CD8 Special Election Update

CD8 Special Election Update

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has approved the Election plan of Recorder Fontes for the CD8 Special Election to fill the seat of Rep. Trent Franks.

If you or your friends or family live in CD8, please encourage them STRONGLY to vote in BOTH the primary on February 27th, AND the General Election to fill this seat on April 24th.


CD8 includes:
Anthem, Goodyear, Peoria, Surprise, El Mirage, Lichfield Park, Sun City, Youngtown, Glendale, New River, Sun City West, and Phoenix (North of Pinnacle Peak Rd, West of I17)

We have had very low GOP voter turnout in Special Elections nationwide over the past few months. Last month the GOP lost the WI SD10 race with a drop from 60,000 GOP voters turning out in ’16, to just 9,000 GOP voters turning out in January, resulting in the loss of the seat.

The Maricopa County Recorder expects very low turnout in this election:
CD8 Election Facts
There are 454,199 registered voters in CD8.
Based on historical data we anticipate 4% of registered voters to vote at the polls on Election Day, which is approximately 18,000 voters total. This number helped determine the number of polling locations.
A standard polling location can reasonably accommodate 2,500-3,000 voters.
There are currently 55 proposed polling Locations in CD8.

Trump DOJ requests Citizenship Question on Census ‘ to help enforce Voting Rights Act’

Trump DOJ requests Citizenship Question on Census ‘ to help enforce Voting Rights Act’

Oh you clever clever Trump appointees..

Why yes, now that you mention it, if illegals are voting, their votes are diluting the votes of citizens, including minorities.

So heck yeah it is a violation of the Voting Rights Act.

I look forward to reading the Amicus Brief the ACLU will surely file to support Team Trump’s efforts to preserve the VRA protections for minority citizens, whose votes are being diluted by illegals voting.


From The Hill:

The Department of Justice is asking the Census Bureau if a question on citizenship status could be added to 2020 census forms, according to a letter first reported by ProPublica on Friday. The DOJ letter, dated Dec. 12, said including a question on citizenship would allow the department to bette

What the Left has planned for Elections for 2018

What the Left has planned for Elections for 2018

The Left has been very busy planning for 2018 and 2020.

Luckily for us, Hillary Clinton cannot miss an opportunity to try to keep her name alive in the party for 2020 (hubris, it’s what’s for dinner) and she has given us a window into their activities that we might otherwise have missed.

She tweeted out links to the following election related activities by the left nationwide:

  • The organizers at @iVoteFund worked with partners on the ground to get automatic voter registration on the ballot in Nevada.

    450 brand-new civic leaders and activists attended the very first @ArenaSummit — and they’re on track to train 5,000 people by the end of 2018.

    At @alliance4youth, young people are using local organizing to address economic inequality, attacks on voting rights, and more.

    The team at @latinovictoryus is working to elect more Latino candidates at every level of government.

    More than 400 students and leaders met last month at the @votolatino Power Summit to share resources and tools for national advocacy.

    And with the help of @collectivepac, 23 African-American candidates have been elected to local, state, and federal offices since August 2016.

    Along with @IndivisibleTeam, @ColorOfChange, @EmergeAmerica, @swingleft, and @runforsomething, I know these groups will continue to do the incredible work of making our democracy stronger in 2018, and I’m proud to be on their team.

    Thank you to everyone who has donated to Onward Together in our first year — we’re only able to support these great groups because of you. Let’s do even more in 2018. Onward!

Yes Hillary, onward into the penitentiary for you, onward into irrelevance. The country has finally MOVED ON from Clinton and Obama and we have been and will continue to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN with President Donald J. Trump!!!

In order to MAGA, we need to be AWARE of the ongoing activities of the left in the Election Integrity arena, and we need to GET ACTIVE to ensure nothing like what we see on this list is enacted here in Arizona.

To that end, I will be posting on all the election related bills coming out of our legislature, and I will also have a write up on the Democrat running against SoS Michele Reagan.

Preview: He is an absolute nightmare, supports Automatic Voter Registration and compares Voter ID laws to slavery.

We also need to stay active and AWARE as these groups roll out their plans and prepare the battlespace for 2018, which is the left’s test run for 2020.

In recent happenings:

The Maricopa County Recorder has sent out a call for all Deputy Registrars to register voters for the CD8 election.


Let’s pick the strongest candidate we have, get through our primary, and then throw everything we have behind whomever emerges the victor on the GOP side.

We absolutely cannot afford to lose ANY seat or ANY office as we head into 2020.

Thank you for being part of preserving Election Integrity. You are all a blessing.

Together, we can help ourselves, our family, our country and President Trump by preserving the RED state of Arizona for 2018, 2020 and hopefully forever.
