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.

After Preventing Competition in Primary Election, AZ Democrats Suddenly Interested in Voters?
PHOENIX - Today Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham reminded Arizona voters that state Democrat leaders unilaterally chose their nominees, deliberately avoiding providing meaningful choices for voters in the August primary election. Graham said no amount of participation from national Democrat leaders now can overcome the resulting weakened state of the Democrat candidates in Arizona.
“Bringing in a figure as controversial as Debbie Wasserman Schultz only serves to show how tone-deaf Arizona Democrats are about the role of voters in their own elections,” said Robert Graham, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. “You’d think lobbyist Fred DuVal, who is trying to reposition himself and shed his well-deserved liberal image — that he would join his fellow party insiders and stay away from her hyperpartisanship as leader of the Democratic National Committee.”
While the nation today is celebrating National Voter Registration Day, Democrats still face an uphill battle. In Maricopa County, which contains more than 60% of the state’s voters, Republican voters outnumber Democrat voters by 12 percent. And low registration numbers are only part of the Democrats’ problems: Republican turnout in the last month’s primary election was also 12 percent higher than that of the Democrats.
“It’s no surprise that Fred DuVal would campaign with Debbie Wasserman Schultz considering she is a fellow Washington, DC liberal who supports increasing taxes, more regulations on employers and amnesty for illegal immigrants,” said Jordan Rose, founder and president of Rose Law Group, Arizona’s largest female-owned law firm. “Wasserman Schultz’s record of advocating for policies that hurt hardworking families is a perfect fit for DuVal, a lobbyist, who intends to run up the debt, explode the size of government and pass the bill on to taxpayers.”
POLITICO recently reported that many of Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s fellow Democrats “have lost confidence in her as both a unifying leader and reliable party spokesperson at a time when they need her most.” But Fred DuVal and other Arizona Democrats apparently can’t wait to rally with her in Phoenix.
Arizona voters have the chance to hear from the DNC Chair who:
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.
Philip Bentley, Major USAF
E. Ray Gross
Pete Hershberger, former Arizona State Representative
Lanny Kope, Colonel USMC (Ret.)
Paul Loomis, former Mayor of Oro Valley
Kris Mayes, former Arizona Corporation Commissioner
John Wesley Miller
Tom Norris, USAF Lt Col (Ret.)
David Rataczak, Major General USAF (Ret.)
Lynne Skelton, Council Member Sahuarita
Bob Strain, former Mayor of Sierra Vista
Bob Walkup, former Mayor of Tucson
John Wickham, General U.S. Army (Ret.)
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.
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.
AZGOP Chairman: Pay for Play Lobbying Scandal Involved Democrat Lobbyist Now Running for Arizona Governor
Robert Graham to Democrat Candidate: What Were You Thinking?
PHOENIX – Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, Robert Graham, today sent a fourth letter to the Democrat nominee for governor of Arizona asking for more information about the nominee’s career as a lobbyist, specifically about his involvement in a “pay-for-play” scandal involving lucrative government contracts in exchange for massive political campaign contributions in New Mexico.
“Your deep involvement in New Mexico politics – engaged with an incumbent governor who can best be described as “ethically challenged” – raises serious doubts about your judgment,” asked Robert Graham, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. “Is that the way you’ll do business in Arizona? Would a DuVal administration be another feeding frenzy for the politically-connected lobbying class, as it was in New Mexico?”

Arizona Legislator Rob Robson, recently endorsed by Governor Brewer, was cited late Monday with a Class 2 Misdemeanor for stealing yard signs! The Maricopa County Sheriffs Department cited the thieving Legislator for violating section 16-1019A – tampering with campaign signs and set a court date for September 2, 2014 in the San Marco Court, presided over by Judge Frankle at 9:00 am.
Robson received $15,000 from Governor Brewer who refers to all who have promised to keep Obamacare and Common Core in Arizona as “responsible, considerate Republicans.” Suspending the Rules is considerate? I call that cheating. Spending more money than Arizona taxpayers make and pay in taxes to the state is responsible? I call that stealing. Only the Governor who calls a Special Session to pass a budget that is in-between committee could make these statements with a straight face.
Rob Robson was harshly censured by the Republican Party throughout Arizona for a list of votes which violate the core Republican principles of limited government and individual liberties including Obamacare Medicaid Expansion, Common Core, and increasing spending leaving Arizona taxpayers with a potential tax increase. Robson cheated in the Special Session when he voted to suspend the rules of the house to force OBrewercare Medicaid Expansion on Arizona.
Robson was then BLACKLISTED by the grassroots in Arizona and two excellent conservative candidates, John King and Jill Norgaard, stepped up to primary him in legislative district 18.
Throughout LD18 ‘Arrow of Truth’ signs begin popping up next to Robson’s signs with simple ‘Voted for Obamacare’ and an arrow pointing to the signs. The signs began disappearing so a team sat one night
|Arrow of Truth|
and witnessed Robson and an accomplice working as a team removing the signs and destroying them before disposing of them. They captured the vehicle leaving the scene with a license plate clearly reading “ROBSON”. The investigation is still ongoing.
‘Tidy the Tent’ in Arizona.
Remove ROB ROBSON. And Don’t Dial his buddy.

Great catch by Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio on the article in the Arizona Republic about gubernatorial candidate Scott Smith. I’ll let Sal’s Facebook post explain:
The article fails to mention Smith’s PR person is hired by the unions and is chairman of the dark money group “Independent Voices Arizona” which is attacking other Republicans. First time in AZ history a Gov candidate has on staff a dark money person and the media ignores that fact. He is paid by the same union that brought financial chaos to Phoenix, that spent $1.1 million attacking me and my family and is fighting against financial accountability.
I will have more to say about David Leibowtz later…
