Cindy McCain, wife of Arizona Senator John McCain, made news this week when she appeared in an ad campaign sponsored by same-sex "marriage" proponents trying to overturn the voter-approved California marriage amendment (Proposition 8). Mrs. McCain posed for a photograph with duct tape over her month and "NO H8" painted on her cheek. The millions of Californians and Arizonans who voted in 2008 to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman are offended, disappointed, and outraged by Mrs. McCain's statement. It's one thing to express disagreement on the issue of same-sex "marriage." It's quite a different matter to label those of us who stand for marriage between one man and one woman as "haters." Sen. McCain has issuedthis statement in response.

Brewer's spokesman noted the increased "community concerns" that the new casino would be across the street from a high school.

Thank you, Governor Brewer, for standing up for the families in Glendale!
