Arizona Citizens Supporting Honest Representative Government At All Levels
RINO State Senator Bob Worsley (R-Mesa) is one of the most hated and the second most liberal Republican in the Arizona Senate, surpassed only by his soul mate, Uber-RINO Kate Brophy-McGee (UR-Phoenix). Last week he announced he wasn't running for re-election which conveniently left the field clear for a totally unknown candidate to run unopposed in the primary and have a virtual lock in the general.
Tyler Pace, nephew-in-law to Governor Doug Ducey's chief of staff, Kirk Adams (didn't know that, did you?), last week for the first time ever faced LD25 precinct committeemen to formally introduce himself, because, well, none of them had ever heard of him. He's never attended a Republican meeting before and he's new to LD25. He told the gathering that he woke up early one morning, tapped his wife on the shoulder (we assume it was his wife) and said he needed to run for office. He was considering running against Andy Biggs for Congress or Worsley for State Senate. He said he told her he didn't think he could win either race but needed to run anyway. Pace decided he would rather lose to Worsley. Sounds more like a liberal Democrat all the time--just waste people's time and money for no good reason.
Well just how lucky can one guy get? No political experience whatsoever but he decides to run against a wealthy, well-entrenched incumbent just for the heck of it. And here's where the conspiracy comes shining through. Worlsey's money scared everyone else away except for Pace. Pace is related to Adams. Worsley has a cozy relationship with Ducey's office and therefore with Adams. Rumors abound that Worsley is expecting an appointment from Ducey. Worsley collected his signatures to qualify for re-election. Pace collected his signatures to qualify to run. After the deadline, Worsley has an epiphany and chooses not to run, clearing the field for Pace, the unknown candidate. Conspiracy? This isn't rocket science, folks.
Remember, this is RINO Worlsey who voted against Grant's Law that would protect citizens against violent, illegal aliens. He adamantly opposes SB1070; strongly supports the expansion of socialism (Medicaid), including funding abortions; favors sanctuary city policies and Obama's Catch and Release program; and joined with the radical LGBT crowd to get Governor Jan Brewer to veto legislation (SB1062) that protected our First Amendment rights of freedom of association and religious liberty. And, oh, yeah, he votes with the Democrats and his soul mate Brophy-McGee on all important ideological votes that matter.
Worsley's latest socialist scheme and end-run around the voters was to sponsor and support an increase in our vehicle license tax (VLT) sidestepping the super majority required by law to raise taxes, giving the governor, through his Director of Transportation, in essence, unlimited authority to raise our VLT. The current amount, $149 Million, is to help pay for the increased teacher pay demanded by the radical socialist movement #Red4Ed.
This doesn't pass the smell test and LD25 voters should be very concerned.
Yours in the Cause of Truth,
What you say if only a small portion would hold water LD25 voters "should be very concerned".
One of the issues of the noticeable in the tactic tool bags of political parties is to drive into campaigns a spoiler candidate.
Most disgusting tactic.
I was Itasca Small's Campaign Manager when she ran her Write-In campaign for State Senate in 2016. I believed then and I believe now that LD25 NEEDS ITASCA SMALL as their new State Senator! She doesn't have to "get up to speed." She's knowledgeable, does her own research, has fought for various issues at the Legislature in the past, and is ready to take her place as LD25's Conservative Senator!
She was very concerned after the LD25 meeting last Thursday. Circumstances (NOT Worsley's money) had precluded her from filing in time to get on the ballot, but I am praying that LD25 voters will get behind her NOW to help her succeed in her Write-In campaign this time! She filed her papers this afternoon to be a Write-In Candidate for State Senate for LD25.
I relocated to Prescott Valley in November 2016, and am therefore out of LD25. We learned a lot last time. It CAN be done! ITASCA SMALL CAN be LD25's next conservative State Senator. She just needs YOUR help, LD25 voters! Do you want someone Worsley approves of, one from the GOP Septic Tank Managers of AZ (per Clair), or do you want a REAL CONSERVATIVE?? My money is on ITASCA SMALL!!

