We are having our 71st annual picnic in the beautiful and cool Hualapai Mountains by Kingman on Saturday, Aug.. 15 from 10 AM TO 4 PM. The cost is only $20 for a great day in the mountains with friends. We also have raffle tickets for an AR 15 at $5 each or 5 tickets for $20. Exercise your 2nd amendment rights with a great weapon. Would it be possible to announce it on your show and also add it to your web site.
Besides having our normal cadre of AZ elected officials, we are having a solid conservative from the great state of Texas as our keynote speaker. As you know Texas has snubbed the Federal Common Core program.
Texas is the 12th largest economy in the WORLD. It is amazing what a state can do when it tells the Feds to keep their nose out of their business. Below is a picture of our keynote speaker and some info on how he got elected to Congress.
A mid-decade redistricting made the 1st District significantly more Republican than its predecessor. Tyler, which had long anchored the 4th District, was shifted to the 1st District. In the 2004 Republican primary, Gohmert defeated State Representative Wayne Christian of Center, Texas. He then defeated Democratic incumbent 1st District Congressman Max Sandlin with 61 percent of the vote, becoming the first Republican since Reconstruction to represent northeast Texas.
Gohmert has never faced another contest even that close, and has been reelected five times. In 2006, he won his second term by defeating Democrat Roger L. Owen, a swimming pool builder from Hallsville, Texas. He faced no major party opposition in 2008 (facing only an independent) and 2010 (facing only a Libertarian).
In November 2012, Gohmert was elected to his fifth term with 182,621 votes (71.7 percent) to Democrat Shirley J. McKellar’s 67,758 (26.6 percent).
