Last week, a mailer went out from an independent expenditure in support of Kate Brophy McGee. On the mailer, was a list of organizations that endorsed Brophy McGee in her race for Arizona State Senate. One of those endorsements was Arizona Right to Life.
This endorsement was incorrect. Arizona Right to Life did NOT endorse Kate Brophy McGee.
This was brought to my attention because I was once the Executive Director and Director for the Arizona Right to Life.
Given Brophy McGee’s voting record, she has never been endorsed by Arizona Right to Life.
In her Primary race, she is running unopposed as a Republican. She receive the Republican nomination on Tuesday, August 30th. She will run against a rabidly liberal, pro-abortion Democrat, Eric Meyer, in the General Election.
The mailer that was sent out was produced in error. Again, Kate Brophy-McGee was not endorsed by Arizona Right to Life.
The vendor who prepared the mailer, made an error. The vendor also released a letter and apology to Arizona Right to Life stating that mailer was done in error.
Here is that letter:
August 24, 2016
Arizona Right To Life
Attention Greg Hansen Jr.
4633 N 54th St, Phoenix, AZ 85018
Re: LD 28 Mail piece
We would like to offer our sincerest apologies for having listed Az. Right To Life on the LD 28 endorsement piece we did for a client recently.
By way of background, I am pro-life and had the privilege of working for your organization several years ago. I hold your organization in high esteem.
It is always an honor for a candidate to receive the endorsement from Az. Right To Life. However, due to an unfortunate error on my part, your organization was listed for someone who was not on your endorsed list. For that, we sincerely apologize to Arizona Right To Life and to you Greg, for this error.
We wish you the very best this election season. If you have any other concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me.
