Endorsements for statewide offices
The crazy season is upon us again. Snail mail and email boxes are filled with messages either extolling the virtues of candidates or raking them over the coals Some proudly declare the senders, others go to great lengths to conceal their Identities. Robocalls “reveal” disreputable candidates. Sometimes the candidates themselves plead with the call recipients not to believe the negatives being hurled at them. Scandal, real or manufactured, to coincide with the election, takes center stage. Regardless, early voting begins on schedule —- July 31, 2014.
Under the Words, IMPORTANT NOTICE, the Secretary of State’s Office provides three detailed lists of acceptable valid forms of identification required at the polls. Voting at your kitchen table? Rest assured no one will ask you to produce anything to ensure the ballot is being cast by an authorized voter.
The date of the Primary Election is August 26, 2014, seemingly contrived to keep late vacationers —- Republicans? —- away from the polls in the scorching Arizona summer.
With this backdrop, we have prepared this statewide endorsement list for your perusal. Few will come as a shock to those who regularly read this site. The overriding factors we considered revolve around adherence to Constitutional principles and protecting our great nation against invasion. As conservatives, we have previously expressed disappointment in the amnesty-leaning positions publicly taken by Republican incumbent members of the go-along-to-get-along congress, causing trust in them to wither. A link is provided to each candidate’s website.
