Another democrat ditching the party who has been hijacked by the Obama muslims/communists.
Noah Dyer, who launched his 2018 bid for governor as a Democrat, said he is abandoning his ties to the party because certain members of the political establishment did not embrace his candidacy.
Dyer, who shared detailed accounts of his sexual history when he declared he was running in February, said this week he is registering as an independent and plans to pursue the office using public campaign-finance money.
Since announcing his bid for governor, Dyer wrote he has been “thrilled” by the positive reception from independents, Republicans, Libertarians and members of the Green Party.
In a statement posted to his campaign website, Dyer ripped “senior state level partisans” who have refused to “support candidates who are not the stereotypical Democrats” while attempting “to silence a common sense approach” to running the state.
“Given the respect and influence these people wield, though they have by no means halted my campaign, they made it clear, both in my campaign and numerous campaigns around the country, that if you are not a party insider, you are not allowed to run for office so far as they are concerned,” Dyer’s statement said.
While he didn’t expect party leaders to unconditionally support him, he thought his ideas would get serious consideration.
“But there has been no such vetting. … While tens of thousands of Democrats have arrived at the truth easily enough, those responsible for leading the party have been unwilling or uninterested in having the same experience.”
Dyer has said he wants to improve the state’s public-education system, lure employers by making the state more welcoming to “diverse lifestyles,” and quickly release from prison those convicted solely for using and selling marijuana.
State Sen. Steve Farley, of Tucson, is running for governor as a Democrat, as is David Garcia, a Democrat who narrowly lost a 2014 bid for state superintendent of public instruction.
Enrique Gutirrez, a spokesman for the state Democratic Party, said in a written statement party officials gave him the “same courtesy” given to Farley and Garcia.
“We opened our doors to him, and advised him to take his campaign directly to our voters by attending the LD (legislative district) meetings,” Gutierrez wrote. “We even allowed him to have a table at our last state committee meeting … If he wasn’t gaining any traction with Democrats across the state, it’s not the party’s fault — that’s based on his campaign shortcomings.
Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican who was elected to the chief-executive office in 2014, has not yet formally declared his re-election bid, but is furiously fundraising.
Just be sure the next governor is not an Elite Republican who is a part of McConnell/Ryan’s gang – we have to vote them out of office in the next election.
