Ken Bennett, Jeff DeWit, Casey Jones Endorse Robert Graham for AZGOP Chairman

Under Graham the “Conservative Cause Moved Forward” to “Make Great Gains in State and Nation”

PHOENIX – Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham today announced receiving additional endorsements from former Secretary of State Ken Bennett and State of Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWit who are supporting his re-election as Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party.

Casey Jones, Chairman of the Cochise County Republican Committee, also endorsed Graham and was joined by two AZGOP Coalition Chairmen: Barry Wong, Chairman of the Asian American Coalition (Wong is also an elected AZGOP Member-at-Large in CD 7) and Clyde Bowen, Chairman of the Arizona American African Republican Committee. Judy Alexander, President of the Cobre Valley Republican Club also announced the club voted unanimously to endorse Graham for a second term.

“I had the privilege of serving our state these past years in legislative leadership and as the Secretary of State. As a life long Republican, and a current precinct committeeman and district chair, I understand the role that our state party can play in helping the party have current data, and a strong organization around the state. Under Chairman Robert Graham’s leadership, the conservative cause has moved forward and our state party has been strengthened. Robert has my support to serve another term,” said Ken Bennett, former Arizona Secretary of State and newly-elected Chairman of the Legislative District 24 Republican Committee.

“During my campaign, I tirelessly traveled to every corner of Arizona talking to voters about my Constitutional Conservative values and listening to what was important to them. Often, even in the furthest parts of our state, I saw Chairman Robert Graham and was impressed by how hard he was working to build the party. I am excited to serve Arizona and work with him in the coming years as we help the Conservative movement make great gains in our state and nation,” said State of Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWit.

Recently Elected Republican Party Leaders Throughout Maricopa County Endorse Robert Graham for Chairman

PHOENIX – Chairman Robert Graham of the Arizona Republican Party today announced additional endorsements from numerous elected Republican Party officials from throughout Maricopa County. Graham is actively campaigning in an election to be held at the biennial meeting of the State Committee on January 24, 2015 at the Grace Community Church in Tempe.

I am proud to endorse Robert Graham for State Chairman. I have known Robert now for 4 years and I personally know how actively involved he is in moving our party forward. In addition to his duties as our current state chairman, Robert is an active PC in my District LD 15, where he was our highest recruiter of PC’s over the past two years. I have personally witnessed the transformation and renovation of our former dilapidated headquarters building into a state of the art social media, technology war room staffed with dedicated technology experts devoted to keeping Arizona Red! Robert took over as chairman 2 years ago with a deficit of $70,000 which he turned that red line into black within 30 days and has kept our party’s balance in the positive ever since. I have also personally witnessed his energy and direct involvement in our community, welcoming different ethnic groups into both LD15 and other LD’s statewide. Our party so needs this type of outreach and Robert’s purposeful dedication to this and projects such as paid registration drives has increased Republican registrations 10,000 more than Democrats at this time two years ago! Again I am proud to endorse Robert Graham for State Chairman!” said David Henderson, Chairman of the Legislative District 15 Republican Committee.

“Robert Graham is a positive leader who wants to advance conservative principles. We are lucky to have a leader who embraces new technology, is a great fundraiser, and can enthusiastically lead our party to elect a Republican nominee for President in 2016,” said Trevor Hansen, Chairman of the Legislative District 16 Republican Committee.

Former Legislative District 18 Chairman David Bushman has also endorsed Graham, as has Mary Baumbach, past President of the Ahwatukee Republican Women’s Club.

“Friends, as an LD Chairman of LD19 , precinct committeeman and grassroots activist, I am proud to support Chairman Robert Graham for re-election as State Chairman. With his business background, Robert was able to increase the resources at the State Party’s disposal and increase outreach to minority groups. There is no one better positioned to run the State Party as we get ready for 2016 and I’m proud to throw my full support behind him,” said Jorge Ortiz, Sr., Chairman of the Legislative District 19 Republican Committee.

“I am proud to endorse Chairman Robert Graham in his re-election for State Party Chairman. He has spent countless hours working with and supporting grassroots conservatives across this state. He brings high energy, great resources and an unwavering work ethic to the State Party. As a precinct committeeman and LD-20 chairman, my full support is with Robert,” said Ray Malnar, Chairman of the Legislative District 20 Republican Committee.

