As everyone knows, November 2014 will be a crucial election if Republicans hope to gain ground against Obamacare, amnesty and the skyrocketing debt. Quite frankly, if the GOP doesn’t rally in tremendous strength, this country may never recover and our grandchildren will be asking why we led them blindly down the path to the slaughterhouse.
This means that every state is critical and every seat is a must win. There are no U.S. House or Senate seats which are unimportant or inconsequential. Every single one matters.
Arizona is no exception. Currently the state enjoys the luxury of four conservative congressmen; Trent Franks, Matt Salmon, David Schweikert, and Paul Gosar, and in all likelihood, they will all be returning to Congress in November, which suits their districts just fine.
But there remain three additional U.S. House seats which could easily be gained out of the nine total in Arizona. And wouldn’t it be nice if solid Republicans picked these seats up? Nice indeed, because it would completely change the complexion of the current liberal leaning envoy from the 5-4 (D/R) to 7-2 (R/D). But the time is now or never, because even moderate, independent voters are mad about Obamacare, illegal immigration, and bad federal economic decisions, all of which are destroying this state.
On the liberal Democrat side, Reps. Krysten Sinema, Ann Kirkpatrick, and Ron Barber have experienced declining popularity because of their unwavering support of Obamacare, amnesty, and proposed Medicare cuts. At one point, Sinema knew she was in so much trouble she seriously considered switching districts to run in D-7, the heavily populated democratic region, which Ed Pastor is vacating. That would have been a much safer run for her, especially given the angst of voters over her open support of Obama’s liberal agenda.
