Dean Martin Officially Endorses Jan Brewer in Gov's Race

Categories: Election 2010
Treasurer Dean Martin
Arizona Treasurer Dean Martin, who suspended his gubernatorial campaign in early July, is toeing the party line, announcing today that he is officially endorsing his one-time opponent Jan Brewer in the Arizona governor's race.

At one point Martin led in the polls in  the gubernatorial primary, but with the flick of a pen Jan Brewer signed SB 1070 and made herself the new "it-girl" of the Republican Party, which quickly put an end to any hope Martin, or anyone else, would be the Republican nominee for governor.

Martin bowed out of the race gracefully -- once it appeared he had no shot at taking down Brewer -- and pledged to support Brewer's campaign.

Today he took it a step further and officially endorsed Brewer in her upcoming general election against Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard.

Check out Martin's endorsement letter after the jump.

On July 9th, I suspended my campaign for the Republican nomination for Governor and pledged to support Governor Jan Brewer in her battle with the Obama Administration and its relentless attack on the people of Arizona.

Today, I would like to take this a step further and formally endorse the Governor against her Democrat opponent, Terry Goddard, who supports many of the same failed policies as President Obama.  

During a time when the Obama Administration has filed a frivolous lawsuit against our great state, a budget deficit is looming, and our economy is still shaky, I feel now is not the time for our state's leadership to change hands. We need to stand together to fight the overreaching federal government that has failed to secure our border with Mexico.  

Governor Brewer is going to need all our help to shoulder the burden of defending Arizona from the federal government, defeating the national agenda to open Arizona borders, and seize control of our healthcare system.  It is our duty to stand together as Arizona residents against an intrusive federal bureaucracy.  Our national economy is stuck in reverse by the Obama Administration.  The last thing we need is Terry Goddard who will mimic the
same failed big-government spending strategies of the Obama Administration. No government has ever spent its way to prosperity.  We must work together to fight for smaller government, win in November, and then hold those elected accountable.

I am encouraging all of my primary campaign supporters and my previous opponent, Buz Mills, to stand united as a party behind our nominee, Governor Jan Brewer against her Democrat opponent, Terry Goddard.

Thank-you and God Bless the great State of Arizona.

This letter from the Brewer concubine says plenty. I had no clue this guy was such a wuss until he got into the race and then caved in for Brewer. He and Randy Pullen must be pretty tight by now. By the way, to watch Randy Pullen announcing Mrs. Brewer the other night was NOT a pleasurable thing.

Americans must—NOT-- become politically docile in the next months and must reach out to the growing Tea Party members who see illegal immigration as a spreading financial menace. Although Senator turncoat John McCain fought off the platform of J. D. Hayworth, but we must remember that illegal aliens do vote, even it is a violation on federal law specifically Honor States where ID cards are not required. More so in states that are too tolerant in absentee ballots. Countless states like the “Sanctuary State of California”, where there is a continuous, massive ingress of foreign nationals eager to take advantage of welfare programs throughout the country. In California they are fighting off insolvency, where Senior Citizens have become Second class citizens, the fact that low income retirees cannot get dental care. Children fewer than 21 can apply and pregnant women, who as you would predict large numbers of illegal immigrants, coming to America to have a baby.

Receiving instant citizenship and thereafter the whole family can arrive to live in a Section 8 home, awarded to the child; as approved under the 14th Amendment. Today, we have seen the movement of the Tea Party of “Enough is enough” syndrome as strange results in midterm election is displaying the power of the vote. America has bile coming into their throats from incumbents and its time for new people, with some semblance of honesty and genuine interest in doing the bidding of the people. Not the wealthy elites and the usual open border politicians as Senator Harry Reid and his electoral crowd of Czars have retreated, who seemed to have no idea how to build the economy. We need more Governors such as Arizona's Jan Brewer, who are hard-core soldiers and not affluent namesake Gov. Bloomburg in New York. Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA website is sending e-mails to the millions of its pro-sovereignty membership, to contact their local, state and federal leaders to congratulate those lawmakers with a great anti-illegal immigration record.

Then Contempt for those who have disgusting report of not supporting the people and resolute on awarding Amnesty.Democrats under HS Secretary Napolitano new directive that—ONLY—criminal aliens are being deported and the rest are being released back into society. Every illegal alien must be removed or this can be classed as a stealth—AMNESTY. Being unable to pass some kind of PATH TO CITIZENSHIP, the majority leadership are allowing economic illegal aliens to GO and therefore take America jobs. NumbersUSA has this nation's most complete record of every immigration action ever taken by every single Member of Congress. Their computers calculate an Immigration-Reduction grade for a Member's CAREER, and also for the RECENT actions (2007-10), and for THIS CONGRESS. For an example Senator Reid has a lousy representation on illegal immigration of (F MINUS) and his push for another Amnesty. Seems to millions of Americans that the Democrats will tax us, so we can subsidize the juggernauts of illegal aliens still entering America.

According to the Heritage Foundation analysis of his Reid's amnesty program, taxpayers will be burdened with an additional $2.6 trillion in retirement benefits, for illegal aliens settled here, which even flip flopper Sen. John McCain wants to become citizens. EVERY INCUMBENT WHO HAS A BAD IMMIGRATION RECORD, BEGINNING WITH SEN. REID AND HIS CZARS MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE.

The only menace is constantly blaming someone else for anyones personal hardship.

You come here you get a job you work, great pay your taxes you are doing more for society then the murders that we babysit.

This blame game is lame.
