Another Cheap Labor Express stooge.

As long as the Mormon church wants open borders they won’t vote for America.

I’d rather have McSally than Adams if Adams is Mormon. Is Adams Mormon like Romney, Flake, and Salmon, are Mormon?

Well; yes and no. No if you don't live in AZ but yes if you do. You can write a letter to the Governor and in 2020 you get to vote for the next senator.

Does Ducey care about the letters? Not if he only gets a small amount of them but yes if they start numbering in the thousands. Every politician knows for every one letter they get, especially one sent through the USPS, there are hundreds more who share the same opinion but are too lazy/busy/whatever to send one in. Those emails and online correspondence matter too. Just not as much as a physical one.

Adams was first elected to the Arizona legislature in 2006. During his tenure in the State House, Adams endorsed legislation which resulted in the largest permanent tax cut in Arizona history. As Speaker, Adams took on public-employee unions, authoring legislation to reform Arizona’s pension system for public employees by raising the retirement age, eliminating cost of living adjustments, preventing employees from receiving a pension while working, reducing benefits for elected officials and requiring police officers, firefighters, elected officials and corrections employees pay more for their pensions. Adams opted out of the elected officials retirement plan, earning him recognition from the National Taxpayers Union.

As Speaker, Adams supported Arizona’s immigration reform bill and solicited outside funding to defend the measure in court.

"No Mormons."

Flake and Mitt have ruined the Brand.

Mormon Republicans haven’t had a good track record lately.

McSally lost because she wasn't Mormon and Sinema used to be, long ago. That was good enough for the otherwise Republican-supporting Mormon base. Adams could probably hold the seat for the GOP for decades.

Adams would be a disaster. As would McRINO.

Mormons can be very "Middle of the road."

He’ll probably get the position as he is close to Ducey.

I’d still go for Paul Gosar (CD-4). Can’t get more conservative than him and the person who succeeds him will almost certainly be a Republican (+21).
