Not the First, Won’t Be the Last, But Today Was An Especially Bad Day for Fred DuVal
PHOENIX – This afternoon Chairman Robert Graham of the Arizona Republican Party issued the following statement:
“Fred DuVal awoke this morning to news that a national environmental group’s poll showed him losing to Doug Ducey by eight percent. Then voters heard from DuVal, in his own words, that he doesn’t support parents knowing about their children’s abortions, believing government should have more say than parents. Needless to say, voters didn’t like it. Next, DuVal was reminded of something haunting from his past: in 1999 DuVal chaired a government committee that made recommendations to give clemency to a terrorist group. This afternoon, an ad was launched featuring the son of one of the victims killed by the group DuVal was a part of giving clemency to. We can only imagine how DuVal felt knowing he was a part of giving clemency to despicable people.
“It’s clear that voters are turning away from Fred DuVal. Is it any wonder that the Democratic Governors Association and Arizona Democrat Party are also running from Fred DuVal?”
Social media analytics from today showed the following sentiment about Fred DuVal. 82 percent of voters’ discussions about him were negative. Unfortunately for Fred DuVal, parents still like to have say in their children’s decisions, and people don’t elect to leadership lobbyists and insiders that give clemency to terrorists.
