Commissioner Tom Forese Endorses Robert Graham for Chairman of Arizona Republican Party

PHOENIX – Arizona Corporation Commissioner Tom Forese today endorsed Robert Graham for a second term as Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. Forese was recently elected to statewide office after serving four years in the state legislature. Graham is up for reelection at the biennial meeting of the State Committee on January 24, 2015 at the Grace Community Church in Tempe.

Forese said, “I am proud to support Robert Graham for a second term as state party chairman. As Doug Little and I won the primary and entered an incredibly hostile race against the Democrats, Robert was there every step of the way putting time, strategy and resources behind us. Under Robert’s leadership, the Republicans in Arizona won every statewide office. Looking to the 2016 elections we must hold a U.S. Senate seat and elect a Republican president of the United States. Robert is the man for the job! I look forward to working with him to keep Arizona red.”

Responding to the endorsement Graham said, “I’m incredibly grateful for Tom Forese’s support. Tom showed real grit on our tours around the state, working tirelessly to meet voters. He showed real caring and concern for all the voters he met and his message of growing our economy, and of his ancestor’s coming to this country in search of the American dream resonated with all audiences. Tom helped our entire ticket by his work ethic and the respect he displayed to grassroots activists, donors, and every voter he encountered across Arizona. I’m grateful to have the support of leaders like Tom.”

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Endorses Aaron Borders for Maricopa GOP 2nd Vice Chair

Aaron Borders

(Phoenix) – Today, Aaron Borders announced the coveted endorsement of Sheriff Joe Arpaio in his run for 2nd Vice Chair of the Maricopa County Republican Committee. Sheriff Arpaio, known nationally for his stubborn commitment to enforce immigration laws against growing odds, is a highly respected voice amongst conservatives in the Republican Party.

Sheriff Arpaio said, “Aaron Borders will be a welcome addition to the MCRC leadership team, and I highly endorse him for the position of 2nd Vice Chair. His work ethic and conservative principles are needed in our Party in order to win elections in the 2016 cycle. I look forward to seeing what Aaron can bring to the MCRC in the months ahead, and I hope that you will join me in supporting Aaron Borders for 2nd Vice Chair of the Maricopa County Republican Committee.”

“I am so humbled and encouraged by Sheriff Arpaio’s endorsement,” Borders stated. “His conservative leadership in the face of Obama’s lawless administration is admirable and the main reason I pushed to earn his endorsement. The road to Party leadership in Arizona usually goes through the toughest Sheriff in America, and I am blessed to have his support as I move forward to the MCRC elections.”

Aaron Borders is married to Shelly Borders, a fourth-generation Arizonan. They have four young children. Aaron is a business owner, a board member of the West Valley Youth Sports Commission, and a licensed financial specialist. In his limited free time, Aaron enjoys serving at his church, spending time with his family and coaching his sons in football. In addition to Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Aaron has been endorsed by Arizona House Majority Leader-elect Steve Montenegro, Arizona House Majority Whip-elect David Livingston, Representative Darin Mitchell, Senator Don Shooter, Maricopa Community College At-Large-elect Tracy Livingston, former LD 16 Chairman Constantin Querard and many other active Maricopa County Precinct Committeemen.

Superintendent-Elect Diane Douglas Endorses Robert Graham for Second Term as AZGOP Chairman

PHOENIX – Today Robert Graham, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party first elected in January of 2013, received the endorsement of Diane Douglas, who was recently elected Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction. 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.

Superintendent-Elect Douglas, who will take the oath of office and begin a four year term in January, said,“I’m happy to support Robert Graham’s reelection as chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. Robert led the Republican team on a successful Victory Tour just days after the primary election. I know that he cared about my campaign and worked tirelessly for the election of our entire state team. Robert is committed to defending conservative principles. Robert stood up for Arizona parents by joining the unanimous vote at the Republican National Committee to oppose the federal intrusion into our state education system and our local schools through Common Core and other federal controls. I appreciate his commitment to our shared values supporting options and choices for parents for their children’s education. Join me in voting to re-elect Robert Graham as our Arizona Republican Party Chairman.”

Graham thanked Douglas saying, “With 1.5 million voters casting a vote for Superintendent of Public Instruction, every vote mattered in a contest decided by a 1 percent margin. Diane worked with our Victory team to travel the state, work with the slate of candidates, and to hold to her solid values and opposition to Common Core. We are lucky to have her as our Superintendent.”

“Recall Douglas” Leader Exposed As Bad Leader…. And Poor Speller

Espy(screenshot: DianeDouglas.com)

  • Anthony Espinoza is the founder and leader of the RECALL DOUGLAS campaign
  • Misspelled his name on Recall Douglas PAC’s forms
  • Teaches at MC Cash Elementary School as their ‘Technology Teacher’
  • Is a Democrat Party Precinct Committeeman and Liberal Activist
  • Graduated from ‘Arizona Stare University’ (see screenshot above)
  • Allegedly fired from the Murphy School District for ‘abandoning teaching post’

Unlike Arizona Republic’s EJ Montoni, Arizona Liberal Watch has “done their homework” on the man behind the ‘RECALL DOUGLAS’ campaign.

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.”

UNCIVIL WAR! McCain Purging Conservatives From AZGOP

John_McCain

ArizonaInformer has learned from published reports and interviews with several precinct committeemen that TeamMcCain is attempting to remake the AZGOP in his image prior to his reelection bid for Senate.

