All four of the following judges were appointed by former Governor Janet Napolitano, a hard-Left ideologue. Anyone appointed by a radical leftist is much more apt to consider Constitutions as “living documents” and far less likely to rule from a point of originalism. Therefore, we recommend NO votes against the following judges and justices in the November election.
Scott Bales, Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court
Diane Johnsen, Judge Of The Court Of Appeals, Division I (Maricopa County)
Patricia Orozco, Judge Of The Court Of Appeals, Division I (Apache, Coconino, La Paz, Mohave, Navajo, Yavapai, Yuma counties)
Garye Vasquez, Judge Of The Court Of Appeals, Division II (Cochise, Gila, Graham, Greenlee, Pinal, Santa Cruz counties)
Arizona Parents can ‘Thank’ Kyrsten Sinema for Loss of Their Children’s Health Insurance Due to Obamacare
Wendy Rogers has released the following statement criticizing Kyrsten Sinema’s, the far left candidate for Congress, record on Obamacare:
“Kyrsten Sinema has been a longtime advocate of universal healthcare. She readily admits having authored parts of Obamacare. She routinely misled the people of Arizona by parroting the Obama administration’s talking points, to include the lie ‘if you like your doctor (or insurance plan), you can keep it.’ In 2009 before the vote on Obamacare, as a cheerleader for the Obama administration, Sinema perpetuated this lie to countless audiences while barnstorming across Arizona. Since then, however, thousands of Arizonans are suffering from the lie since they’ve now lost their insurance or their doctors from before the law was passed,” said Rogers.
“In a recent interview with The Arizona Republic, Robert Meyer, the CEO of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, said that 20 children are coming to his facility every day only to find that Phoenix Children’s Hospital is NOT covered by their insurance because of Obamacare. Previously, they may have had coverage which included Phoenix Children’s Hospital, but since Obamacare brought about the creation of ‘narrow network’ plans, now their choices are drastically reduced to only a select few facilities. Parents are left with a stark choice – either take their loved one somewhere unfamiliar or try to argue with their insurance company to receive out-of-network coverage for their sick child, something which Meyer notes ‘causes tremendous anxiety for the parents and families that are going through major crisis.’”
“Despite these terrible flaws, Kyrsten Sinema refuses to back down. Regardless, she voted against the repeal of Obamacare saying ‘the fundamentals of [the program] are good,’ . . . in the face of all the contrary evidence. At the very least, Kyrsten Sinema should go on record to say she was wrong for supporting Obamacare and spreading the Obama administration’s lie to Arizonans. Obamacare hurts families. I’m a mother – – it pains me deeply to see bad government policy continue to hurt children. Obamacare is wrong for our nation, and Kyrsten Sinema should be ashamed for supporting it.”
The Arizona Conservative is endorsing candidates for public office in the Grand Canyon State in advance of the November 4 general elections. Voters have two choices: candidates who will champion FREEDOM for the individual and those who will push policies that deny and reduce personal freedoms – the candidates of socialism and excessive government CONTROL of your life. Whom do you want in office? Those who will protect your constitutional freedom, or those who would expand government and take away more and more of your freedom, controlling more and more of your life? Your vote will impact every facet of American society and culture. Please make informed and intelligent decisions. Vote on values and principle, not on personalities and negative advertising. Compare what candidates actually say and how they have legislated previously; if you do this, you will find that many candidates from the party of CONTROL will not be as truthful.

Republican Party leaders just met in Flagstaff and elect Navajo County Supervisor Sylvia Tenney Allen as their nominee to run for the Senate seat vacated by the late Chester Crandell.
Senator Crandall ran unopposed for re-election to his Arizona Senate seat, but died in a horse riding accident recently.
Allen is a past Arizona legislator with sterling conservative credentials who has served Arizona well in the past. And she’ll do so again. We expect her to win the November election and urge voters to give her the victory.

It didn’t take long to become clear Doug Ducey had won the Republican nomination for governor. Following are some of the points he made in his victory speech, flanked by his family and Governor Jan Brewer:
Our schools must do better, without more meddling from the federal government. We will pursue commonsense education instead of Common Core education. Focus on solid teaching, local control and more input from parents so every student reaches their educational dreams
This campaign is for you if you’re for job creation.
I will reach out to all the people.
I will earn the vote by showing the best that is in Arizona
I am thankful for my faith and my family. The best thing I have going for me is my wife Angela Ducey. We couldn’t be more proud of our three sons, Jack, Joe, and Sam.
When the going gets rough it’s great to have the help of Jon Kyl, John Shadegg, Cong. Trent Franks, Bill Montgomery (Maricopa County Attorney), (former Gov.) Jane Dee Hull, Leah Marquez Peterson, (former Gov.) Fife Symington, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. I’ve gotten a lot of advice from them.
I learned to respect the strengths of each of my opponents. I applaud their commitment, as all of us should, to public service.
I want every Republican to know we need you in this campaign.
We will make our state a more just, compassionate and welcoming place.
He said tonight is an especially great day for ice cream. Surely Fred DuVal will jump all over that.
He thanked Gov. Brewer for her leadership and wants to stand on the shoulders of her legacy.
We set out to give a great effort. To run with a full heart and press on to the finish.
I’ll work hard as your nominee and together we will win the election for governor.
It was a clean sweep for (Democrat opponent) Fred DuVal. I want to congratulate Fred on his big win. We now know that this guy is unstoppable — if he doesn’t have an opponent. (The Arizona Democrats selected DuVal more than a year ago to be their candidate without allowing any opposition in the primary.)
I’m seeking support from Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and Liberatians.
It comes down to one thing: Arizona should be a place of opportunity for all.
We will find a better way (than Obamacare) to protect the health care and freedom for people of Arizona.
We will practice spending discipline. The default position of the status quo and special interests is always to raise taxes; we’ll stand up again for the taxpayers of Arizona.
I have a very clear agenda: kickstart the economy, reform education and get out from underneath the thumb of our federal government.
Now I will make my case to all the voters of Arizona.
The next 10 weeks ahead will be filled with hard work and vigorous debate.
Every day I will state my convictions and respect those of others
I will earn the vote by showing the best of Arizona.
Thank you and God bless Arizona.
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.
