Longtime FOTB (Friend Of The Blog) Cliff Schecter brings a serious matter to our attention this week: Mark Finchem, the GOP nominee for Arizona's secretary of state, is an election-denying loon and well, we need to stop him.

"Where do Republicans come up with these names? Tudor Dixon, Blake Masters - it's like they have to make these names up, don't they? Now we have an election denier who tried to overthrow the 2020 election, Mark Finchem, Filcher, Finchem, that's it," Schecter said.

"I say all of this to make fun of them, but I also say all this because it's very important that you know that Mark Finchem of Arizona is now the nominee to be secretary of state. He's an election denier in 2020. He's a lunatic who would have overthrown the United States of America, a 200-plus year experiment in democracy with many problems along the way. He would have overthrown our constitution. He would have overthrown our rule of law.

"He probably would have arrested people like me and you and taken us into a state of martial law - not m-a-r-s-h-a-l-l like Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks it's spelled, but the real thing. He needs to be rejected. Mark Finchem needs to be stopped. You need to know who he is, he's running for secretary of state in Arizona. Stop him."

You already know the Democrat, Adrian Fontes. This is the guy who did last week's great video explaining what the Second Amendment really means. Last week, when he won the nomination, he said:

“This is the defining race for our Republic," said Fontes, the former Maricopa County recorder, who oversaw elections in 2018 and, most notably, 2020. "It will let the world know whether we will surrender to foolish conspiracies or whether we will support our Republic that Benjamin Franklin so eloquently said needs to be kept.”

I really like this guy. You should, too. Give him money, it will help.

Can you help us out?
