Arizona veterans call out Richard Carmona for misleading voters about Jeff Flake’s record of helping veterans

PHOENIX – It’s apparent to anyone watching television recently that Richard Carmona and his fellow Democrats have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to mislead voters about Jeff Flake’s record of supporting veterans.

Veterans that Jeff Flake has helped over years are upset with these false attacks. In a new ad released today by the Flake campaign, veterans set the record straight.


April White, U.S. Army Veteran, Queen Creek, AZ:  “The ads for Richard Carmona saying Jeff Flake is against veterans make me sick. The TV news fact check says they’re misleading ( They say he’s really voted, for nearly every single veteran and military bill that’s come up. Let me tell you what else he’s done. He’s taken the time to help one individual vet who was struggling against the bureaucracy to secure her benefits. I’m that vet. I don’t have any connections, but at a very low point in my life a friend said Jeff Flake was a good man and I should reach out to him. He worked his tail off, took on the big boys and was a Godsend.”

Rob Polston, U.S. Army Veteran, Chandler, AZ: “Arizonans know Jeff Flake, what kind of man he is. He’s tight with the budget, but he also knows the sacrifices that we veterans have made. He’s on our side.”

Bill Kenny, U.S. Army Veteran, Fountain Hills, AZ: “Carmona? His ads twist the truth. That’s what’s wrong with politics. Carmona says, he’s different, but boy, he’s not.”

April White: “Jeff Flake. This time I’ve got HIS back.”
