Democratic candidate for Senator in November.  Nothing to know, nothing to dislike is one theory of his victory.  Of course, he will face Jim DeMint…so his chances are less than slim but he did win the primary.  

Those kinds of stories are rare and even less likely when the candidate is a previously defeated, scandal plagued, infomercial huckster. Plenty to know, plenty to…well, I think you get my drift.  But, this is America!  Any citizen, meeting the age and other requirements who is not a felon can run for office.   Getting elected…now, that is another story.

Children believe in stories of magic and amazing outcomes, they are called fairy tales.  Throw some magic beans out the window and  POOF!  A goose that lays golden eggs is in your future!  Desire to go to the ball and VOILA!  A fairy godmother appears and little mice sew you a beautiful gown and a pumpkin becomes a carriage!  Make the story full of villains and evil, cast a bad guy and a hero, throw in a sweet damsel to the mix.  Oh, how sweet.  How wonderful.  How not true…or even close.

In the real world, facts cannot be dismissed with soaring rhetoric and highly charged words.  Eventually, the truth will be seen and reality must set in.  Data is what it is, cold and hard but true.  Wishing on a star will not make your poll numbers increase.  And, I’m sorry Virginia but…

Speaking of poll numbers….the results are in and according to the Hayworth campaign, the big poll that really matters…Rasmussen, says JD is toast.  Really dry, burnt toast.

Arizona Senate – Republican Primary

Polling Data

Poll Date Sample McCain (R) Hayworth (R) Spread
RCP Average 6/22 – 7/21 56.7 27.3 McCain +29.4
Rasmussen Reports 7/21 – 7/21 595 LV 54 34 McCain +20
Behavior Research Center 6/30 – 7/11 LV 64 19 McCain +45
Magellan Strategies (R) 6/22 – 6/22 1139 LV 52 29 McCain +23


This poll has been out for a few days now.  And while I was very excited, not surprised but excited, to see it …I didn’t want to rub it in.  Really.  I thought, maybe JD will get it and decide to “spend more time with his family”.  Maybe those around him who value his “style” will realize how damaging this campaign is to his future and maybe theirs, too.   Being a two-time loser hurts badly and basically eliminates any chance of a future race.  LOSER is a title no one wants to be stuck with.  Voter confidence in the candidate’s ability to win is essential…this is not how to get there.  The talk now is not “if” JD will lose but just how badly he will lose.  Falling personal stock is not good for one’s future earning ability.

But, apparently the delusional mindset of Team Hayworth persists.  After the debates, JD’s TV and radio ads, the man-horse marriage thing, the no war declaration on Germany fiasco, the birther episode, his “buyer beware”  video, and after everyone had a really good opportunity to be reminded of why JD achieved the nickname of “Foghorn Leghorn” and got to see his “bully” act live via the debates….we have a measure of the public response.

SO…here it is.  What Rachel Alexander, of Team Hayworth, called a “realistic” poll.  For the third straight time, a poll shows Senator McCain ahead of JD by 20+ points.  With early ballots in mailboxes and election day just a few weeks away, it is time to admit it.  This one will not end “happily ever after” for Team Hayworth, it is time to say…THE END.   

Arizona 1070: Is it all about cheap labor or the social costs of *Illegal* Immigration?

Perhaps to the bankers and global policy makers, the merging of the hemispheric economies is just another step forward in their grand design for a globally managed Uberstate.  Who knows.  My last posting provided some evidence that could be the case, after all, the FTAA and the Summit of the Americas do exist and have a well developed framework.

But is there another agenda at work here?  Is something akin to the relationship between Israel and Palestine over territory evolving here?  The tactics we’re seeing in Arizona now, bear an uncanny resemblance to scenes all too familiar from other regions of the globe in terms of tactics,  rhetoric and reaction.  No, there is no full scale violence [yet], but there is a hot cauldron at a rolling boil in the American Southwest.  The elements look familiar.

To those of you who say, “… its a single issue … what about ___”  I ask you to name one major facet of public policy in Arizona, or one major facet of the state’s budget that doesn’t in some way touch on the subject of the border or illegal immigration.  Then, as I briefly wrote about in my last blog, there is the hemispheric aspect of a European Union model for the Americas.  And tonight, there is the issue of a Hispanic Homeland – Aztlan.

