GOP Chair Tom Morrissey just sent out an e-mail touting that Maricopa County Sheriff Posse member Seagal was now confirmed as the special guest at next Tuesday's "Freedom Festival" fundraiser. Seagal will be introduced by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has not yet ruled out running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jon Kyl. Joe the Plumber became a political icon near the end of the 2008 presidential campaign of Arizona's other Senator, John McCain.
The fundraiser takes place July 26, 6:30pm, at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort.
Morrissey is also billing it as the "Restoration of the Republic", although it is also designed to restore the Arizona Republican Party to a positive balance sheet. As of June 30, the AZ GOP was nearly $35,000 in the hole. Disagreements among Arizona Republicans have prompted some to bypass the state party, funneling money in the 2010 campaign through the Yuma County Republican Party.
