Arizona's leading conservative hits weekend primetime

"I am thrilled to once again bring a strong conservative voice to Arizona's airwaves," said Russell Pearce. "And I'm excited to continue being a thorn in the side of liberals who think America's best days are long gone. They're wrong. Our nation is worth fighting for and Arizona conservatives are proof."
The Russell Pearce Show will soon launch a corresponding website, Facebook and Twitter page, and Pearce said he would continue his state and national speaking engagements to further energize conservatives in 2014 and beyond.
"The looney left will try to lie, cheat and steal to keep what power they've got," Pearce said. "What I want to do, what my show is all about, is getting people motivated, energized and excited about America again. Let the liberals whine and cry. We've got real work to do, so tune in, call in, and let's make our voices heard!"
