Lesko wins CD-8 GOP Special Primary

With 100% of the precincts reporting, the unofficial figures are:
Debbie Lesko:               35,77%  —  25, 508 votes

Phil Lovas:                   23,88%   —  17,031  votes   

Steve Montenegro:       23.82%   —  16,987  votes

Montenegro, originally considered by many observers to be the front-runner, was irreparably damaged by recent revelations of his sexting with a legislative intern. A married pastor and former District Representative for U.S. Rep. Trent Franks, who resigned his congressional seat in December, Montenegro was endorsed by Franks — who remains popular in the district. Montenegro also took hits for his support of the National Popular Vote, which would have put Hillary Clinton in the White House.

Phil Lovas, originally appointed to the state legislature, attempted to use his early endorsement of President Trump to gin up support for his own candidacy, but fell far short.

Conservative Lesko, a state senator who served as Senate President Pro-Tempore, and carried the endorsement of former Gov. Jan Brewer, held her impressive lead over 11 challengers from the earliest reporting tallies. Congressional District 8 is a GOP stronghold. It’s highly unlikely liberal Democrat victor Hiral Tipirneni with 21,703 votes, will carry the solid red district in the April 24, 2018 Special General Election.

    Agree – the winning Democrat most probably will not carry the district.
    Info about the Democrats running in CD 8:
    The Democrats were political newcomers Dr. Hiral Tipirneni and Brianna Westbrook.

    Tipirneni is an emergency-room physician backed by former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords.

    Westbrook became involved in politics several years ago as a transgender woman who argued for a Phoenix policy that would protect the LGBTQ community from discrimination.

      WOW!! Typical agendized liberals. I saw the photo of Brianna Westbrook and had no idea she was a he. Liberal’s desires for mainstreaming outrageousness far outweighs their concern for the public good.

    Dr. Tipirneri worked as an ER doc for 10 years, after coming here from Cleveland, via India.

    She met her husband in a (brace yourself) cadaver lab.
    According to AZFamily

    She decided to run for office the Day After Trump won the election(talk about a knee-Jerk reaction).

    She has a LOT of support among recently arrived Libs who have moved into adult communities in the West Valley. Her peeps did a lot of door-knocking these neighborhoods.
    Gabby Gifford$ i$ her new be$t friend.

    Meanwhile,
    The internet biggies like Twitt, Goog,& Ytube continue to turn the screws on anything that vaguely resembles conservatism or Christianity.

    And This:
    Did you hear about the HazMat situation which caused many USMarines to be transported to the hospital yesterday afternoon?
    Joint Base Fort Myer-Henderson Hall, VA.
    The Dip Sticks know that Trump is using the Marines to go around the lying alphabet agencies.
    We know you’re part of it, youASS.

    You’ve heard the TV commercial: What’s in YOUR wallet?. . . .

    Besides his libido problems, and surrendering to teenage impulses with topless photos from the junior intern, who assured him she would never betray him, he took the advice of political consultant Constantin Querard who is all in for the national popular vote. There must be some big money in it or Querard wouldn’t be anywhere near such a doomsday issue.  Montenegro was sold out not only by his own lack of control but also Querard and the intern, who promptly hired a lawyer despite giving every assurance in the book to Montenegro that their secret was safe with her..  PT Barnum said it best, “A sucker is born every minute.”

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      The whole Montenegro thing was doomed from the start. It began with the ‘national popular vote’ which no conservative would get behind. It went downhill from there. At least now, I won’t be hearing from Franks, Ted Cruz or Montenegro via robo calls in the evening. District 8 will never be the same. And we have two “conservatives” to thank.

    Gabby Giffords’ cabal planning to ‘take down these Republicans’

    Take a look at the pic. Wow. Unhinged. Anyone standing in such close proximity to Elijah Cummings and Maxine Waters needs to find new friends.

    Is that a threat?

    Plenty of threats going out today from the Left.

    George Soros’ son has now jumped in on Instagram.
    Posting a pic of a 5star hotel in Austria which flies the flags of several countries (and the United Nations).
    He types the caption “Which flag will fall first?”

    John Podesta, whose Twitter account is heavily protected, seems to be issuing a threat to Jared Kushner by suggesting that Trump’s son-in-law should think about wearing “Kevlar on his back. . .”

    99.9% of Americans have No Idea what is really going on.
    They will 187 us rather than give up their one world govt scheme.

    Gotta say that his entire thread was hard to follow; but I persevered, and think I now know what you’re all discussing.
    But, in future, do NOT type in riddles.

    There was a guy posing as former congressman Bob Stump and that poser must be pals with Flake.

    • Casper says:

      You appear to be buying into the line from the daily news. Bob Stump has been using his middle name for years. He was elected to the Corporation Commission , where he’s done an admirable job, with that name. Few people even remember Congressman Strump who died decades ago..Since you have previously identified yourself as a young voter, I’ll bet you don’t! Did you know congressman Stump was elected as a Democrat and changed his registration to Republican while in office?
