Paul Gosar, the conservative Republican candidate in Arizona’s First Congressional District has caught the attention of Townhall’s Brian Walsh. His column 2010 Race of the Day: Ann Kirkpatrick’s Failed Policies in Arizona unmistakably delineates the differences between freshman Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick and Dr. Paul Gosar.
Out-of-touch with the residents of the district and ineffective, liberal Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick has sponsored 30 bills since Jan 6, 2009 of which 20 haven’t made it out of committee. Adept only at flim-flam, she has been a staunch supporter of the leftist policies of the Obama administration, consistently voting with Nancy Pelosi.
Kirkpatrick is perhaps best known for walking out on her constituents (click link for video) who had the temerity to ask her questions she didn’t want to answer. She has even ticked off the Apache tribal chairman. Backing from the tribes is significant in Arizona’s 1st House district; Native Americans make up roughly 20 percent of the population, one of the highest concentrations in the country.
Ann Kirkpatrick is a favorite of the unions — making significant donations to her campaign — while advocating a massive boycott of Arizona based on their opposition to SB 1070. She previously displayed her disconnect during her initial 2008 race where her top campaign contribution was $167,876 from employees of the pro-abortion EMILY’s List.
Do yourself a favor and read this outstanding article. It clearly presents the differences between liberals and conservatives, showing the importance of taking back the congress from Democrats who have worked to steamroll American citizens in concert with President Obama and his acquiescing liberals House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate President Harry Reid.
The future is in our hands. Vote Republican.
