While Herschel Walker is currently being rebuked by his own family over the nature of his latest scandal, Arizona’s Trump candidate for Senate is facing a dark chapter of his own past as well – as his former classmates have come out to denounce the candidate in an open letter to the AZ Mirror.
In their disparagement of Blake Masters, former classmates and teachers of Tucson’s Green Fields Country Day School, which closed in 2019, called him “dangerous for Arizona,” citing his use of the Big Lie in order to secure the nomination and an endorsement from the former guy – but just pointing out that this was the inevitable way for an opportunist like Masters, who has spent much of his career using fiery and dangerous rhetoric. Masters proved himself to be someone who, like many of the other Republican candidates for Senate in this race, was more than willing to throw away his friends in pursuit of power.
Perhaps the worst thing about the letter is that it was a good review of every last quote Senate hopeful Blake Masters has gone on record with – his plan to support a national abortion ban as well as to gut the social safety net by privatizing Medicare and Social Security. Republicans haven’t missed a moment to show us who they are over the course of this election.
It’s time to take them at their word and do all we can to help get Sen. Mark Kelly re-elected to a full term. Volunteer or donate to his campaign today – as this is a race that will be close regardless of how widely despised Masters is by the people who know him personally. If we put in the work however, we will win – and winning and keeping the Senate is a must.
