‘The Arizona Statesman, The Last Word In Arizona Politics’ is a newsprint style Political Advertisement that is also available on the web here that is paid for by Meluskey for US Senate, Inc.
Craig Bergman Campaign Manager for Alex Meluskey is the ‘Publisher’ but be aware that what appears in the newsprint version, doesn’t necessarily appear in the web version, which leaves one to wonder why the exclusion? You would think a true fiscal conservative candidate would take advantage of social media already being paid for by the Meluskey Campaign to its fullest extent.
Truth be told The Arizona Statesman represents modern day Yellow Journalism political style at its best. One example is an article not appearing in the web version that was included in the latest newsprint version, an article penned by Publisher Craig Bergman that was transposed here titled “U.S. Senate Election By The Numbers”. This latest version of ‘The Arizona Statesman’ that is dated only with “Summer 2016” despite continual changes to content was inserted in over 600,000 regional / local newspapers over the past few weeks.
As the article title implies “U.S Senate Election By The Numbers” number of votes a candidate got in the 2010 Primary is the premise on which the article is written, that is used to predict a Meluskey 2016 U.S. Senate win, or validation for him staying in the race despite spending over $650,000 to date with near zero and no increase in name recognition. (Alex Melsukey’s Broken Promises video…)
Yet Bergman who states he has (nearly 10-years) experience as a vice-President in banking let alone 20 in politics, and Meluskey whose is the NEW Arizona’s Fair Tax Director, both numbers guys, GOT THE NUMBERS WRONG, numbers that are easy to obtain.
They state McCain got 285,000 votes in 2010 where he actually got 333,744; they state JD Hayworth got 160,000 where he got 190,229; and Jim Deakin who they left out got 69,328 for a total of 593,301 Republican votes in the 2010 Primary. So, so much for percentage’s based on flawed criteria being used by Meluskey to continue his self-funded campaign.
Almost as easy as hitting the Staples “Easy Button” check out the real 2010 Primary NUMBERS: go to the home page of the Arizona’s Secretary of State web site here: highlight the “Elections” tab, click “Voter Registration & Historical Election Data”, click 2010 under Historical Election Information, click “Primary Election Information”, click “Official Election Canvass of Results PDF”:
Indeed the details are in the numbers yet both numbers guys missed it and it’s not a small mistake rather a profound one given their combined experience, their common focus that which Meluskey is self-funding… all the money it needs, for what?
Makes you wonder if Meluskey is a sap of sorts, being taken for a ride by those he hired to advise him, or he is with knowledge.
On “self-funding” the key word is “loaned” vs “contribute”, Meluskey is loaning his campaign money which means win or lose he can repay himself from any source that buys into such a scheme and contributes to repay him, candidates do it all the time and it can be done after the Primary win or lose. Meluskey is too casual about the money he’s dumping into his campaign, it’s like he knows he will not realize a loss in the end, classic Strawman Candidate.
That was a leap, self-funding to Alex Meluskey being a McMcCain Progressive Political Machine Strawman… you got another explanation for Meluskey to be in this race? Have you seen him make his stump speech, answer questions from an informed audience? I have and to think his FEC Report shows dry cleaning receipts after dry cleaning receipts being paid by his campaign, never knew an empty suit could soil itself so much.
The Alex Meluskey Show a “Syndicated Radio Show” on every Saturday from 9 PM to 10 PM – now that’s a popular slot to be on AM radio! Go here (he’s at the bottom) and take a listen and decide if you want this Empty Suit in DC representing you?
Let’s look past the grossly botched NUMBERS issue in the Bergman “U.S. Senate Election By The Numbers” article, and read between the lines. The article speaks to Meluskey being an outsider yet the jest of the article is Meluskey wins based on he “has the means to reach” voters as “a serious candidate”. In context “serious candidate” equates to money like “He has been on TV since March with his real ads on real issues”, “He has two offices and a dozen paid staffers with decades of election experience”, “If any one candidate has the means (?????) to reach those voters…” etc.
Bergman predicts a Meluskey win on the “Trump Factor” yet his campaign began way before Trump was on the scene?
Read the article that includes reviewing the links, do some research and decide for yourself, is Meluskey trying to buy this election, or enough votes to assure McCain Remains?