These following quotes and links are from a widely read party organ of the Aztlan movement in Southern California.   Spend some time on their site.  You’ll feel the Marxism and anger, and the distortions of what you may think you know.  You will look through the lens they see Borders and Immigration.  Pay attention.

There was an outrage in Arizona at the death of rancher Rob Krentz.  But look at the quote below, then open another tab via the following link.  You decide.

[the ]“death near Douglas, Arizona of a rancher named Rob Krentz by an unknown assailant or assailants has been blown out of proportion…”

Here is something that is part of the Raza curriculum [you maybe be paying for this in a Charter School near you].  Notice again the disturbingly familiar distortions of history that echo in other strife torn corners of the globe.

Today, no informed Mexican, on either side of the present border, recognizes the legitimacy of this “shotgun treaty” and considers the entire US Southwest (Aztlan) to be stolen land.

The U.S. Department of Education funneled nearly $8 million in taxpayer grants to the group for a nationwide charter schools initiative.

Its called The National Council of The Race.

Do you have such a lobby?  And don’t think for a minute that major politicians from both parties haven’t paid their respects to this group.  Bush addressed them and Obama is courting them … and Juan McCain is fully on-board with their agenda for Amnesty.  Don’t you doubt it for a minute.

My last posting provided the “International Perspective” on the Southwestern Border of the United States.  This brief collage provides perhaps another agenda for La Reconquista de Aztlan.  Watch the video and decide.

But you will ultimately have to decide to look at the evidence [and there's a mountain more], or simply say “… all they want is an opportunity” and vote with your eyes closed.

Dolores Huerta endorses Rodney Glassman

This just in to Sonoran Alliance from camp Glassman:

Dear Friend,

As Arizona’s new immigration law goes into effect and early voting begins, I am reminded of why Arizona needs Rodney Glassman as its next U.S Senator. While I have been a staunch opponent of Arizona’s new law, there is one thing that the Governor of Arizona, the State legislature, and I all agree on: John McCain has failed the people of Arizona and our nation when it comes to passing Federal immigration reform. Rodney Glassman is the new kind of leader Arizona needs to go back to Washington, D.C. and work on behalf of all Arizonans to get things done.

Rodney is not a candidate just for Latinos, the environment, women, working families or the business community. Rodney is the next generation of Arizona leadership because he understands the best way to bring people together is to provide everyone with a seat the table. I am proud that he has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the National Education Association, the AFL-CIO Arizona, and even the Arizona Republic, Arizona’s largest newspaper. Most important, though, I would like him to be supported by you.

Please join me today in supporting Rodney’s campaign. Rodney will move Arizona and our nation forward on a path of progress — click here to donate $50, $100, all the way up to $4,800 so that Arizona will be represented by a senator who puts service of the people over service to self or a narrow special interests.

Se Puede,

Dolores Huerta

Co-Founder of United Farm Workers

P.S. The Rodney Glassman for U.S. Senate campaign is quickly gaining ground. We need your help to build an even more successful campaign.

Sen. McCain: LAFB chosen as preferred site for F-35

Gov. Jan Brewer and Sen. John McCain announce the F-35 to LAFB

On Thursday officials announced the long-awaited and much hoped for decision that Luke Air Force Base was the preferred site for the F-35 Joint Srike Fighter  as a replacement for the F-16 fighter.  Sen. John McCain and Governor Jan Brewer held a press conference today in response to that announcement.  Both the Governor and the Senator have worked to keep Luke open and understand the vital economic role it plays, not only in the west valley but the state as a whole. 

Gov. Brewer and Sen. McCain singled out State Senator John Nelson, LD-12, as being particularly instrumental in keeping Luke open and bringing the F-35 to our state.  West valley mayors Cavanaugh of Goodyear, Schoaf of Litchfield Park, and Scruggs of Glendale along with County Supervisor Max Wilson were in attendance and also were  commended for their efforts. 

The F-35 was met with some resistance due to the noise issues it may bring in comparison to older models of the F-16.   However, in answer to a reporter’s question to that effect, Sen. McCain made the point that the F-35 is not any louder than the newer, upgraded engines of the currently flown F-16.

