Do Arizona’s Senate Candidates Agree that Jan 6 Insurrection Was “Legitimate Political Discourse”? 

PHOENIX — Over the weekend, the Republican National Committee once again attempted to rewrite history and rebrand last year’s January 6th attack on our democracy, calling it  “legitimate political discourse.”

To be clear, participants in the attack have been charged with seditious conspiracy. At least seven people died in connection to the attack. More than 150 law enforcement officers were injured.

This raises the question: Do Mark Brnovich, Jim Lamon, Blake Masters, Mick McGuire, and Justin Olson agree — is violently assaulting police officers “legitimate political discourse”?

“These Republicans are willing to say or do anything to earn (or buy) an endorsement or solicit a quick campaign contribution, but characterizing the January 6th attack as ‘legitimate political discourse’ is beyond the pale, even for them,” said ADP spokesperson Hannah Goss. “Already the GOP Senate primary candidates have shown they’re comfortable spreading objectively false election conspiracy theories and participating in a fake elector scam — but will they minimize nearly one thousand instances of assault on law enforcement? Every single Senate primary candidate must make it clear to Arizona voters whether or not they support this disgusting characterization of January 6th.”
