Gabriela Saucedo Mercer Shoots Grijalva

RINO Gabby Mercer disgraces GOP at Funeral

The RINO Report is sad to announce that familiar GOP RINO Gabriela Saucedo Mercer is at it again. This time Mrs. Mercer decided to inappropriately appear at a funeral of a prominent South Tucson Family in order to gain political points. Mercer who was not invited and not welcomed by the family showed up late and attended the funeral hoping to gather pictures of her opponent Congressman Raul Grijalva taking Catholic communion. Gabby Mercer is a perma-candidate who simply seems to be around to nag, and spend the money that the people she calls “suckers” dontate. This time Gabriela Saucedo Mercer was comparing Raul Grijalva to Ryan Gosling and calling for is excommunication from the Catholic Church. We must point out the Gabriela Saucedo Mercer is not a Catholic herself.

We are sad to report this because Gabriela Saucedo Mercer is a candidate who constantly reminds us how dumb some people can be and continues to make the GOP look like nothing but radical right wing extremists. The worst part about her running for office year after year is that Gabriela Saucedo Mercer is just someone who uses campaign donations for her personal expenses, as we have reported here before on The Rino Report.

Now we will be fair, Raul Grijalva is what we here at The Rino Report consider the left of the leftists. He is the chairman of the Progressive Caucus and supports many bills and ideas which do go against the morals of the Catholic Faith. He has been a strong pro-choice advocate, but he is not a doctor and he is not the woman who is making the choice. So what was this about? Gabby trying to get some sort of thing going to hopefully raise another few thou$and dollars to pay for her gas, and dresses.

The funeral was for Manny Herrera who passed away recently and has been a friend of Raul Grijalva for years. Most of you might be reading this and saying so what Raul absolutely revolts me but please remember most Republicans and especially Latino Democrats have a strong Christian/Catholic background. As humans we must remove ourselves from politics when it comes to the death of loved ones. Raul Grijalva was in grief, and so was the Herrera Family and Gabriela Saucedo Mercer was trying to gain political points from it.

Here is a quote from Yolanda Herrera representing the family:

Three times Gabriela Saucedo Mercer has disrespected my family. She does NOT know us, she may know of us, not the same thing. To use my brother’s memorial service for politics is beyond shameful but to hit me on the head while I was in prayer after receiving communion so I would notice her is beyond forgivable. You overstepped, shame on you…my family is mourning. Congressman Grijalva knows my family and was a friend of my brother and was respectful during the service unlike you. Shame on anyone who votes for Mercer.

We are of course not saying to vote for Raul Grijalva, but with 19% of the voters in CD-3 being Republicans we recommend writing in whatever you like.

AZ Primary

Primary 2014, Mixed Results

As we look at the results of the Primary in 2014 it is good to see that there were some real conservative victories in Arizona’s Republican Party. There also were some things that should not have happened, but were predictable. We will look at the good and bad of the Arizona Primary.

Governor – Doug Ducey. He will have to take on Fred Duval in the general election. Doug is a solid conservative and will definitely bring new ideas in terms of tax reform the State of Arizona. We look forward to supporting Doug Ducey through November.

Secretary of State – Michele Reagan has made it through. Michele is a RINO and is no better than the Democrat, we will not support her in any way. Justin Pierce was our choice and we are sad to see him loose because of Wil Cardon’s personal desire to feel important.

State Treasurer – Jeff DeWit. We endorsed this guy from the start. Jeff will have a tough road ahead of him to win the general. We will continue to support him on his quest.

Attorney General – Mark Brnovich has slaughtered the disgraceful Tom Horne in the primary race. Brnovich has a tough challenge as well and we will continue to support him here at The Rino Report.

Superintendent of Public Instruction – Diane Douglas will be marching on to try and fight to repeal common core and revamp the Arizona school system. We supported her over Huppenthal and we will continue to do so. Look for upcoming episode on The Race: Politics in Arizona.

CD-1 – We are calling it for Gary Kiehne, and as such we will continue to support him. Should the race go towards Andy Tobin we will see if we can work with him. Adam Kwasman may have been what spoiled the race for Gary Kiehne who would have carried more of the conservative base of the district if Kwasman wasn’t around. We have always felt that Adam Kwasman was out of his league with lack of financial support.