The economic impact of Luke is over $2.7 billion annually and 8,000 jobs statewide as a direct result of the operations at LAFB. The new F-35 is expected to bring in another $2 million-plus dollars in jobs for construction and development. 

An environmental impact study will be completed with final award to be announced in 2011.

JD Hayworth Releases New Ad: John McCain made illegal immigration problem worse

Here is J.D. Hayworth’s latest advertisement in his run for the U.S. Senate. The ad highlights the record of his opponent, John McCain, who has failed to secure the border and to add insult to injury, has voted to make taxpayers pay for benefits to illegal aliens.

McCain/Kyl Border Security Plan OR How to Secure Our Borders and NOT add to the deficit!

Arizona’s two Senators took the fight for our nation’s security and sovereignty to the floor of the Senate Thursday, and did it with true conservative values.  While the House passed a very similar plan, it was paid for by $200 million in cuts and added further debt of over $500 million.  Senators McCain & Kyl, however, have a plan that insures no new deficit funding by using remaining stimulus funds and an additional $100 million frozen by Sec. Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano.  The McCain/Kyl plan is designed to provide increased funding to the tune of $701 million for manpower, technology, and other resources to the border.


The legislation we introduced today will provide additional resources to help gain control of our border, without impacting our nation’s deficit,” McCain and Kyl said in a joint statement Thursday. “It is our hope that Democratic majority will swiftly work with us to ensure passage of this bill.”


The Dems attempted to load up the Afghanistan War funding bill with border security funding, all tied to increasing the deficit, and leaving hundreds of millions of unencumbered stimulus dollars available.  Republicans, led by McCain and Kyl, stripped that bill of the border funding and the McCain/Kyl bill was quickly introduced as the alternative.   

Among the items funded will be:

  • 1200 Border Patrol Agents
  • 500 additional Customs and Border Protection officers at ports of entry
  • 3 new Border Enforcement Bases
  • 2 Unmanned Aircraft
  • The FBI & DEA will have additional investigation and surveillance of drug and human traffickers.

Janet, Joe & JD – Next Wednesday!

Make sure you RSVP for this event. With Sheriff Joe and JD Hayworth in the house, you know it’s gonna be a great event!

The Real Reasons Behind Washington’s Attack on Arizona’s 1070

The border remains a military zone. We remain a hunted people. Now you think you have a destiny to fulfill in the land that historically has been ours for forty thousand years. And we’re a new Mestizo nation. And they want us to discuss civil rights. Civil rights. What law made by white men to oppress all of us of color, female and male. This is our homeland. We cannot – we will not- and we must not be made illegal in our own homeland. We are not immigrants that came from another country to another country. We are migrants, free to travel the length and breadth of the Americas because we belong here. We are millions. We just have to survive. We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It’s a matter of time. The explosion is in our population. 

Professor Angel Gutierrez, University of Texas at Arlington, founder of La Raza Unida Party; 1995

Here are a couple of little known quotes on immigration from another point of view.

“In recent years a new International System has been developing, oriented toward the establishment of norms and principles of universal jurisdiction, above national sovereignty, in the areas of what is called the New Agenda…we have to confront ….. what I dare to call the Anglo-Saxon prejudice against the establishment of supra-national organizations.”   — Mexican President Vicente Fox Club XXI, Hotel Eurobuilding, Madrid, Spain 5/16/02

“I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important – a very important – part of this.” – Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo, Chicago on July 23, 1997

“The effort to unite the economies of the Americas into a single free-trade area began at the Summit of the Americas which was held in December 1994 in Miami. The heads of state and government of the 34 democracies in the region agreed to construct the Free Trade Areas of the Americas (FTAA) in which barriers to trade and investment will be progressively eliminated. They agreed to complete negotiations towards this agreement by the year 2005 and to achieve substantial progress toward building the FTAA by 2000.” So begins the history of what President George W. Bush called “The Century of the Americas” (Summit of the Americas, 1994).

