Doug Ducey has won the Arizona Republican primary race for governor. RINO Scott Smith is in second, with Christine Jones third, Ken Bennett fourth, Andy Thomas fifth and former congressman Frank Riggs sixth.
Mark Brnovich is ending scandal-ridden RINO Tom Horne’s reign as Arizona attorney general.
Diane Douglas ousted incumbent John Huppenthal for Superintendent for Public Instruction. Douglas ran on her opposition to Common Core education, which Huppenthal supported.
RINO Michele Reagan is winning the nomination for secretary of state. She will most likely lose in November to Democrat Terry Goddard.
Jeff DeWitt is heading for victory in the three-man primary race for state treasurer, with RINO Hugh Hallmann in second and former AZ GOP chairman Randy Pullen running third.
Wendy Rogers is leading Andrew Walter by about 5,000 votes in the GOP Congressional District 9 race.
Gary Kiehe is surprisingly leading in the GOP Congressional District 1 in a close race with Adam Kwasman and Andy Tobin.
Several incumbent congressmen ran unopposed.
In the Republican race for Arizona Corporation Commissioner, Tom Forese and Doug Little have secured nominations for November’s general election.
In a huge disappointment, Arizona-bashing Bob Worsley has defeated challenger Dr. Ralph Heap in the State Senate race for District 25.
Additionally, John Giles won handily over conservative Danny Ray in the election for mayor in Mesa. Giles was backed by all the current councilmen — all of whom, incidentally, were identified as “friends” and “champions” of Big Government by Americans for Tax Prosperity.
During the summer campaign, The Arizona Conservative questioned the loyalty of many Republican candidates to GOP principles. Several of those candidates won or did well tonight, raising additional questions about Republican voters, as well. Do personalities and advertising tactics weigh more heavily with Republican voters, or do they observe GOP principle as their criteria for voting decisions? The answer is in, and the GOP platform was a big loser in here in Arizona this summer. And as we said previously, it hasn’t been tried and found wanting. For many of the candidates — particularly Smith, Hallmann, Reagan, Worsley, Horne, and others — it has not been tried. Obviously, conservatives have much to do to educate Republicans in this state, which appears to be drifting away from the conservative principles that made America great.
Arizona’s 2014 primary election season enters its final week today. People must either mail their early ballots today, bring early ballots to the polling place or vote in polling places on August 26. With this urgency in mind, The Arizona Conservative is announcing its Republican In Name Only (RINO) awards today to inform voters of the identity of some of the most liberal, so-called “Republicans,” or RINOs. And now, to the awards we go:
“I’ve Been Takin’ Care of Corporate Welfare Business, Workin’ Overtime” Award: Scott Smith, friend of Big Government, former Mesa mayor, and candidate for governor.
“reagan DEMOCRAT-Moving Arizona Backward” Award: Michele Reagan, former state senator, candidate for secretary of state.
“William J. and Hillary Rodham Clinton Politics of Personal Destruction” Award: Bob Worsley, a friend of big government who called Arizona a “police state,” and called party base Republicans “extremists.”
“Tempe Town Lake Fever” Award: Hugh Hallmann, former mayor of Tempe, candidate for state treasurer; many people get elected to serve in Washington, D.C., and go left after succumbing to “Potomac Fever.” Hallman succumbed to Tempe Town Lake Fever, adopting left-wing politics and daring Republicans to elect him to a state office regardless of his radical politics. Tempe is one of the state’s most left-wing cities, and real Republicans can’t get elected mayor there.
“Jim Kolbe Of Course You Won’t have to Pay for That, the Government Will Pay for it” Award: Doug Coleman, friend of Big Government, no friend of taxpayers, and candidate for the Arizona House of Representatives.
Primary season is in full swing here in Arizona until its conclusion August 26th. Many hotly contested races are already being impacted by early voting. Until now, one very crucial question has evaded all: if President Ronald Reagan were still alive, and if he was a registered voter in Arizona, who would he vote for?
President Reagan personified the very essence of what it means to be a true Republican. If he examined the candidates in the Grand Canyon State, their past performances and what they stand for, how would he fill out his ballot? It’s a burning question that has waited until now to be asked and answered.
President Reagan once said, “The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom.”
President Reagan was one of America’s greatest champions for liberty:
Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.
Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.
The other party exploits the natural division between business and labor. Republicans are trying to bring all our citizens together in a campaign for economic progress.
Here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights. We the people declared that government is created by the people for their own convenience. Government has no power except those voluntarily granted to it by we the people.
I will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose.
