    CNN ^ | November 19, 2018 | Devan Cole and John King
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is leveraging his political power to try to convince Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey to choose Rep. Martha McSally to replace Republican Sen. Jon Kyl, who is considering leaving his seat before his term ends, several Republican sources familiar with the conversations tell CNN. McSally, a Republican congresswoman who once worked for Kyl, lost her Senate bid two weeks ago to Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema. Kyl, who was picked by the governor in September to fill the seat vacated by the late Sen. John McCain. told CNN last week he has decided whether to leave office...
  • McSally emerges as potential replacement for Kyl in Senate

    11/14/2018 9:29:48 AM PST · by SMGFan · 39 replies
    For Rep. Martha McSally, there may be another way to get to the Senate: an appointment. A day after the Arizona Republican conceded her Senate campaign to Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the state's other senator, Jon Kyl, told CNN on Tuesday he has decided whether to leave office before his term ends at the end of next year. He wouldn't reveal his decision, but said he will talk to Gov. Doug Ducey about it. He also praised McSally, who once worked on his staff as a national security adviser, when asked about her as a potential replacement if he resigns.

    J.D. Hayworth was a Conservative Arizona Congressman from 1995 to 2007. 60 years old. Trump supporter.He ran against McCain in the Republican primary in 2010 and tried to rid us of that scourge! If Senator Kyl resigns this January, or if he stay on until the 2020 election, J D. Hayworth may be a good replacement.

  • AZ Supreme Court allows OBrewerCare challenge to proceed

    Lobbing a parting shot in Gov. Jan Brewer’s direction as she leaves office, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that state lawmakers have legal standing to challenge the hospital bed tax that is being used to fund a Medicaid eligibility expansion. Read the Supreme Court’s 14-page Opinion here. All of the three dozen legislators are named on page one. At stake in the lawsuit is a critical voter-enacted state constitutional protection that requires two-thirds of the legislature to approve tax or fee increases. Arizona’s Medicaid expansion was funded by a new provider tax on hospitals, and it was not approved...

    Town Hall ^ | Joanne Moudy
    Dirty politics, lies and cover-ups are the liberal, socialist Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) stock in trade, but one hopes for higher standards from the Republican National Committee (RNC). But apparently that’s too much to expect, especially in Arizona. On Saturday, November 8, Arizona’s RNC National Committeeman Bruce Ash got on the airwaves with quasi-conservative radio talk-show host Emil Franzi, and called for violence against those who happened to support the Tea Party candidate, Chuck Wooten, during the primary in the U.S. Congressional race for AZ D-2. Conservative voters in the greater Tucson area knew the RNC’s top pick for the...
  • Lame duck Gov. Jan Brewer seeks vengeance

    08/25/2014 2:24:03 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 11 replies
    Arizona’s Republican governor Jan Brewer is sliding none too gracefully out the door of the ninth floor office she has occupied in the state Executive Tower. That’s the same office she was so warmly welcomed to in January 2009, when Democrat Janet Napolitano took an early hike to sign on with the Obama administration. Republicans greeted the change with jubilation. (SNIP) Jan Brewer, a woman with over three decades of political experience under her belt, has chosen a destructive path as she wraps up her final term. Rather than remaining neutral in statewide and legislative races, or endorsing GOP incumbents,...

    With less than a week until primary election day, the three Republicans in the First Congressional District race are in a dead heat, a new poll shows. The Remington Research Group poll of 420 likely Republican voters has Andy Tobin with 30 percent of the votes, Adam Kwasman with 29 percent, and Gary Kiehne with 21 percent. The remaining 20 percent of voters said they still are undecided.

    Clearly, given the security issues at hand, this is as solid of ground for the impeachment of Barack Obama as the country could ever have. He cannot refuse his obligation to keep the country secure for any reason, LEAST of all for a political one, and not be impeached. Time to get it done. ISIS is going to nuke the U.S. with a dirty bomb they carry across Barack Obama’s open Mexican border. “The problem is, . . . if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’” [Audible gasps were heard...
  • AZ CD1 candidate Gary Kiehne steps in it…again

    05/20/2014 4:03:48 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal
    The Arizona Daily Star reports on an apology issued by Arizona Congressional District 1 candidate Gary Kiehne after remarks he made during a GOP candidate debate. The debate also featured state Rep. Adam Kwasman. Another candidate, Andy Tobin, chose not to appear at the event, which was hosted by the Pinal County Republican Committee. Pinal County Republicans unanimously censured the left-leaning Tobin in 2012, a fact which might have effected his decision to boycott the forum. The Maricopa County Republican Executive Guidance Committee also took the previously unprecedented action against Tobin censuring him by a 23 – 5 vote. Although...

    ATTENTION Precinct Committeemen: Message From Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman A. J. LaFaro: Several people contacted me this week about strangers coming to their homes or phoning them with a series of questions about Sen. John McCain and asking whether they are running for precinct committeeman (PC) again. Some of them are offering to notarize your PC affidavit and take your signature petitions and affidavit to the County Elections Office for you. Please do not give your signature petitions or affidavit to any stranger.
  • More funny (re-branding) business from Jan Brewer

    05/17/2014 5:04:10 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 7 replies
    The latest news from the governor’s office is that Jan Brewer is expected to call the state legislature into a special session to revamp Child Protective Services, the troubled child-welfare agency that shamefully neglected to investigate well over 6,000 reports of child abuse and neglect. Here is her press release on what is rightly termed an “inexcusable situation” and “unconscionable practices.” But in re-crafting the agency, Brewer is doing what she does so well. She’s renaming it. In this press release she announced her Obama-like “Executive Order” craftily renaming Common Core, Obama’s approved federal takeover of America’s education system. Note...

    The incessant and vicious deluge of fetid sludge aimed at Attorney General Tom Horne is in a class by itself. Those who fling this garbage claim to be conservative Republicans. Nothing could be further from the truth. They are carrying a vendetta based on the loss of their candidate in the 2010 campaign, and are engaged in short-sighted and puerile mudslinging aimed at damaging conservative incumbent Tom Horne. In promoting Horne’s marginal challenger they are shortsightedly working toward a General Election victory for the far left Democrat Felecia Rotellini —- sitting on the sidelines smirking, while building her already massive...

    Gubernatorial wannabe Christine Jones has arrogantly claimed (video link) a career as a prosecutor in Compton, California, where she tried drug cases. At a recent press conference, Jones acknowledged to Channel 3 News she was never a prosecutor, but was a ‘certified law student.’ Jones showed reporters an ID badge that identified her as a volunteer law clerk for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office from 1994-1997. Here Christine Jones is outed for what is fittingly called her “Air Farce.”