Lets now consider some of the following goals and objectives of the FTAA as taken from their website:

Share best practices and technologies with respect to increasing citizen participation in the electoral process, including voter education, the modernization and simplification of voter registration…” [remember motor-voter and the ubiquitous early vote by mail]

Support initiatives designed to strengthen linkages among migrant communities abroad and their places of origin and promote cooperative mechanisms that simplify and speed up the transfer of migrant remittances to their country of origin.  [do you get the idea that because Mexico is bankrupt and ungovernable, remittances from the U.S. are about all that's keeping that country stable?]

Support programs of cooperation in immigration procedures for cross-border labor markets and the migration of workers, both in countries of origin and destination, as a means to enhance economic growth in full cognizance of the role that cooperation in education and training can play in mitigating any adverse consequences of the movement of human capital from smaller and less developed states into … [I think you get the idea where that one goes]

Strive to ensure that migrants have access to basic social services, consistent with each country’s internal legal framework… [now you know why AHCCCS is subsidized by the Federal government to some extent]

In Mexico’s official “National Plan of Development 2001-2006″ specific strategies for expanding the nation’s political reach far beyond the U.S. / Mexico border are outlined.  Through out the lengthy document, globalization is frequently referenced, however again, the devil’s in the details.  To achieve their national plan, the government of Mexico reliles on those of its peoples migrating into the United States who, in 2002 sent back to Mexico over $14 billion dollars of hard U.S. currency.  These remittances as of 2006/07 were Mexico’s #1 source of foreign capital, replacing tourism and oil.  This of course isn’t counting drug money pouring into that country.
In 2001 the Mexican National Congress established dual citizenship for all Mexican national living abroad, legal or otherwise.   In the words of Mexican Congressman Manuel de la Cruz, an American citizen elected to the Mexican National Congress in 2002 and residing in California, “There are 23 million Mexicans in the U.S. that need a voice in Mexico.” (Washington Times, Ken Bensinger)

In a 2000 FoxNews interview, Mexican President Vicente Fox made Mexico’s intentions crystal clear:

“I’m talking about a community of North America, an integrated agreement of Canada, the United States, and Mexico in the long term, 20, 30, 40 years from now. And this means that some of the steps we can take are, for instance, to agree that in five years we will make this convergence on economic variables. That may mean in 10 years we can open up that border when we have reduced the gap in salaries and income.”

Now does it all make more sense?  Now do you have an idea why the Obama Administration is suing the State of Arizona?  Now do you know why our Southern Border is open and our Federal government has no intention of doing anything unless they achieve an Amnesty Program?

And why John McCain is needed back in the U.S. Senate?  Is it beginning to make some sense?  Its not about race and its not about human rights – its about globalism and the Free Trade Area of the Americas.

Jim Ward expected to apologize for lying to the voters of CD5 about Fox News

The kind of politician you can’t trust

Yesterday morning Jim Ward, the candidate for Congress who moved here from San Francisco last year to run for office, took the Fox News logo off his website, essentially admitting that he lied to the voters in person, in mail pieces – telling them that he had been profiled as an up-and-comer.

As Jim Ward’s campaign deflates amid lies, runaway spending, and ideological gaffs, he has shown that he is ill prepared to run for Congress if the dethroned marketing executive can’t even market his own platform for Congress.

Which, by the way, what does Jim Ward stand for outside of not being David Schweikert?  Not real border security.  Not free trade.  Not protecting taxpayers or demonstrating a fiscal conservative record.  He’s a cocktail show-hound who thought he could buy a Congressional seat by shaking hands, buying young people rounds of drinks — fooling the voters through false advertising.

Jim: We’re not buying it.  Your product is dishonest.  And we can’t trust you.

Chamber Trying to Pass Off Open Borders Crowd as Border Hawks

A Chamber of Commerce mailer for Rep. Adam Driggs has recently hit mailboxes in LD 11. The mailer tries to paint Driggs as some kind of immigration hawk. Anyone who pays attention to Arizona politics knows full well that Driggs is part of the “Sanctuary Six” (Driggs, Crandall, Mason, Barto, Quelland, Konopnicki) that walked out on a vote on HB 2280, an anti-sanctuary cities bill and the precursor to SB 1070, rather than vote on the bill. Earlier in the session, Driggs had held up anti-sanctuary legislation for the entire session by using his power as Committee Chairman to not give it a hearing. Then, when Sen. Russell Pearce got the bill around Driggs to the House floor, Driggs walked out as one of the Sanctuary Six.