President Reagan was the first presidential candidate to adopt a position in support of the value of human life:
I call America–a good nation, a moral people–to charitable but realistic consideration of the terrible cost of abortion on demand. To those who say this violates a woman’s right to control of her own body: Can they deny that now medical evidence confirms the unborn child is a living human being entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Let us unite as a nation and protect the unborn with legislation that would stop all Federal funding for abortion and with a human life amendment making, of course, an exception where the unborn child threatens the life of the mother. Our Judeo-Christian tradition recognizes the right of taking a life in self-defense. But with that one exception, let us look to those others in our land who cry out for children to adopt.
With President Reagan’s values in mind, we have a pretty good idea of how America’s greatest modern era president would have filled out his 2014 Arizona Primary ballot. Here it is:
Governor: Andy Thomas
Secretary of State: Will Cardon
Attorney General: Mark Brnovich
Treasurer: Randy Pullen
Supt. Of Public Instruction: Diane Douglas
State Mining Inspector: Joe Hart
Arizona Corporation Commission: Tom Forese, Vernon Parker
District 1: Adam Kwasman
District 2: Martha McSally or Chuck Wooten
District 3: Gabriela Saucedo Mercer
District 4: Paul Gosar
District 5: Matt Salmon
District 6: David Schweikert
District 7: no one
District 8: Trent Franks
District 9: Wendy Rogers
The late Chester Crandall
If this primary election season demonstrates one thing, it’s the wanton disregard of the Arizona Republican Party brand. Five out of six gubernatorial candidates are far off the Republican Party platform reservation, and so are many, many other so-called “Republican” candidates for public office.
It is not that the Republican brand has been tried and failed. For many, it’s never been tried.
That’s especially true for some of our highest-ranking elected officials, such as U.S. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake and current candidate for governor Scott Smith. What they’re talking about, and the way they legislate, is currently motivated by self interest — in no way consistent with the written word of the Republican brand.
It’s not a recent phenomenon. It stretches back for quite some time.
If you just listen to elected officials and candidates for public office speak, you’d think being being Republican is a 360-degree range, including views from pro-life to pro-abortion, from pro-family to redefinition of the family, from big government to limited government. You quickly hear situational ethics by candidates, promises and yarns spun just to get elected — detached by miles and miles from the GOP national platform.
The 2012 Republican Platform preamble begins as “a statement of who we are and what we believe as a Party and our vision for a stronger and freer America.”
Sen. McCain blazes a John McCain trail unlinked to much of what the GOP platform states. He has spent thousands of dollars to remove platform-aligned Republicans from his pathway. They are an impediment to the arbitrary and unwritten “McCain Platform.” He fights conservatives much harder than he fights radical Democrats, much harder than he fought against Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election. Sen. Flake is his hand-picked puppet, now in the tank for the radical homosexual agenda. Retired Sen. Jon Kyl is his first lieutenant. McCain seldom shows his face at AZ GOP events, but make no mistake he is pulling the strings from behind the curtain, through his surrogates.
Do you hear many Arizona candidates heeding this from the party platform?
This platform affirms that America has always been a place of grand dreams and even grander realities; and so it will be again, if we return government to its proper role, making it smaller and smarter. If we restructure government’s most important domestic programs to avoid their fiscal collapse. If we keep taxation, litigation, and regulation to a minimum. If we celebrate success, entrepreneurship, and innovation. If we lift up the middle class. If we hand over to the next generation a legacy of growth and prosperity, rather than entitlements and indebtedness.
Scott Smith, the entire Mesa City Council, and numerous Republican legislators, like Bob Worsley and Jeff Dial, and numerous city councilmen and women are champions of big government.
State Sen. Michele Reagan is a virtual Planned Parenthood activist and also a friend of the homosexual agenda.
Smith and former Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman are in the tank for the radical homosexual agenda, supporting policies that ensnare Christians trying to freely live out their faith and their consciences. The platform calls for preserving and protecting traditional marriage and family — not undermining it.
It’s clear that Sen. Worsley, McCain, Smith, Hallman and others establish their own personal brand as they go, bending every which way but Republican. It’s just helpful to tack on the Republican identifier to fool some voters at election time.
The GOP platform speaks of reforming government to serve the people. Many Republicans in Arizona are drafting policies to make people serve government. They love spending other people’s money, and they are very, very good at it. For those leaders offended by this admonishment, the platform includes a phrase about “protecting the people’s money.” That means safeguarding the hard-earned dollars of the people you serve, not gulping up their money to dream up non-essential ways to burn through it.
It is not only the elect who stray from GOP branding; it’s many of the citizens, too. Few bond elections, raising your taxes, ever lose. And over-rides extend the taxes that the wise elected so often under-estimated the original costs. It’s time to learn the value of a dollar, the public’s dollar.
Arizona Republicans are too often lacking in principle. Governor Jan Brewer opposed Obamacare at first, then caved in and said let’s grab that money — the taxpayers’ money. The platform talks of repealing Obamacare.
