Robert Graham Endorsed by Elected GOP Leaders Throughout Arizona


PHOENIX – Robert Graham today received endorsements from three important party leaders, spanning the state and including both rural and Valley GOP organizations. Party leaders elected by Apache County and Yuma County Republicans joined with the Legislative District 22 (Sun City West/Peoria) leader in Maricopa County to endorse Robert Graham for a second term as Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. Graham is up for reelection at the biennial meeting of the State Committee on January 24, 2015 at the Grace Community Church in Tempe.

Delos Bond, Chairman of the Apache County Republican Committee in northeast Arizona, wrote to Graham, “I want to congratulate you on a very successful campaign season for the Arizona Republican Party and Republican candidates this past mid-term election. Your special leadership and campaign plan, along with your fundraising effort has laid the foundation for Republican success across the State of Arizona. As you are moving forward with your campaign for another term as Party Chairman, I want you to know, you have my personal endorsement and I will continue to support you as Chairman for the Arizona Republican Party for the great State of Arizona.”

Jonathan Lines, Chairman of the Yuma County Republican Central Committee in southwest Arizona, also endorsed Graham.
These two county party chairmen were joined by Eric Morgan, Chairman of Legislative District 22 in Maricopa County. Morgan said, “I am pleased to support Robert Graham for State Chairman of the Republican Party of Arizona. Not only do I know Robert to be a champion for conservative, constitutionally sound Republican principles but I have also found him to a master at positioning our state party exactly where it needs to be. For local committees to make serious headway advancing Republican principles, our party needs infrastructure, knowledge, tools and money. Robert Graham understands this and in two short years has made monumental strides in making readily available the resources local committees need to not only win elections, but promote Republican values among the voters and expand the party in the years beyond a very successful 2014. He has led the forging of new and repairing of old alliances with vastly varying communities of interest across the state, giving us, the volunteers of the party, the opportunities to engage in discussion and advance our message. At the same time, he earned the respect of many important organizations nationwide, positioning Arizona as a model for the nation. He’s done this while respecting the autonomy and direction of the individual districts, counties, and their Republican volunteers. Thanks to Robert and his team, we now have an ever expanding set of resources to allow each of us to continue pushing the needle to the right. I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together over the next two years leading to November 2016.

Pinal County Republican Chairman Endorses Robert Graham for AZGOP Chairman

PHOENIX – Robert Graham, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, today received an endorsement from Pinal County GOP Chairman Seraphim Larsen, who credited Graham for helping the county party win every contested race in the county. Graham is up for reelection to be decided at the meeting of the State Committee on January 24, 2015 at the Grace Community Church in Tempe.

Larsen wrote“It has been such a pleasure working with Robert Graham on our Republican Get Out The Vote effort this election season. We have never had such an easy time coordinating with the state party.“Chairman Graham set up regional AZGOP Victory Offices all over the state. The staff at the offices in our area bent over backwards to help our county PC efforts in whatever way possible — providing meeting space on short notice, delivering GOTV materials all across the county, and just being available to help.

“Chairman Graham did a fantastic job raising money for the Republican Party, and gladly shared those funds with local party organizations. Our Pinal County PCs are well organized for boots-on-the-ground GOTV work, and with slate cards customized for each local area, designed and delivered by us but paid for by AZGOP, we reached twice as many voters as we have ever done in the past.

“All these efforts produced fantastic results in Pinal County, winning every contested race in the county. I would love to see this fruitful collaboration continue, and I heartily endorse Robert Graham for re-election as AZGOP Chairman.”

LD-13 Legislators Endorse Aaron Borders for Maricopa GOP 2nd Vice Chair

(Phoenix) – Today, Aaron Borders announced the endorsements of Arizona House Majority Leader-elect Steve Montenegro, Representative Darin Mitchell and Senator Don Shooter. Montenegro, Mitchell and Shooter represent Legislative District 13 in the west valley

Montenegro said: “It is with great confidence that I endorse Aaron Borders for Second Vice Chair of the Maricopa County Republican Committee. Aaron is a committed conservative, who works extremely hard to advance the principles we so strongly believe. Aaron will work well with the MCRC, the legislative districts in Maricopa County, and with the Arizona Republican Party to ensure future Republican victories in 2016 and beyond. Please join me in supporting Aaron Borders for Second Vice Chair of the MCRC.”

Mitchell said: “I can think of no other person more qualified for the job of Second Vice Chair of the MCRC than Aaron Borders. When he ran for the state house in a Democratic stronghold this past cycle, Aaron proved to Republicans in Maricopa County that he would out-work anyone around him and that he would not compromise the platform of the Republican Party in order to gain a few extra votes. Being the 2nd Vice Chair of the MCRC is a thankless job and requires an individual who is committed to putting his head down and accomplishing the tasks ahead of him. Aaron Borders will do the work that is necessary for Republican victories in Maricopa County, and I hope that precinct committeemen will join me in supporting him for 2nd vice chair.”

Shooter said: “Aaron Borders is a young, up-and-coming talent in the Arizona Republican Party, and a true conservative at that. Most people would be burned out after losing a close race, but not Aaron; he is ready again to answer the call to serve his party. We need Aaron Borders as the MCRC’s next 2nd Vice Chair”

“I am so encouraged by the trust that these three worthy leaders of Arizona have placed in me,” stated Borders. “LD 13 is so fortunate to have some of the premier conservatives in Arizona, and their leadership going forward will do great things for future generations. I look forward to working with these men – and LD 13 – should I be privileged to serve as the 2nd Vice Chair of the MCRC.”
