The residents of District 10 and Pima County have responded to the deluge of outside money pouring into LD 10 from Maricopa County and Washington D.C. They did so by opening up their wallets to contribute $50,000 from more than 1000 individual contributions just in the past few months. While pundits in the media and the political chattering class spin the narrative of defeat for their illustrious and popular State Senator, hundreds of supporters have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to get Antenori re-elected.
Retirees, folks on fixed incomes and hard working families are backing Antenori in an effort to help keep their property and sales taxes lower. Parents of school age children have stepped up to make calls, walk neighborhoods and raise money for Antenori in an effort to protect school choice and keep the labor unions from causing more damage to Arizona’s education system. Finally, women have really stepped up for Antenori because he’s fighting to protect their relationship with their family’s doctor and to keep government bureaucrats and IRS agents out of their healthcare decision.
Small business have also stepped up, opening their checkbooks and contributing to re-elect Antenori. Weary of the constant drumbeat of labor unions, supporting Antenori’s opponent, that paints hard working small businessmen and women as greedy and selfish for wanting to keep some of their hard earned money.
Outside special interest groups have spend nearly $250,000 to defeat Antenori, they are literally trying to buy a State Senate seat for Antenori’s opponent, David Bradley. Folks realize that if Bradley wins, he’s going to be obligated to those that spent thousands of dollars to get him elected and not the people he claims he would represent. Even after spending all of that money to oppose Antenori, recent polls show the race close, leaving special interest groups dumbfounded; a testament to those working hard for Antenori.
Missing from the deluge of mailers, internet ads, and radio commercials attacking Frank Antenori are references to the achievements or accomplishments of David Bradley. Interestingly, the former legislator who served for eight years in the State House of Representatives cannot find one piece of legislation or a single accomplishment to tout or a single policy he supported; not even one campaign promise that he actually has delivered on. Eight years and nothing to show for it?
On the other hand, Antenori has released TV commercials, flyers, and radio commercials focusing entirely on results; promises made and delivered for his constituents.