A look at Driggs’ contributors shows a host of open borders McCainiacs. Most notably among these are Deb Gullet, former notoriously liberal legislator and former McCain Chief of Staff. She was the Gallagher & Kennedy lobbyist that sent an e-mail around touting Greater Phoenix Leadership’s (GPL’s) “Twelve in `10” fundraiser for liberal Republicans to help Democrats raise money and get elected. Reps. Driggs’ and Konopnicki’s names again pop up on the list of pro-corporate handout legislators favored by GPL. Sean Noble is yet another McCainiac and open-borders guy. He too has given to Driggs. Marcus Dell’Artino who works for First Strategic, the same firm employing Wes Gullet, a former McCain staffer and Deb Gullet’s husband, has also contributed to Driggs. Many First Strategic employees have been donating to ultra-liberal 20+ year incumbent Democrat Congressman Ed Pastor. Pastor is about as open-borders as anyone can get. Koponicki has contributed to Driggs. Wonder why? Couldn’t be because he wants like-minded liberals in office to help him push his pro-open borders agenda through the legislature. Shiree Verdone, another McCain staffer also contributed to Driggs. Would the McCainiacs be supporting Driggs if he wasn’t one of them? Almost to a man, the Sanctuary Six endorsed McCain, Quelland being the only name absent from the list. Almost to a man, the Chamber endorsed the Sanctuary Six, again, Quelland being the exception. The ties between McCainiacs, the open-borders crowd and the pro-“business” handouts crowd are unmistakable.

The first lesson should be that anyone receiving a mailer from the Chamber needs to be very skeptical. The voters need to dig deeper to learn the truth. The second lesson is that the Chamber knows very well that its open-borders position is not what the voters want. The Chamber routinely opposes efforts to crack down on illegal immigration and it wants to elect open-borders legislators like Adam Driggs to prevent Russell Pearce from becoming Senate President. That it tries to get them elected by posing them as “tough-on-crime, secure border leaders” is both hypocritical and dishonest.

Roundtable Politics interview with Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Archived Roundtable Politics interview with Joe Arpaio hosted by Rachel Alexander, James Allen, Nancy Huzar, and myself. The Sheriff should do more interviews like this, his humorous side really shines through and he even talks about his love of animals. The Sheriff, however, doesn’t want to be classified as a softie at heart because he wants crime rates to stay low! Laughs were had by all when he asks what “social media” is and he talks about not having a computer, but a Smith-Corona typewriter instead. Gee, I wonder who runs his Facebook page and his Twitter account if he doesn’t know what social media is? Sound quality is not the best because of a last minute change in equipment and the wrong computer settings. Still a great interview.

Special thanks to the Sheriff for doing the show in the first place! We understand that he normally only does national media and he made a special exception in our case. I hope to have the Sheriff on Grassroots Interviews after the general election.

AZ Latino Republicans holding press conference today at 2pm on SB1070

The Arizona Latino Republican Association, which has joined the SB1070 suit on the side of Arizona, will be holding a press conference today at 2pm to comment on Judge Bolton’s ruling against Arizona. Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (P.L.E.A.) Headquarters - 1102 West Adams Street, Phoenix, AZ 85007.

Below is a statement from their attorney, Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch.



Outrageous Decision of Judge Bolten Gutting the Law Not Surprising Given Her

Appointment by a Democratic Administration

The People Come Second to the Judge’s Career Prospects

(Phoenix, Arizona, July 29, 2010). Today, federal judge Susan R. Bolten issued a preliminary injunction in effect gutting Arizona’s new law designed to stop or at least curtain the massive flow of illegal immigrants into the state, and its attendant costs and risks to the citizens.

Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch issued this statement:

“After many years of legal practice, I had no difficulty predicting the result. Judge Bolten, who was appointed to the court during the Clinton administration, knows that if she is ever to be nominated to a higher post – perhaps at the Ninth Circuit – that she better not rule against her benefactor, the Democratic establishment now lead by President Barack Obama.

Regrettably in her zeal to cover her own political flanks, the people of Arizona and the nation have been treated as unimportant. This is just another example of the judiciary feathering its own nest, at the expense of the people.

