The grassroots patriotic group America Pack put on a debate for the Republican primary candidates for Arizona Attorney General Friday night, and of the five candidates who participated, none of them came across as moderates, to the pleasant surprise of the audience (Dawn Grove, who sounds very conservative, could not participate). The main issue championed by the five was border security, with election integrity a close second.
Their agendas mainly mirrored that of current AG Mark Brnovich, who is now running for U.S. Senate. Brnovich has been one of the most proactive AGs in the country pushing back on the Biden administration, filing tens of lawsuits over election integrity, border security, and other areas of overreach or inaction. Endorsed by both Mark Levin and Sean Hannity, the candidates sounded like they were trying to out-conservative him.
Arizona State Representative Diego Rodriguez (D-Phoenix), who is running for Arizona Attorney General, on Sunday seemingly defended left-wing activists who followed and harassed U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in a public restroom.
The individuals ambushed and followed Sinema while she was leaving her classroom at Arizona State University, where she teaches a class.
Arizona Attorney General contender Lacy Cooper on Tuesday called for reforms to the state’s ballot reform initiative, in order to provide “greater transparency.”
In a series of tweets, Cooper, who is vying for the GOP nomination to replace Attorney General Brnovich, outlined a need to implement a higher bar for potential laws.
In a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld on Thursday two Arizona rules that were implemented in an attempt to increase overall election security.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich celebrated the decision handed down by the court. “I am thankful the justices upheld states’ ability to pass and maintain commonsense election laws, at a time when our country needs it most.”
Former prosecutor and Border Patrol section chief for the U.S. Attorney’s Office Lacy Cooper has launched her campaign for Arizona Attorney General.
“I can’t sit back while the state I love is suffering so greatly from the consequences of the federal government’s failure to prioritize public safety,” Cooper explained as her reasoning for entering the race.