“Chairman Robert Graham has my support and endorsement for re-election as AZGOP Chairman. Chairman Graham has done an outstanding job of helping to achieve GOP wins throughout the state. Through his leadership we have made huge gains in technology such as i360 and we were able to re-open the West Valley Republican Victory Office where we staged many events including walks and phone banks. His RAT pack did so much to strengthen our ranks and could be focused like a laser where needed. He has done far more to support PCs than any other Chairman in recent history.  I look forward to two more years working with Robert and his staff. Please join me in supporting Robert Graham for Chairman of the AZGOP,” said Kevin Payne, Chairman of the Legislative District 21 Republican Committee.

Graham has been endorsed by Eric Morgan, Chairman of the Legislative District 22 Republican Committee, who thanked Graham several months ago and said, “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.”

After some difficult times and having to make difficult decisions regarding candidates. elections and policies, Robert Graham has helped LD 27 reach out to the minority voters in our community and has pledged his support in our ongoing efforts in the future. Therefore, I am endorsing him to continue as Chairman in the coming term,” said Ron Harders, Chairman of the Legislative District 27 Republican Committee.

“As conservatives we know we are right on the issues and our ideas make sense for all Americans. Just as a rising tide lifts all boats, a strong, cohesive message of the virtues and blessings of our Republican principles resonate with voters every time that message is properly delivered. Chairman Robert Graham is bringing forth that message with the innovation and effective leadership we needed to enhance our traditional Republican constituencies and is rapidly building solid new alliances that can bring the kind of election victories that will have a real impact on public policy in Arizona and support our national Republican agenda. I encourage all Republicans to join me in supporting Robert Graham for another term as our State Party Chairman,” said Gary Hirsch, Chairman of the Legislative District 30 Republican Committee.

Maricopa County is Arizona’s most populated county and home to nearly 700,000 Republican voters, about 60 percent of all Republicans in Arizona. Legislative District map is here.

That wailing and moaning you’re about to hear

 

AFP

Dear Arizona Taxpayer:

The wailing and moaning you’re about to hear on your television and see in your newspaper is the sound of Arizona’s spending lobbies after they read the executive budget released today by Arizona’s new Governor, Doug Ducey.

TAKE ACTION TO SUPPORT GOV. DUCEY’S BUDGET

Supporters of Big Government will HATE this budget:

●  The school district bureaucrats who steal money from the students and teachers in our classrooms will loathe the fact that Gov. Ducey’s budget reduces administrative bureaucracy by $113 million (with no cuts to actual classroom spending).

●  The corporate crony capitalists will wail about the $100 million slush fund Gov. Ducey wants to take away from the Arizona Commerce Authority.

●  The educrats who waste taxpayer money and student tuition dollars at our community colleges and universities will scream about the $84 million in reductions to their budgets.

They and their hundreds of lobbyists are going to fight hard to try to stop these cuts.  We need Arizona’s taxpayers, producers and consumers to STAND UP NOW and support Gov. Ducey’s budget reforms.

Ducey’s budget has more than $660 million in spending reductions for the fiscal year starting July 1 ($360 million is permanent and $304 million is temporary).  The permanent reductions will increase to nearly $450 million in the following fiscal year, when – for the first time since the go-go days of the real estate boom – the state budget will actually be structurally balanced.  WITH NO TAX INCREASES.

For real.

We’re not kidding.

We have always had a core of real fiscal conservatives at the Arizona Legislature who believed in balanced budgets and wanted to protect Arizona’s taxpayers, producers and consumers.  But for the first time in recent memory, an Arizona governor is actually taking the leadership role of holding the line against the growth of Big Government.

The executive budgets of Governors Napolitano and Brewer had absurdly high revenue predictions and dangerously high spending proposals that had to be cut down by the real leaders in the Legislature.  But it’s a new day in Arizona!  (For you budget wonks out there, Gov. Ducey’s $9.1 billion budget is well under the prudent budget limit of population-plus-inflation.)

Thank you for TAKING ACTION TODAY to fight Big Government in Arizona!

Also, if you want to send a personal thank-you note to Governor Ducey, you can find his contact page HERE.

For Liberty & Prosperity, Tom

Arizona First in Nation to Pass Civics Education Initiative

CEI

Large, Bipartisan Majorities Show Support for the First Step in a Rebirth of Civics Education

Phoenix, Arizona – With large, bipartisan majorities in the State Legislature, Arizona today became the first state to pass the Civics Education Initiative.  The Civics Education Initiative requires high school students, as a condition of graduation, to take and pass the USCIS Citizenship Civics Test – the test all new immigrants must pass before becoming citizens.

