JD Hayworth endorses Robert Graham for AZ GOP Chair

Hayworth endorsement: A strong message to conservatives

Former U.S. Congressman and prominent conservative radio personality JD Hayworth has endorsed Robert Graham for chairman of the Arizona Republican Party.

“Robert Graham has demonstrated, through his activism and strict adherence to principles, that he is a true conservative warrior. As a citizen-statesman, he has battled in the trenches while running a successful business. The Arizona Republican Party can benefit from Robert’s experience as a skilled entrepreneur and investor, so I ask fellow party members to join me in supporting Robert Graham as our next state chairman,” declared Hayworth.

“I have been friends with JD for a long time, strongly supporting him throughout his career,” said Graham. “JD is a true conservative, taking on the difficult issues before it was popular to do so. America is better off because JD served in Congress and I am grateful to have his support and counsel in my race for chairman.”

JD Hayworth has recently assumed the duties of National Advisor to TheTeaParty.net, a congressional advocacy group pushing for smaller government on Capitol Hill.

Robert Graham is a conservative activist and AZ business leader. He was a leader in the fight against taxes and the destruction of our party system, successfully working with the grassroots to defeat Propositions 121 and 204 in the 2012 election. Congressman Trent Franks, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, Arizona House Majority Leader David Gowan, Speaker Pro-Tempore JD Mesnard, Sen. Lori Klein, Rep. Justin Olson, Rep. Steve Montenegro, Maricopa County Chairman Rob Haney, Bob Stump Chairman of the Arizona Corporation Commission, Gary Pierce, former Chair of the Arizona Corporation Commission, Former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce and numerous Arizona conservative leaders have endorsed Graham to lead the Arizona GOP.

  1. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    This seals the deal for me. Graham has snagged a lot of prominent conservative supporters, but having JD’s support tells me with no uncertainty that Graham is the guy for me to back. Thanks for the information.

  2. BPaluch777@aol.com says:

    I see that McCain hand-puppet Flake and McAmnesty McCain’s names are missing from the endorsers. Wonder why?

  3. Westnash says:

    Hopefully the vote for Graham or anyone else comes not from an endorsement but understanding of and agreement with his position and that he would have an ability to Win.

    • dndaien@hotmail.com says:

      No, Westnash. Your “ability to win” statement is a hook to your Liberal ideology.

      Let’s see how that works.

      Your contention is always that in order to win, Republican candidates need to move to the left and that they need to cater to ethnic groups. Wrong! To win, Republican candidates need to adhere to Conservative principles and explain to voters why Conservative principles are best.

      Secondly, you deliberately stress “winning” over standing for principles of governance which are good for America. If a Republican presidential candidate took the same positions as Obama and won, that would be a meaningless “victory”. It would be a “victory” for those of you on the Liberal left.

      I see that SRAZ still chooses to permit Westnash, a Liberal leftist, to use this blog to spread Liberal propaganda.

      • Westnash says:

        Sorry, I am not liberal or a leftist.

        Republican candidates do absolutely need to espouse Conservative principles…but not by calling people communists or any extremist agenda that precludes them from winning. Otherwise it will be the former Republican party.

        Why are you so worried about my ability to post….afraid of others ideas? Isn’t that a leftist or communist tactic?

      • eubykdisop says:

        Reallly, Westnash? Here’s what you consider to be five examples of “far right”:

        “1. Refusing to compromise on Gun Laws in wake of the recent shootings and publicity.

        2. Refusing to compromise on fiscal cliff issues.

        3. Touting Joe McCarthy for anything but the buffoon he was.

        4. Insisting on the full Military Budget.

        5. Refusing to discuss the immigration issue and developing a “guest worker” program.

        These are killer issues for the National Republican party.”

      Westnash wrote: “…and that he would have an ability to Win.”

      This is the hook into Westnash’s Liberal ideology as his contention is that “the ability to win” is always dependent upon abandoning Conservative principles and moving to the left.

      • Westnash says:

        And the inability to win of others leaves them nothing but spouting on a soapbox, mostly to themselves.

      • eubykdisop says:

        But Westnash, you’re a big supporter of not winning!

        “Westnash says:”

        “January 8, 2013 at 8:00 am”

        “There will be some changes in gun regulations at some point in 2013 and the Republicans who only tow the NRA line of “no” will lose. Wouldn’t you rather outsmart your opponent than trying unsuccessfully in throwing up a wall, that is crumbling down around you.”