CD-9  - Wendy Rogers wasn’t out horse in the race, but she is still a fierce competitor and a Lt. Colonel, despite this we do not see her having a possibility of winning against Sinema but time will tell.

It appears that many of the Medicaid expansion incumbents have survived re-election and the Arizona Chamber’s entities and friends have wasted tons of money trying to get rid of conservative incumbents. We are glad to see Steve Smith in LD-11, Steve Montenegro in LD-13 win. The Rino Report is sad to see some of our endorsed candidates loose such as Darla Dawald, and Harold Vangilder in LD-8. We are shocked that a RINO such as Kelly Townsend was able to be re-elected. In LD-16 we have two RINOs, Doug Coleman and the secret RINO Kelly Townsend. We will be exposing more about her RINO ways in the future for those of you who lack information on the real motives behind her. We guarantee that this will become our mission in 2015 as we follow the next Legislative Session. No more will we allow fake conservatives to get elected. We are RINO hunting!

Michele Reagan The Rino

Michele Reagan THE RINO

The Rino Report today is dedicating its reporting to the great RINO Michele Reagan. Reagan is running for the Arizona Secretary of State position against great conservative Justin Pierce. We have been openly supporting Justin Pierce for this office, but we are bringing to light the reasons why Michele Reagan is not the right person to head our state ballots. Let’s start off with her credentials, she doesn’t have any legal experience. Michele Reagan has experience from being an elected official which is unremarkable. Michele Reagan also has taken some drastically anti-Republican moves while being an elected official.

Michele Reagan has been censured by her own legislative district! Michele Reagan has been a strong supporter of Common Core. SB1396 would have stopped the use of common core in Arizona, but she voted against it. Michele Reagan voted to not notify a parent if their own child was to have an abortion. Michele Reagan voted to teach sex education to kindergartners. Michele Reagan voted FOR Obamacare Medicaid Expansion. Michele Reagan voted to give entitlements to illegal immigrants by removing the Proof of Citizenship Requirement. Michele Reagan voted for budgets that spent more money then she knew she had. Michele Reagan voted in 2004, 2008, and 2013 with a handful of Republicans and ALL the Democrats for a Democrat deficit budget.

Today we want to break something that we found interesting in her latest TV Commercial which is now airing with Governor Jan Brewer. Well we took a snapshot of a part of the commercial. She is a large supporter of defying the constitution and electing our President by popular vote. This is called Every Vote Equal, and it is a radical left agenda which is highly sought by those who wish to promote progressive theories and political ideologies. This would eliminate the Electoral College and open our elections to wide-spread fraud and essentially strip your rights away as a citizen when electing our President.

Michele also has strong ties to the Aspen Institute which promotes largely left leaning agendas and bills. Michele Reagan has received thousands upon thousands of dollars from Aspen Institute connected people and their PACs. We must battle the continued onslaught on Arizona and deny Michele Reagan the ability to continue in office. We realize that the uneducated voter will see the name ‘Reagan’ and get all excited. This is what Michele Reagan is hoping for, but it is our duty as the politically active to do everything we can in order to stop this. Please help us and spread the word. We must elect Justin Pierce for Arizona Secretary of State. Here is his interview on The Race: Politics in Arizona

Arizona Teenage Republicans WIN National Awards

Today I am proud to announce that the Arizona Teenage Republicans took home 4 of 7 National Awards back to Arizona. When we look at the Republican Party the typical stereotype is that we are a bunch of dying old white people. In fact I have even jokingly coined the term G-O-P for “Grey Old People”. We all know that is not true as I am now in my 30s and a Hispanic Republican. As the editor of The Rino Report I rarely write the articles which come out on this website so I wanted to make this article myself. As I try to be as active as possible with the AZ Republican Party, I keep in touch with many of the various organizations and organizational leaders in the State of Arizona. I am a proud member of the Young Republicans, but today is all about pointing out the great success of our Arizona Teenage Republicans!

