Conservative Congressman Paul Gosar doing a stellar job, riles leftist newspaper
The increasingly radical, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper doesn’t even make a pretense of neutrality in contested elections. Its leftward lurch is not confined to its endorsements, but infiltrates what should be straight news content. Columnists, relics held over from the pre-Gannett sale and survivors of the mass firings as the homeless, vagrant newspaper tries to keep its head above water, routinely target Republicans. Republicrats, such as former Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake are exempt and embraced. Conservatives are eviscerated.
A favored target is U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, who represents the 4th Congressional District (map) — which stretches from the Utah border in Arizona’s northwest corner down to Yuma in the southern part of state. President Trump carried the district by 68% to Hillary’s 28%, in what can rightfully be described as a drubbing.
Congressman Gosar, whose stellar ratings are listed here following his impressive bio, steadfastly supports President Trump, which is anathema to the newspaper. Though the primary and general elections are a nearly a year away, the fire is already blazing under the anti-Gosar cauldron. The newspaper’s columnists hammer him at very turn and the skewed news reports batter him for effectively carrying out his duties and representing his constituents who have voted for him since 2010. He is currently serving his fifth term. In 2018, Gosar handily won reelection garnering 68.2% of the vote.* His Democrat opponent carried just 30.5%. A Green Party candidate took 1.3%.
In the 2016 Primary Election the tantrum-throwing newspaper endorsed unknown Ray Strauss, whom Gosar defeated 71.4% to 28.6%.
Prior to being elected to Congress, Dr. Gosar owned his own dental practice. As a small businessman for 25 years he is uniquely attuned to the fact that small businesses are integral to the success of their communities.
A quick internet search of his name and the newspaper’s turned up pages of negative articles in the rag often referred to as the Daily Insult or the AZ Repulsive. A man of faith and integrity, his tireless efforts on behalf of his constituents and the state of Arizona are of no consequence to the partisan extremists at the failing newspaper.