        You tell us that regarding the preservation of 2nd Amendment rights that we are “throwing up a wall, that is crumbling down” around us. Guess we should just give in to the Liberal left and get behind their gun control legislation as you suggest, in line with your support for not winning!

  4. State Committeeman says:

    Independent knowledge is always the best. But endorsements tell the rest of the story. When known and solid conservatives put their name and their own reputation behind a candidate, it speaks volumes. If Jeff Flake, John McCain or Jon Kyl endorse someone it would not be an inducement for me. It would signal, in no uncertain terms, the candidate was a RINO. Apparently, I’m not alone in that view. Kirk Adams received their endorsement and lost in the primary. In CD 9 McCain endorsed Martin Sepulveda. He lost in the primary. The McKyl duo endorsed Ben Quayle in CD 6. He also lost in the primary. Among conservatives, their endorsement of Jeff Flake was more of a hindrance than a help to him. He barely defeated Democrat Carmona. Team McKyl has supported numerous liberals, casting votes in favor of senate confirmations for everyone from Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Janet Napolitano, to radically left leaning federal judges.

    Even national GOP strategist, Karl Rove, questioned the value of McCain’s endorsement of Mitt Romney. “I’m not certain I would’ve had McCain in an endorsement. We got walloped by a guy who was spending time not worrying about endorsements but was worried about his message of being a maverick.”

    When the senile McCain tried to endorse, he called Romney “President Obama.”

    How about five examples of “far right” ideas and their “center right” alternatives Mr W?

    Westnash says:

    January 5, 2013 at 8:54 am

    Certainly,

    5 Far Right:

    1. Refusing to compromise on Gun Laws in wake of the recent shootings and publicity.

    2. Refusing to compromise on fiscal cliff issues.

    3. Touting Joe McCarthy for anything but the buffoon he was.

    4. Insisting on the full Military Budget.

    5. Refusing to discuss the immigration issue and developing a “guest worker” program.

    These are killer issues for the National Republican party.

    Thank you for the insight Mr. W

    Far Right:

    1. Refusing to compromise on Gun Laws in wake of the recent shootings and publicity.

    Great Britain and Australia currently regulate firearms in private hands almost to extinction. See: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323777204578195470446855466.html for a reasonable discussion and whether it’s worked or not.

    2. Refusing to compromise on fiscal cliff issues.

    This is a killer issue but not for the reasons you think. Obama refused to compromise and the REPs gave him virtually everything he wanted. He has pocketed that and is demanding more. If the Republicans continue to prove they can’t stand up to Obama the party will sustain damage. You should be happy about this. A complaint I hear frequently is that there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the parties. For a dispassionate discussion on the agreement results, go here: http://www.forbes.com/sites/anthonynitti/2013/01/02/secrets-of-the-fiscal-cliff-deal/ and enjoy paying higher taxes starting now.

    3. Touting Joe McCarthy for anything but the buffoon he was.

    Actually there were Communists in the government and Hollywood. When the Soviet Union fell (during Reagan’s term) Soviet archive records became available proving many cases. “Intellectuals” on the Left were convinced that Stalin’s communism was the wave of the future. Even those who saw the millions who starved in Ukraine over the course of the famine he used to subdue his opponents refused to talk about it publicly.

    4. Insisting on the full Military Budget.

    We could absolutely do with a European style weak military if you don’t mind learning Arabic and praying five times a day. Actually, we haven’t fought a war to win since WWII. Personally I think it’s because if we had lost WWII the first people to hang would have been the folks in DC and they knew it. They haven’t been really threatened since so winning hasn’t been high on the priority list. If you don’t like guns or the military, let us know by posting a “This house is gun free” sign on your front lawn.

    5. Refusing to discuss the immigration issue and developing a “guest worker” program.

    I haven’t been to a Republican meeting where there wasn’t someone discussing the immigration issue. The Democrats won’t discuss the issue with Republicans because they think it’s the source of their next generation of voters and as long as there’s no solution they can use it to get out their current voters. The issue could go away in a New York Minute. If the Democrats would agree to control the border the Republicans would get to work on a guest worker program. Of course the Unions would never allow the Democrats to participate in that one.

    None of these issues are “far right.” They are quite reasonable stands that are labeled “far right” because that moves the baseline making the Democrat’s preference for Marxist socialism look less “ultra left.”

    “Far right” used to describe thinks like sterilizing welfare moms, or debtors prisons. “Far left” used to describe things like registering guns and confiscating property from the rich and giving it to the poor. Guess where we are just now…
