    Jean &I want to thank AJ for his service to all of us and pray the best for him, and while we’re at it I’m hoping that the State Party or those who’ve given to it will be able to lend AJ a hand with the legal problem he’s not having, this is nothing more than a fear tactic to keep us from exposing the fraud in the Voting System and remember if they did it this yr. just wait for 16, ask the National & State to help AJ out. God Bless You All; Van & Jean

    “Arizona insiders: McCain’s already decided to run for Senate again in 2016, will announce early next year
    “OK, get to work.”

    Any one that can set up a blog for all to use to help those on the ground in Az..
    Some one who is a poster here can be sent donations enough to get the blog up and running.
    If not U. S. who?

    I will be happy to set up a blog post to help co-ordinate the primary rout of both McCain and Flake. How does “SendRinoFlakeHome” sound!
    Anyone else have a good name for the Blog, let me know by Midnight Sunday(tomorrow). And let me know if you support this effort. Not enough support, no sense in creating a blog. Also, without being able to contact supporters, it’s hard to start co-ordinating people. The core group that responds can pass on the blog site address.

      So, what about a campaign to convince Alan West to move to AZ & run against mcStain?
      …I’m absolutely NOT joking………….

    • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

      Blogs are all well and good, however need to find someone to run against McCain and then get the $$$$$$$$$$’s needed to get them elected, remember last time he bought the job by spending well north of 20 million, we need to raise the funds, manage them well and get a candidate, this is the only way to defeat McCain, if you’re sure he’s running then this needs the work first and the blog could be part of the site for that candidate as well. God Bless You; Van

      • azgary says:

        a movement needs to be built, capitalize on hatred of mccain.

        you win the argument, then you win the vote.

        that’s how we got Diane Douglas.

        of course beating McCain is an uphill battle, but we need to build on how much he is despised by conservatives and everything we can do on all different types of media can help.

    • Borderhawk says:

      Senate Conservatives without Jim DeMint might be more likely to be involved. DeMint didn’t want to get involved in 2010.

      So to Club For Growth. Depends on the candidate who runs. CFG had some beef with Hayworth’s voting record.

    What a loss for conservatives! I wonder who will step up able to fill these big shoes?

    • Doc says:

      Don’t you fret…th’ R.I.N.O.’s will get one of their lackeys to do it…
      Sad day for Maricopa Co. & AZ. Conservatives….

      • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

        Start looking at the LD and even outside to registered activist who aren’t PCs possibly, we need to replace AJ before the Mc’s do.

  4. azgary says:

    hear that……….

    its the silence from the azgop

    • Kimball says:

      You’ll grow a long, white beard waiting for accolades for AJ LaFaro from Robert McGraham or any of the Arizona GOP establishment. He’s a conservative!

      • azgary says:

        another example of the azgop abandoning republican principles and party members.

        we will never accomplish anything but McCain and the CoC’s wishes until mcgraham is gone and replaced by an adherent to the platform and not a bought and paid for fellator of lobbyist and McCain like graham is.

    • Attila the Hunny says:

      The bad news is Lisa Gray is running for MCRC Chairman……and she’s no conservative!!!

      • Ellsworth says:

        What I hear is even worse. Lisa Gray will run for Maricopa County Chair and Lisa James will be back trying to capture the state GOP. It’s the stuff horror film are made of: “The Revenge of the Lisa’s.”

    It’s sad to see A.J. LaFaro go. I think two good candidates that should run in his place are Rob Haney or Andrew Thomas.

    These guys have defended the republican party platform and have stood up to McCain and his Chamber cronies.

    I remember back in 08, when Rob Haney was about to censure John McCain, Jon Kyl told him to stop. But luckily, Haney listened to the conservatives and censured the old fart.

    When Andrew Thomas ran for Gov, he was the only candidate that didn’t ask for McCain and Kyl’s endorsement. In fact he was one of the very few state wide candidates that didn’t want Johnny Amnesty tainting his good name. These are people I would like to see run the GOP.

  6. Rob Haney. says:

    Tom Husband and I asked AJ to run for County Chairman and we could not be more proud of his performance. He has stood up to the slings and arrows and has given a few of his own. It is a very difficult road to hoe-to be a conservative in a land ruled by RINOs- but AJ has stood the test and we are very grateful to him. Thank you AJ!

  7. Andrew says:

    Thank you from Southern Arizona! We will not forget.

  8. Borderhawk says:

    Maybe he doesn’t want the 2016 McCain primary to be about the censures and any other personal beef between McCain and the challenger’s surrogates.

    Just so the primary challenger has a clean slate and it is about McCain’s terrible record.

    The censures were a good idea but I don’t think the challenger even needs to bring that up to beat McCain or for a unified challenge against McCain.

  9. Hagar says:

    Please reconsider, AJ!
