Key Arizona Races Could Mean Big Wins for U.S.

By Joanne Moudy

As everyone knows, November 2014 will be a crucial election if Republicans hope to gain ground against Obamacare, amnesty and the skyrocketing debt. Quite frankly, if the GOP doesn’t rally in tremendous strength, this country may never recover and our grandchildren will be asking why we led them blindly down the path to the slaughterhouse.

This means that every state is critical and every seat is a must win. There are no U.S. House or Senate seats which are unimportant or inconsequential. Every single one matters.

Arizona is no exception. Currently the state enjoys the luxury of four conservative congressmen; Trent Franks, Matt Salmon, David Schweikert, and Paul Gosar, and in all likelihood, they will all be returning to Congress in November, which suits their districts just fine.

But there remain three additional U.S. House seats which could easily be gained out of the nine total in Arizona. And wouldn’t it be nice if solid Republicans picked these seats up? Nice indeed, because it would completely change the complexion of the current liberal leaning envoy from the 5-4 (D/R) to 7-2 (R/D). But the time is now or never, because even moderate, independent voters are mad about Obamacare, illegal immigration, and bad federal economic decisions, all of which are destroying this state.

On the liberal Democrat side, Reps. Krysten Sinema, Ann Kirkpatrick, and Ron Barber have experienced declining popularity because of their unwavering support of Obamacare, amnesty, and proposed Medicare cuts. At one point, Sinema knew she was in so much trouble she seriously considered switching districts to run in D-7, the heavily populated democratic region, which Ed Pastor is vacating. That would have been a much safer run for her, especially given the angst of voters over her open support of Obama’s liberal agenda.

What’s refreshing to see are three, relatively new faces entering the arena to fill these slots and all appear to be strong contenders working relentlessly to gain enlightened voter support across the state. Meet Andrew Walter, Adam Kwasman, and Chuck Wooten, all of whom bring unique talents to the fray and have excellent chances of success.

Although Andrew Walter isn’t known as a seasoned politician, he does have a familiar face around the state and country, and he’ll need it in the general race against liberal incumbent Sinema. His only opponent in the primary is Wendy Rogers, who’s run twice and lost twice. Many voters in the district are looking for a fresh candidate with a can-do attitude and believe that Walter is the person to do it.

Walter first earned his local reputation as ASU’s star quarterback and later as a 2005 draft pick for the Oakland Raiders, followed by the New England Patriots. After his football career he earned his MBA and worked in the banking industry, which gives him an in-depth business perspective on the state of our economy.

Aside from her radically liberal voting record, Sinema is a pathetic excuse for a member of congress and recently stepped in it, by taking advantage of the horrific death of 40 veterans. Sinema was quick to send out an email expressing her disappointment at the VA in one sentence, while she asked for campaign contributions in the next. When she was called out by Walter, she wasted no time in blaming a staffer. Really? How unusual for a liberal member of congress to feign ignorance, and blame someone else.

As Walter exclaimed, “Exactly how low can a person go? This is the ugliest display of political opportunism I’ve witnessed in a very long time. Not only should she accept responsibility and apologize to the entire district, she should also refund all the money, and make a donation to a veterans association – equal to the amount donated due to that email.”

Walter sees three top issues as his priorities. “One, we must unleash the American economy to create jobs by restoring basic free market principals. Two, we must repeal and replace Obamacare because nothing else will suffice, and three, we must, absolutely – not consider amnesty.” One more point worth mentioning, is that Walter does not see himself as a career politician. “I’ve signed a pledge to author an Amendment that limits the terms of members of congress. I want to help the 2014 Congress gear up and turn this country around, so that regular folks can get back to living the American dream.”

Adam Kwasman is a rising star in the largest geographical district in Arizona, and has the credentials to back up his claims of fiscal conservatism. After earning his B.A. (Cum Laude) from Tulane University, he went on to earn his M.A. in Economics from George Mason University. Before entering the Arizona state House of Representatives, his fight for constitutional liberty began when he worked at the Cato Institute in Constitutional Studies.

Kwasman’s doesn’t mince words. “I’m a Hayekian economist. Either we cut government spending, secure the borders without exception, repeal Obamacare and get the EPA out of our lives, or we lose this country.”

