Posted onOctober 16, 2018byArizona's Politics|Comments Off on SHOCKING, UNCOVERED Video Of McSally Calling On Herself/Others To “Look Within Our Hearts…Make Sure We’re Not Facilitators Or Bystanders” Fomenting Political Violence
Yes, Martha McSally is passionate when she speaks. The Republican Congresswoman’s passion came through in last night’s debate with fellow Rep. Kyrsten Sinema to help voters decide which should be Arizona’s next Senator. In the most memorable exchange – during and after the debate – McSally accused Sinema of committing treason against the United States.
However, it was 16 months ago this week that McSally (R-CD9) was just as passionately imploring herself and fellow elected officials (including the President) to “look within our hearts” to ensure that “we each need to do our part to ratchet this down.”
Debbie Lesko has always been a few bricks short of a full load. She gets elected only because she has run from a “safe” Republican voter registration district where GOP tribalism means voters would vote for a cardboard cutout of a cartoon character if it had an “R” behind its name on the ballot.
This is why we cannot have nice things in Arizona.
Apparently the candidate interviews with the editorial board of The Arizona Republic did not go well for Debbie Lesko. Her opponent, Dr. Hiral Tipirneni, stood head and shoulders above her.
The difference between the two is, in fact, startling – from their outlook on who they represent to their work histories. (Tipirneni spent 10 years as an emergency room doctor, Lesko spent nine years as a state legislator).
One of them has actual ideas to fix some of our most vexing issues and the other? Not. A. Clue.
LD9 Reps. Pamela Powers Hannley and Dr. Randy Friese with former representative and current Senate candidate Victoria Steele.
The three Democrats and two Republicans running for seats in Legislative District 9 will participate in a Clean Elections Debate on Tuesday, October 16, beginning at 6 p.m. at Pima College Northwest.
Running for the Arizona House are incumbent Reps. Randy Friese and Pamela Powers Hannley and Republican challenger Ana Henderson, who lost to the two Democrats in 2016. On the Senate side, Democrat and former House Rep. Victoria Steele and political newcomer Republican Randy Fleenor are vying for the seat vacated by Senator Steve Farley.
Come with your questions. Since this debate is being run by the Citizens Clean Elections Commission (CCEC), at least half of the questions come from the audience.
If you listen to Rep. Martha McSally tell her story, she would have you believe that she is the only woman who has ever accomplished “firsts” in serving her country in the U.S. Armed Forces running for Congress. She holds a mighty high opinion of herself. Just ask her.
The theory that the 2016 election might inspire women to run for all levels of political office proved true within moments of the presidential inauguration, when hundreds of women signed up for seminars on running successful campaigns. Now, less than a month before the 2018 midterm elections on November 6, women hold a record number of spots on ballots across the country.
Among the women inspired to run are eight whose work for the country started years ago, just in another form. In a new campaign video, debuting exclusively on Cosmopolitan.com, eight women who served in the U.S. Navy, Marines Corps, Air Force, and CIA–Abigail Spanberger and Elaine Luria from Virginia, Chrissy Houlahan from Pennsylvania, Gina Ortiz Jones and MJ Hegar from Texas, Amy McGrath from Kentucky, Mikie Sherrill from New Jersey, and Elissa Slotkin from Michigan–speak about how their service inspired them to run for office this year.
January Contreras, the Democratic candidate for Arizona Attorney General, is in New York tonight for a high dollar fundraiser headlined by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Contreras is one of four candidates being supported by the DAGA fundraiser, reportedly because she Democrats believe that current AG Mark Brnovich is vulnerable.
The ticket levels range from $1,000 to $25,000 for the event, and it presumably means that the Democratic Attorneys General Association will spend some money in Arizona in the closing weeks of the campaign.
A spokesperson for the Republican Attorneys General Association taunted Clinton, Contreras and the Democrats, suggesting that Contreras should ask the former Presidential candidate (etc) to campaign for her in Arizona.
DAGA and RAGA filed their 3rd quarter reports with the IRS yesterday, and the much better-funded GOP organization is greatly outspending their Democratic counterparts, $7.4M to $1.8M. (Arizona-based contributions to RAGA are well in six figures, while DAGA received a total $450 from two individuals. APS parent company Pinnacle West contributed another $100,000 to RAGA.)
