Russell Pearce - East Valley Tribune: Candidates

Russell Pearce republican

"I have a long record of conservative success, including Constitutional Carry (2nd Amendment), expanded School Choice, Pro-Life and Pro-Family legislation. I sponsored the Marriage Amendment and co-authored the Arizona Civil Rights Initiative. I led the passage of the largest tax cuts in Arizona history and of Arizona's Jobs Bill, and as Senate President I produced a constitutionally balanced budget without gimmicks or tax increases. I was the author of SB1070, I earned the Golden Apple award for my work on education issues and I have been named "Hero of the Taxpayer." Remarkably, in spite of my real record, my opponent is running against me claiming I'm a "one note" candidate. He opposed SB1070 (before deleting his opposition from his website after announcing his campaign) and bragged about campaigning against Republicans who voted for it. He has contributed a lot of money to Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's campaign, and he has admitted being "embarrassed" by Arizona, saying he wants to run to improve our image. Friends, we should never be embarrassed for believing in the rule of law, in individual liberties, or in our Constitution. I AM PROUD OF ARIZONA and I ask for your vote and your prayers."
