Arizona Key Swing Independent Voters Give Tom Horne A Thumbs Down For Attorney General In 2014
Phoenix, AZ -- Arizona attorney general (AG) Tom Horne is facing new accusations that he is playing fast and loose with campaign rules according to the Arizona Republic. A staffer recently quit Horne's office and is accusing the Republican AG of using his office staffers as campaign workers. Where there is smoke there is fire, and leaders of SOMOS INDEPENDENTS (a woman-led organization of key swing independent voters) cannot support Horne for attorney general in light of what appears to be constant charges related to campaign finance violations.
Independent voters are now the biggest voting bloc in Arizona, and as an independent voter organization we must pluck out extremism and corruption with regard to public officials who are paid by Arizona tax payers. The Arizona Republican Party voters must simply ask themselves if they can afford to support candidates like Tom Horne in the Republican primary election. Indeed, the Republican Party ought to learn the lessons from the State of Ohio (a key Presidential election state) when Ohio citizens ousted extreme Tea Party candidates.
Tom Horne's extremism is embraced by other extremists who have ruined the Republican image with:
Kris Kobach: Who has shown himself to be nothing more than an ambitious politician with a dangerous and radical vision of America. We believe Kobach hurts the GOP with millennial voters who identify themselves more and more as independent voters. Kobach supports restrictive voting rights.
Russell Pearce: Who was ousted by a moderate Republican via Jerry Lewis. Pearce's radical agenda caused more Republicans voters to flee the Party to become independent voters.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Who suffered a loss when U.S. District Court Judge Murray Snow ruled that he violated constitutional rights of thousands of Chicanos and Latinos.
Steven Seagal: Who recently praised Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him “one of the great living world leaders,” even though former Soviet leader Gorbachev said Putin is more communist than he was in leading their country.
It would be a good idea for Seagal to continue to accept movie entertainment roles as a villain, rather than become a failing political opportunist.
The common denominator between the above politicians and/or entertainers is the sinking ship they are all on. Demographics, millennial voters, shifting political paradigms continue to be the measuring stick of our future. The aforementioned hurts (not helps) the GOP. The independent voters and people of Arizona are tired of the political circus and we encourage plucking out the cancers of our state – and it begins with plucking out Tom Horne for AG in 2014.
Somos Independents is a national group of key swing independent registered Independent women voters who support bipartisanship in our government that will help solve tough issues. We are organizing the growing independent registered voter group by getting out the vote with millennial voters, and we realize college-aged students prefer registering themselves as independents rather than choosing a major political party. We believe in putting people before Party politics. Co-founders include a former Republican and a former Democratic voter.