Lilia Dashevsky, who is a workhorse for our party and is the current Chairwoman for the Federation of Arizona Teenage Republicans let me know about the awards they had received. I informed her that I would get this out immediately. Lilia is a young woman that has a bright future ahead in the Republican Party and has been a great leader for the AZ TARs. During the National Teenage Republicans (TARs) Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C., during July18 – 25, 2014 the Arizona Chapter took home 4 of 7 National Awards!

A quote from Lilia is below.

“Over the past school year, the AZ TARs achieved an unprecedented amount of growth. Our organization went from having slightly over two-dozen members, to more than 350 members in over 5 counties. Our social media presence has increased as we acquired nearly 1,100 new Facebook followers, over 340 Twitter followers, and introduced our new website, Additionally, under my administration, the AZ TARs held the most successful annual banquet in the organization’s history. With Fox News contributor, editor, and author, Katie Pavlich as our host, over 215 attendees–including several local, state, and federal officials– enabled the Arizona TARs to raise upwards of $18,000. Furthermore, thanks to our generous donors, the AZ TARs were able to pay for 18 airline tickets for members of our delegation to attend the week-long National TARs Conference in Washington, D.C. Following our tremendous success, the Arizona TARs were recognized by the National Teenage Republicans. We won awards for the ‘Outstanding Federation in the Nation,’ the‘Outstanding Club in the Nation,’ the ‘Outstanding TAR in the Nation,’ and the ‘Outstanding Social Media Presence’. The Arizona TARs continue to be our party’s greatest hope for the future.”

So let all join together and congratulate the AZ TARs. You can like their Facebook Page. Follow them on Twitter. Visit their Webpage.

Andrew Walter

The Rino Report Endorses Andrew Walter

Andrew Walter has received the endorsement of The Rino Report for CD-9. We hope he will take on Sinema in the general election. We decided to go with Andrew because Wendy Rogers isn’t the right choice for the district and will not resonate with voters like Andrew Walter can.  Please visit and learn more about him.

Andrew Walter Biography

Andrew possesses a unique combination of experience and leadership obtained from his successful endeavors in private enterprise and professional football. Andrew was born in Arizona and attended college at Arizona State University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Communications. While at ASU, Andrew was a record-setting quarterback on the football team and the team’s only three-year captain. He also set numerous Pac-10 passing records.

Andrew’s hard work, will to overcome adversity, and demonstrated calm under pressure made him a highly sought-after prospect in the 2005 NFL Draft, where he was selected 69th overall by the Oakland Raiders. Andrew played in the NFL for the Oakland Raiders and the New England Patriots.

Andrew was the first NFL player to participate in the Player Development program in commercial real estate at CB Richard Ellis in Phoenix. During this time, he returned to ASU where he earned his MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business. While pursuing his MBA, Andrew recognized the importance of providing capital to job creators which motivated him to found Andrew Walter Holdings, a senior secured lending firm. Andrew also gained valuable experience in underwriting when he served as a credit analyst for MidFirst Bank in Phoenix.

In addition to his successes in private enterprise and professional football, Andrew is devoted to his faith, active in the community, and passionate about business. He’s active in his church, Redemption Tempe, where he met his wife Inning Chen, an optometrist practicing in Mesa. Andrew recognizes the sacrifices our armed service members make on a daily basis and is proud to serve on the Advisory Board of the Veteran Tickets Organization, a Scottsdale non-profit that connects Veterans with game, show, and event tickets.

Andrew is also passionate about aviation, which is a deep-rooted family tradition. A third generation pilot, he’s admittedly not nearly as accomplished as his grandfather who served in the Army Air Corps during World War II or his father who’s been a commercial airline pilot for over 30 years.

Andrew currently resides in Scottsdale with his wife, Inning, and their Doberman, Duchess.

Diane Douglas

We Endorse Diane Douglas, End Fed Ed

The Rino Report is endorsing Diane Douglas for Superintendent of Public Instruction. We feel that her strong opposition to Common Core makes her the obvious choice in the Republican Primary!

Those of you who have not had a chance to get to know Diane please visit her site by clicking here.

