A Pro-Trump GOP Congressional Candidate Says He's A 'Lifelong Republican.' Election Records Say He Joined Party Last Year
"In a March 23 letter to a precinct committeeman, Cooper says that he is a "lifelong Republican." He also touts his support of the America First platform and Trump. In a May 23 Tweet, Cooper wrote: "As the only viable America First candidate in this race I am excited for the opportunity that may come. I encourage anyone looking to look deep. Not everyone is who there say they are. [...] Maricopa County Elections Department documents indicate that Cooper registered as "Other," with "No Party Preference" from 2014 until January 2021, when he registered as a Republican. [...] In modifications made to his voting registration in 2004, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013, Cooper also registered as an independent. Records from the Maricopa County Elections Department also show that prior to 2020, Cooper participated in two primary elections. According to the department's records, Cooper requested ballots in 2016 and 2014. In the former, Cooper asked for and voted in the Green Party primary. The records do not show Cooper partaking in the Republican primary that year, thereby he could not have supported Trump in that particular early contest."