The incumbent, Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, has the opposite view and works tirelessly promote the liberal agenda of amnesty, Obamacare and an increased EPA.

In District 1, two hot topics are the Navajo Generating Station and the Kayenta Mine which create over 1,100 jobs, mostly for Native Americans. The EPA wants to shut them down and/or levy heavy fines which would put them out of business. Instead of standing strong for the NGS, Kirkpatrick seems more interested in clean air than crucial jobs.

Kwasman doesn’t agree and wants the EPA brought under control. “They are about to shut down the Navajo Generating Station, which is completely unacceptable. The EPA is working against the people of the state of Arizona and must be stopped.”
And finally, down in the far southeastern corner of the state comes Chief Master Sergeant (Ret.) Chuck Wooten. Prior to retiring from the USAF, he held the prestigious position of 19th Air Force Command Chief, overseeing the training, morale, and welfare of 14 unit locations and 17,000 subordinate troops. After retirement, he became the V.P. of Federal Business Development for SoxedoUSA, a 20 billion/year global corporation. Today he is the founder/owner of Corona Consulting Corporation and works extensively with contractors engaged in acquisition support directed at the U.S. Government, NATO, and other cabinet-level federal agencies.

When asked why he decided to take on Barber to represent the folks in District 2, Wooten said, “I looked around at the other GOP candidates and didn’t see anyone viable. We’ve got Shelley Kais who’s background is in education and personal training, and Martha McSally who lost twice in this same race.” According to votesmart, McSally refuses to disclose her positions on key issues, making her positions suspect to voters.

“I commend her military service,” says Wooten. “But if she isn’t willing to tell voters where she stands on key issues, how can they make an educated decision at the polls?” According to public records, her mentor and primary financial backer is Senator Jon Kyl. “I don’t like how Kyl voted, and if he’s her mentor, I’m concerned she’ll ignore the root problems and just be another mouthpiece for the RINO contingency.”

“For me, I’m not afraid to say I love God, our constitution and our Judeo-Christian heritage. I’m not afraid to tell voters that we must secure and close the borders – which is a separate and distinct issue from amnesty. We must enforce immigration laws, completely repeal Obamacare, eliminate burdensome government agencies like the EPA, protect our military, and defend life.”

“Let’s face it, we’re in a war in America,” Wooten says. “A war of principals and convictions we cannot avoid. The time is now and either we turn back Obamacare and the economy, and reverse the damage that’s been caused by the liberal agenda, or we accept defeat and allow ourselves to become slaves to socialism.”

These races in Arizona aren’t unique. Take a look around your own community and state – and get involved – today. There’s no time to waste, because come November, if you haven’t gotten involved and helped candidates just like these, we may all be staring down the barrel of ruin. It is an absolute guarantee that if Arizona turns blue, Texas will be next, and then all will be lost.

My money’s on Andrew, Adam and Chuck – our next best hope for a return to a constitutional America.

Adam Kwasman, Ann Kirkpatrick Tied in Congressional Race

Incumbent dangerously below 50% 

Oro Valley – State Representative and congressional candidate Adam Kwasman commissioned McLaughlin and Associates to survey likely general election voters in Arizona’s First Congressional District.  A summary of the results can be seen below.  

TO:           Interested Parties

FROM:     John McLaughlin and Rob Schmidt

RE:          Arizona CD 1 Survey – Key Findings

Date:        December 12, 2013_____________________________________________________________________

Key Findings

1.     State Representative Adam Kwasman is statistically tied with the incumbent, Ann Kirkpatrick, who is dangerously far from the margin needed for re-election. 

Among those most likely to vote, 42% preferred Kwasman and 41% selected Kirkpatrick. Overall, 42.7% of all likely voters chose Kirkpatrick to 40% who preferred Kwasman, a statistical tie, with eleven months remaining in the election.  42.7% is a dangerously low level of support for any incumbent.

2.     Kwasman has nearly unlimited room to grow; Kirkpatrick, with 92.7% name identification, is unlikely to increase her numbers.

Kirkpatrick is nearly universally known after her three races for Congress.  Notably, she has fallen far from the 48% share of the vote she won in 2012.  Kwasman is known by only 23.7% of the voters.

3.     Kirkpatrick’s core support is anemic

After three elections for Congress, only 23.7% of the voters will definitely support Kirkpatrick.