In recent months precinct committeemen around the state have been solicited by a group called ‘Arizona Grassroots Action PAC’ which is, oddly enough, based in the Beltway according to OpenSecrets.  Conservative PCs allege this is being done to support McCain-approved candidates for precinct committeemen in order for these PCs to support Liberal Republicans for Legislative District leadership positions and subsequently, State Committeemen who can vote for AZGOP leadership.

This hijacking of the AZGOP comes as no surprise for many Conservative activists as Jon Kyl tipped his hand in this Hill.com article where Kyl was asked to respond to the AZGOP censuring McCain.  Kyl’s response indicates this campaign was well thought out in advance.

 “I think you’ll see a different party make-up after the primary election. There will be a new group of precinct committeemen. I don’t think you’ll see many of the same old faces” ~ Jon Kyl

In the next several weeks, Legislative Districts will be holding their mandatory organizational meetings which will decide the direction of the local party organizations and the state party for the next 2 years.  If you are a ‘Tea Party Republican’, or a ‘Reagan Conservative’, it may be best to get involved in the local level political structure to ensure the Arizona Republican Party remains, well, Republican.

ArizonaInformer will monitor this story and update as the situation warrants.

Who’s the real dunce

In clear violation of the “let’s all be civil” mantra from the left, EJ Montini refers to a recently elected statewide official as a “dunce”. Greg at Espresso Pundit does a great job exposing Montini as the one who is not qualified.

Arizona Democratic Party Dirty Halloween Trick Could Backfire on Kyrsten Sinema

Arizona Democratic Party Dirty Trick Could Backfire On Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in 2014 After Libertarian Voters Wanted Her Recalled In 2013

IMG_8405 

Recently, the Arizona Democratic Party (ADP) launched a dirty trick in time for Halloween that comes with no treat for Libertarian voters.  The ADP strategy could have worked a couple of cycles ago, but maybe not this time – particularly when Libertarian Mike Shipley filed recall papers against her last year.  Though the Secretary of State spokesman  said he would not order a recall election in Sinema’s case because the congresswoman is not bound by the state’s recall law, the Libertarian group still wants to invalidate her seat.  In light of the controversial mail out by the ADP, Shipley said: “Don’t underestimate Libertarians because we are here to stay.”

Political dirty tricks happen within both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, but the ADP has sunken to an all new low this time.  It appears ADP’s arrogance with regard to Congressional District 9 underscores their belief that CD9 voters are politically under educated.

According to AZ Central:

“Obviously we prefer Kyrsten Sinema,” said Quinlan. But “our calculation is there are probably a lot of conservative voters who realize (Gammill) is a far more consistent conservative than Wendy Rogers. … We’re pretty much taking (Gammill’s) positions directly from his website and sharing them.”

We implore key swing independent voters of Arizona (now largest voting bloc) to teach Rep. Kyrsten Sinema a lesson specifically in Congressional District 9.  We also implore Sinema’s Latino and Chicano Democratic voting constituents to vote anyone but Sinema and recall to their memory her flip flop on immigration Carlos Galindo exposes repeatedly on his national political talk radio program.  Galindo is a former liberal now registered independent voter of Arizona.

Galindo wrote:

It appears Andiola’s recent departure from Sinema’s employ may have been a forced departure, based on pressure that was placed on Sinema and her congressional office for hiring a staffer who is supportive of an Immigration “advocate” who spews anti-USA rhetoric. Just as important, according to sources, Andiola was a $50,000 a year congressional office staffer allegedly mooching for money to take a trip to Washington with her mom. See screenshot below. 

ADP’s DJ Quinlan is banking on his perception of naïve Republicans believing Powell Gammill is more “conservative” than Wendy Rogers when in fact, Libertarian candidate Powell Gammill is for open borders.  It is also well known how Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema flip flopped on the immigration issue; where she gets tough on immigration on one day — while reversing her view on another day.  Unfortunately and the problem we have with Sinema is voters will not know what they will get with her in light of her many reversals and stances to include criticism with regard to her  exploiting veterans and Latinos.

Make no mistake, our group to include independent registered women, Chicanos, and Latinos want legal immigration reform.  We do not want to be used as political footballs, and while the ADP gave Sinema a free pass to the SB1225 regard, our informed community will not give her one nor will we allow her to forget it.

Michele Reagan Releases First All-Spanish Ad

Michele Reagan

Friends,

I am very excited to share with you that our campaign has released our first Spanish language television commercial of the campaign – narrated by State Representative Lydia Hernández of Legislative District 29.

The all-Spanish language ad, which is being broadcast on Univision and cable television this week, is part of a Hispanic voter outreach program launched by my campaign. In the commercial, Representative Hernández highlights the need to have a Secretary of State with a track record of working on bipartisan solutions and passing legislation benefitting Arizona’s diverse population.

The Secretary’s Office is one which must protect the integrity of each and every voter in the State of Arizona. The practice of ballot harvesting occurring in Arizona is manipulating peoples’ voice and their vote.

In addition to the commercial, my reform plan also available in Spanish on my website.  I want the Hispanic Community to know they play an equally important part in our democratic process under a Reagan administration.

Watch the commercial now, in English or in Spanish:
