Update from Senator Jack Harper campaign

Endorsements for Senator Jack Harper's Re-election Keep Rolling In

Senator Harper announced the endorsement of several conservative groups, in addition to two of the most popular office-holders in Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and County Attorney, Andrew Thomas. In a recorded message to the Republicans of Legislative District Four, Thomas said, "Jack’s opponents are running a very misleading ad that implies that I do not support Jack and that’s simply not true. Jack Harper is a solid conservative and a great Republican. Please vote for Jack Harper for State Senate."

In addition, National Rifle Association's Political Victory Fund, The Arizona Chamber of Commerce, The Arizona Association of Realtors, The Arizona Right-to-life PAC and numerous constituents have openly sided with Senator Harper, over the pro-gay marriage, pro-higher taxes John Zerby.

On March 31st and April 2nd of this year, Senator Harper canvassed the neighborhood of John Zerby, collecting signatures for Harper's nomination petitions. Over half of the registered Republicans were home and none refused to sign Harper's nomination petition. Harper said, "If the people that know the pro-gay marriage, pro-higher taxes Zerby the best, his neighbors cannot support him, why would anyone?" In a debate sponsored by the Citizen's Clean Election Commission, Zerby opposed the Marriage Amendment and opposed the permanent elimination of the state property tax. In addition, Zerby said he was open to new taxes.
