It’s time to take back the AZ Republican Party
Frosty Taylor, editor & publisher of Republican Briefs, is a reliable conservative source who has unfailingly gotten essential information out to Maricopa County Republican activists. A former newspaper reporter, her commitment to integrity was honed when that was a career goal of people once known as journalists.
Monday’s Jan. 2, 2017 Briefs is loaded with crucial facts regarding the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Statutory Organizational Meeting to be held Jan 14, 2017 at El Zaribah Shriner’s Auditorium, 552 N 40th St., Phoenix, AZ 85008. The state GOP Statutory meeting (time and location not yet announced) will follow the Maricopa County meeting on Jan. 28. There are three candidates for AZ GOP Chairman: Briefs has sent identical questions to each of the candidates and will print their responses each day. Jonathan Lines, Frank Thorwald and Jim O’Connor’s replies are available under the Briefs link.
Candidates running for AZ GOP office and Maricopa County Republican Committee office during the January 2017 Mandatory meetings have been asked to submit their bios and positions to help PCs get acquainted with them and their views.
Worthy of note are the shenanigans current State Chairman Robert Graham has been engaging in. SRAZ has written about his deception on numerous occasions. Here is but one example. He is not only establishment, but self-serving and obviously angry that his aspirations to head the Republican National Committee have evaporated before his eyes. Opposing Donald Trump, he takes his marching orders from the McCain/Flake cabal, who both opposed Trump. Additionally, Graham was well aware and likely even complicit in the most recent McCain orchestrated ousting of conservative, elected precinct committeemen.
This upper echelon party effort to systematically remove conservatives from the Arizona party ranks previously made the national news. In 2012, former Sen. Jon Kyl also engaged in these despicable actions against dedicated PCs.
Be sure to check out the Jan. 1, 2017 cartoon published by The Arizona Daily Independent, depicting how the Republican Establishment continues to wage war on the party Grassroots, as the GOP syndicate lines up against Jim O’Connor. The conclusion drawn is, “that means he must be good….” He is. Of the three on the list, O’Connor is the one to support.
