The emails are being sent in rapid succession, with the obvious expectation that Republican voters have defective memories. Secretary of State candidate Shawnna Bolick seems to have forgotten that the GOP logo is the elephant, esteemed for its keen sense of recall. We also grasp the differences between primary and general elections.
Few voters are fans of single-term, coarse and crude democrat former Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes, and were happy to see him defeated for his fondness for easy-to-manipulate mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting.* Fontes is currently running for Secretary of State on the democrat ticket, preposterously hoping to oversee statewide elections. He faces a democrat primary challenger.
The words “democrat ticket” are crucial in this context, since Shawnna Bolick conveniently forgets she also faces a Republican August 2, 2022 primary election where she will be pitted against two other Republican candidates. This is not the first time she’s tried this misleading ploy, stating she has two democrat (she calls them their preferred label, “Democratic”) candidates running against her, giving them unnecessary prominence by naming them. The fact is, the two men are actually running against one another in the August 2022 primary, not against Bolick. The general election, in which the winners of their political party’s primary go head-to-head, will occur on November 8, 2022.
Scheming Bolick has doubled down on pitching for campaign donations, pleading, “It’s me, Shawnna Bolick, asking for your help. I know my team e-mailed you yesterday, but I thought I would reach out myself.” Feigned desperation drips off her pleas.
Although she ran for the legislature, losing twice in LD 11, and is concluding her second term in the state legislature after slickly moving to a district with a vacancy, she strangely chooses to define herself as “not a politician.”
She is also trying to deflect from the fact that President Trump has endorsed in the race, and it isn’t Bolick who won his praise. State Rep. Mark Finchem secured the prized endorsement.
