September 18: Candidate for Maricopa County Recorder, Stephen Richer, to Provide Details on the November 2018 Election Irregularities Under Democrat County Recorder Adrian Fontes

Stephen Richer

Following the November 2018 election in Arizona and all the shenanigans surrounding it (specifically in Maricopa County), both before and after the election (remember the ballot counts that when on and on and on?), the Arizona Republican Party asked Stephen Richer to conduct an independent review of the County Recorder’s Office. Stephen did as he was asked. And he did it at no cost to the Arizona Republican Party. Join us on September 18 to find out the results of Stephen’s discovery—problems, concerns and irregularities so troubling that Stephen is now running to become the next Maricopa County Recorder.

About Stephen Richer: Stephen is a lawyer at one of Arizona’s oldest large law firms, Lewis, Roca, Rothgerber, Christie. Previously, Stephen worked for the American Enterprise Institute and the Cato Institute, which introduced him to some of the top conservative and libertarian thinkers in the world.  Stephen holds three degrees, including a law degree from The University of Chicago Law School, and he won a number of awards while in school including USA Today All-Academic Team, Phi Beta Kappa, and National Merit Scholar Finalist.

We hope to see you there!

Governor Ducey Stands Up to the Anti-American Bullies

For those of you who might have missed it, today Governor Ducey took a stand against anti-American bullies and said “hell no” to Nike.

Well done Governor Ducey, well done.

Arizona Gov. Slam-Dunks Nike: ‘We Don’t Need to Suck Up to Companies’ That Denigrate Our History

From the article at PJMedia, by John Ellis:

“For the naysayers of Gov. Ducey, this isn’t a First Amendment issue. No company, including Nike, has a constitutional right to financial incentives subsidized by taxpayers. Apart from either greed or a doubling down on their anti-American stance, nothing is stopping Nike from setting up shop in Arizona. Likewise, Ducey hasn’t ordered Arizona stores to stop selling Nike products (he hasn’t even come close to hinting that). Arizona residents remain free to purchase whatever they want from Nike.”

Rep. Martha McSally, Candidate for U.S. Senate, Must Win!

McSally 1

This is from my friend Linda Rizzo. She sent it by email today and said that I could share. It is about our Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Martha McSally. Please read it and pass it along…

“Last night I had the opportunity to spend an evening in someone’s home with Martha McSally. It wasn’t a fundraiser. It was a time to hear her, see her, understand what makes her tick.

First and foremost, she is a Christian woman who sincerely loves and looks to God for help, strength, and guidance. She is unashamedly Christian. She talked about her 8-year battle to change military regulations so females in the service in Sharia observant countries would not be compelled to wear the burka. Her heart refused, as a Christian woman, to conform to Sharia law, so she fought for the religious freedom of all women in the service. She went up against Donald Rumsfeld and she won.

She talked about her life growing up after her father passed away when she was twelve. How she had all her ducks in a row when applying to the Air Force Academy, and how they told her she couldn’t be a pilot – which made her even more determined to be one!

We talked about the campaigns, her first ones and this one. Sinema has so much money to tell lies. Martha never voted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions! She has the Republican message down about all the things we want to put in place to give people real choices for health insurance and the ability to buy what they want instead of a one size fits all as we have had, thanks to Obama.

She is pro-life. I need to address something here: a persistent complaint that Martha gave Planned Parenthood $550,000,000 and so is not pro-life.

If by voting for the Onmibus funding bill, she is a baby killer, then so are Rep Chris Smith (NJ) who has co-chaired the Pro-life Caucus, Rep Vickie Hartzler (R) Missouri…/…/marriage-and-life, and our own David Schweikert. Please don’t be turned off by skewed claims.

I came away feeling like I wanted her to be a friend of mine. She is a real human being with courage and integrity.

We need to help Martha McSally get elected. Money, talking to friends and family, walking up and down your block, talking to neighbors. Whatever it takes. Get a yard sign and put it out.” (Written by Linda Rizzo)

September 19th Luncheon: Props 126, 127, 305 and 306: Cutting Through the Ballot Initiative Confusion

Aimee Rigler

Amy Rigler from Arizona Free Enterprise Club

Ballot initiatives are oft times perplexing. Intentionally misleading language is used to confuse the voter. Where do we go to help undo the misperceptions?  Look no further than our September 19th luncheon. Our guest speaker will help us cut through the muddle and get to the truth.
Join us on September 19th and let Aimee Rigler of the Arizona Free Enterprise Club arm us with the facts on some very important initiatives appearing on our November ballots-state wide. It will be imperative that we talk to our friends and neighbors about the real impact these initiatives will have on our state:
  • Prop. 126, the Prohibit New or Increased Taxes on Services initiative;
  • Prop. 127, the California billionaire Tom Steyer-sponsored Clean Energy initiative;
  • Prop. 305, the Expansion of Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESA) initiative; and
  • Prop. 306, the Helping to Keep “Clean” in Clean Elections initiative.

There’s a lot of clutter to sort through. Let Aimee Rigler help clear the way. See you on September 19th!

The cost of the luncheon is $35. Your reservation MUST be made by Friday, September 14th at 10 am to ensure a seat. For a faster check in on the day of the luncheon, please pay by cash or check.

Paula Linker Presented with Top Award!

At Saturday’s annual Lincoln Day Luncheon hosted by the Maricopa County GOP, Palo Verde RW member Paula Linker was honored for her long-time commitment to the Arizona Republican party. As a result of her “courage and determination” (per Rep. David Schweikert’s words entered into the Congressional Record–see text below), Paula was presented with the most prestigious Lincoln Lifetime Achievement Award. Congratulations Paula! 

Left to right: Rae Chornenky, Maricopa GOP Chairman Chris Herring, Paula Linker, Bruce Linker and Lori Stefanovich.

Rep. David Schweikert Touts Paula Linker’s Achievements, Enters Them into the Congressional Record: 


Mr. SCHWEIKERT. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to thank a very special member of my community. For as long as I have been involved in working for Arizona, Paula Linker has been a friend and supporter. Those who know Paula admire her for her courage and determination. She is forthright and dependable. She works every single day to make sure that the causes and people she cares for most have all the support she has to give. And, it is in that spirit that I am so pleased she is being awarded the Lincoln Lifetime Achievement Award from the Maricopa County Republican Committee. The community celebrates Paula, and it is with great enthusiasm that I include these remarks into the RECORD of the U.S. House of Representatives.
