Announcement - 23Jan19 - 1650hrs.

Dr. Bob Branch has been named to Doyel Shamley’s Executive Team as the new Executive Director of the AZ GOP when Doyel is elected. Today, Doyel Shamley, candidate for AZ GOP Chairman, has announced that Dr. Bob Branch, one of the most respected conservative Republican Leaders in Arizona, a Veteran, a man of integrity, former two-term LD13 chairman, major Trump supporter,  an amazing organizer, and a person of the highest intellect, has agreed to become the new Executive Director of the AZ GOP when Doyel is elected. Reaching out to Dr. Branch, asking why he agreed to be on Doyel Shamley’s executive team, Dr. Branch said “Doyel Shamley knows that the “Heart and Soul” of the Republican Party are the PCs, that they are the Party, that they are the grassroot activists, and that we need them for this historic event of taking back our State and making “Arizona Red Again.”

When Doyel Shamley is elected as our next AZ GOP Chairman, he has assured me that we will recruit, train, activate, and then empower our PCs. To make this State Red again, the PCs need to become a unified army!

As a decorated Combat Veteran and Military Leader, Doyel knows how to lead and unify the PC army.  As an AZ Business leader, Doyel knows how to do successful fundraising, and as a highly respected Republican leader, Doyel will help to unify our Republican Party. Under Doyel’s leadership, we will take back lost ground, and we will win back lost seats. Under Jonathan Lines, the current AZ GOP Chairman, we became a Purple State, this last election cycle, the AZ GOP lost one U.S. Senate Seat, and two US Congressional Seats, turning Arizona’s U.S. Congressional Delegation from “Red” to “Blue.” Arizona lost 40% of the State’s executive offices that Republicans held prior to the elections. Republicans were less than 3,000 votes from losing the AZ State House and from Arizona becoming a “Blue” State!!! Because of Lines, the Dems have all of the momentum. Doyel Shamley will turn the tide, and we Republicans will regain that momentum.

I am honored that Doyel, a person that I respect and admire, would ask me to assume this very important position; and when you Vote for Doyel on Saturday, I promise to not let the Republicans of this great State down. This is a very important election for our State, and Nation, so help us “Make Arizona Red Again;” elect Doyel as our new GOP Chairman.”

Special Remarks 1-20-19

Today, we mark a significant historical point in our country's history, the Republican party's history, politics, and government. This two-year anniversary for Trump, our President and Commander in Chief, is a significant point in time. It is a time for all to reflect on the last two years, and more importantly, to prepare for the next two years, and for a win so that our President can serve our great nation for another term in the White House.

Our President has been through tests and trials daily, as has the Republican party. Trump's successes on multiple fronts of his presidency, although of significant importance, must expand to correct the constant hurdles we face as a nation, a state, and a party. Largely, our President has had to go through his battles alone, and as the dismal mid-term elections pointed out, the Republican party, in many places, is either ineffective or refuses to help. This must stop immediately, and we must get on a path of victory across the board and heal from our mistakes and the damages that have been inflicted.

We must support the President's agenda, our national platform, and align ourselves with those that do, grow the numbers, and proceed forward to victory. We must enforce true tax reform across the states and nation, we must enforce a responsible and secure fiscal policy, we must continue to grow our economy to, again, take the lead on all fronts; and we must secure our nation through a strong military, and through a complete border defense strategy to include building "The Wall".

Going into the 2020 elections, it is evident that Republican candidates will be attacked mercilessly from the county level to the White House. We will not weather the storm without leadership, and that includes Republican leadership from the counties, to the states, and across this nation. We must have leadership and unity that supports our President, and we must move forward with the reigniting of all that is great in this, the greatest republic to ever exist in the history of man.

To our President, on this two-year anniversary, you have my support and my prayers, and you will have my continued support in 2020 and beyond.