Biography of Diane Douglas

I began studying the American education system and the federal government’s ever increasing intrusion into our local control since the early 1990s. I did it on my own, for my own edification rather than through a college of “education” in order to add letters after my name.  I’ve studied the history of our education system; the intent of our Founding Fathers for public education; curriculum trends and fads; lawsuits that have changed our education system by judicial fiat and so much more. I went wherever the trail led. So much of what I studied “in theory,” I then experienced in practice while serving on the Peoria Unified School District governing board.

The two most important duties we have, as a society, are protect our country, borders and sovereignty; and to educate our children to perpetuate the liberty with which we have been blessed as a nation. The prior is the proper, constitutional role of the federal government, the latter is not. Currently the federal government has its roles reversed.

While I have been blessed with various opportunities the single most important “job” I have held in my adult life was being a full time mother; anything I have ever done or achieved pales in comparison.

Gary Kiehne Endorsement

The Rino Report Endorses Gary Kiehne

Today The Rino Report is officially endorsing Gary Kiehne in the Republican Primary for Congressional District 1. We believe Gary is the right Republican to take on Ann Kirkpatrick in the November general election. Gary is the only candidate who comes from a background in energy, land management, and currently creating jobs. He is running against Adam Kwasman and Andy Tobin.

Adam Kwasman who recently caught national attention for being an idiot and trying to capitalize on the illegal children issue has lost his cool as of late. Stephen Colbert labeled Kwasman “Stubble Farm” and Andy Tobin has not being showing up to anything. In a recent debate in Maricopa, Adam Kwasman was booed by the entire crowd when he tried to attack  Gary Kiehne as a failed politician. Adam Kwasman was so mortified by the crowd that he then lost his talking points and stumbled through the rest of the debate.

Kwasman and Tobin have both been ignoring Gary Kiehne in this race so far and this has helped Gary to become noticed and people to like him. He is holding meet and greets all over the district, and having to crisscross the state since CD-1 goes all the way from Tucson to Flagstaff. No other candidate is working as hard or has the conservative values as Gary Kiehne. We will be releasing his episode of The Race: Politics in Arizona next week!

Gary Kiehne is the right man for the job. He doesn’t owe anyone anything. He is not running for political ambition like Kwasman or because it is his “turn” like Andy Tobin. Gary Kiehne has been working the district, and making inroads all over. Please back Gary Kiehne in this race, he is the only conservative. Andy Tobin has had John Boehner raising money for him. Gary Kiehne has had the support of the people, not the establishment.

Christine Jones Endorsement

The Rino Report Endorses Christine Jones

The time has come to take a stand for Arizona and select the next Governor. The Rino Report bases its endorsements on a panel of 13 members of the editorial board and have finally made a selection for Governor. The choice for conservative leadership is Christine Jones. This decision did not come easily due to the large number of candidates running to be the next Governor of Arizona. We have taken a number of votes since April and vetted every candidate in this race.

We must point out that Christine Jones has been a worker. She has worked harder than any other candidate in this race. She has taken the time to be a guest on The Race: Politics in Arizona and managed to crisscross the state on her non-stop endeavor to connect with voters. Lately her stances on immigration and border security have led to her rising to the top of the polls, and she hasn’t sought out endorsements just votes. Her competition are good conservative Republicans (except for Scott Smith) so it was very difficult for our board to come to this endorsement. We must admit that many were supportive of Andrew Thomas and Frank Riggs.

Supporters of Riggs and Thomas we are asking you to help the conservative who can win in November and vote for Christine Jones. Look through the attack ads, look through the special interest. Christine Jones does not owe anyone any political favors. Christine Jones hasn’t been trying to run a negative campaign. Christine Jones has taken the initiative as a very successful private citizen to run for public office for the betterment of Arizona. Her border security plan is top notch, her economic plan is top notch. So if you are a hold out for Riggs or Thomas, vote for Christine Jones. We cannot afford to have Scott Smith win this by 1%!

Check out our interview with Christine Jones from earlier this year. You will see that she has been about securing our border from the start, not just recently. She is a champion for freedom and for Arizona.


