PHOENIX, Arizona – Arizona Republican Senate candidate Jim Lamon said he is the veteran to take down Mark Kelly in the Senate race by demonstrating real American work and action.
“In Arizona, there’s a very large veterans’ population, retired, active-duty, people associated with the military here. Kelly’s a veteran. You got to start with that. You darn well better be a veteran to go against him. Number two, you got a situation where this guy has gone so far left, he ran as a moderate, but you need someone to hold him accountable. Someone who has not just talked about what they’re going to do. Somebody who’s got accomplishments. Somebody who’s built businesses. So, you can show that contrast to what he is and what America is. This guy’s gone hard left, hard Marxist, voting 100% with [Chuck] Schumer and those guys. This is, in my case, being able to contrast that. Not with talk. But with actual stuff to show what real work looks like,” Lamon said in an interview with the Arizona Sun Times.
FreedomWorks’ grassroots director Merissa Hamilton told The Arizona Sun Times the free-market-focused organization will launch a new program leading up to the general election that will “give the grassroots access to the tools that big organizations normally have and they would only get access to if they were a staff member of that big organization.”
“This is going to empower the grassroots in ways we’ve never had access to before, and anyone that wants to be able to be empowered within their local neighborhood, this is the time to join FreedomWorks and take action.”
Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) released a new ad that will air in Phoenix and Tucson, claiming to be “taking on his own party” to combat inflation.
Kelly, a self-proclaimed individual focused on “independent leadership,” acknowledged the spike in consumer prices under President Joe Biden.
U.S. Senate Jim Lamon detailed that he was “disappointed” in former President Donald Trump’s decision to endorse his GOP opponent Blake Masters.
Lamon claimed he had done more to advance Trump’s “America First” agenda.
A new poll from a Super PAC supporting Blake Masters showed the venture capitalist taking the lead in the GOP race for U.S. Senate.
The survey, completed by former President Donald Trump’s former pollster Tony Fabrizio, awarded Masters 22 percent.
Blake Masters, a Republican running to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate, threatened to take legal action over a news article on his stance on contraception.
According to Masters, the Arizona Mirror published a piece with “defamatory claims” that implied Masters supports banning contraception.
Former President Donald Trump slammed Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich for his actions relating to the 2020 election and signaled his opposition to Brnovich’s run to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate.
According to Trump, Brnovich’s lack of results is proof he is “going to kick the can down the road” and “stay in that middle path of non-controversy.”
Arizona Republican Blake Masters picked up an endorsement on Thursday from the Club for Growth PAC, an outside group that supports conservatives in key elections across the country.
The support from the group will likely provide Masters outside funding in an attempt to defeat his GOP contender and, potentially, Democrat Senator Mark Kelly.
U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters raised more money directly from supporters than other Republican challengers in the final quarter of 2021, according to financial disclosures filed to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC).
Masters, who has not self-funded to the degree of other candidates, took in approximately $1.3 million from donors, the only GOP candidate to haul in at least $1 million from outside sources.
Blake Masters, a Peter Thiel confidant and candidate for U.S. Senate, will speak on Saturday at the Phoenix rally featuring former President Donald Trump.
The “Rally to Protect Our Elections” is meant to highlight the ongoing efforts by Arizona state senators to conduct a forensic audit of ballots to ensure their integrity.
