Tom Morrissey: Rumor, innuendo or truth?

The tortuous escapade preceding the Arizona Republican Statutory Meeting this Saturday has been full of intrigue and disappointments. First came the news that state chairman Randy Pullen would be unable to run for reelection due to an orchestrated coup in LD11, Pullen‘s home legislative district.  Next, conservatives breathed a sigh of relief after being told that Arizona’s National Committeeman Bruce Ash, was stepping up to take the reins from his friend Pullen. His conservative credentials were said to be intact.

Following that all too brief respite, Ash suddenly dropped out of the race, citing health issues. Fortunately, Tom Morrissey, a well-known former district chairman with recommendations galore offered to step up to take on this hefty job.

The establishment was none too happy with this turn of events, since they had all lined up behind one of their hand-picked minions, eager to fall in line with the elected clique lead by McCain and Kyl surrogates.

This post about Tom Morrissey earlier today has generated a host of comments.

However, we invite your attention to this recent article in the Arizona Republic on Morrissey’s charitable endeavors, which tell an even more complete story about the good man seeking this office.

    Tom Morrissey has picked up an amazing amount of momentum in the short time he has been an announced candidate. The Tea Party networks have been phenomenal in getting the word for Morrissey spread far and wide around Arizona.

    It’s a good thing those McStain ground forces are on salary and not working on commission – they would starve to death!

    I underatand Tom Morrissey will be a write-in candidate. Given that the McCain and Kyl forces will do anything they can to destroy his candidacy, please make sure you spell his name correctly. Write it down if that will help. Just get it right.

    M-O-R-R-I-S-S-E-Y.

    That’s TOM MORRISSEY!!!

    I’m not a state committeeman and thus will not be participating in the vote on Saturday. I can best be described as an active peruser of the passing political scene, as well as a strong conservative. From my perspective, Morrissey seems like a decent man, with a good background and ready to take on challenges. I would have no trouble supporting him for the state job. My unasked for advice to him would be not to tape a video of this nature in an outdoor setting with people walking past and a distracting fountain competing with this personal message. Without question this should have been done with a teleprompter in a closed door room, with a plant and filled bookcase, accompanying the serious tone. Whoever talked him into reading this message from a sheet of paper standing in a public venue should be relieved of advisory duties PRONTO.

    I’m voting for Morrissey and will encourage others to do the same.

    This mess should be instructional and this election will become a long remembered disaster. Thank you, Bruce Ash and the McCain slugs in Pullen’s district who started this in the first place!!
