NRCC Launches New Ads in Arizona’s CD-1 and CD-2

Two new ads just launched in Arizona’s first and second congressional districts. The National Republican Congressional Committee posted these on their independent expenditure YouTube channel. We thought you’d appreciate them.

Also note that Republicans are now messaging a strong national security theme with voters.

First the AZ01 ad:

And the AZ02 ad:

Arizona Association of Realtors Endorse Doug Ducey

The Arizona Association of Realtors is really putting their money where their mouth is when it comes to their endorsement of Doug Ducey for Governor.

Southern Arizona Republicans Make Blacklist

In a very close race between Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Ron Barber every vote counts. During the time Ron Barber has been in congress, his votes have hurt southern Arizonans through more regulation, higher taxes, more spending, higher debt, weakened national security, increase healthcare premiums and deductions, less quality of care and the list goes on.

Sadly, those who would call themselves “Republicans” went public in their support for Ron Barber and his support of the Pelosi, Reid, Obama agenda that is hurting southern Arizonans.

We thought you ought to know who these Republicans are and bring their name out in the public arena.

Our recommendation is that NONE of these pseudo Republicans be invited to Republican events sponsored or hosted by the Pima and Cochise County Republican Parties, the Arizona Republican Party and the Republican National Committee. This means not being invited to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in 2016. Whether or not you choose to support their businesses is your choice but they have decided to work against the mission and goals of the Republican party to restore fiscal sanity to our local, state and national government.

Here is the list of their names. They are on the official blacklist.

Ceci Velasquez Exposed as Not Ready For Elected Office

This from the Aaron Borders campaign. Watch as Ceci Velasquez explains why she is the most unqualified candidate running in LD-29.

The Democrat Party should be ashamed of itself for putting her up as a candidate without any grooming or training. They have embarrassed her and themselves.

Kevin McCarthy: Three House Seats In Play In Arizona

Wednesday, Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was on the Hugh Hewitt Show with Congressman John Campbell. McCarthy and Campbell both gave a few minutes to assessing US House races across the country and began their conversation with our Arizona.

According to Majority Leader McCarthy, Arizona has three congressional races in play and likely pickups.

Top of the list is CD-1 where Andy Tobin is challenging Kirkpatrick; CD-2 where Martha McSally is coming on strong against Ron Barber and finally CD-9 where Wendy Rogers has a good chance of defeating Kyrsten Sinema in the General Election.

What this means is Republican Congressional leadership is engaged in what is happening here in Arizona.  Don’t be surprised if the NRCC throws some resources – money, ads, logistic support, endorsements, etc. – in order to ensure success in winning these three congressional House seats.

Here’s the transcript from Wednesday’s Hugh Hewitt Show:

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy:  Arizona-1, Kirkpatrick seat, this is an R+4, meaning it leans a Republican seat. She has been in one term within here. I think it’s a great opportunity. You’ve got Andy Tobin, they just had their primary, it just got determined. Andy is a conservative over there in the state legislature, actually was the speaker, great individual on all the tough issues. He’s led so many conservative movements there. The second is Arizona-2. This is Barber’s seat, currently R+3. Martha McSally, now Martha came last time less than 1,200 votes from winning the seat. Martha is the first female pilot in combat. She flew the A-10, remarkable woman, served our country so well. She would make such a great member. Those two in Arizona, you’ve got another one in Arizona, I’d say Arizona-9. We’ve got Wendy Rogers is our candidate again against Sinema. She’s a freshmen. This is R+1. All three of those are in play.

To ensure victory this November, let’s make sure we get out and work hard to get these fine candidates elected.

Election Complaint: Scott Smith Failed to Disclose Travel and Event Gifts

Smith ComplaintFriday afternoon, Mesa resident and city hall activist Gene Dufoe filed a complaint with the Arizona Secretary of State arguing that former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith failed to disclose travel and event gifts, a requirement candidates must follow when seeking public office.

The complaint provides a detailed list of travel expense gifts that Smith did not claim on his personal financial disclosure form when he submitted the forms on May 21, 2014.

Exhibits in the complaint detail expense reports filed with the City of Mesa in the year leading up to his announcement for Governor. Those same gifts are also required to be disclosed with the Secretary of State when becoming a candidate.

Smith’s failure to disclose the gifts draws into question whether he may have any conflicts of interest issues related to seeking the office of governor.

Dufoe’s complaint states:

Whether Mr. Smith was justified in accepting these gifts is not the issue here; the only issue is that he failed to report them. Arizona has several important reasons to require candidates to disclose gifts. One reason is so that voters may assess whether a candidate is beholden to special interests. The disclosure may reveal the leanings of the candidate on policy issues. It also reduces the possibility of corruption, or the appearance of corruption. Here, the United States Conference of Mayors is a policy-driven organization, and voters have a right to know that they have flown Mr. Smith all around the globe, put him up in nice hotels, and fed him at nice restaurants.

With Wednesday’s controversy over the use of government resources during a campaign trip to Yuma now drawn into question, this latest complaint may reveal a pattern of shielding important financial information from the general public.

In 2011, several Arizona lawmakers were caught up in a controversy surrounding unreported gifts received to travel and attend sporting events. That investigation led to the conviction of the Fiesta Bowl CEO, John Junker. (Arizona Republic article)

Due to conflict of interest issues, the Secretary of State’s office will forward the complaint to the Attorney General’s Office for an investigation.
