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.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
