Northwest Conservatives to host CD2 Candidate Forum on July 8

cd-2-candidate-forumThe Northwest Conservatives are hosting a Candidate Forum featuring the Republican candidate for the Congressional District 2 (CD2) Republic Primary on July 8, 1014, at Desert Sky Middle School located at 9850 E Rankin Loop, Tucson, Arizona.

Popular radio personality James T. Harris of 104.1 KQTH will emcee the event. Jeff Utsch, a favorite guest on the James T. Harris radio show will moderate the event.

All Republican primary candidates have been invited to the event; candidates Shelley Kais and Chuck Wooten have confirmed their participation.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. The forum will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Members of the public will be allowed to submit suggested questions for the moderator’s consideration.

“The Northwest Conservatives are pleased to bring the congressional candidates to the voters of CD 2,” said Frank Oliveri a spokesperson for the group. “We feel that when the people are informed, they make intelligent decisions on future elected leaders that will implement law about the issues affecting their community.”

Oliveri said, “The debate facility was selected as a central location for CD2 in order to allow as many voters as possible access to the candidates at a time when they are off work.”

Jeff Utsch is a graduate of the University of Arizona, where he was an NCAA All-American swimmer. His swimming prowess later allowed him to serve as an instructor to the Navy SEALS and the Naval Special Warfare community, which continues today. Jeff also founded a constitutional study group which he has led for the past 9 years. Jeff is the featured guest on James T. Harris’s Constitutional Mondays.

James T. Harris is the ringleader of the Conservative Circus on KQTH 104.1 FM. Tucson’s most popular radio host is funny, outrageous, and hard hitting. He can be found Monday through Fridays 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on 104.1 KQTH.

The Northwest Conservatives are active in northwest Tucson, Marana, Catalina, and Oro Valley. The group meets monthly to discuss local and national issues. The group holds informational and candidate forums throughout the year in an effort to engage the public in public issues.

“We look forward to hearing the candidates’ positions on the important issues surrounding southern Arizona and the nation,” concluded Oliveri.

The Arizona Daily Independent is a proud sponsor of the event.


  1. I have never seen two candidates run for office and duck every opportunity to get their message out.
    WE thought from the beginning that Kais was a plant to split the votes and now it looks like we were
    right. The Republicans will do anything to keep a conservative from getting into office. McSally has lost
    two times and is not worthy of anyone’s vote and Kaise is in there to be a spoiler.DON’T VOTE FOR EITHER ONE OF THEM. Chuck Wooten is by far the best one for the job and he doesn’t resort dirty politics. He
    is an honest,sincere candidate who wants to represent , “we the people”.
    I’m rooten for Wooten!!!!!!!!

  2. McSally hasn’t committed and she is a resident of the neighborhood where this will be held. That’s pretty pathetic and speaks volumes that she will not represent her constituents, but rather the folks who have already bought her.

  3. We’re McSally? In Phoenix visiting with Cantor? The establishment is certainly keeping her
    under wraps. It seems the Republicans never learn. They keep supporting losers. Wooten
    is the only candidate that can beat Barber. He is smart, eloquent, and has done more than
    fly a plane. Look him up folks. He’s a proven leader and winner.