Merrianne, I just sent you a friend request on Facebook.
I just did a cursory look see to begin to inform myself about Itasca Small. The establishment RINOs do protest too much and that is a red flag to me.
We are now friends on Facebook. I hope you will decide to support and help Itasca in her bid for State Senate. Thank you!
Merrianne, I will certainly help with a donation. My monthly $$s are not great. I spread what I can around.
If you can spread the word, help get signatures, whatever you can do will be wonderful.
Itasca Small: Great mind. Great heart. I know this from personal experience, and I support her to the ends of the earth.
Itasca handled our education posts for a while and she was great at it. We will put out anything Itasca needs to be put out. She has our full support. She will be one like they have never seen in the Senate - knowledgeable! Honorable! Incorruptible!
I second that motion wholeheartedly. If we could only have an entire legislature of Itascas, things would not be going the way they are. Itasca is a practical idealist, an innovative and clear thinker, and she has the perseverance to follow through on anything she starts. I respect Itasca very highly.
I just sent a friend request and will support Itasca Small. Will you be sending out info as to where to send donation. I don't live in her district but happy to support her.
Update: The Worsley/Pace Saga!
To fill-in some of the blanks, with Bob Worsley's surprise announcement, we hoped Tyler Pace was a viable Constitutionalist. We quickly learned that the whole event does, indeed, smell fishy. It seems Worsley was ready to move-on when he deceived voters in qualifying for the ballot for what would have been his fourth and last term. Reportedly, he was looking for someone to carry-on his work in the senate, and met with Pace as early as April! Pace was apparently the answer to his search—
Official Write-In Candidate
Thank you All, for your kind comments and support! Thanks to AFA for supporting me with this forum again! I've uploaded a Biography to this comment, including contact information. I will also be updating my Web-site ASAP, and will make sure the information is there, too.
Whatever you can do to aid the campaign will be greatly appreciated! Please, see below for a crucial Call To Action!
As Merrianne reported, I did, indeed, submit my Nomination Papers online, on Thursday. Clair is correct: No signature-gathering for write-in. We move ahead with social media, literature, signs, door knocking and appearances where possible. . . . My first 2018 Campaign Appearance was Thursday night, at the home of Bill & Barbara Blewster!
A big part of running as an Official Write-In Candidate this time is the discoveries we unearthed in 2016; keys to the mystery of why it is so rare for a write-in candidate to win. There are certain rules that conflict with the statutes that are written to give write-ins a fighting chance to prevail. These rules actually impose severe restrictions that suppress voter awareness of write-ins!
CALL TO ACTION!!!
[Please share this Call with your Friends, Family, Acquaintances, and Anyone across Arizona that you think will join us in letting Secretary Reagan know that voters across the State want the Write-In Statutes enforced—To give me and all Write-In Candidates a fair opportunity to compete to win!]
We need Secretary of State Reagan to order insertion of the Write-In Candidates List into the Early Mail-in Ballot envelopes, ASAP!!! [The ballots will be mailed August 1st; statistics prove that a significant majority of the electorate votes early, by mail.]
We need a Grassroots Army to contact Secretary Reagan, immediately, to urge her to enforce the clear intent of the write-in statutes, not the conflicting rules found in her Election Procedures Manual! She must clear the way to:
*I was told on Friday: My timely-filed documents will not be processed until closer to the Write-In Filing Deadline: 7/19! There will be nothing posted for me on the Candidate Web-site until they're processed! Only one person works on them, that person is out of the office, and the office is very busy with Initiative filings they're working-on first!
You could tell Secretary Reagan that when you vote, you will note if she has provided your Write-In List—
We need as many voters as possible to contact her ASAP from all over the State, in united support for Itasca Small, by name, to show her that voters Statewide stand with me in seeking to correct the write-in statute violations. It's her job to enforce the Statutes, not impose rules that violate statutes and ensure many voters will remain blind to legitimate alternative candidates for whom they can vote!
Together, WE can do this!
FOR LIBERTY! Itasca
