Harsh truths underscore internecine AZ GOP battles

RINO proxies more prized by establishment cronies than voting conservative committeemen

The Arizona Daily Independent runs another topical comic —- this one channeling Frosty Taylor’s well respected Republican Briefs.

In the tradition of Thomas Nast, imparting harsh truths via political cartoon,Lines Up Proxies” (link) underscores the trickery leading up to the Republican intra-party elections where new county and state leadership will be chosen by elected precinct committeemen and state committeemen at their respective January meetings.

AZ GOP Chairman Jonathan Lines who oversaw unparalleled Republican losses in the November 6, 2018 General Election, is arrogantly running for reelection rather than the nearest door. Lines, selected by his predecessor Robert (Mc)Graham, was rarely seen in AZ GOP headquarters. He lives 200 miles away in Yuma and has 11 children and a roofing business to keep him busy.

Be sure to read first two paragraphs following the cartoon. They are anything but funny, as the establishment proxy high jinks are exposed and best summed up in this single sentence: “It’s as though John McCain is still pulling the strings from his grave.”

Dr. Kelli Ward, a former two-term state senator, is the conservative running for Arizona Republican Chairman. SRAZ supports her candidacy. Read about her and her unifying vision for the Arizona Republican Party moving forward to the 2020 elections.

    Jonathan Lines has been a disaster. We lost previously Republican-held seats both statewide and federally under his “watch.”

  2. State Committeeman says:

    It’s impossible to call the election debacle we suffered with Jonathan Lines at the AZ GOP helm anything but a disgrace. How dare he run for reelection?

  3. Frankly Speaking says:

    There are a number of people running for Republican state chair. Most are tied at the hip to the McCain syndicate. Don’t kid yourselves thinking its buried with him. He has a cadre of true believers who are still at work delivering his Republicrat agenda, beginning and ending with Trump hatred and open borders. McCain had a special fondness for the invading hordes who are prized by the Democrats as a solid voter base.

    Well by now y’all have heard McDucey just appointed McSullied for her mentors senatorial seat. Too bad and though we knew if would be someone from the cabal, my question is does anyone really believe Ward could win against the miscreant Lines? She is a two time loser for the Senate seat, she had very low numbers and has many who would not vote at all for the three who are running for State Chairman.
    Just sayin’ and also pointing out the electronic method of voting will ensure Lying Lines get his votes not to mention all the paper pcs they have and the majority of State Committeemen who did get elected. Many of the districts maintain that the names on lists of state committeemen are unknowns never even attended district meetings, and they made it in ahead of long time PCs! They were put in place just to ensure Villainthon Lines wins.

      Kelli Ward, twice elected as a state senator, was up against the massive political McMachine when she lost the U.S. Senate races. The fact that she lost under those circumstances means nothing.

      Abraham Lincoln lost eight elections, failed more than once in business and suffered two bouts of what he described as “melancholia,” commonly referred to today as nervous breakdowns. A lesser man would have quit. Instead, due to his his perseverance Lincoln is widely regarded as one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history.

      Would you counsel your children or grandchildren to throw in the towel after defeat, especially at the hands of a bully?

    Keilli is not a conservative – she joined Ducey to save commoncore – no diff from Chamber McSally

  6. PC and State Committeeman says:

    Thank you BS61 you nailed it. Lincoln?? Really???? I am not fond of old Abe as I have some interesting facts many won’t acknowledge about him but he was smart can’t say that about the women that run for office in AZ. Brewer, Wendy Rogers, The Baroness, and a few more that ran for lesser offices. So how do we know McSally and Ward is made of the same clothe?? Let me count the ways.
    BS does that mean anything or just initials, sorry but we are so covered with BS here in AZ just wondering if it is a double entendre.