“Proud day for Arizonans as we become first in the nation, and lead the way to the bipartisan passage of the Civics Education Initiative in every state,” said Frank Riggs, President and CEO of the Scottsdale-based Joe Foss Institute, the organization promoting the legislation.

Beyond Arizona, eighteen other states are currently considering this critical legislation. North Dakota and Utah appear to be next in line, with legislators and supporters in those states eager to follow Arizona’s lead, with the North Dakota House of Representatives also passing the bill today by an astounding 85-1 margin.

The leadership of the Joe Foss Institute and the Civics Education Initiative would like to extend special thanks to Governor Ducey, prime sponsor Majority Leader Steve Montenegro (R-13), House Government and Education Committee Chairman Bob Thorpe (R-6) and the members of his committee, and Minority Leader Dr. Eric Meyer (D-28).

In the Senate, special thanks go out to Majority Leader Steve Yarbrough (R-17), Senate Education Committee Chairman Kelli Ward (R-5) and the members of her committee, Senator Barbara McGuire (D-8), and Senator Carlyle Begay (D-7).

“It’s a New Year, and a new day for students here in Arizona and across the country who will now have the basic tools they need to become active, engaged citizens,” concluded Riggs.

The bill passed the Arizona House by a vote of 42-17. In the Senate the results were similarly positive, with 19 for and only 10 voting against.

Any time I needed his advise, he was there. I got to know Robert during my campaign and believe Robert has the best interest of the Republican Party in Arizona in mind at all times. I endorse Robert for Chairman of the AZGOP and, as Chairman of the Pinal County Republican Committee, I look forward to working with him and his staff for the 2016 elections,” said Chairman Irene Littleton of the Pinal County Republican Committee.

Vince Manfredi, Chairman of the Legislative District 4 Republican Committee in Pinal County, said, “Robert has done an excellent job as chairman. And I look forward to the next two years we take back the White House. Without his help here in Pinal County there’s no way we make the impact we did.”

John Acton, the newly-elected Constable for Pinal County’s District 7, said, “Thank you, Robert, for your help and guidance with my campaign, you have my full endorsement.”

Pinal County is Arizona’s third largest county by population and is home to more than 50,000 Republican voters.

Graham is running for a second term as Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party and is actively campaigning in an election to be held at the biennial meeting of the State Committee on January 24, 2015 at the Grace Community Church in Tempe.

Republican Leaders in Maricopa, Graham, Coconino and Gila Counties Endorse Robert Graham

PHOENIX – Today Robert Graham released a second round of endorsements from elected Republican Party leaders in Maricopa, Graham, Gila and Coconino counties. Graham seeks a second term as Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party and is actively campaigning in an election to be held at the biennial meeting of the State Committee on January 24, 2015 at the Grace Community Church in Tempe.

“Robert Graham has done an excellent job as Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, with Republicans being elected to all statewide positions. It is my honor and pleasure to endorse Robert Graham for reelection as Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party,” said Ian Murray, Chairman of the Legislative District 25 Republican Committee.

“Robert, after working with you the last two years, I feel that what you have accomplished and your leadership leaves me no choice but to give my endorsement of you for Arizona Republican Party Chairman. Therefore as Graham County Republican Chairman, I give you my full endorsement for reelection as Arizona Republican Party Chair, 2014- 2016 election cycle. Keep up the fundraising and electing Republicans to our state and federal offices!” said John Rhodes, Chairman of the Graham County Republican Party.

“I support Robert Graham for reelection as AZGOP Chairman. Robert deserves a second term. He has been accessible and responsive to me as Chairman of Coconino County Republicans. He has tried to engage the entire state, and not just the great state of Maricopa! He has committed to having a debriefing meeting with his County and LD Chairs to see what went right and what went wrong. I don’t recall that happening in the past. He has worked hard to try and energize and engage the state while raising money to fund campaign efforts. There is always room for improvement. 2016 will be an extremely important election year. We need experience and dedication. I believe we have that in Robert Graham,” said Joy Staveley, Chairman of the Coconino County Republican Committee.

Earlier this month Graham received the endorsement of Gila County Republican Committee Chairman Gary Morris, and today received the endorsements of additional longtime Gila County Republican leaders Don Ascoli, Sam Moorhead, and Shirley Dye.
