What’s refreshing to see are three, relatively new faces entering the arena to fill these slots and all appear to be strong contenders working relentlessly to gain enlightened voter support across the state. Meet Andrew Walter, Adam Kwasman, and Chuck Wooten, all of whom bring unique talents to the fray and have excellent chances of success.
Although Andrew Walter isn’t known as a seasoned politician, he does have a familiar face around the state and country, and he’ll need it in the general race against liberal incumbent Sinema. His only opponent in the primary is Wendy Rogers, who’s run and lost twice. “She openly discounts me by saying I don’t have enough political experience,” Walter says, “but I’m not sure running two failed campaigns qualifies her as having great ‘political experience.’ Besides, I think voters are tired of a consistent loser and have faith I can win. They’ve seen me do it against tough odds.”
Walter first earned his local reputation as ASU’s star quarterback and later as a 2005 draft pick for the Oakland Raiders, followed by the New England Patriots. After his football career he earned his MBA and worked in the banking industry, which gives him an in-depth business perspective on the state of our economy.
Aside from her radically
As Walter exclaimed, “Exactly how low can a person go? This is the ugliest display of political opportunism I’ve witnessed in a very long time. Not only should she accept responsibility and apologize to the entire district, she should also refund all the money, and make a donation to a veterans association - equal to the amount donated due to that email.”
Walter sees three top issues as his priorities. “One, we must unleash the American economy to create jobs by restoring basic free market principals. Two, we must repeal and replace Obamacare because nothing else will suffice, and three, we must, absolutely – not consider amnesty.” One more point worth mentioning, is that Walter does not see himself as a career politician. “I’ve signed a pledge to author an Amendment that limits the terms of members of congress. I want to help the 2014 Congress gear up and turn this country around, so that regular folks can get back to living the American dream.”
Adam Kwasman is a rising star in the largest geographical district in Arizona, and has the credentials to back up his claims of fiscal conservatism. After earning his B.A. (Cum Laude) from Tulane University, he went on to earn his M.A. in Economics from George Mason University. Before entering the Arizona state House of Representatives, his fight for constitutional liberty began when he worked at the Cato Institute in Constitutional Studies.
Kwasman’s doesn’t mince words. “I’m a Hayekian economist. Either we cut government spending, secure the borders without exception, repeal Obamacare and get the EPA out of our lives, or we lose this country.”
The incumbent, Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, has the opposite view and works tirelessly promote the liberal agenda of amnesty, Obamacare and an increased EPA.
In District 1, two hot topics are the Navajo Generating Station and the Kayenta Mine which create over 1,100 jobs, mostly for Native Americans. The EPA wants to shut them down and/or levy heavy fines which would put them out of business. Instead of standing strong for the NGS, Kirkpatrick seems more interested in clean air than crucial jobs.
Kwasman doesn’t agree and wants the EPA brought under control. “They are about to shut down the Navajo Generating Station, which is completely unacceptable. The EPA is working against the people of the state of Arizona and must be stopped.”
And finally, down in the far southeastern corner of the state comes Chief Master Sergeant (Ret.) Chuck Wooten. Prior to retiring from the USAF, he held the prestigious position of 19th Air Force Command Chief, overseeing the training, morale, and welfare of 14 unit locations and 17,000 subordinate troops. After retirement, he became the V.P. of Federal Business Development for SoxedoUSA, a 20 billion/year global corporation. Today he is the founder/owner of Corona Consulting Corporation and works extensively with contractors engaged in acquisition support directed at the U.S. Government, NATO, and other cabinet-level federal agencies.
When asked why he decided to take on Barber to represent the folks in District 2, Wooten said, “I looked around at the other GOP candidates and didn’t see anyone viable. We’ve got Shelley Kais who’s background is in education and personal training, and Martha McSally who lost twice in this same race.” According to
“I commend her military service,” says Wooten. “But if she isn’t willing to tell voters where she stands on key issues, how can they make an educated decision at the polls?” According to public records, her mentor and primary financial backer is Senator Jon Kyl. “I don’t like how Kyl voted, and if he’s her mentor, I’m concerned she’ll ignore the root problems and just be another mouthpiece for the RINO contingency.”
“For me, I’m not afraid to say I love God, our constitution and our Judeo-Christian heritage. I’m not afraid to tell voters that we must secure and close the borders – which is a separate and distinct issue from amnesty. We must enforce immigration laws, completely repeal Obamacare, eliminate burdensome government agencies like the EPA, protect our military, and defend life.”
“Let’s face it, we’re in a war in America,” Wooten says. “A war of principals and convictions we cannot avoid. The time is now and either we turn back Obamacare and the economy, and reverse the damage that’s been caused by the liberal agenda, or we accept defeat and allow ourselves to become slaves to socialism.”
These races in Arizona aren’t unique. Take a look around your own community and state – and get involved – today. There’s no time to waste, because come November, if you haven’t gotten involved and helped candidates just like these, we may all be staring down the barrel of ruin. It is an absolute guarantee that if Arizona turns blue, Texas will be next, and then all will be lost.
My money’s on Andrew, Adam and Chuck – our next best hope for a return to a constitutional America.
