AZGOP Stands With Trump

Statement From AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham Supporting Donald Trump
“Let him who is without sin, cast the first stone.”
PHOENIX - This afternoon Chairman Robert Graham of the Arizona Republican Party released the following statement in support of Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump.

“Let him who is without sin, cast the first stone.”  As Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party and Executive Board Member of the Republican National Committee it is important to me to share my thoughts regarding Donald J. Trump.

Do you regret anything in your past? There is no explicable way to defend Donald Trump’s comments and their aggressive nature towards women from more than a decade ago…nor has he asked us to defend him. Donald Trump has sincerely expressed his regret and has apologized for his actions.

We understand when the leftist media condemns Republican candidates with bias. However, it is hard to understand why some are willing to surrender the principles and values we espouse as conservatives well-knowing that Hillary Clinton, if President, will systematically condemn our freedoms.

Leadership is more than stopping political mail, not campaigning for someone or making statements condemning a person’s comments made nearly a dozen years before--Leadership is making the tough decisions, digging in and sacrificing for beliefs and ideas greater than one person.

Donald Trump is a fighter and showed us all the fight that it will take to get our nation back on track. From lowering taxes, to protecting Americans, to replacing Obamacare -- his plans are consistent with what our country needs and our citizens are longing for.

Secretary Clinton once again showed why she is part of the problem we have in America. Her answers were the same tired and unproductive government based solutions that she has talked a lot about over the last 30 years, but done very little to change.

Whether the image is Donald Trump surprised by a loving embrace from a family who lost their home in Louisiana or when he stands in front of thousands of supporters promising to make America great again...his love of nation and his love of the people of our nation is clear.

In the end, I will not condemn or abandon a man that has every right to forgiveness as I do.  Nor will I give up on the people of this great nation.  We must lead. It is my responsibility, as a member of the Republican National Committee, to elect our Republican nominees and defend our country against all enemies. Hillary Clinton is an enemy to our nation’s security, general welfare and blessings of liberty.  I will continue to work with passion, integrity and restlessness to stop Hillary Clinton and elect Donald J. Trump.
