U.S. Senator John McCain Endorses Randy Graf for Congress

U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) today announced his endorsement of Randy Graf, former member of the Arizona House of Representatives, as the next Congressional representative from Arizona’s 8th district.

”Randy Graf’s record as a state representative has demonstrated his commitment to the values important to the people of Arizona,” McCain said. “His voting record on issues such as supporting our military, reducing taxes, and reigning in election and welfare fraud bodes well for his future in the U.S. Congress. I urge the voters of the 8th district to support him on November 7th. It would be a pleasure to work with him in Washington.”

Randy Graf calls Senator McCain’s endorsement “a great honor.”

“John McCain has served this nation with amazing courage and great dignity,” Graf said. “He is a shining example of public service. Senator McCain has always been driven by courage and duty, never by self-gain. I am grateful for his expression of faith in me.”

McCain’s unwavering support of U.S. military troops is one of several key election issues important to both men. “The war on terror, which is being fought not just in Iraq but in many places around the globe, is a great challenge for our men and women in uniform,” says Graf. “This is no time to abandon them. I share John McCain’s determination to provide them with everything they need in this struggle against terrorism.”

Latest Polling News Confirms Randy’s Momentum!

The latest polling released on October 4 shows that Randy continues to rapidly close the gap with Gabrielle Giffords. A poll released by the Giffords campaign on September 20 showed Giffords up by 19 points with 54 percent of the vote. Four days later, the Arizona Daily Star released a poll showing that Giffords lead had been cut to 12 points, and that Gabby’s support had dropped to 48%. Now, in the latest polling conducted by Reuters and Zogby Intl., Randy has cut Giffords lead to single digits!

The latest polling shows Randy down only 8 points at 45% - 37%. As voters have gotten to know Gabby’s liberal voting record, her support has continued to slip away. The Reuters/Zogby poll has a margin of error of up to 4.5%, so Randy could actually be within 3.5 points of Giffords. Before any one-on-one debates between Randy and Giffords have begun, the momentum has clearly swung behind Randy. But this good news does not mean that Graf supporters can now rest. As Graf campaign manager R.T. Gregg stated after seeing the latest polls, “We must continue to work hard to ensure victory in November.”

Graf Calls On Giffords to Take a Stand on Proposition 103

(Tucson, AZ) Randy Graf, the Republican nominee to replace retiring US Congressman Jim Kolbe, has challenged his opponent, Gabrielle Giffords to announce her position on Proposition 103, a referendum that would declare English as the official language of Arizona.

This challenge comes in response to Giffords’ appearance before military veterans and their spouses last week. The Democratic nominee for CD8 was asked, “Why can’t you make a 10-word law? English is the language of the United States of America.” Giffords avoided a direct answer by saying, “we don’t do enough to make sure people speak not just English, but proper English.”

Graf Supports Push for Children's Hospital in Southern Arizona

(Tucson, AZ) Randy Graf, the Republican nominee to replace retiring US Congressman Jim Kolbe, stated his strong support today for an effort to bring a children’s hospital to Southern Arizona. Currently, the Phoenix area is the only part of the state with children’s hospitals that deal with many of the state’s child-specific medical emergencies. Consequently, many of southern Arizona’s children must be rushed to Phoenix by ambulance or Medevac when facing emergency and long-term healthcare crises.

To solve this child healthcare deficiency, an effort is taking place to bring a full-service children’s hospital to the Tucson area funded solely through private donations. Randy Graf is excited by the possibility of a Children’s Hospital here to serve his own grandson and other children in times of need. Graf stated: “We all dread the thought of having to bring our children to the hospital for emergency care, but it will be very comforting to know that in times of need, we have the facilities right here in our community to help our children during medical emergencies.”

By Daniel Scarpinato
Arizona Daily Star
Tucson, Arizona | Published: 09.17.2006

Fresh off a plane from Washington, D.C., Congressional District 8 candidate Randy Graf was greeted by about 50 supporters Saturday at Tucson International Airport, bolstered, he said, by financial and moral support from national-level Republicans.
Surrounded by flowers, American flags and balloons, Graf told the crowd "everyone's on board," and said fellow party members, including Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, "impressed on me how important this seat is."
Graf returns having raised more than $20,000 to take on Democrat Gabrielle Giffords, with another $100,000 pledged, his campaign says.
"We have been blessed to be able to pull everything together here, and within 48 hours we had calls from our entire congressional delegation
