Mark Finchem is basically, I would call him the cowboy in this race. He’s plainspoken, he’s hard hitting, and he knows how to throw a rhetorical punch.Dinesh D’Souza
The midterms are right around the corner, not many weeks away, really. And, at this point, things are looking really good for the GOP. Really good on the House, and I would say pretty good for the Senate.
Now, one of the themes that the left has been stressing is “election deniers” are on the ballot. There have been various attempts to count the number of so-called election deniers on the ballot. I think the website, FiveThirtyEight said 60% of Republicans who are running are election deniers. I mean, all this means is that the themes of “2000 Mules” and concerns about the 2020 election have become quite mainstream in the Republican party. And not only in the Republican Party. If you’ve seen surveys by Rasmussen and others, you’ve seen that there are fair number of Independents and Democrats who have doubts, questions, and in some cases outright skepticism about the 2020 election.
Now, Arizona in particular has been excoriated by the left for rampant election denialism, which is to say that all the four main candidates, Blake Masters for the Senate, Kari Lake for Governor, Abe Hamadeh for Attorney General, and Mark Finchem for Secretary of State, have all been, you may say, skeptics about 2020. In general, champions of the movie, “2000 Mules.” In the case of Kari, of course, attends the screening of “2000 Mules,” has been speaking outspokenly about it. So, by the way, has Hamadeh and Finchem. Recently, when there was a controversy involving Brnovich, the existing and outgoing attorney general, Finchem weighed in and basically goes, Listen, I side with True the Vote over Brnovich on this one.
So, you have, at least from my point of view, a kind of dream team in Arizona. And what I want to stress about this dream team — because I think it’s kind of a model for the GOP — is first of all, very attractive candidates. Candidates who have done things with their life.
Think of it. Blake Masters has been kind of an internet pioneer and guru who’s been very close to Peter Thiel, who’s the founder of PayPal.
And then you have Kari Lake, who is a newscaster and uses that kind of, you may call it subdued eloquence, to be able to really smack down critics on the left and in the media.
And then of course, Mark Finchem is basically, I would call him the cowboy in this race. He’s plainspoken, he’s hard hitting, and he knows how to throw a rhetorical punch.
And Hamadeh is the son of an immigrant, he is non-white. He is well-spoken, well-educated, talks about the importance of drawing young people over to the Republican Party. He’s cool.
