Arizona Utilities Regulator Justin Olson Enters GOP Senate Race, Slams Democrats' Spending Proposal As 'Socialist State'
"As a utility regulator, Olson nearly succeeded in killing clean energy rules that could have boosted solar, energy efficiency and other clean power sources. When the rules were revived, the requirements were weaker than they otherwise would have been because of Olson’s opposition."

"Justin Olson, an elected utility regulator in Arizona, holds a second job as the Chief Financial Officer of Turning Point USA, a right-wing organization which has come under fire since its political arm sponsored the “March for Trump” rally in Washington, D.C. that preceded the violent and deadly riot and invasion of the U.S. Capitol building on January 6."

 

"Turning Point USA (TPUSA) has denied having any role in the rally and has condemned the violence that immediately followed it, saying that only its political affiliate, Turning Point Action, was a sponsor. The CEO and founder of both Turning Point USA and Turning Point Action, Charlie Kirk, deleted a tweet boasting of “sending 80+ buses full of patriots to fight for this president.”"

Arizona Corporation Commissioner Justin Olson Used APS Talking Points In Call On Key Issues
"Arizona Corporation Commissioner Justin Olson took talking points on renewable energy and environmental programs provided by Arizona Public Service Co. and cited them, often verbatim, to a Wall Street analyst who was seeking information about his views as a regulator. [...] An EPI official and one of Olson's political rivals said the reciting of APS policy positions shows Olson can't be objective when deciding rates and other policies for the company."
