Jean & I have received quite a number of inquiries through emails, Facebook, phone calls and personal conversations asking us to run in the 2016 race against Senator McCain, and now this posting of a 2012 Campaign Sign compels a response to all. The reasoning from most is we understand what it takes for a statewide race, and have a grasp of the issues with solutions, in addition to statewide name recognition and history of not caving into pressure from the Left side of the GOP.
Jean & I realize this in and of itself is a great honor to be thought of so highly by so many of our fellow Arizonans. We greatly appreciate the trust and confidence Our Friends and Supporters have shown in just asking the question.
Jean & I are discussing and praying about this, we believe Senator McCain needs to be replaced and we’d enjoy doing it, we have the time needed to mount such a challenge, however also realize many GOP power brokers don’t want us in this race as they prefer the Evil they know, vs. Truth they don’t want.
Those who’ve encouraged us know it will take a great deal of time and money to defeat Senator McCain, as he has been proven over the last 30yrs., and with those he’s supported as well.
We’ll be accepting all and any comments and suggestions. I’ve also been told some plan to line up the financial support needed for such an endeavor, we want to thank them for their effort and hope others will join them, as that’s what it will take to succeed in this endeavor.
We hope all of you will keep us in your thoughts and prayers as well, we won’t keep you waiting, the final key to making the decision is the ability to raise the Funds as without Funds no one will defeat Senator McCain’s AZ Political Machine.
God Bless You All;
Clair & Jean
