Madeline Rainwater - November 15th, 2016

Madeline Rainwater - October 25th, 2016

Update on AZ-05 Race – State of the Recount

Stacy French - September 07th, 2016

The Republican Primary in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District was held on August 30. Nearly 86,000 votes were cast and Club PAC-endorsed candidate Andy Biggs holds a 9-vote lead over Christine Jones. That margin will trigger an automatic recount once the election is certified. All indications from recent recounts in Arizona show that the electoral system there is extremely accurate and the final tally isn’t likely to change.

9-12-16 UPDATE –  Biggs’ lead widens to 16 votes

Paid for by Club for Growth PAC and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee. 202.955.5500
