Chad Roche Responds to Baseless Accusations of Opponent

Repeated unsubstantiated allegations have been printed about me over the last few months. While I’ve ignored blatant lies, I’d like to clear the air a bit. My staff, many of whom support me, have volunteered their time off-the-clock but Arizona Supreme Court Rule 123(e)(1) states that employee payroll records are closed; after consulting with my attorneys, it was made clear that my office is prohibited from releasing them.

I’ve also been accused of violating campaign finance laws by buying signs and collecting signatures prior to organizing my campaign this year. Arizona state law (ARS 16-901) states that if a candidate spends our intends to spend less than $250 they do not need to organize a campaign or file anything. Prior to the end of March, I didn’t spend or intend to spend more than $250 because I didn’t have an opponent; I printed my petitions at home. As for the signs, prior to ordering my new signs on June 25, 2014 I used my campaign signs from 2010 (you can see them in the attached picture). Just for full transparency I’ve also attached a screenshot showing my purchase from Sav-on-Signs in Tucson for the re-election signs.

During a campaign, a challenger with no record, no experience, and no voting history can say anything they want to mislead the public.

I’m the ONLY life-long pro-life REPUBLICAN running for Clerk of the Superior Court and I ask for your vote! If you’ve got any questions about the completely false and unsubstantiated allegations being spread around about me.

Pinal County Clerk of the Superior Court Chad Roche Endorses Tobin

“There’s no other candidate in this race with a conservative track record like Andy Tobin.”

Leading up to the SaddleBrooke Republican CD-01 forum today, Pinal County endorsements continue to flood in for Andy. Pinal County Clerk of the Superior Court, Chad Roche, is the latest Pinal County supporter for Tobin’s campaign.

“There’s no other candidate in this race with a conservative track record like Andy Tobin,” said Pinal County Clerk of the Superior Court Chad Roche. “There’s probably not another candidate in the country with conservative credentials matching Tobin’s. He fought against ObamaCare in Arizona harder than anyone else in the state. He shrunk Arizona’s government more than anyone else in state history. He has stood up for the unborn, 2nd Amendment freedoms and school choice. He knows what it’s like to be a small business owner and family man. I know he’ll faithfully represent rural Arizona in Washington. It is for these reasons that I am endorsing Andy Tobin for United States Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”

“Chad knows that to take back Washington, Arizona’s 1st Congressional District needs an experienced, proven conservative that will vote the heart of this district,” said Tobin. “I thank Chad for believing in and supporting me as we fight for Arizona’s conservative values. I look forward to taking the solutions we have implemented here in Arizona to Washington.”
