Andrew Walter (#AZ09) Gets Support From Semi-Dark "Liberty For All Super PAC" (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

Republicans and independents in Congressional District 9 can expect to see a mailer supporting Andrew Walter in his battle with Wendy Rogers for the GOP nomination.  Although $7,000 does not seem to buy much in the world of politics these days.

The national super PAC Liberty For All filed an independent expenditure report with the Federal Election Commission today, noting that it spent $6,950 on voter mail and $542.10 on voter calls, in support of Walter.  (That brings their total spending on his behalf to $14,334.20.

Liberty for All garnered attention in 2012 for its young founders/funders (college students John Ramsey and Preston Bates), and for putting $382,425 behind Jeff Flake in his Senate primary battle against Wil Cardon.  (ALL of its IE's in 2012 came in Republican primary battles.)

In their endorsement of Walter earlier this year, Liberty for All praised his "American values of personal and economic freedom" and decried the "extreme partisanship" of incumbent Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9).

Much of the super PAC's monies - $80,000, as of June 30 - are run through "Liberty for All, Inc.", which does not disclose its donors.