Judge Bolten’s decision ruling unconstitutional the questioning under AZ SB 1070 of persons who are stopped for ‘probable cause’ – to determine if they are in Arizona legally – is not only outrageous,  it also conflicts with established law that police officers can probe into such matters once “probable cause exists.” Now, it is even unclear, given the judge’s politically motivated ruling, that they can even follow the law that existed before AZ SB 1070. Judge Bolten in her zeal to bow down to and further the pre-election strategy of President Obama and the Democrat establishment, has subverted legitimate law enforcement and endangered the citizens of Arizona.

Freedom Watch, which represents the Arizona Latino Republican Association and its CEO, Jesse Fernandez, both of whom support AZ SB 1070, will take this matter to the U.S. Supreme Court for redress. My clients intervened in this case to tell the American people that Latinos also respect the law and are proud to be part of this country, and want to play a major role in solving the illegal immigration problem. The rich Latin culture has added greatly to our nation and its values.

This country is on the verge of revolution, as we were in 1776, because the sovereign and its court system refuse to address the people’s grievances. I hope to avert this by using peaceful means to ‘overthrow’ the establishment, which is destroying our nation.”

An Open Letter from Senator Russell Pearce to Arizona Conservatives

Dear Friend,

Arizona’s schools need improvement.  We’ve increased per student spending by nearly 30% in recent years.  The result?  According to The Arizona Republic, “The Class of 2009 posted average SAT scores that are among the lowest in at least a decade.” (8/26/2009) Other measures show academic achievement in Arizona schools either flat or on the decline.

Clearly, taxpayers are not getting the value they deserve for their hard earned tax dollars, and many students aren’t getting the education they’ll need to succeed in the workplaces of tomorrow.

I believe State Senator John Huppenthal is the leader we need to bring about improvement in Arizona’s schools, and I’m urging Arizona conservatives to support his candidacy for Superintendent of Public Instruction.

I know John well.  We’ve served side by side in the Arizona legislature for many years, fighting on behalf of taxpayers and the law-abiding citizens of this state.

Improving Arizona schools is John’s life’s work.  He is a respected expert on the topic, having served 17 consecutive years on the State House and State Senate education committees.  Some of John’s legislative accomplishments to improve the quality of education include:

  • Lifting the caps on charter school enrollment, dramatically increasing school choice
  • Passage of Arizona’s Tuition Tax Credit Law, enabling thousands of students attend the school of their choice
  • Supporting English language immersion for students who can’t speak English
  • Passing legislation to stop non-resident illegal aliens from attending Arizona schools, a major problem at schools along the Mexico border and a drain on taxpayer funds
  • Providing the very best computer technology for our students in our schools for the deaf and blind
  • Establishing a model summer school for children with autism; bringing the best research to Arizona for educating these special children
  • Developing best practices in the discipline of special needs students
  • Improving assessment data and the measurement of academic gains of students and districts
  • Increasing vocational education opportunities for students
  • Developing and passing the “best home school laws in the nation,” according to Tom Lewis, President of Arizona Families for Home Education

I believe that with John Huppenthal’s leadership as Arizona’s next Superintendent of Public Instruction, Arizona schools will be well positioned for steady improvements in academic achievement.

John is strongly opposed to bi-lingual education and supports English immersion for students who can’t speak English.  He is committed to ending “social promotion” and will demand accountability and higher standards.

In addition to his conservative track record on education issues, John has proven himself to be a leader Arizonans can trust on other issues as well.

John has worked hard to stop illegal immigration, protect life and marriage, secure our Second Amendment rights and fight wasteful spending.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Len Munsil, Congressman Trent Franks and other conservative leaders across Arizona have endorsed John and are helping the campaign.

Now, John needs conservatives like YOU to help spread the word.

Please take the time to tell your friends and neighbors about John Huppenthal’s campaign for Superintendent of Public Instruction.

I’ve been in some tough campaigns myself, facing off against some of the same liberal groups that are sure to come after John.  I know from experience that word of mouth advertising is more powerful than television or piece of mail.

As conservatives, we fight to  preserve Faith, Family, Freedom and Country.  I’m grateful you’ve taken the time to read this letter.  Thank you, and may God bless you and may God continue to bless this great Republic.
