Palin-Endorsed Candidates Gosar and Flake Win Respective Arizona Primaries

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 29, 2012

Two of the three candidates endorsed by Governor Palin the Arizona primaries  won their races yesterday.

Representative Jeff Flake won his bid for the Senate in the Republican primary for his district yesterday, as reported by  The Arizona Republic:

Arizona Election ResultsU.S. Rep. Jeff Flake handily won the Republican primary in the race to replace retiring Sen. Jon Kyl, setting up a general-election race with former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona that is expected to be much more competitive.

Flake, who has served six terms in the House, jumped out to a huge lead over businessman Wil Cardon, who spent millions of his own dollars trying to win the GOP nomination. Cardon, a political unknown, had flooded the radio and TV airwaves with his ads, but in pre-election polls, Flake always held commanding double-digit leads — a difference that showed up immediately in Tuesday’s vote counts.

Flake will now face Carmona, who had no opponent in the primary. Some polls earlier in the summer indicated Carmona in a tight race with Flake and with a slight advantage in campaign funds headed into the general election.

Flake, speaking from his home in Mesa on Tuesday night, said he believes he and Carmona offer such differing visions for Arizona that voters will find the choice easy to make.

“I’m going to be talking about jobs, the economy, about our debt, our deficit, what our federal government needs to do to allow job creation,” Flake said. “What you’ll see is Rich Carmona defending the president’s agenda. It’s what he’s done so far, and it’s what he’s going to do.”

Republican U.S. Rep Paul Gosar has won the Republican primary in Congressional District 4, and is on his way to a probable second term in Congress.

Paul Gosara also won by a large margin in the Republican Congressional primary in his district, as reported by azcentral.com:

Gosar beat state Sen. Ron Gould, his closest rival, by a large margin as well as radio-station owner Rick Murphy in the Republican Primary.

In the Democratic primary, political newcomers Johnnie Robinson of Florence and Mikel Weisser, a Golden Valley high school teacher, were virtually tied in early voting.

District 4, however, is overwhelmingly Republican and if Gosar wins he is expected to have no difficulty winning a second-term in Congress.

Gosar celebrated at a restaurant in Prescott with about 200 supporters.

He attributed his primary win to “working with people” and “putting solutions on the table.”

He said he was happy to have what he characterized as a “negative” primary campaign behind him and is now looking forward to the November general election.

“We have been talking about success and ideas and talking about ideas and getting people back to work in rural Arizona and where we can get people to believe again in America,” Gosar said in a telephone interview. “We are not going change that matra because that is a winning recipe for people, and that is what we are here for is people.”

Unfortunately, Paul Adams lost his battle for the Republican Congressional nomination to Matt Salmon as abc15.com reports:

 Former Congressman Matt Salmon has beaten former Arizona House Speaker Kirk Adams to win the Republican nomination for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District in southeastern Maricopa County.

Salmon was leading Adams by 54 percent to 46 percent Tuesday evening.

The Kirk Adams campaign released this video on the evening of the election.  I suspect this is not the last we will hear from him as he seeks to serve his country.

  • Had a great time today in Gilbert, Arizona, at a rally for Kirk Adams. It’s very important to pay attention to these down ballot races like Kirk Adams, Jeff Flake, and Paul Gosar in Arizona. We have to remember that this election is not just about replacing the party in power. It’s about who and what we replace it with. Grassroots conservatives know this. Without the energy and wisdom of the grassroots, the GOP would not have had the historic 2010 electoral victories. That’s why the controversial rule change being debated at the RNC convention right now is so very disappointing. It’s a direct attack on grassroots activists by the GOP establishment, and it must be rejected. Please follow the link to Michelle Malkin’s article about this.

Jeff Flake Announces Governor Palin’s Endorsement (U.S. Senate, Arizona)

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 23, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

According to Jeff Flake’s campaign website, Governor Palin has given Flake her endorsement in his run for the U.S. Senate (Arizona):

The Flake campaign announced today that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has endorsed Jeff Flake for United States Senate. Jeff Flake sought Governor Palin’s support and is honored to have it.

In a letter to Jeff, Governor Palin wrote: “The United States Senate needs a leader like Jeff Flake. Jeff is a proven conservative crusader, and today I am proud to announce mysupport for his campaign to become the next U.S. Senator from the great state of Arizona.

“Throughout his tenure in Congress, Jeff has been a consistent leader against the federal government’s out of control spending. Jeff is known for his media releases titled ‘Just How Broke Are We?’ where he brings home the reality of what our unimaginable $15 trillion debt really means in everyday terms. For the past eight years, Jeff has been ranked #1 in the House of Representatives by the National Taxpayers Union for his efforts against wasteful government spending.

“Credited by many as the leading anti-earmark crusader in the House, Jeff has fought hard against pork barrel spending – often times casting one of the few GOP ‘no’ votes on bloated spending measures. He’s not afraid to ‘go rogue’ against his own party and its leadership; and even though he has sometimes suffered the consequences from GOP leaders for failing to toe the party line, yet he continues to fight for what is right.

“I’ve spoken often about the need for sudden and relentless reform of government. Jeff is just the sort of ‘relentless reformer’ we need in the Senate. He will bring his fight against our crippling debt, reckless spending, and wasteful earmarks to the Senate. Watch this video at www.mrflaketakesonwashington.com, and you’ll see why I am joining with Senators McCain & Kyl to support Jeff Flake for U.S. Senate.”

Jeff Flake responded to the endorsement, saying: “I am very gratified to receive the support of Governor Palin today. Governor Palin is a passionate conservative who has inspired many in the cause to reform Washington. I have always shared her healthy aversion to wasteful spending and out of control bureaucracy. Again, I am pleased to have her confidence in this campaign.”