4.     Voters overwhelmingly prefer a Republican check on the president to a Democrat who will hand the president a blank check. 

By a margin of 53.3% to 37.7%, voters selected a Republican member of Congress who would serve as “a check and balance to President Obama” versus a “Democrat who will help President Obama pass his agenda.”  This is unsurprising, in light of the President’s 40.7% – 56.7% job approval/disapproval rating.  Kirkpatrick, who famously said that she would not second guess this President, has positioned herself sharply at odds with her constituents.

The Bottom Line 

Ann Kirkpatrick is in greater jeopardy of losing her seat than previously thought.  Though nearly universally known, her support is far from what is necessary to secure another term.  All of this is predicated on the same turnout model that elected Kirkpatrick in 2012. If Republican turnout increases as a share of the electorate, as it has in previous midterm elections, then the above numbers grow considerably worse for Kirkpatrick.

 

Demographic Breakdown:

PARTY % AGE TOTAL
Republican 36% Under 40 23%
Democrat 39% 41 – 55 21%
Independent/Other 23% 56 – 65 29%
IDEOLOGY % Over 65 26%
Liberal 23% GENDER %
Moderate 27% Male 47%
Conservative 45% Female 53%
RACE % AREA %
White 65% Apache County 10%
Hispanic 21% Phoenix Media Market 71%
Native American 5% Pima County 19%
Other 3% STATE LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT %
OBAMA JOB RATING % Kwasman (LD 11) 32%
Approve 41% Rest of District 68%
Disapprove 57%

*Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding

Methodology: This survey of 300 likely 2014 general election voters in Arizona’s first congressional district was conducted on December 9th and 10th, 2013. All interviews were conducted via telephone by professional interviewers. Interview selection was random within predetermined election units. These units were structured to correlate with actual voter turnout in a general election. This poll of 300 likely 2014 general election voters has an accuracy of +/- 5.7% at a 95% confidence interval.

State Representative Adam Kwasman fights against Obamacare Medicaid Expansion in Arizona

Thank you State Representative Adam Kwasman for standing up to Obamacare and Governor Brewer and for conservative principles and the rule of process in the Arizona Legislature!

Al Melvin, Steve Smith, Adam Kwasman form Conservative Team in Newly Formed LD-11

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 30, 2012

Conservative Team Emerges for GOP in New LD11

~ Smith’s move to the State House paves way for united GOP slate ~ 

Central Arizona – After careful consideration, conservative State Senator Steve Smith announced that he would be running as a candidate for the State House in 2012, thwarting an attempt by the liberal Arizona Redistricting Commission to force him into a primary with fellow conservative State Senator Al Melvin. Smith and Adam Kwasman, a financial consultant, will be candidates for the two House seats while Al Melvin will run for re-election to the State Senate.

In 2010, Smith shocked the political establishment with his stunning victory over longtime incumbent Rebecca Rios, whose family had held the seat for nearly 30 years. He joined Melvin in the State Senate where they worked together to pass a balanced budget free of the gimmicks and borrowing that had plagued Arizona for years. They also worked to pass a Jobs Bills to encourage job growth by cutting state spending and providing needed tax relief for businesses. Their hard work has been rewarded as Arizona is now projected to have a budget surplus of more than $600 Million in 2012.

Kwasman is well known for his role in helping to elect conservative Republicans, and his campaign has already received the support of prominent Republicans like U.S. Congressman Trent Franks, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne.

In discussing their newly formed campaign team Senator Melvin said “Steve and I have worked together very well in the Senate and I think that everyone appreciates him putting the district and the whole Republican Party first. The Redistricting Commission has tried very hard to pit Republican versus Republican and they failed in the new LD11.”

Smith said “In light of the fact that Senator Melvin is now the senior Senator in our new district, I feel that it is my responsibility to do whatever it takes to try and keep both of our conservative voices in the Legislature. I am also looking forward to serving with Adam Kwasman. He is an outstanding conservative candidate and he will make an excellent addition to the State Legislature.”

Kwasman agreed with Melvin’s statement and added “It is a privilege to be on the same team as these two conservative champions. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from the Legislature, the private sector, and the military, and I look forward to working with them to protect the taxpayers, attract more jobs, and keep Arizona’s economic recovery on track.”
