The AZGOP Executive Committee has formally censured Rusty Bowers. He is a Democrat in Democratic clothing. In other words, he does not even bother to try to hide who he is. He has supported Democratic initiatives such as gender identity, a $1 billion dollar Democratic school spending program (Only alleged Republican to do so), refused to reinstate the Pledge of Allegiance in schools, supports open borders, and rejected voter integrity laws.
Bowers is running for Arizona Senate after fighting against election integrity and stabbing Arizona in the back because he is term-limited out of the Arizona House. Trump has endorsed David Farnsworth against Bowers for a state Senate seat.
This is a critical race because “Bowers is now running for the State Senate to continue his ‘con job’ against the People of Arizona,” said President Trump.
In a previous endorsement of Farnsworth, President Trump said that David Farnsworth “has fought tirelessly on the 2020 Presidential Election Fraud Scandal, the open and poisonous Southern Border, for our totally under siege Second Amendment” President Trump continued, “David Farnsworth will get rid of the stench of Rusty Bowers and his crew of RINOs who are systematically destroying everything that Arizona stands for.”
Bowers told NBC that it would be a miracle for him to win the coming primary election. That is not true. Without election integrity and with Democratic leadership support, he can win no matter what the voters want.
Arizona Family reported:
The Arizona GOP executive committee censured House Speaker Rusty Bowers on Tuesday night, stating he has “lost the confidence of a majority of Republican party leaders.” Dr. Kelli Ward, Chairwoman of the Arizona GOP, confirmed the censure via Twitter. “The AZGOP Executive Committee has formally censured Rusty Bowers tonight — he is no longer a Republican in good standing & we call on Republicans to replace him at the ballot box in the August primary,” tweeted Ward.
The GOP press release highlighted some bills Bowers had backed that Republicans say went against his party. Republicans had pushed HB 2294, which stated only two genders should be named on all government documents, whereas Bowers was the sole Republican who opposed the bill. The GOP also said in the release that Bowers had joined Democrats to sponsor a $1 billion education spending bill and also killed a bill to reinstate the Pledge of Allegiance in Arizona schools permanently.
“Bowers has demonstrated he is unfit to serve the platform of the Republican Party and will of the voter of the Republican Party of Arizona,” read the release.
Bowers also testified before the Jan. 6 subcommittee back in June, saying he was pressured to overturn the election results. In the testimony, Bowers said former president Donald Trump called him and proposed to have the state replace its electors for Joe Biden with those favoring him. Bowers told the committee he wanted to see evidence of voter fraud, which he said Trump’s team never showed.
No proof? Rusty Bowers is a liar. A mountain of proof has been laid out, he just chose to ignore it and stick with his Democrat buddies.
