Grassroots Interviews with LD 17 House candidate Donald Hawker

Last night on Grassroots Interviews, I interviewed Donald Hawker. He’s the only Republican running for the House on the ballot in the primary since Augustus Shaw got kicked off the ballot for not living in LD 17 (according to the courts). Of course, Wendy Rogers is the Republican running for the Senate in LD 17. Ms. Rogers will be on the show AFTER the August 24 primary since she is running uncontested. I wish Donald Hawker a lot of luck in his race. I hope he can win a seat in the House come November!

  1. While you’re at it, why don’t you show this nutjob’s website? There isn’t enough tin foil in the free world to make a hat big enough for this loser.

    Think I’m kidding? Go to an LD17 meeting and listen to his wife…not him, as he has no opinions.

    He only has one platform….pro-life. If you ask him anything outside of that, he either doesn’t have a coherent answer, or he steers it back to pro-life.

    Don’t bother trying to reach him online…he can’t answer until the public library opens, as he has no computer.

    Of the 700 plus signatures he received, they were all gathered by his wife, who camped outside the Tempe public library and basically badgered people into signing. Most did so just to get rid of her.

    An unofficial poll of the LD17 PCs indicate that maybe 1% or less would vote for him. Approximately three PCs might help him in his campaign.

    This guy is such a joke the Dem’s aren’t even bothering to acknowledge him.

  2. Anyone can visit Mr. Hawker’s website. In fact, the URL is visible in the embedded video without playing it.

    Watch the video. Mr. Hawker has his own opinions. I asked him about a range of topics and he answered all of them with no help from his wife.

    Is owning a computer a requirement for holding public office? I missed that one. Seems awful classist.

    I’ll take Mr. Hawker over a Democrat any day.

  3. “Anyone can visit Mr. Hawker’s website. In fact, the URL is visible in the embedded video without playing it.”

    True. I encourage anyone who thinks this candidate is sane to go to it and draw their own conclusions.

    “Watch the video. Mr. Hawker has his own opinions.”

    “Is owning a computer a requirement for holding public office?”

    It might help if you want to…I dunno…stay in touch with your constituents and possibly answer their questions?

    The fact remains he has no money and no support. Markus, I’m sure you provide some sort of service, but I’m not seeing it for Hawker. The more he stays in public view, the nuttier he becomes.

    “I asked him about a range of topics and he answered all of them…”

    Yes. Poorly.

    All canned and scripted, with no substance.

    It sounds a lot like a couple of the questions in the interview had the answers in them especially when it was obvious the question went over Hawker’s head.

  5. Johnny Mendez says

    I also like the part when the interviewer acknowledges a topic/question is a federal issue but asks it any ways.
    It’s almost like he is apologizing for using an issue that has no barring on the state to manipulate how we would view Hawker

    While I may state my opinions, candidates are free to disagree with me and they often do.

    @LD17

    It’s Marcus with a “c.” Spelling it with a “k” looks goofy.
