AZRTL PAC Announces Endorsement for Attorney General

(PHOENIX, AZ) After a careful analysis of his personal and public commitment to essential pro-life principles, the Arizona Right to Life Political Action Committee announces the following endorsement for Attorney General:

Mark Brnovich

Mark Brnovich has demonstrated to Arizona Right to Life a continual commitment to protect the unborn. AZRTL commends Mark for his recent statement that “we have a moral obligation as a society to protect the vulnerable — whether they are unborn, children or adults.” Mark is facing a pro-choice Republican in the primary and a Planned Parenthood endorsed candidate in the general.

The AZRTL PAC board notes, “Mark upholds core pro-life values and priorities, and not
because they are politically advantageous, but because the life issue is foundational to every basic right and freedom we cherish. Mark understands well that protecting and supporting innocent human life is not a mere political issue, but one that transcends the spectrum of party affiliations, speaking to the very essence of what it means to be a concerned and compassionate citizen of this great state.”

Arizona Right to Life PAC is the oldest, largest and strongest pro-life organization in the State of Arizona.

Hon. Dean Martin Endorses Mark Brnovich for Attorney General

Hon. Dean Martin Endorses Mark Brnovich for Attorney General

Today, Republican candidate for Attorney General Mark Brnovich received the endorsement of the Honorable Dean Martin, former Arizona State Treasurer and State Senator.

“I am delighted to endorse Mark Brnovich for Attorney General,” said Martin. “Mark is the strong, dedicated, honest leader we need to be Arizona’s Top Law Enforcement Officer.” Martin continued, “Conservatives and moderates agree that we need honesty and integrity in our leaders, especially our Attorney General. For too long, Arizona has suffered with a dysfunctional Attorney General mired in scandals and criminal misconduct.  We need Mark Brnovich to clean up this scandal-ridden office and bring honesty and integrity back to this high office.  It is time for a new Attorney General, and I urge others to stand beside me for honest leadership.  I am proud to endorse Mark Brnovich.”

As Senator, Martin was a leader in tax reform, immigration enforcement, and child predator legislation.  Among his signature achievements, Martin authored the landmark “Chris’ Law”, which prevents child predators caught “red-handed” from posting bail and absconding justice. Martin also authored landmark legislation to prevent child predators on parole from moving in near schools.

Martin is familiar with the challenges facing the next Attorney General.  Martin was elected State Treasurer in 2006 to clean up another scandal-ridden office after the previous Treasurer resigned in disgrace.

As Arizona’s Chief Financial Officer, Martin was responsible for the custody and management of state and local monies.  Called “Chicken Little” by then Governor Janet Napolitano for his economic forecasts, time proved Martin right as his warnings were accurate predictions of the “Great Recession” and allowed him to earn taxpayers over $1.2 billion in profits from his investments.  In 2011, Martin returned to the private sector and is currently an active member of the business community as an entrepreneur and multiple business owner.

Mark Brnovich remarked: “It is an honor to have the endorsement of a public servant like Dean Martin. Dean has shown that when you stand by principles and integrity, you can do great things for the people you represent.”

Dean Martin joins U.S. Representative Trent Franks, former State Senator Linda Gray, County Attorney Bill Montgomery, Representatives Debbie Lesko, Paul Boyer, T.J. Shope, Arizona Christian University President Len Munsil, Coolidge Mayor Tom Shope, and national conservative leaders like David McIntosh, in endorsing Mark Brnovich for Arizona Attorney General.

Tom Horne Looks to Settle Latest Political Scandal

Tom Horne Looks to Settle Latest Political Scandal

Disgraced Attorney General Tom Horne’s lawyers have reportedly reached a settlement with a former employee over her claims that she was targeted because of her political beliefs and for tipping off the FBI about his illegal campaign coordination.

Meg Hinchey is a former lead investigator with the attorney general’s office and previously filed a lawsuit against Tom Horne alleging that Horne and his employees engaged in an ongoing campaign to ruin Hinchey’s law enforcement career.

Republican Attorney General candidate Mark Brnovich is calling on Horne to disclose to the taxpayers the details of the settlement before any final deal is signed by the state.

“The public has a right to know what went on inside the attorney general’s office,” Brnovich said. “Did Horne seek retribution against his former employee and now he’s reached a settlement to keep that same employee quiet? Will taxpayer money or a taxpayer-funded insurance account be used to pay this settlement?”

Brnovich added: “Tom Horne is paid to uphold the state’s laws but increasingly finds himself on the other side of the law. We need an attorney general who works with law enforcement, not one who has his personal lawyer on speed dial.”

Horne is also trying to quietly settle a serious campaign finance violation that could cost him and an employee more than $1.2 million in fines.
