Posted on 01/14/2010 12:43:53 PM PST by MestaMachine

ALASKA ELECTION CENTRAL

If we are going to make a difference in the upcoming election, we need to KNOW the candidates. Please post the names of ALL your Congressional candidates on this thread along with any and all information available.

We need names, positions, platforms, news articles, statements, pictures. We need to separate the RINOS from the Conservatives, and most of all, we need to get the liberals of either party OUT!

We can do this if you help. I have started this thread. All you have to do is contribute a little time and a little research. Help us help this country, and between us, we WILL take our country back!

Let's Do It!!!

Keep an eye on Jesse Kelly, who hopes to unseat Gabrielle Giffords in CD-8. He’s a former Marine with SWA experience who knows what’s needed in the US Congress.

His values are conservative and I believe he has what it takes to win against Gabby.

State Treasurer, Dean Martin (Republican) wants to run for governor.

http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/local/articles/2010/01/14/20100114martin0114.html

I’m gonna find out more about him.

HiJinx...what’s your take on him as opposed to Jan Brewer?

I don’t have any experience with Dean other than what I’ve read...he was trying to tell Napolitano and others that this was coming 2-3 years ago.

I think Jan Brewer is straying from principles to resolve problems now.

Dean Martin is a great guy and we’d be lucky to have him. He’s as fiscally conservative as you can get and has been screaming from the mountaintops about what’s going on in this State.

He will be speaking at our Lincoln Day Dinner in Bullhead City on Feb. 6th. If you’re around this area, you should come.

I’ve been reading about him and have come to the same conclusion as you.

We were planning a trip to Laughlin (close enough to Bullhead) but not until Feb. 10. Will see if we can make it sooner.

From the article I posted in post #10:

“Brewer campaign spokesman Doug Cole welcomed Martin to the race for the Republican nomination, which also includes former Board of Regents President John Munger, Paradise Valley Mayor Vernon Parker and National Rifle Association board member Owen “Buz” Mills.”

Martin is a Republican.

No, he doesn’t.

From the article in post #10:

“The first-term treasurer reiterated his opposition to a sales-tax increase, which has been Brewer’s favored method of reducing the state budget shortfall.”

I don’t think I’ve ever heard about him being called a democrat but he’s definitely a conservative.

Maybe the news stations do it because that’s what was written out for them to say??

Brewer wants to have the people vote on a tax increase. As things go, that’s not so bad. Why she’s staked her entire career on it is beyond me, though.

Carolyn, I’ve met Dean and he’s a great guy and a true, true Conservative. We’d be so lucky to have him at this time.

Just a little side note, Dean suffered an incredible tragedy last year...his wife died during childbirth and the baby died a few days later. It was horrible. But he dove back into work. He’s an incredible man.

Usually at the Avi Casino and Hotel. Yeah, I know it’s not really Laughlin but we like it there. Only thing is there’s not that good a view of the river.

Always enjoy their $.99 ham and egg breakfast...only with the club card, of course!

McCain wins big at Maricopa County GOP annual conclave
January 16, 2010

…as least acceptable candidate for U.S. Senate seat from Arizona.

Out of 228 ballots cast at the January 16, 2010 mandatory meeting of elected precinct committeemen, the results of the unofficial straw poll for the U.S. Senate seat were as follows:

Least Acceptable Candidate for U.S. Senate:

Sen. John McCain: 183 votes — 82.4%

Former Congressman J.D. Hayworth: 13 votes — 5.9%

First Choice for U.S. Senate:

Former Congressman J.D. Hayworth: 156 votes — 68.7%

Sen. John McCain: 24 votes — 10.6%

Jim Deakin: 35 votes — 15.4%

Chris Simcox: 12 votes — 5.3%

The conservative slate for members-at-large won overwhelmingly, besting the McCain cohorts.

(Scroll down for the 11 by-law changes, 11 resolutions.)

See the entire vote for U.S. Senate, Arizona Governor, Attorney General, and survey questions concerning the roles of the party elected officials and Arizona’s grassroots party workers, the precinct committeemen.

In the vote for governor, it would appear there is a disconnect between Gov. Jan Brewer and the party loyalists on the issue of taxation as part of the solution for Arizona’s budget crisis. However, she was given a warm welcome and her speech — which did not mention taxes – was well-received.

Brewer was forthright in laying blame for much of the economic calamity at the feet of former Gov. Janet Napolitano, saying she and her team conducted business for the state of Arizona exactly the same as she’s handling Homeland Security. Brewer reiterated her commitment to halting illegal immigration, spoke of her Second Amendment credentials and reminded the crowd of the pro-life legislation she signed.

In total, there were 1699 elected precinct committeemen represented at the Saturday meeting – 1163 in person and 536 by proxy.

To my fellow Freepers. Saturday I attended my third meeting held by Brian Miller in Sunsites.
Brian Miller is running for the 8th Congressional Dist. AZ. Brian is running on a strict conservative platform and is not seeking or accepting any special interest money. All of the finances for his campaign comes $5.00 to $10.00 at a time from the people who agree with his platform. I have not read anything about him in the newspapers (you can guess why). Brian was at the Tea Parties in D.C and Tucson. Brian also knows about Free Republic and appreciates what we do. I have decided to support Brian Miller. If you are in Dist. 8 I can only ask you to look at his web page.

Thank you. Vernon Parker was at the LD 26 meeting in December; Johm Munger was our guest speaker this month, and I was contacted by the Martin campaign for our February meeting.

They are all very impressive, intelligent, and conservative.

The Sierra Vista Herald reported over the weekend that AZ State Senator Jonathan Paton has thrown his hat in the ring to run against Gabby Giffords for the AZ CD-8 seat. That puts 4 people in the running in the Republican Primary for that seat.

Paton is from the Tucson area and is an Army reservist with at least one tour in SouthWest Asia.

Hippy - does Brian Miller have military experience? It seems to me that he does, but I don’t remember everything from the Tea Party Rally I attended here in Sierra Vista last summer...

Brian Miller is a Major and senior pilot in the United States Air Force Reserve, 45th Fighter Squadron at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

In June 2009, he transitioned from active duty to the USAF Reserve to focus on representing the people of Arizona’s 8th Congressional District.

As a combat veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, he has provided Close Air Support and rescue escort to Joint American Forces and Coalition troops on the ground in Afghanistan.

As an A-10 Instructor Pilot and Flight Commander, Brian has been and continues to be responsible for the lives, skills, and success of hundreds of combat pilots. He has been a proud member of six Fighter Squadrons in his career. He currently leads and instructs new A-10 pilots.

Brian has lived, worked, studied, and trained in more than two dozen countries around the world. His extensive international experience has provided him a global view and is fundamental to the perspective Brian will take to the U.S. Congress.

Heard J.D. on KYFI (Barry Young’s show) yesterday say that he’ll probably have an announcement in 30 days!

Lawyers have prevented him from talking about McCain on his own show...which is why he went on Barry’s show!

Reading between the lines, I get the feeling he’s going to run!!

One comment he had was priceless in reference to McCain. I’m paraphrasing...*you can’t just be a senator FROM Arizona, you have to be a senator FOR Arizona.*

We HAVE TO *retire* McCain!!! For the good of the country and so we can have a senator FOR ARIZONA!!
