PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
What is 0.6%? Well it’s not the interest rate being offered by banks in this struggling economy. Nor is it the grade of the South Mountain Loop 202 freeway proposal. 0.6%, this week, is the difference between winning and losing the 2008 Republican Primary Election in Legislative District 20 for the Arizona House of Representatives.
Team Schmuck can honestly say that our opponent, Friends of John McComish, is just that – Friends! The Honorable John McComish runs a positive campaign and we salute him for his service and for his example of leadership. We expect Representative McComish to win the General Election this fall and return to the legislature next year for his third term. When he does, he will face significant challenges such as our 2 billion dollar budget crisis, illegal immigration, high gas prices, a stalled economy, the build of the South Mountain Loop 202 and a possible decision of how to unify School Districts if the voters of the district decide to do so this fall.
Representative McComish can and will handle these issues well for the citizens of Legislative District 20. All of Team Schmuck goes to bed at night knowing we also ran a positive campaign focusing on the issues of the people with “well articulated” positions and researched solutions to the problems. There are statesmen and politicians; and, Representative McComish is a statesmen because he, like Senator John Huppenthal, thinks of the next generation and not the next election.
We ask the more than 5,700 voters who supported Team Schmuck in this election to offer your support to Mr. McComish and our Republican candidates so they will easily go onto victory in November. In so doing, together we can concentrate on working to elect John McCain and Sarah Palin as the next President and Vice President of the United States of America.
As Co-Chair of Arizona Veterans for McCain, I bring your attention to a line in a poem written by Charles M. Province. “It is the soldier and not the politician who has given us the right to vote.” I am proud and honored to be a military veteran and have fought for that right just as Senator McCain and millions of other veterans have done. May God bless Arizona and America? We are the land of the free because of the brave!
Our plans are to continue TO SERVE the community, State and Nation with your best interest at heart. To quote Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, “I’ll be back.”