Christine joins our state-wide endorsement lists.

Governor – Christine Jones

Attorney General – Mark Brnovich

Secretary of State – Justin Pierce

Superintendent – Diane Douglas

Treasurer – Jeff DeWit

Cardon Cookie Jar

Wil Cardon, caught in the cookie jar

The Arizona Republic is reporting that Wil Cardon is being sued by 6 of his siblings. The lawsuit claims that Wil has spent nearly $10 million dollars of the family trust for his personal use and they want it to stop. The siblings are asking for a restraining order to stop him from being able to make any financial transactions in the future. It is being reported that he spent $6.3 million Cardon spent on his U.S. Senate race in 2012 that he lost and $3.2 million transferred last month, presumably to buy a new home in Mesa.

Wil Cardon “has misused Cardon family assets to afford himself an excessive and lavish lifestyle,” the complaint states.

“It’s your typical wealthy heirs decide they need more money, so let’s sue,” campaign manager Chris Baker said.

There is no evidence in the court filing that Wil Cardon directed the money to his current campaign for secretary of state, where he is one of three Republicans seeking the party’s nomination. Campaign-finance reports show that Cardon had lent his campaign $133,500 as of May 31, the most recent date for which reports are available.

Jeff DeWit Endorsement

The Rino Report Endorses Jeff DeWit

Today the Editorial Board made the decision to endorse Treasurer candidate Jeff DeWit. We have had the opportunity to vet DeWit and feel he is the real thing. This election is about getting rid of the old school. DeWit doesn’t have a political history instead he has a 21 year history in investment banking. The Arizona State Treasurer is vested with the powers of overseeing the investment portfolio of the state and who better than an investment banker. He has a strong belief in updating the technology in the Treasurer Office and making Arizona up to date.

The Rino Report encourages you to visit his website at


Adam Kwasman

Kwasman Fumbles with Visions of Migrants

Adam Kwasman who is running for CD-1 in Arizona managed to be the Republican that managed to assume that he was seeing the illegal immigrant children being shipped. In an attempt to sound compassionate and appeal to the GOP majority in an interview with AZ Central, Kwasman was caught off guard with the truth, they were Marana School children on a YMCA camp.

This story is very important to for voters since it helps to show part of the picture that we don’t normally see in politics. What happens when a candidate is wrong? What do they try and get away with? What are they actually sincere about? As we can see in the video below Adam Kwasman’s alleged sincerity quickly changes to a panic and an immediate attempt to correct his position before it causes political harm. As part of our mission at The Rino Report we must keep Republicans honest. Adam Kwasman is loosing in fundraising to AZ Speaker Andy Tobin, and Conservative Gary Kiehne.

The Conservative List

The State-Wide Conservative List

With early ballots 2 weeks away and the all important state-wide offices up for grabs we wanted to spend some time and let our readers know exactly who to vote for on the Republican Primary Ballot. We have made endorsements in many races and these are the people you can count on as conservatives in their respective races. It is all about saving Arizona from moving towards the left. To the left of us is California, and that’s where all those “Baja Arizona” people need to move. Remember No Amnesty, No Priority and build the dang fence already!

We want you to focus on those candidates who not only have shown that they have principles that align to the Republican Party, but have taken the time to really work and make sure that this effort is not in vain. Let’s examine the first race, for Arizona Governor.

In the Governor race there are 3-4 top tier candidates. Scott Smith, Christine Jones, Doug Ducey and Ken Bennett are all vying for the seat. We will concede immediately to not vote for Scott Smith, he has all the bills to fit a RINO. Ken Bennett and Doug Ducey are current state holders and we are looking at them closely. Christine Jones is a new comer in running for office, but brings a real world perspective into the race and also enough money to self fund. We want everyone to look through the lines when evaluating these candidates. Jones has come under attack by well funded IEs and really been dealt some blows, yet she remains at the top of the polls. She is the hardest working candidate out of the field and we see her as a great potential Governor. Bennett doesn’t have the funding and much of his expected support is being deflected by Smith. Ducey is producing biased poll after biased poll saying he is on top. The decision is up to you, new blood in Christine Jones or same old from Ducey or Bennett.

