Just when Arizona finally had a resolution to its contentious Senate race between Republican Martha McSally and the eventual victor, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, there’s another race for the other seat that’s already heating up. But this time, only one vote counts: Governor Doug Ducey’s.
Senator Jon Kyl, who took over the Senate vacancy left when Senator John McCain died earlier this year, declared he would only fill the role until January, 2019. That puts the responsibility of filling the seat to the Governor who, by state law, must choose a Republican since McCain was a Republican.
Some have speculated that McSally will get another shot at the Senate after losing her election, but that seems unlikely at this point. Though her race was close, she is still a Republican who lost to a far-left Democratic Socialist. That can’t sit well with Republicans in a red state.
Others have pointed to Kelli Ward, who tried to take the seat from Senator McCain in the 2016 primaries. Ward, a conservative, lost the primary this year to McSally after failing to get President Trump’s endorsement after former sheriff Joe Arpaio entered the race. The two conservatives split the vote, but even combined they were outpaced by the moderate McSally.
The irony in all this is that Establishment Republicans hand-picked McSally because they thought Ward or Arpaio couldn’t win even in the red state of Arizona. Their wisdom may have cost them a seat that should have been safely held by the GOP.
Whoever Ducey chooses, it will only be less than two years. Arizona law says the official replacement must run in the next election, which is 2020. Then, the seat’s election comes up again in 2022. All of this means it’s conceivable four different people can fill the seat during it’s single Senate term.
If there’s one thing we learned with the 2018 election, it’s that polarizing works. Moderates generally lost tight races and those further to the right or left generally won.
Whoever Ducey picks, it should be a conservative. Arizona has been trying to hold the center aisle for too long. Don’t make the same mistake the AZGOP made by backing a moderate. Be bold, Governor.
Gifts for Patriots: Forget All the Woke Corporate Retail Gifts This Year
Let me put the disclaimer up front. I’m a patriot. This site believes in promoting patriotic companies, supporting America-First ideas, and disseminating the truthful news that everyone in this nation needs to read or hear. To that end, it makes sense that the companies we allow to sponsor us are patriotic, America-First, and truth-embracing organizations.
Now for the other disclaimer. Buying from the three companies listed below using our promo codes helps us tremendously. The offers we give our readers access to are the best offers available; even using Mike Lindell’s promo code gives the same discount as using promo code “NOQ.”
We know there are many conservative sites who offer similar or even identical promos. We are not the biggest, not by a longshot, but we try very hard to provide excellent coverage of the most important topics to patriots. We do it unflinchingly and often at great sacrifice; there’s a reason you won’t find Google ads or Facebook buttons on our site. We cannot rail against Big Tech if we’re taking money from them or promoting their products. I’m not going to throw stones at other conservative news outlets who are beholden to Google or Facebook. We have our own sins. Nevertheless, you know when you use our promo codes you’re making an impact by supporting an honest style of delivering America-First news and commentary.
With that said, our sponsors have gifts available for all price ranges.
For the very special someone needing a very special gift, contact Our Gold Guy. Imagine their surprise when they see silver or gold coins in their stocking! Or, you can treat yourself to the ultimate hedge in the Biden economy. As the supply chain crumbles, inflation skyrockets, and the other investments lose momentum, precious metals make for the perfect protection. Be sure to tell them JD Rucker sent you!
At $499, the Freedom Phone will help you or someone you love break free from the Apple/Google duopoly in the smartphone world. With promo code “MAGA,” you’ll save $50. It’s well worth the peace of mind of having a completely uncensored device with an app store that cannot be canceled.
Our good friends at MyPillow have gifts ranging from stocking stuffers to high end bedding. You can knock out a lot of Christmas shopping with one stop at their website, and you’ll get maximum savings on each product you order by using promo code “NOQ.”
Lastly, if you’d like to include us on your Christmas list, we’d LOVE if you sponsored us. Donations go directly towards helping us disseminate important articles and podcasts to the nation.
As patriots, we must stand up for what we believe in. That means we slow or completely eliminate our expenditures with companies who hate us for our ideology. Our sponsors are all proud to support the America-First agenda, which is why we allow them on our pages. Like I said, you won’t find Google ads here.
