Arizona Momentum is Top-10 Strong

Arizona Momentum is Top-10 Strong

While Democrats continue to play divisional politics, we Republicans are showing real leadership. In large part due to the public policy decisions, Arizona now ranks #5 for economic momentum, and in the Top 10 for personal income growth, employment growth and population growth.
