FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Stonewall Democrats of Arizona, in past elections, have endorsed Dr. Matt Heinz. We thought him a good person, a decent candidate, a good Democrat and a member of the LGBTQ community. Several months ago however we started to be informed of nasty tricks played by Matt Heinz in past campaigns stretching back years. For this reason we withheld our endorsement of Dr. Heinz and any other candidate in CD2 pending further research.
Earlier today, media reports of a Democratic candidate for the CD2 House of Representatives seat trying to remove another strong, valid and highly viable from the primary ballot via dirty tricks, attempting to use the courts as a weapon. It has been verified that Dr. Matt Heinz has and is attempting to force Ann Kirkpatrick, a candidate far superior to himself, from the ballot. He says she has more than one house, something that Matt Heinz himself is “guilty” of.
Stonewall Democrats of Arizona have denounced dirty candidates in the past and we do so again today. We find Matt Heinz attempts despicable and, as of today, Stonewall denounces him and will never again support him for ANY elected office.
As of this evening, we at Stonewall Arizona have endorsed the candidate for CD2 Representative that we should have endorsed right from the very start. We apologize for having waited so long. This evening we proudly and staunchly endorse and encourage you to vote for Ann Kirkpatrick for the office of CD2 U.S. Representative.
