Republic endorsement of Democrat a winner for GOP Douglas
Diane Douglas, conservative candidate for AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction is on a roll. First Douglas captured the attention and the endorsement of syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, who has devoted the past two years to exposing the massive education fraud known as Common Core. Malkin describes Diane Douglas as “principled, clear-thinking, and bold.”
As if on cue, this week’s edition of the Weekly Standard features a cover story by Andrew Ferguson detailing the “Rotten to the Common Core” scheme.
Arizonans have come to expect the leftwing radicals at the Arizona República newspaper to push their own agenda, which consists of itching to replace Republicans with liberal Democrats. The promotion of Obama’s favored takeover of local control, marginalizing parental involvement is right up their alley.
A case in point are the ridiculous side-by-side editorials which ran Tuesday. One, appropriately placed on the left, touts the “Dems’ No. 1 candidate for state schools chief.” The brass of the editorial board is so thick they even advise him to hire his primary opponent! Abutting that absurd spew is a mirror image editorial for the same office on the Republican side. This dog-bites-man endeavor actually declares the “GOP lacks a good choice.”
To principled conservatives an endorsement from the leftist Arizona República would be a negative to run from.
We’ve been had by the now toxic Republicrat John Huppenthal, who is imploding before our very eyes. He ran as a conservative and ended up not only proudly announcing his statewide travels with Obama’s educrat czar Arne Duncan, but colluding with Gov. Brewer to flim -flam furious parents by deviously changing the name of the scheme, re-branding it “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards,” via this executive order.
Diane Douglas is a welcome face on the political horizon. She is warmly received at appearances throughout the state. The Arizona Daily Independent titled its coverage, “Douglas takes Huppenthal to the mat during GOP AZ Superintendent of Instruction Debate.”
If you missed the recent debate, watch it here.
This new ad is inundating conservative talk radio in the days preceding the arrival of early ballots. Douglas is making tracks and clearly knows the issues. She deserves our votes.
