The Arizona Conservative has just withdrawn its endorsement of Republican Mark Brnovich, candidate for Arizona attorney general. Brnovich just issued a statement in support of judicial activism and same-sex “marriage”:
“Today’s court order and recent rulings that preceded it have voided Arizona’s voter-approved definition of marriage. State and local officials now have an obligation to put aside politics and personal feelings and uphold the law in accordance with the court’s decision.”
This is clearly NOT the type of attorney general we need. Instead of capitulating to radical leftists who did an end-run around the people — and 1.2 million voters who enacted marriage as one man and one woman — Brnovich has shown that if elected AG he will not fight the radical Left, but will instead roll over and go along with the radicals.
Arizona deserves better. We need an attorney general who will fight the same radical interests which have captured the Democratic Party. Once again, we see another Republican candidate more intent on corralling Democrat votes than party base Republicans.
Furthermore, the state and local officials Brnovich urges to set personal feelings aside have been thrown to the wind. Among those public officials are Christians who believe same-sex “marriage” is sin and who have First Amendment protection against having to issue wedding licenses and perform same-sex “weddings.” State officials need to recognize and protect religious freedom and the Constitution — now more than ever after today’s stunning judicial activism by Judge Sedwick.
We regret having endorsed Brnovich and strongly repudiate his capitulation to the Far Left and activist Judge Sedwick. We need an attorney general who will fight for justice.
