Featured Guest Speakers: Dr. Kelli Ward, Dr. Paul Gosar & Sheriff Joe Arpaio

“As a doctor, former state senator and conservative activist, I share your frustration with our federal government, which has become ineffective and, in many cases, downright corrupt. I’m proud to have fought side by side with limited government advocates across the country to battle the Democrats’ progressive big government agenda. The solution to big government is not more government – and I will continue to argue that point to anyone who incorrectly tells me otherwise.

I know that I can do more to advance the ideas of freedom and liberty so eloquently described in our founding documents, which is why I’ve decided to run for the U.S. Senate.  Read more…

U.S. CONGRESSMAN DR. PAUL GOSAR D.D.S.Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S., is serving his fourth term in Congress as the Representative from Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District. First elected in 2010, he came to Congress with no prior political experience. Paul believes that the Constitution is the cornerstone of our Republic, and always pursues policies that allow for more individual liberty and less government involvement.

Dr. Gosar is focused on bringing jobs back to the district, fighting illegal immigration and securing the border, challenging the status quo and holding Washington bureaucrats accountable, cutting wasteful government spending, and ensuring that he is representing the interests of his constituents.

“We cannot sit idly by while our nation faces unprecedented challenges. President Trump needs my help in the Senate. He needs a conservative vote he can count on, and a voice in the Senate who knows firsthand the threats our nation is dealing with.

And, that’s why I’m running for United States Senate. I know this isn’t going to be easy, but I can’t in good conscience sit back in retirement knowing that my grandchildren will inherit a country worse off than the America I’ve spent my entire life defending.”

Known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” Joe Arpaio had a long and decorated career in law enforcement before being elected to Sheriff of Maricopa County. After serving in the U.S. Army and as a Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas, NV, police officer, Joe Arpaio went on to build a law enforcement career as a federal narcotics agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). He concluded his remarkable federal career as head of the DEA for Arizona. In 1992, Joe Arpaio successfully campaigned to become the Sheriff of Maricopa County, becoming the head of the nation’s third largest Sheriff’s Office which employs over 3400 people. He served an unprecedented six 4-year terms. Joe Arpaio and his wife Ava have been married for over 56 years and have two children and four grandchildren. Read more…
