Congratulations Thomas Dunn!

Congratulations to Thomas Dunn of Think Right Arizona on his appointment to the postion of Member-At-Large of the Pima County Republican Party!

Once upon a time I served on that same committee so I certainly recognize the challenges associated with being a Republican in a Democratic County.

Congratulations Thomas!

  1. Yes, the challenges meaning not promoting Pima County GOP candidates.

  2. thanks for the mention. Cheers to Chad for looking at the big picture, which is to take our Congressional seats back, CD 5 & CD 8 (along with LD 26 at the state level) need to return to the red.

    2008 will be very challenging, not only in Pima County, but state-wide.
    The big question is “Do you want Harry & Gabby representing you in Congress for the foreseeable future?” If yes, then let’s fight amongst ourselves, if NO, then we must come together & kick Gabby & Harry out. CD 5 is not my neck of the woods, but learn from 2006 CD 8, divisiveness will not produce victory. Maintain Reagan’s 11th Commandment & when a primary victor is determined, support ’em.
    In CD 8, Gabby must be “one-n-done”. If Bee does chose to run, get behind him with all you can. If we don’t, get used to hearing about Gabby & her astro-husband for years to come.

  3. We have high hopes for Tom D. Congrats and best wishes. Thanks for taking this assignment.

    Bee can kick Gabby out of office if he’ll get busy. Send her to Houston. Bee has a clear field and he’s a great bridge between the conservatives and moderates. He’s also got the geographic advantage of name recognition and great record in Pima and Cochise county. He’ll have the entire support of Republicans in CD8. Don’t see any crossover votes to Giffords and the Indy vote will break Bee’s way.

    The GOP will be quite united in kicking Gabby out of office and picking up seats in the Arizona legislature.

  4. PLEASE ADD MY CONGRATULATIONS TO TOM DUNN ON HIS SELECTION TO THE PIMA COUNTY GOP EXCOMM.

    TOM IS WELL RESPECTED,PLUGGED IN AND A REAL WORKER. TOM UNDERSTANDS WHAT IS AT STAKE IN THE 2008 ELECTION AND WILL BE A TEAM PLAYER TO GET THE JOB DUNN (SORRY–I COULD NOT RESIST). TOM ALSO GETS THE IMPORTANCE OF THE LATINO VOTE , RETAINING BUSINESS SUPPORT AND GOP BRANDING IN THIS UPCOMING ELECTION.

    WHILE I AM AT THINGS LET ME JUST SAY A WORD IN SUPPORT OF SOMETHING BOB POSTED ON CROSS OVERS. IN 2006 THERE WERE A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF GOP CROSS OVER VOTERS WHO SUPPORTED THE DEMO NOMINEE. WITH TIM BEE AS OUR POTENTIAL NOMINEE IN 2008 WE HAVE A MAN WHO HAS GREAT SUPPORT AMONGST REPUBLICANS, INDEPENDENTS AND DEMOCRATS AS WELL DURING HIS DAYS IN THE ARIZONA SENATE. HIS 4 ELECTIONS IN LD 30 BEAR THIS OUT WHERE HE NOT ONLY TROUNCED THE DEM OPPONENT BUT DID IT WITH SO MANY CROSS OVER VOTES.

    IN 2008 GABBY WILL NOT ONLY LOSE HER 2006 CROSS OVERS BUT ALSO FACES THE LOSS OF THE HARD LEFTIES IN HER OWN PARTY WHO WILL SAY SHE HAS NOT BEEN PUNITIVE ENOUGH WITH THE PRESIDENT ON THE WAR , BUDGET AND MANY OF THEIR SO CALLED “PROGRESSIVE AGENDA” ITEMS.

    LET ME TELL YOU BROTHERS AND SISTERS………GIFFORDS IS ANYTHING BUT THE CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRAT SHE AND HER SPIN MEISTERS HAVE TRIED TO PORTRAY HER SINCE 2006 . SHE DOES NOT REFLECT THE VIEWS AND INTERESTS OF CD 8 VOTERS.

    THE SELECTION OF TOM DUNN TO THE PIMA GOP POST FURTHER POSITIONS US FOR SUCCESS IN 2008. I HOPE WE WILL ALL UNITE BEHIND OUR PARTY AND OUR EXCELLENT CANDIDATES IN 2008.

    GO GOP !!!!!!!

  5. Isn’t Tom the idiot who says the Republicans are going to lose big because they upset the Mexican vote. Then he turns around and says Bee will win, even though the guy voted for the employer sanctions bill. Tom by your own logic Bee is going to lose.

  6. Kim,

    My concerns have been about the rhetoric on the illegal-immigration issue. I’ve always been for secure borders & enforcement of the law.

    Winning elections is very much about marketing and demographics. If the Republicans ignore an important voter block, it will hurt us. Especially when the Hispanic block is very much in line the the GOP on many important issues (i.e. family value issues, taxation & school choice to name a few). They are with us on most issues & the rhetoric on illegal immigration has been so divisive that they are being driven away.

    With regards to the employer sanctions bill, the alternative was to have a referendum which, if there were problems with it (hospitals, etc.) [41% of illegals simply over-stay their paperwork – whatabout annual re-certifications of employees?], would be nearly impossible to correct (see Clean Elections – we’re stuck with that wonderful legislation). Most of the state budget is locked up due to referendums requiring the state to spend so much on specific things.

    If the Legislature creates the Bill & needs to modify it, it is not as daunting a task.

    Bee will win. Bee accomplishes tasks without rancor & bitterness.

  7. “Bee accomplishes tasks without rancor & bitterness.”

    Does this mean your snarky comments against Randy Pullen will stop?

  8. “snarky” is an outstanding word. I had to google it. [Dane Cook reference]

    I haven’t commented on the State GOP in nearly six months. I support the cause. & the cause is to win back our seats.

  9. Thomas!

    Cheers bro! Good job on handling “Kim.” No shortage of courtesy on their side.

    Again congrats!
