Gov. Palin’s AZ Candidates, and Incumbent Endorsements
Gov. Palin had endorsed Paul Gosar for AZ-4 in 2010 and re-endorsed him for 2012. He is one of three candidates she has endorsed for 2012 and their primaries are all August 28. Scholla had interviewed Kirk Adams and Jeff Flake on prior shows. See: SarahNET Radio Interviews Kirk Adams, AZ-5 on Bold Leadership and SarahNET Radio Interviews Palin-Endorsed Jeff Flake for US Senate, AZ.
Scholla said he finds Gov. Palin’s endorsements of incumbents most impressive because they’re a statement that the candidate has “a body of work” worthy of support “and that we need more of it.”
Small Business Owners Know How to Balance Budgets
Gosar said he is thrilled to receive Gov. Palin’s re-endorsement and that “in Arizona, there are two types of politicians: show ponies and work horses.” He is a dentist by trade and said his work in that field was very good preparation for being a Representative. Dentistry is a high-overhead business in which the practitioner must provide high-quality care, efficiently, and with good customer service, he said. ObamaCare does affect dentists as well, not just MDs, and Gosar said the legislation is not patient-friendly. As a dentist, Gosar is a small business owner.
“One of the things we have said in our first term in office, ‘as a business owner what’s wrong with making a profit?’ You have to make a profit in order to keep your doors open. Making a profit also shows that you have good customer service skills and that you have a skill that [your customers] really want and need,” Gosar said.
On Fast and Furious…
Gosar has been aggressively pursuing a fact-finding mission on the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal. He said Fast and Furious was “an egregious attempt on our Second Amendment rights,” and “it happened right in my backyard.” He also called it “part of the full frontal attack the administration has had on Arizona.” He said 1,400 guns remain unaccounted for. Gosar predicts they will be found at crime scenes, particularly in Arizona and the Southwest. He said that Fast and Furious must never happen again and those involved must be held accountable for it.
On Illegal Immigration…
Gosar has been fighting the unconstitutional DREAM Act, and said Congress, not the President should be setting and enforcing immigration policy. Arizona has been at the forefront and the front lines on the battles involving securing the border and stopping illegal immigration. During his term, Gosar has been working to get funding for securing the border.
Gosar’s Respect and Admiration of Gov. Palin
Scholla asked, “you have great respect for Gov. Palin, don’t you?”
“Absolutely. I think what she has done — is pure patriotic — in getting this country back — and we need more people like Gov. Palin, who are not afraid to put herself in harm’s way, based on where this country is heading and making sure that we turn it around.”
Scholla asked what Gov. Palin’s success in endorsing Gosar, Flake, and Adams would mean for change in Washington, D.C.
“Arizona is a very pivotal state,” Gosar said. The state had been redistricted and “having five seats available for the Democrats to take is not what we expected, and so her throwing her weight, and her notoriety, and her skillset behind folks here in Arizona means a lot to us. It is one of the battlegrounds.” Gosar said, that Nancy Pelosi must not again become Speaker of the House. He said Arizona will be pivotal in taking the Senate and in making sure Obama is not re-elected.
Why Undecided Voters Should Vote for Gosar
Scholla asked Gosar to “speak to the undecided voters” and tell them why they should vote for him.
“I’m one of those folks who have been very principled and understanding what people needed and have it done. What we’ve done is work together as a team. So many times, we do things as individuals, and we don’t get a lot accomplished. We were able to accomplish a lot based on what our constituency needs, getting people back to work in our state, and getting philosophical changes taken care of and done. We’ve got a proven track record of accomplishments, because we work with people, and we’ve got a proven track record of very fiscally conservative [actions] and getting things done. And people really see the benefit. They want to gravitate around somebody who really includes them, and makes them believe in winning,” Gosar said.
“You know, one of the things Gov. Palin is known for, and one of the reasons she has such a following is her honesty. People believe she speaks from the heart and says what she really believes. Perhaps an endorsement from her in a way is saying, ‘you know what? Dr. Paul Gosar same way. You can believe what this man is saying.’ And that’s something that unfortunately, we don’t see so much from politicians,” Scholla said.
Gov. Palin and Straight Talk
“Straight-talking — that’s what you love so much about Gov. Palin. She means what she says and she says what she means. And I think that’s a breath of fresh air. And that’s what we’ve come to the table with. Saying, ‘you know, I’m not pretty. I’m not great at how I look at things, but boy I’ll tell you what: we get things done. And that’s what counts in a winner.’ I think that’s what Gov. Palin has given us the mantra for. ‘Find out what’s your expertise, tell us how you can get things done, and let’s work together as a team to get this country back,’” Gosar said.
Gosar Invites Voters to Call Him Personally…
His website is http://www.gosar4congress.com. He also invited undecided voters to contact him directly on his cell phone at 928-853-6225. “We’d love to hear from you; love to hear your concerns and ideas. It’s a two-way street. Those are the things we want to see, and if you like what you see from us, we would love for you tell your neighbors and friends, because we need everybody to work together to win in this election cycle,” he said.
Scholla called on listeners to support Gosar, Flake and Adams, as well as American Grizzlies United candidates Ben Quayle and Gabriela Saucedo Mercer. See: Rep. Quayle (R-AZ) Talks SCOTUS ObamaCare Ruling on SarahNET Radio and
