Steve Sensmeier   From an early age I was a Republican, declaring at age 3 that Hillary Clinton was a witch and proudly exclaiming that Newt Gingrich was the Speaker of the House. That always shocked quite a few people, but as a fourth generation Republican activist I've always felt that it's just in my blood.
After graduating from Prescott High School and earning my Eagle Scout Award, I attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University where I received my degree in Global Security and Intelligence Studies. While there I joined the College Republicans eventually serving as President. I also served as the Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Arizona Federation of College Republicans.
I've been involved in local politics for more than 10 years. I volunteered for my first campaign during the 2008 Presidential Election and have volunteered or worked on more than a dozen campaigns since. I've also worked as a Field Director for the Arizona Republican Party as well as for the Martha McSally for Senate Campaign

Dr. Paul Gosar is a conservative Republican representing Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District and currently serving in his fifth term. After 25 years as a dentist and watching Arizona middle-class families and small businesses struggle under Washington Democrats’ job-killing agenda, Dr. Gosar decided it was time to make a difference. In 2010 he ran for Congress against an incumbent Democrat - and won. Determined to stand up for Arizona families, Dr. Gosar has continued to challenge the status quo, offer common sense solutions, fight against liberals and Special Interests, and often, stand up to his own party.
As a member of Congress, he is focused on fighting for the interests of the people of Arizona. By repealing burdensome regulations and fostering an environment for economic growth, he's working to create more jobs for our families. He's working to keep our families safe by securing the border and ending the influx of illegal immigration. And he's reforming government by cutting federal spending and forcing accountability.
In 2017, Dr. Gosar was named Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus, founded in 1983 to promote rural values, preserve our uniquely American way of life, and combat federal overreach over our land, water, and natural resources.
He was also named Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee's Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources which oversees American energy production and mining on federal lands, critical to Arizona's economy.r.Congressman Paul Gosar has earned the recognition as one of the most conservative members of Congress based on his voting record fighting for a border wall and border security, fighting against amnesty for criminals, never raising  taxes, applying the Constitution first, keeping his promises,  and fighting for life and against the abortion industry. 

In addition, Dr. Gosar has been rated as the most effective member of Congress because of his work getting bills, programs and amendments passed through Congress that directly help the people of Arizona. His efforts to reduce government waste and reduce spending have resulted in nationwide recognition.  Conservatives love him and Liberals hate him for the same reason...he keeps his word

Gosar is a devout family man and cherishes Arizona's culture of family values. He and his wife Maude have been married for nearly 30 years and have three children.

U.S. Representative in Congress - District No. 4

Kim Owens   After many years of serving in elected offices in my community and within the GOP, I would like to now use my experience to see that, as our Arizona Constitution requires, regulation at the Arizona Corporation Commission is “just” and “reasonable”. The ACC is vitally important in the effort to push back against the energy policies of the left, such as “The Green New Deal”, which would transform our economy and very way of life. In 2018 out-of-state interests spent millions of dollars to influence the Arizona elections, encouraging changes to our lifestyle and threatening to damage our economy through Prop 127. Arizona voters defeated that effort and sent a message - DON'T CALIFORNIA MY ARIZONA!  But, did you know those same radical policies can still be passed as regulations at the ACC? They can – but not on my watch! We must protect the interests of rural Arizona in water and power regulation. Many parts of the state are treated with a double standard when it comes to regulations on water and power. Small rural water companies and their users should not suffer because they don’t have the lawyers and paid staff of the large corporations; any discussion of power regulation or policy changes must take into account all of Arizona, not just the areas served by the large power companies. 
The ACC has a need for strength and vision from those who occupy the office that is committed, without wavering, to the purpose and a vision outlined in the Arizona Constitution, with a focus on the public good. As a Commissioner I will not be timid in my opposition to dangerous policy efforts, will ask the tough questions and demand serious, honest answers - while serving all of Arizona, rural and urban, large and small communities, with the same level of integrity and interest and respect the rights of consumers and business alike, no matter their size or influence.