The platform discussed building great schools. Our Republican education superintendent of public instruction, John Huppenthal, abandoned his conservative roots and took us down the road of Big Government Common Core “education” and now claims he didn’t do such a thing. Common Core’s brand is so trashed the name has been changed in Arizona in an attempt to cover its true identity.
The Republican Party says it values the sanctity of human life. Our de facto state Republican leader, Sen. McCain, is in favor of cheapening life to the point of supporting destructive embryonic stem cell research. He speaks the leftist talk of choice.
The platform is conservative to the core, but the political director guiding Doug Ducey, one of those candidates for governor, trashed conservatives. Among the other GOP candidates for governor, Christine Jones praised Hillary Clinton to the hilt, Ken Bennett is pro-life but bashed a bill aimed at strengthening religious freedom, Frank Riggs did the same and his time as a California congressman wasn’t quite as conservative as he wants us to believe. Only Andrew Thomas resonates as a true conservative, despite an outrageous judge taking him down for exposing county corruption during his time as Maricopa County attorney.
Sen. Worsley says he needed to run in 2012 because his district was divided over harsh rhetoric. This from a man calling conservatives “extremists” and “haters” and labeling Arizona “a police state.” That’s hypocrisy at its finest.
As you cast your ballots for the primary election, again in the November general election, and in future elections, the following list of brand violaters should prove helpful:
Sen. John McCain
Sen. Jeff Flake
Gov. Jan Brewer (term limited out)
State Sen. Bob Worsley
State Sen. Steve Pierce
State Rep. Doug Coleman
State Sen. Jeff Dial
State Sen. Michele Reagan (Secretary of State candidate)
State Rep. Heather Carter
State Rep. Frank Pratt
State Rep. T.J. Shope
State Rep. Bob Robson
State Sen. Adam Driggs
State Sen. Steve Pierce
State Rep. Ethan Orr
Congressional Candidate Andy Tobin
Former Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman
Former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith
Arizona Corporation Commission candidate Lucy Mason
Former elected officials/candidates Susan Bitter-Smith, Betsy Bayless, Carol Springer, Carolyn Allen, Randall Gnant, Steve Huffman, Pete Hershberger, Slade Mead (now officially a Democrat for all to see), Steve May, Linda Binder, Sue Gerard, Jane Hull, Fife Symington, Toni Hellon, Mike Hellon, Carol Somers, Jim Kolbe, Kris Mayes, Bill Konopnicki, Neil Giuliano
Gov Candidate Smith Isn’t Pro-Life, Doesn’t Support School Choice, but Does Support Homosexual Agenda
- Former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith is NOT pro-life, he opposes school choice and vouchers, he supports the homosexual agenda’s efforts to add gender identity to anti-discrimination laws. There is a name for such candidates: liberal.
- Smith, Ken Bennett, Doug Ducey, Christine Jones, and Frank Riggs ALL say they support religious freedom! However, all five of them opposed Senate Bill 1062, which … would have protected religious freedom for Arizonans. They must think you voters have not been paying attention.
- The only candidate who supported religious freedom and 1062 is Andrew Thomas. He also supports the sanctity of life, marriage as the union of one man and one woman, border enforcement and school choice. That’s why we are endorsing Andrew Thomas for governor. As mayor of Mesa, Smith and the city council loved spending other people’s money. All of them are friends of big government. Ducey is the McCain establishment candidate, and is now being accused of scamming people through Cold Stone Creamery. He said if he was governor he would veto 1062, and then he bragged he was the first candidate to say that. Ouch!
- Secretary of State candidate Michele Reagan (RINO) is in favor of abortion, Big Gambling, Planned Parenthood-style sex education, and the homosexual agenda plan to add gender identity to anti-discrimination laws. She also opposes religious freedom.
- Hugh Hallman answered only two CAP voter guide categories, two that are guaranteed to attract left-wing voters. He supports domestic partner benefits and Common Core education! This is how a “Republican” gets elected mayor in liberalville Tempe!

Tempe–475: Non-discrimination ordinance to include sexual orientation and gender identity
NO: This proposition is not in the best interests of individuals who are struggling with same-sex attraction and who are confused about their gender. Furthermore, these non-discrimination bills, fronted by leftists seeking to destroy traditional marriage and family structure, are cited by activist judges to over-rule the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech and the free exercise of religion. For these reasons, VOTE NO.

I was recently invited for coffee by a close friend and fellow Republican to discuss upcoming state legislative races. Well respected in both local grass roots circles as well as the so called “GOP Establishment,” he was chosen to reach out to me in hopes of convincing me to not get involved in several key legislative primaries. However, by the time we finished our second cup of coffee, he would not only fail to convince me to stay silent, but he would instead volunteer to help me in my efforts to inform GOP voters of the threat to our state. It took a simple history lesson to change his mind.
