The Math is not on McSally and Schweikert’s side.


Last month (June 2019) Congressional District Six Representative David Schweikert commented that the Mathematical odds on his reelection prospects are on his side.

That may be wishful thinking on his part.

The release of the second quarter campaign contributions reports from the candidates running for office show that the math, as of now, is not on Schweikert or Senator Martha McSally’s side.

Yellow Sheet 7-16-19 (1)


The numbers show that all three Congressional Six Candidates (Anita Malik, Stephanie Rimmer, and Dr. Hiral Tipirneni) combined have outraised Mr. Schweikert in the second quarter. Dr. Tipirneni alone raised more than Schweikert.

So much for the math being on his side.

In the United States Senate Race, Captain Mark Kelly outraised Senator Martha McSally.

This is a golden opportunity for Democrats, as long as they run on a center-left inclusive pragmatic progressive program, to pick up two Republican-held seats and make Arizona increasingly blueish.

Hopefully, Democrats can continue the positive momentum.

  1. David Schweikert has always respected the Arizona tax payer and upheld Arizonan values. He has my vote!

    • Fred Silva seems to be a bot or troll. Fred posts a campaign slogan, Fred did not comment on the article.

      Fred, Jack, and Jon all seem to be bots or trolls.

      In other times I would say it’s Koch money funding them, but these days it could be Russian, Saudi, Bannon or Parscale. Whatever country Rudy Giuliani just got back from…

      I’m pretty sure there’s a comment by Fred on some other blog where Fred says “McSally has always respected the Arizona tax payer and upheld Arizonan values. She has my vote!”

      And so on all across the country for GOP candidates who support Trump.

      Since Trump and the GOP have done nothing to fight foreign influence, I’m curious to see what China will be up to. Maybe trolling for Dems if they feel Trump is bad for them, maybe not if they think Trump is easier to manipulate than whoever the Dem nominee turns out to be.

      The 2020 election is going to be ugly and I’m not sure the Internet was such a good idea after all.

  2. David Schweikert is best for Arizona and the US, I believe the voters will see that when election time comes. The economy’s doing well and Schweikert has an incumbency advantage.

    • Posting under different names, Jon and Jack, on different articles on the same day is a little obvious, sport.

      Nice try, comrade.

  3. eh, of the economy holds, it is gonna be tough for the Dems to out these incumbents, no matter how much outside money comes into their coffers
