Arizona was a Republican stronghold for decades. That has been changing drastically over the last few years. In 2018, somewhat Democrat Kyrsten Sinema defeated Martha McSally for a senate seat. In 2020, Mark Kelly secured the other senate seat, and Joe Biden secured Arizona’s 11 electoral college votes.
That doesn’t mean that Arizona Republicans are giving up on the state. Jim Lamon is trying to become Kelly’s Republican opponent. And he felt the best way to endear Republican voters to him was with vulgar slogans. But Yahoo recently shut down Lamon’s ad, which ended with “Let’s Go Brandon.”
In the ad, Lamon tells viewers:
“If you are pissed off about the direction of our country, let’s go. If you’re ready to secure the border and stop the invasion, let’s go. If you want to keep corrupt politicians from rigging elections, let’s go. I’m Jim Lamon. Let’s take the fight to Joe Biden and show him we the people put America first. The time is now. Let’s go Brandon.”
Yahoo told Mediaite that they could not approve the ad due to the inflammatory language. The company did add, “If that is excluded we would be able to approve it.”
Lamon, of course, is claiming that he’s being censored by both Yahoo and the New York Times. Check out his complaints below, courtesy of Patriot Takes:
