The attack on the separation of church and state is on the ballot

And it's an incredibly dangerous threat to our country   Hi friend, Earlier this week Marjorie Taylor Greene said that the recent earthquake in New Jersey and the solar eclipse were "God sending America strong signs to tell us to repent." This is, simply, another example of Chri…

EMERGENCY MESSAGE: My State's Supreme Court just outlawed virtually all abortions

And why my race is so vitally important in this fight for basic human rights   Hi friend, In an utterly stunning and draconian decision, the Arizona Supreme Court just outlawed virtually all abortions in my State.  This ruling is based on an 1864 law before Arizona was even a S…

Here are some of his "Handmaid's Tale" positions   Hi friend, My opponent, MAGA GOP extremist David Schweikert, has time and again voted for bills that are downright dangerous to women.  Here are just some of his positions that are an affront not only to women but to anyone who…

This is about so much more than democracy

What is this election really about?   Hi friend, I've highlighted the fact that our democracy is in grave peril.  And that is fundamentally true.  But this election is about something even bigger — the very nature of who we want to be as a nation.  Our choices could not be more …

My opponent just signed onto the new and extreme GOP budget

This is how it would attack Social Security, Medicare and women's rights   Hi friend, As a member of the House Republican Study Committee, my MAGA opponent, David Schweikert, just joined over 170 radical Republicans to support that party's budget for next year.  It includes: 1) …

What I've learned so far after personally knocking on 11,000 doors

The answers might surprise you.   Hi friend, I've now personally knocked on over 11,000 doors since starting this campaign.  I can assure you, my MAGA extremist GOP opponent, David Schweikert will not outwork me.   What I can tell you is that, almost universally, the voters I've…

Trump's autocratic friends and the lessons he's learned from them

This is how democracy dies and why my race is so important.   Hi friend, Even Democrats fight every day for our country, Donald Trump meets with autocratic pals like Victor Orbán of Hungary.  He continues to praise his dictator friends including Orbán, Xi Jinping of China, Tayy…

Biden's speech and going on offense.   John, I've been waiting for this for months! In Thursday night's State of the Union address Joe Biden showed everyone that: 1) He's a fighter 2) He's got a great story to tell about the accomplishments of his administration, and 3) We shoul…

Service has been my life

It's time to change who we send to Congress   John, Unfortunately, we keep sending the same kind of people to Congress and then we expect different results.  I've spent my life in service to others and its that commitment that's at the heart of my campaign to put in place a gove…

Help me win at the ballot box

Because we may not win at the witness box   John, I'd like to tell you about the absolutely critical nature of my congressional race:  1) It was the 6th closest congressional race in 2022 (won by only 3,000 votes). 2) It's one of only 18 congressional seats Biden won in 2020 tha…

Now they're coming after embryos

What does an utterly relentless campaign look like?

The facts about immigration

It's not what you think, and my campaign is going to tell the truth   John, Frankly, I'm sick and tired of Republicans weaponizing and lying about immigration and its impact to our country. The GOP won't even back an immigration bill they basically wrote!  Yes, we need comprens…

How is Putin and my Congressional campaign tied together?

It's actually very clear.   Hi friend, It might not seem entirely clear why a completely flippable congressional race in AZ is so closely tied to Putin.  But it is.   While the Senate just passed a bill to provide aid to Ukraine, House Speaker and MAGA extremist Mike Johnson ha…

My Campaign for decency and humanity

Why is my race SO important - its one of the Biden 18!

Every race matters but some are, in fact, more crucial   John, While there are 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives some are clearly more winnable than others.  And if we want Hakeem Jeffries to be the next Speaker we really need to pay attention to the "Biden" 18. Th…

Nikki Haley's answer on slavery is disgusting
