Kirkpatrick Complies with Gosar’s Challenge

Flagstaff, AZ. June 24, 2010:  On June 18, 2010, in response to headlines reporting that  the U.S. Department of Justice under the directions of President Obama will sue the state of Arizona over SB 1070, Dr. Paul Gosar, CD1 republican primary frontrunner, issued a challenge to President Obama and Representative Kirkpatrick to “Secure our border, don’t sue Arizona” and specifically to Kirkpatrick, “I call on you to stand with me and with Sheriff Babeu, Sheriff Arpaio, former Coconino County Sheriff Joe Richards and with the vast majority of Arizonans and denounce this administration’s challenge to SB 1070.

Just three days later, Kirkpatrick’s office issued the following statement in a June 21st, 2010 press release, “I am calling on the President and the Attorney General,” said Kirkpatrick, “to abandon preparations for a lawsuit against Arizona, and to recommit to finding a national solution to fixing this national problem.

In the very same statement, Kirkpatrick says, “I oppose SB 1070….” However, she does not want the Obama Administration to sue the state of Arizona.  Instead, she seeks to use the publicity of a state and national crisis to promote herself and her liberal political ambitions.  She attempts to protect the state of Arizona while being openly against a law overwhelmingly supported by her constituents.

Dr. Gosar had the following response to Kirkpatrick’s statement, “I am glad that Rep. Kirkpatrick has decided to follow my lead and join the thousands of Arizonans already denouncing the administration’s intent to sue our state.  Whether it was my statement calling on her to act last Friday or the press conference I held with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and State Representative Frank Pratt in front of her office in Casa Grande early Monday morning, I am glad that my challenges to her have been answered.  Unfortunately her response looks to be nothing more than another failed attempt by this liberal Democrat to move herself closer to the center.  District 1 deserves true leadership, not election year platitudes.

Dr. Gosar, who has consistently outraised every other Republican candidate in the primary election, continues to gain momentum for his tough stance on illegal immigration and restoring common sense, no-nonsense solutions back to Washington.  He has earned the endorsements of:  Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, former Coconino County Sheriff Joe Richards, former AZ Attorney General & NRA President Bob Corbin, Pinal County Supervisor Bryan Martyn and many others.

Dr. Gosar, a 25 year resident of Flagstaff, father of three, sports and hunting enthusiast has been traveling all over Arizona’s First Congressional District for the nearly a year now and has enjoyed meeting with supporters who share his belief that his background, and his expertise in rural Arizona’s way of life, make him the GOP favorite to unseat liberal incumbent Ann Kirkpatrick.  Dr. Gosar has practiced dentistry in Flagstaff for 25 years and is Arizona’s former “Dentist of the Year.”
