I’m confident Shawnna is the right person for the job because she is very committed in working with local officials to further streamline the permitting process and attracting high skilled jobs to Arizona.  Shawnna would be a terrific addition to the Arizona Legislature because she firmly believes in keeping taxes low and improving government efficiency – the right combination to attract and retain employers.”

Mark Brnovich Leading in New Poll Among Arizona GOP Primary Voters

Mark Brnovich Leading in New Poll Among Arizona
GOP Primary Voters

A new poll released today by Magellan Strategies of likely Arizona GOP primary voters shows that political challenger and former prosecutor Mark Brnovich is now leading incumbent Attorney General Tom Horne in the August Republican primary. 33% of the respondents are supporting Brnovich compared to 32% for Horne, while 35% are undecided.

The polling results are consistent with previous internal polling that has shown Brnovich within single digits of the turmoiled incumbent.

The poll also shows that Tom Horne’s favorability ratings have dropped as allegations of illegal activity continue to swirl around his conduct and that of his campaign. 49% of GOP primary voters have an “unfavorable” opinion of Tom Horne, compared to 24% who have a “favorable” opinion of him.

“This poll reflects what we’ve known all along,” said Ryan Anderson, Brnovich’s campaign manager. “Republican primary voters are looking for an alternative to the scandal-plagued tenure of Tom Horne. Horne’s support has hit a ceiling and the only remaining question is how low can he fall? In contrast, Mark Brnovich has momentum and his support is growing.”

He continued: “We have focused almost entirely on a grassroots campaign and earned media and the results are paying off. Republican voters have not only found an alternative in Mark Brnovich, but they’ve rallied around a more qualified candidate who can actually win this November.”

The Magellan Strategies poll was conducted May 13-14 among 760 likely Arizona GOP primary voters. The MOE is 3.55%.

Obrewercare Loses in Court!  Do the Vocabulary Governor Brewer.

The State Court of Appeals ruled on April 22nd that the Arizona Principled Republican Legislators can sue to stop OBrewercare, Governor Brewer’s plan to bring the Obamacare Medicaid Expansion to Arizona.  The 36 Legislators say the process to pass Obrewercare is illegal.

Stop OBrewercare in Arizona!

Stop OBrewercare in Arizona!

Last year Governor Brewer called a Special Session and nine House republicans joined the Democrats to shove the Obamacare Medicaid Expansion down our throats.

The 36 Principled Republican Legislators sued because the people of Arizona have said that if you want to raise our taxes then we require a two-thirds majority not a simple majority.  (The AZ Constitution requires a two-third majority vote to raise taxes due to Proposition 108 passed in 2008.)  The Governor’s team tried to argue that the legislature itself decides if and when they want to follow which parts of the Constitution.  Brewer says that they decided they only needed nine republicans to cross over, or in her words, a majority, because they could not get a super-majority vote.

The courts have ruled that when the people pass a proposition requiring a two-thirds majority then you have to have a two-thirds majority.

Now the case can go to court.  The case itself is about if a tax is a tax because according to Brewer if she calls it a “fee” or an “assessment” then it is not a “tax”.  Because she says so.

Brewer also says that Medicaid Expansion is not Obamacare.

Brewer also says that Common Core is not Common Core anymore because she says.

To be clear, all that has been decided is that the case can go to court.

The Governor’s response to the ruling is interesting:  “Legislators can vote on a bill, lose on the bill, then take it to court and win.  That to me doesn’t make any sense.”

There you have it.  The Governor of Arizona does not understand that the courts exist as a check and balance to the legislative and executive branches of government.  The Governor who has sued her own legislative body is shocked that her tyrannical actions are questionable in court.

OBrewercare is alive in court.  Governor Brewer is being forced to follow the Arizona Constitution and the will of the people.  The will as the people intended it not the will of her advisors not the will of the greedy lobbyists and not the will of the crony capitalists.  Arizona needs to elect Principled Republicans in the Primary this August.

Shawnna Bolick Receives Endorsement from Former Congressman Ben Quayle

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Phoenix, AZ- May 7, 2014- Today, Shawnna Bolick, Republican candidate for Arizona House of Representatives in Legislative District 28, received the endorsement of former Congressman Ben Quayle.

“In politics, there are talkers and there are doers.  Shawnna is a doer and that is why I proudly endorse her candidacy for our legislative district.  I have seen Shawnna’s passion for education reform that will allow our students to reach their full potential.  She believes that all children should have access to a top notch education, because it is the key to a prosperous future.  This dedication was also evidenced when Shawnna successfully mobilized a broad coalition of parents at her son’s school that resulted in tens of thousands of dollars for classroom grants.  Shawnna’s keen ability to bring stakeholders together will be an enormous asset in our state legislature.  Arizona can lead into the 21st century, but we need to elect people like Shawnna to make that a reality.”

“It is an absolute pleasure to receive Mr. Quayle’s endorsement,” declared Bolick.  “Ben represented our Congressional district well during his brief tenure in DC.  After Ben was elected I worked with him and his office on issues that might affect charter school expansion and he came to the table prepared.  He truly understood the need for local autonomy and governance in our educational system. He also has a keen ear for small business needs and wasn’t afraid to take on President Obama.  We need more elected officials willing to protect the states from further federal overreach.”

Shawnna Bolick has lived in Legislative District 28 for 13 years.  Shawnna and her husband, Clint, have two children, Ryne (12) and Kali (9), plus their six year old rescued greyhound, Beary Goldwater, living in the shadows of Squaw Peak.

Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney Endorses Andy Tobin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney Endorses Andy Tobin

Andy Tobin is the conservative that rural Arizona needs…

Navajo County support continues to rally behind Andy Tobin with Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney’s endorsement today. Tobin has long been a fierce advocate for rural community roads, fire safety, water rights and economic development.

“Andy Tobin is the conservative leader that rural Arizona needs to fight for our practical way of life,” said Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney. “I have spent a lot of time working with Andy to fight for the issues that we care about here in Navajo County, and he has been a champion that gets things done. He has played a key part in the fight to restore much of the money that cities, towns and counties lost from our state’s Highway User Revenue Fund (HURF). As a rural lawmaker he knows that those funds make all the difference to maintaining roads in Navajo County. Andy also understands that Arizona relies heavily on the ability of forest industries to have access to our forests to restore their health, create jobs, reduce threats to our communities, supply clean water, and improve recreation and tourism. He understands that to fuel the rural business of Arizona and to protect our communities from disastrous wildfires, the federal government must use taxpayer resources wisely, and accelerate the success of forest restoration that has taken place in Arizona during the last ten years. Andy has lived in and fought for Arizona since he brought his family here over 30 years ago. He knows rural Arizona, and that is why I endorse Andy Tobin for Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”

“Supervisor Tenney is a powerhouse conservative advocate for Navajo County,” said Tobin. “Communities from Kayenta and Holbrook to Show Low have been positively impacted by our relentless fight to restore HURF money. We need to get the EPA off the backs of rural communities who power our state and provide our water. I sincerely thank Supervisor Tenney for his support. Having him on my team will go a long way in Navajo County.”
