Adam Kwasman: The Right Choice in CD 1

Rep. Adam Kwasman has distinguished himself as a Republican member of the Arizona House of Representatives — having served as Vice Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and as a member of the Appropriations, Commerce and Joint Legislative Budget Committees. Now the Arizona native has announced the formation of his exploratory campaign for Congress in the First Congressional District.

Kwasman is an economist, consulting for financial advisors, forecasting how the tax, regulatory, and legal framework affect economic growth. With a Masters degree in Economics he has credentials that will prove invaluable in Congress. He understands the imperative of getting spending under control, balancing the budget and reducing the size of government.

Read Kwasman’s impressive bio here. Then check out his positions on the issues that are paramount to Arizonans. In February, Kwasman wrote this opinion piece on Arizona’s Medicaid expansion, courageously opposing a governor of his own party, while noting the expansion “would be a ‘nightmare’ for Arizona.

Seeing Red AZ has previously called Kwasman, the “bright and energetic conservative representing LD 11.”  With his exploratory announcement, Arizonans in the First Congressional District will have an opportunity to irreversibly replace the previously ousted liberal Ann Kirkpatrick.

Roll Call’s Stuart Rothenberg refers to the 2014 CD 1 race by citing Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick — and her equally liberal seatmate AZ CD 2 Rep. Ron Barber — “among at least 11 Democrat incumbents who start off at risk.” This stunning video reminder as she ran from her constituents, clearly illustrates her disconnect with the voters, and reveals a good reason for Kirkpatrick’s shaky position.

    Adam represents my district, and I must say in addition to all the good things being said about him here, he is also a genuinely good person.

    Rep. Adam Kwasman reminds Obamacare-loving Governor Brewer how the legislative process works after she calls for a special session to pass Medicaid expansion.

      I also live in Kwasman’s district, pcrcPC, and agree with your comments!!
      Adam Kwasman is smart and doing a great job staying connected with his constituents. It was beyond refreshing when he publicly and early on separated himself from Gov. Jan Brewer on her support of Obamacare ( Medicaid expansion in AZ.). He won himself a lot of friends by taking that position. That will be the bright line in the sand between him and the far left Obama sycophant Ann Kirkpatrick.

      Great video!! Thanks.

        kkwasman has appointed obrewercare traitors shope and orr as campaign co-chairs. there goes my support for his candidacy.

        this is one republican who is tired of having to settle for the lesser of two evils.

        if you are not able to support the platform, philosophy and ideology, than im not able to support you.

        if you are not able to publicly, vocally and frequently call out those who turn their backs on the platform and the base with full throated outrage, again I am unable to support you.

    I’m certainly “up” for some bold new leadership. Most of the Arizona Republicans appear to be caving on the issues that matter most to me and my family. They’re good at giving pre-election lip service and then cave on the mammoth and overriding issue of amnesty. I’ve read some other comments on this site from conservatives who advocate term limits. I’ve never been there, but am moving in that direction. I will say that nothing is more important to me than this idiocy of welcoming lawbreakers with the greatest gift we can offer…..US Citizenship. It will be a cold day in Phoenix before I vote for or send a check to such supposed “representatives.” They sure don’t represent me or anyone I know.

    We have already been steam rolled by McCain and Flake. If US Reps. Schweikert, Salmon, Gosar or Franks vote for amnesty, I will actively work against them, regardless of which district they (supposedly) represent. I still trust Trent Franks and hope he stays true to the GOP platform.

    This is the biggest scam I’ve ever seen. We continue to have high unemployment. I am sick of being told there are jobs Americans refuse to do. The Hispanics will be given the ability to bring in their relatives. They will all be competing for American jobs and education at our state universities. ASU’s Michael Crow wants the illegal so-called ‘dreamers” to have in-state tuition that my nephew who was born in AZ but raised in California, can’t even access. Enough!

    I hope Kwasman is the real deal.

      yeah, I hear you.

      the politicians should be required to state publicly how they will vote according to the platform, ideology, and philosophy.

      if they disagree with any, they should state it during the election, not after, so we have an informed choice. otherwise known as pulling a rubio

      they then should work for what got them elected, even if they “evolve” on an issue.

      if they cannot do what got them elected, they should resign.

      the party should also hold them to this standard, which is something the azgop chairman robert graham will never do, he is owned by the establishment, karl rove, the rnc, special interest and lobbyist.

      isn’t it nice to see a.j. lafaro supporting the platform publicly, vocally, and often.

      take the poll, should the party stick with conservative values:
      (Poll is on he left of the article)

    It seems to me that the “republicans” who disapprove of Mr. LaFaro’s way of thinking….need to be honest with their constituents & themselves about where they Truly stand…Politically.

  4. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Reps. Thomas “T.J.” Shope and Ethan Orr are despicable democrat supporting RINOs and Adam Kwasman has selected them as his congressional campaign co-chairs? What’s up with that? Isn’t he purporting to be a conservative?
    The Arizona Conservative Coalition has them both ranked as RINOs, with Orr scoring at 46.4 and Shope at 44.7 out of 100 possible.
    Couldn’t Kwasman find a couple of more acceptable co-chairs, or is it because they actually represent his values?