I take you back to the 46th Legislature. In 2004, a handful of so called “pragmatic” Republicans conspired with Democrats to give then Governor Janet Napolitano a budget that would increase state spending by more than $700 million, a 10% increase in spending in a year that saw little inflation (2%).
Worse yet, that budget created a $500 million budget deficit; in violation of Arizona’s Constitution which requires a balanced budget. Rightfully, fiscal conservatives were outraged at what was clearly an irresponsible budget. In response, conservatives recruited fiscally responsible primary opponents to challenge these fiscally irresponsible Republicans.
Then the “GOP Establishment” stepped in. They argued that we risked losing our legislative majorities by running more conservative candidates in the general. Even going as far as saying that even though these “pragmatic” Republicans may have strayed a bit and voted with Democrats for the big spending budget, at least they voted right on things like guns, faith and family issues. They used the old rationale of “even the worst Republican is better than the best Democrat any day.” Generally I would agree with that statement, however, it only holds true if those Republicans support the Republican platform and not the Democrat platform. In 2004, there were 39 Republicans in the House and 17 in the Senate. (In Arizona, you need only control 31 seats in the House and 16 in the Senate to maintain your majority.)
Many of the party faithful bought the establishment’s argument, held their noses and voted for the fiscally irresponsible Republicans “for the good of the Party.” Deep down they hoped these “pragmatic” Republicans would realize the error of their ways and act “more Republican” and fiscally responsible if they got re-elected. As a result, the fiscally conservative challengers were defeated and the “GOP Establishment” candidates got re-elected.
What did voting for the establishment candidate get us? Over the next few years, more and more spending occurred and the budget deficit got bigger, ballooning to over $2.2 billion. Well at least it helped us keep our majorities in the legislature right? Not exactly, in the House the GOP lost six seats and our majority declined to 33 seats; dangerously close to the 31 needed to maintain majority control.
Then in 2008, “Pragmatic Republicans” did it again. Cutting a backroom deal in the dark of night with legislative Democrats and Governor Napolitano, four House and four Senate Republicans essentially voted to put Arizona on the verge of Bankruptcy. They left the State with no money in the Rainy Day Fund and a $3 Billion budget deficit. This time conservatives had enough.
A grassroots groundswell of conservative candidates filed to run for the legislature and challenge the big spenders of both parties. Once again the “GOP Establishment” clamored about “party unity, we’re going to lose our majority if we elect conservatives in the primary, think of the big picture and don’t get hung up on a single budget vote, etc.” This time, despite the GOP establishment spending heavily on their “pragmatic” candidates, the GOP primary voters weren’t going to listen.
Fiscal conservatives won primary after primary, soundly defeating establishment candidates in several key races. Instead of lining up behind the party’s nominees, the GOP establishment instead sided with Democrats by undermining conservative candidates in the general election. Establishment lackey and so called “political consultant” Nathan Sproul even penned an open letter to voters stating “In my opinion, the Republican Nominees are not reflective of the overall electorate.” His statement was quickly picked up by Democrats and used in mailers against conservatives.
Despite the “GOP Establishment’s” efforts to torpedo our candidates, we not only kept our majorities in the State House and Senate, but increased them! Keep in mind this was 2008, the year Barack Obama was elected President. Conventional political wisdom predicted a Democrat landslide nationally and the Tea Party was still more than a year from even coming into existence. Arizona was one of only two states in the whole country that saw Republicans add seats to their legislatures. The GOP Establishment was not only WRONG, they were DEAD WRONG.
Then came 2010; “the year of the Tea Party.” Both Establishment GOP candidates as well as Democrats were steam rolled by conservatives. Republicans obtained “Super majorities” in both houses of the legislature and it immediately led to a balanced budget in Arizona, the first in over five years.
Now we’re back to 2014 and here we go again. A new bunch of so-called “Pragmatic Republicans” have again voted with state Democrats to bring Obamacare to Arizona and once again bust the state’s bank by voting for fiscally irresponsible budgets. Where there was once $1Billion in the Rainy Day fund, now there’s essentially nothing. The budget is once again structurally unbalanced and we’re looking at huge deficits again in 2016 and 2017.
So guess what the “Establishment” is saying. Yep, you guessed it: “Don’t primary them, they only voted ‘wrong’ on Obamacare and the budget, but otherwise, they’re still better than Democrats. Don’t primary them for the ‘good of the party’ and so we don’t lose our majorities.”
Well I for one am not buying it. I’m not going to let history repeat itself. These turncoat Republicans, also known as “Legistraitors,” are causing irreparable damage to our states’ fiscal and economic future and they must go. We can’t let the financial disaster of 2004-2008 happen again. Reelecting these “pragmatic” traitors to the platform will spell fiscal disaster for Arizona. Ask yourself, do you want to go through what we had to go through back in 2009-2011? Huge budget cuts, a sales tax increase, selling our Capitol? Heck no!
