The Lincoln Day Luncheon is an opportunity to come together as a Party, see old friends, make new ones, and most importantlyrecognize our PCs
the real backbone of the COP. In 1840, Abraham Lincoln wrote to one of his closest friends:''The whole state must be so well organized that every Whig can bebrought to the polls. So divide the county into small districts and appoint in each a committee. Make a perfect list of the voters and ascertain with certainty for whom they will vote ... Keep a constant watch on the doubtful voters and have them talked to by those inwhom they have the most confidence ... On election day see that every Whig is brought to the polls. " Even today with all of the billions of dollars spent on television and radio advertising, direct mail, and signs on top of signs
campaignsknow it is the hard work done on the ground that makes thedifference. That is where our PCs make a huge difference. PCsregister thousands of new voters each year, work hard at phonebanks and at polling locations, and canvas their neighborhoods todeliver the critical votes needed to win.We are under siege here in Arizona by the progressive socialists and liberal left
more so now than at any time in our State's history.They are aggressive, very well organized and have improved upon Lincoln's concept better than the COP. A surprising number of our elections are being decided by a small percentage of votes. That is why your hard work and commitment is so critical for us to win the majority of our elections at all levels.To each and everyone of you, please enjoy this special event and celebrate our past victories.
course, as soon as this day is over,we all need to go back to work
working harder and smarter to winin 2014!With my deepest appreciation and thanks, A.
LaFaro, Chairman Maricopa County Republican Committee
