Update From Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham

Legislative Salute Success!



We wrapped up last week with our Legislative Salute and were honored to have so many of our Republican legislators and supporters attend, but also to hear Senator Jon Kyl address the crowd with his wisdom, humor, and enthusiasm about the upcoming elections. We are extraordinarily thankful for our GOP-majority Legislature, and we raised more than $200,000 to help our efforts for Republican victories in 2014.


GOP = Great Opportunity Party

Out with the old, and in with the bold. 2014 is going to be celebrated as the Year of Opportunity, when voters in November express their dismay at the failings of the Obama Administration and vote for the Great Opportunity Party. We’ve seen Obama’s approval ratings tank, the Obamacare implementation implode, and Harry Reid’s ridiculous tactics in the Senate get blasted by his colleagues. The GOP is turning our potential into power by turning out voters to support our candidates, and we are excited as can be for November!


How to Lie with Statistics: Quote Obama Administration

Yesterday the unemployment numbers for April were released and things are worse than the Obama Administration will admit. Special thanks to Frank Luntz, who was our speaker for last year’s Legislative Salute, for pointing out this fact and tweeting this “infographic” at right. The jobs report here notes people are not counted as unemployed if they quit looking for a job, and that means there are still millions of Americans that need jobs and can’t find them. Time for the GOP!


Start at the Beginning: The Origination Clause

Congressman Trent Franks this week used his membership on the House Judiciary Committee to drive home this taxpayer-friendly point: “…the Origination Clause, was designed by the Constitution’s framers to bring the power to tax closer to the people by giving control over initiating revenue legislation to their immediate representatives: Members of the House of Representatives, who are elected every two years.” Full video of his remarks and the committee hearing here.


Judgment Day: November 4, 2014

It’s often pointed out the Ron Barber, the liberal Democrat representing Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District, seems to be uncomfortable with the truth. He’s also apparently uncomfortable paying his female staff as much as the men. The NRCC calls him “a Disingenuous Hypocrite” but read here to see the full extent of his excuses
