  1. Wow, how sad—just kinda proves the old adage that politicians stick together. These all-stars are very quick to forget the candidate’s McAmnesty roots, and to forgive his retreat under pressure when he voted against protecting AZ and US. How sad indeed.

    The crystal clear choice in this race is consistently conservative Jesse Kelly. He has no political mentors to whom he will be beholden, his agenda is protect and preserve America, and he will do what he promises. He is a marvelous contrast to the other candidates.

    McAmnesty is still embarrassing US and sabotaging our security. We don’t need ANY of his protégés following in his beer-sodden footsteps.

    God bless America, and all true conservatives who seek to serve her.