The Secretary of State office has only 1 true conservative running, Justin Pierce. Justin is troubled by the fact that Michele Reagan has the last name ‘Reagan’. The appeal for the generic primary voter who is 65+ and still dreams of the glory days of the 80s when Ronald Reagan was around may just vote Reagan for one more time. We want you to not do so and vote for Justin Pierce. Wil Cardon is the other candidate. He is a failed 2012 US Senate candidate, and hasn’t worked at all in 2014 on this race. Wil just doesn’t have the will to win this battle, though he does share conservative values. Throw your support behind Justin Pierce.

Attorney General is probably the most talked about race other than Governor right now. The Rino Report supports Mark Brnovich. With the recent addition of Governor Jan Brewer’s endorsement for Brnovich, incumbent Tom Horne seems like he is backed even more into a corner this primary season. Horne who has held political office and done a good job as the Attorney General is plagued by tons of personal and questionable ethical decisions. Matt Salmon has also called for Tom Horne to step down from re-election for fear that his name hurts the GOP.

Superintendent of Public Instruction. The only option to support is Diane Douglas. There is no other primary candidate running for the seat against incumbent John Huppenthal. Douglas who has no experience in the classroom brings her ideals as a conservative to the office which would always be better than the one who brought us Common Core.

Corporation Commission are the last offices we will discuss. We have yet to make any decisions regarding these offices.

So your State-wide Conservative List:


  • Christine Jones
  • Ken Bennett
  • Doug Ducey

Secretary of State

  • Justin Pierce
  • Wil Cardon

Attorney General

  • Mark Brnovich


  • Diane Douglas


Chrstine Jones Paul Babeu

Christine Jones Leads on Border Security

Christine Jones came out with what seems to be the biggest deal so far of the Arizona race for Governor. Last week she came out with her border security plan in a big way. She held town halls in Phoenix and Tucson with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. Attendance at these events was high, and emotions with primary voters was heavily shown. Immigration and border security are proving to be the topic most voters are concerned about. Border security has especially become important due to the illegal children being transported to Arizona.

During the presentation on Border Security, Jones outlined her plan of troops, technology, finishing the fence, and sending the bill to DC for the burden that illegal immigrants.

“$2.8 billion dollars is the estimated cost that the taxpayers of Arizona are faced with each year due to illegal immigration. This includes the cost of when they become inmates, send their children to our schools, and use our healthcare system. The citizens of Arizona do not deserve this burden.” – Christine Jones

Her strategic plan for border security, stations an estimated 1200 troops along the border. The deployment was outlined by Sheriff Babeu, who at one point commanded part the Yuma sector border. He described the deployment as standard groups of 3-5 soldiers posted along the border strategically placed approximately 1/4 of a mile apart so there was always a direct line of sight between troops. This “show of force” is a direct deterrent to people who will try and enter our country illegally.  Babeu who’s county is north of the border told the crowds that his officers had recently captured spotters who were working for the cartels in Pinal County.

Christine Jones also outlined the benefit of finishing the fence in the Tucson Sector which is the least secure of the 9 sectors of the US/Mexico border. She outlined that only 50 miles of the 262 border miles are used for smuggling whether it is “human, sex, drugs or god forbid terrorist activity.” With an average cost of $1 million per mile, the one time cost of $50 million would be worth the investment. This would allow for funneling of illegal activity which could then help enforcement of border security and be more successful keeping more of our officers out of harms way.

Jones added that she would do whatever she could within her power as Arizona’s Governor to make the sovereign State of Arizona secure. Border security leads to less immigration problems and less expense to Arizona.

We will be sending an a couple of follow up questions to the Christine Jones campaign regarding this plan. They are as follows

  1. What will happen should the Cartels decide to take a military-like response as they have fought the Mexican military in Mexico?
  2. How do we deal with the problems of the “shadow-wolves” on the Indian Reservation, last reported there are only 15 and they want out of the Border Patrol?
  3. Where will the additional funds come from that would be required to fund the Arizona Guard troops and technology?
