The group behind the referendum effort, the United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives (URAPC), made the Nugent "pulpit moment" announcement in an e-mail to supporters this afternoon, urging volunteer circulators "to be there in force". Referendum proponents call the Medicaid expansion "OBrewercare" to emphasize what they see as the Governor's (and Republican legislators') support of Obamacare by accepting the federal funds.
URAPC has until September 11 to collect more than 86,405 valid signatures to prevent the expansion from going into effect until Arizona voters can decide the issue in November 2014.
The concert is this Sunday, at 7:30pm, at the Celebrity Theatre. And, what the heck, Ted, the stage is not going to rotate - meaning that approximately one-fourth of the seats are blocked off in the already-small venue. (Maybe the constant rotation is disorienting?)
