The State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party will hold its mandatory meeting tomorrow — Saturday, January 28 — where elected state committeemen will choose their officers for the next two years. This is an important election, setting the stage for the AZ GOP as it enters the crucial 2012 election.
In the race for AZ GOP 3rd Vice-Chair there are two candidates offering a clear choice. Chad Palmer, an LD-1 State Committeeman from Prescott is the strong conservative who presents a robust contrast to Graham County GOP Chairman John “J. Duane” Rhodes.
Rhodes, an establishment cohort, endorsed John McCain over conservative JD Hayworth in the 2010 U.S. Senate race. Rhodes and fellow moderate — former state Rep. Bill Konopnicki — are Co-Chairmen of Jeff Flake’s campaign in Graham County.
The energetic Chad Palmer is the well qualified and dependable conservative choice for the Third Vice-Chair position. Based on his values and dedication, he has won the endorsement of Sen. Ron Gould. We also urge his support.
The choice is clear. Vote for the conservative. Vote for Chad Palmer.
