Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a Republican, announced his bid to the U.S. Senate on Thursday, portraying himself as a reliable and proven leader who’d fight for secure boundaries, oppose defunding the police, and defend civil liberties.
Brnovich, that has served as the state’s top prosecutor since 2015, stated in a June 10 campaign movie which”mistrust runs deep” among Republicans since they have”entrusted elected officials to protect us and our freedoms, and they failed,” with the barb seemingly aimed at Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) , whose picture functions as the backdrop for this fragment of this movie.
“Our very freedoms–from the Second Amendment to Life to practicing our faith–are at stake,” that he said in a statement. “Mark Kelly would rather hide in a corner waiting for orders from Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi than lead for Arizona.”
The son of immigrants who fled communism in the former Yugoslavia, Brnovich stated in the movie he has committed his career to upholding the rule of law and fighting for justice, while touting his record of shoving back against government overreach, handling”crony capitalism,” and”standing up against woke corporations and boardrooms that try to tell us how to live our lives while shipping jobs overseas.”
With the statement, Brnovich becomes the third Republican to throw his hat to the Republican main race, alongside Michael McGuire, a former adjutant general of the Arizona National Guard, along with solar-business executive Jim Lamon.
“Trust and freedom aren’t just buzz words for me,” Brnovich said in a statement. “Every day, I fight on behalf of Arizonans, going toe-to-toe with elected officials, bureaucrats, agencies, and corporations. I’ve spent my career taking on the hard fights,” he added.
