Letter: Boehner should let Arizonans pick their own candidates


Memo to Washington: Arizonans don't need your help!

On Saturday, March 29, U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner attended a fund-raiser in Marana, Ariz., in support of Andy Tobin (CD1) and Martha McSally (CD2). Openly playing favorites before Arizona voters have an opportunity to select their nominees is exceedingly troubling and totally inappropriate.

Arizona voters should be able to decide who their candidates are in contested Congressional primary elections without interference from Washington insiders.

Arizona voters are capable of vetting and selecting candidates to represent Arizona's Congressional Districts and do not need Washington's help. Speaker Boehner, let Arizona voters pick their own candidates!

Once Arizona voters have selected their Congressional primary candidates, Speaker Boehner should come to Arizona and help Republicans win general elections in Congressional Districts 1, 2, and 9. GOP intra-party meddling and implied endorsements by establishment elites will not be forgotten in Arizona's August primaries.

Until then, Speaker Boehner should let Arizona voters do what's right for Arizona.

are free to visit the fine state of Arizona. We
folks of Arizona recognize freedom of speech,
freedom of association,...,etc.

Now, let us focus on getting "Full Voting Rights"
to every voter. We don't have these rights yet.

Thanks and Good Luck,

I'm NO fan of the Lorax (little orange guy that whines alot), but it was a fundraiser - Obama does them all the time for his favors. Why is this different?
I agree the influence peddling is a bad thing - we need term limits, but a letter after a name should not be how we react to it D = dumb it down, R = ramp it up.
