Today marks a new beginning for the Arizona Republican Party. Small businessman Robert Graham was elected Chairman with 70 percent of the vote. It’s the first “landslide” for Party Chairman in a decade.
He built a very diverse coalition of support, earning the endorsement of Congressman Trent Franks, (and having support of other delegation members) while at the same time getting endorsements from former Maricopa County GOP Chairman Rob Haney, former Senate President Russell Pearce and former state GOP Chairman Randy Pullen.
This is welcome news for the Arizona GOP – an incoming chairman who has broad support from the grassroots and respect among the business community. It reflects what the Republican Party is all about – hard working, freedom-loving people coming together to advance liberty by fighting against big government and corrupt big business cronies (think GE, Solyndra, GM, Goldman Sachs, etc.)
Graham is a successful small businessman who can relate to every element of the Republican Party. His leadership will position the party to be in great shape going into the 2014 elections.
