Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
Below is a re-print of an article that appeared today in the Republican Briefs. We reprint for a couple of reasons:
1. Republicans can create more problems for themselves than the dems create for them.
2. There are rules about what the state GOP and the Maricopa County party can do but so often, rules are for others.
One of the rules in the Republican party that is long-standing is that until after the Primary, the party does not take sides with one candidate over the other. That rule has been violated by both the AZGOP and the MRC. In both bodies, currently appointed Martha McSally has gotten more consideration publicly and privately than the other candidate, Daniel McCarthy. McCarthy is just as viable a candidate as McSally and is currently waging a highly serious campaign.
We are on the cusp of having two Democrat Senators. The GOP at all levels better stop and think about whether McSally can defeat the democrat in November. The internal polls still say NO. An appointed seat-holder has a whisper of incumbency but it was not conferred by the voters. It's the voters who will decide the outcome.
From Republican Briefs 01/10/20:
US Senate candidate Daniel McCarthy to Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman Rae Chornenky: The actions of the county party inviting a “Temporary Appointed Senator” in Martha McSally to speak is a demonstration of actions that insinuate a party endorsement for her candidacy. This same “temporary appointment” is also a candidate in the special election to fill the vacancy she is currently temporarily filling. Why would she have any more rights than anyone running for this special election with the Republican party. All or none in terms of speaking is the only way to demonstrate a culture of equal and fair treatment.
Currently in the 9th circuit Martha and Doug are defending themselves in an open lawsuit against them about this matter. It is out of oral arguments and awaiting a ruling.
The 17th Amendment: The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures. When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate, the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies: Provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct. This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.
Take time and understand this person just lost a seat because many of the people in that room – our Republican base - did not and will not support her. Let’s make sure we don’t fracture the party more.
Gregory B: Great Job your doing ! Thank you very much. Marsha Hill, you are so right. Dupsy is an empty suit. A puppet of the McCain crime family. You can tell that Arizona Socialist University had its influence. Too bad he and Queen Kelly never examined the constitution. Some basic cliques :
1.The government has no money, it only has your money. (stop giving it to them)
2. The elected are Public Servants, making us their public Masters ! Hmmm.
3. Simple job, DO WHAT YOUR TOLD ! (maybe that is why they duck us and feed us hot air).
4. Provide a monthly activities report (so we know what you are up to).
5. Provide a data base for our input and direction. Stratify the results, and proceed accordingly.
We don’t need you to tickle our ears and feed us bulloney why you couldn’t get it done. If you can’t’ do these simple things, then get the hell out !
Editor's note: The Maricopa County Republican Committee should rescind the invitation for McSally to speak OR add candidate McCarthy to the program. If this were not an election year and if McSally was an elected Senator, we would see things differently.