Judy Burges, a longtime Skull Valley resident and former state senator for LD22, has formally announced her candidacy to fill one of LD1’s two upcoming vacancies in the state legislature. The conservative Republican is well known to Yavapai County voters after representing the southern portion of the county as part of LD22 until redistricting transferred the area into LD1 following the 2010 census.
Ms. Burges served in the Arizona House of Representatives from 2005 to 2012, and the state Senate from 2012 to 2018. She now joins five other announced candidates, four Republicans and one Democrat, to fill one of LD1’s two seats in the State House of Representatives. To date, she is the only announced candidate with prior legislative experience. The former Senator’s conservative credentials, high name recognition and deep ties to Yavapai County could propel her into the lead in what is shaping up to be a sharply contested August primary.
As a candidate for state office, Ms. Burges calls herself “an unapologetic conservative” and “a Christian who supports family values, the right to life, school choice, border security, and the protection of constitutional freedoms, especially free speech and the Second Amendment.”
Ms. Burges has indicated she will run as a traditional candidate and not accept any form of public financing. It is still relatively early in the campaign season. Candidates can file a statement of organization with the Secretary of State at any time and have until April 6, 2020, to file a minimum of 690 petition signatures to earn a place on the ballot.

​Rich Reithal, a lifelong republican, longtime Arizona businessman, and humble family man. Originally from Illinois, moving to Arizona as a teen, he was raised by a conservative, Christian family, of blue-collar Americans from the Greatest Generation. Residing in Yavapai County for nearly twenty years, he has developed a keen feel and understanding for the local people and businesses. Graduating from ASU with a Business Degree in Economics and Transportation, he went to work as a railroad construction contractor, managing projects in the western states.

Over 28 years later it continues to thrive, being a model for sustainable American lumber and proudly employing Arizonians. Beyond the business world, he has stood up for his community. For years on end he has volunteered his time with Valley Big Brothers, youth soccer programs, mentoring Homeless Children, the local school board, and church council, helping invest in the next generation and his community.  In Yavapai county he seeks balanced development with the interest of community residents and the environment.

Five Key Issues: Education and Child Welfare, Simplifying Public Accountability, Fair and Impartial State Redistricting, Promoting Economic Growth, and Strengthening Health Programs. These issues are central to his vision to addressing the unique needs of our district.
Strengthening Education and Child Welfare: Arizona public education system needs financial help. He plans to create a special tax deduction for educators statewide, keeping money in teachers’ pockets and out of administrators’ hands.          
Simplifying Public Accountability: He will advocate for the creation of a simple, centralized public database for all state funding and expenditures. A centralized location for the public to hold public officials accountable. The public has the right to know, it is their money.
Fair and Impartial Redistricting: With the new decade comes the 2020 census, this will bring about statewide redistricting.

The need to simplify our state’s procedures, regulations, and taxes for small businesses is clear. We need to unchain our entrepreneurs and promote future job growth.

Currently serving in my 19th year as a member of the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.  My ability to collaborate with others, my organizational skills and my extreme attention to detail has led me to becoming a member of the Sheriff’s executive staff.  As a Bureau Commander of the Detention Services Division, I have been instrumental in the development of policies and practices that have greatly improved the effectiveness and efficiency of the Sheriff’s Office.  I grew up right here in Prescott, Arizona.  I moved here with my family in 1981 when my father assumed the CEO role in the family’s multiple businesses.  I am a long time resident of Yavapai County (39 years) and a resident of District 5 for 17 years (before there even was a District 5).  Attending elementary school, junior high and high school in this community, I learned early on that this is a great place to live and raise a family. 
My strong leadership qualities, my desire to serve, my dependability and experience working cooperatively and in collaboration with multiple County and non-County entities make me the best candidate for District 5 Representative. I stand for the constitution and laws of the United States of America and the State of Arizona and have sworn an oath to the same that I follow daily.  I believe that all men and women are created equal.
Stand for lower taxes, effective government, love of family and community, religious beliefs and convictions, and accountability, service to the citizens and stewardship.

ED Cocchiola​I have lived in Arizona since 1957 — I love Arizona! To me Arizona represents beauty, freedom, and prosperity. I find the people of Arizona to be hard working folks who care about their state, their families, and their children.
I am a constitutionalist who loves his county, and his state. I respect and admire the men and women in the armed forces, and I want only the best for them. That goes for our vets who served so proudly to ensure our freedoms.
I am a life member of the NRA. I believe and cherish our 2nd amendment. Unfortunately, we don’t enforce the gun laws we currently have and so the politicians want to make more laws. Sadly, we don’t have a gun problem in Arizona, we have a mental health epidemic. Arizona ranks close to the bottom of out 50 states in mental health and yet not enough attention or funding is given to this issue or population of individuals.
I’ve worked in construction all of my life. I love to create and build things. I like to problem solve and work hard. I was proud of my time working for Vechtel construction helping to build Palo Verde for over decade. I met so many good people, who like me loved Arizona and saw the value in our states rights.
I am pro life and I am for woman’s rights. I believe in equal pay for woman, rights of property owners, bible as TRUTH, a strong secure border. We have to stop the flow of illegal activity and contraband coming across our border.
