April 27th, 2022 (Scottsdale, AZ) – Yesterday, the Norton for Congress Campaign released their new ad “Entrepreneur” that will air widely on broadcast TV, cable, streaming services, and other mediums.

The new ad details Elijah’s extensive business experience over the last decade. When Elijah was only 21 years old with $1,000 and a dream, he began his business. Now, just ten years later his business operates worldwide, generates over 100MM in annual revenue, and employs over 100 people, most of whom live right here in the Phoenix-area.

“Elijah had the toughness and grit necessary to build his small business into a huge success, now he’s ready to take on the problems with Washington” said Elena Ehrlin, Campaign Manager for Norton. “Elijah is sick of corrupt Career politicians ruining this country. He is an entrepreneur, not a politician, and he is ready to put his experience to work”

Starting Off the Year $2.5 Million Strong.

“Congressman David Schweikert has failed his constituents and the voters are rightfully furious” Said Elena Ehrlin, Campaign Manager for Norton “Republicans are eager to have an ethical, conservative congressman in Elijah Norton rather than settling for a self-serving, dishonest, crook like David Schweikert.”
 
In 2020, David Schweikert received a unanimous formal Reprimand and fined $50,000 by his peers in Congress, and only a few months ago David was again forced to pay a $125,000 fine for a series of “knowing and willful” campaign finance misconduct. Furthermore, he used his donors’ money to pay the massive fine. His offenses include bank fraud, money laundering, and over $500,000 in missing funds.

Norton Campaign releases new ad on broadcast and Fox News!

This week, the Norton for Congress campaign released a new campaign ad titled “Stop Them.” Joe Biden and the DC Democrats are completely out of touch with the needs and realities of everyday citizens. Inflation is causing the cost to simply live to skyrocket, and they are doing nothing about it except spending more money. They are allowing a full-fledged invasion to occur at our southern border by not securing our borders. And to top it off, they relentlessly seek to indoctrinate our children.

We have had enough! We need to elect strong leaders that are going to fight for conservative values, and ensure we have a limited federal government. Elijah Norton will fight the far-left’s radical agenda by cutting taxes and regulations, securing our border, and ensuring America exhibits strength to the world, especially to our adversaries!

Watch “Stop Them” below, we are proud to be the first congressional campaign up and playing on your TV!

Our American leaders used to pave the way for prosperity and exceptionalism. Today, as America battles against peril, Joe Biden stands at the frontline of our adversary of progress.  

Joe Biden has abandoned his sense and has simply lost touch. This has never been more apparent than today as Biden delivered his first State of the Union address.

American families are suffering at the hands of failed far-Left policy resulting in record inflation, an invasion on our southern border, and a needless war brought on by weak leadership.  

It is outright unacceptable and abhorrent for Joe Biden to speak about “building back better” when his reckless government spending has caused our national debt to skyrocket. 

It is unacceptable for Joe Biden to speak about national security, when our own borders remain unlocked for criminals. 

Empty shelves, unaffordable gas, record inflation, incompetency. We cannot afford Joe Biden anymore; the cost is too high for the state of our union.

2022’s first Congressional TV in Arizona comes in the wake of the Federal Election Commission’s February 11th fine of Congressman David Schweikert’s campaign committee.

February 15, 2022 (Scottsdale, AZ)- In a district wide television and digital ad buy, Elijah Norton’s campaign for Congress in AZ-1 becomes the first Congressional Campaign up on television, as they release their newest campaign ad, “Knowingly and Willfully.”

On February 11, 2022, the Federal Election Commission fined David Schweikert’s campaign committee $125,000 for “knowingly and willfully converting campaign funds for personal use.” This is one of the highest fines in history assessed by the FEC against a sitting member of Congress.

Among Schweikert’s campaign finance violations, the Congressman has pled guilty to writing himself a fake six-figure loan and accepting nearly $300,000 in illegal donations, with at least $570,000 in campaign dollars being unaccounted for.

“After having already plead guilty to 11 ethical violations and being assessed a $50,000 fine by the House Ethics Committee, Congressman Schweikert continues to bring disgrace to Arizona and disappointment to the Republican party with this new $125,000 fine” said Brian Seitchik, Chief Strategist for the Norton Campaign. “While Congressman Schweikert has brushed his ethical violations off as simple clerical errors or the misconduct of staff, the FEC’s emphasis on Schweikert’s ‘knowing and willful’ conduct makes it resoundingly clear, the only federal building Shady Schweikert should be serving in is a federal penitentiary.”

David Schweikert forced to pay $125,000 fine from the Federal Election Commission.

BREAKING: David Schweikert forced to pay $125,000 fine from the Federal Election Commission.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Date: February 11, 2021

February 11, 2022 (Scottsdale, AZ)- Today, the Federal Election Commission fined Congressman David Schweikert $125,000 for “knowingly and willfully converting campaign funds for personal use” and a stack of campaign finance violations.
 
This fine confirms what we already know to be true, David Schweikert has failed to represent his district, and continually brings shame upon Arizona. In 2020, self-described “fiscal hero” David Schweikert was unanimously Reprimanded by every Republican and every Democrat and paid a $50,000 fine after the House Ethics Committee released findings that Schweikert committed 11 ethics violations. These crimes included defrauding a bank, money laundering through his campaign account, and more than half a million dollars in “missing” funds. Now in 2022, the Federal Election Commission condemns him for his continued deliberate campaign abuse over many years, spanning multiple election cycles.
 
“David Schweikert’s repeated violations have become a sideshow and embarrassment to the citizens of the district. David is a disgrace and embarrassment to our district. There is nothing conservative about corruption, Arizona deserves better. I call on David Schweikert’s immediate resignation from Congress.” Said Elijah Norton, who is running to replace David Schweikert in this year’s Republican Primary election.
 
Elijah is available for interviews upon request.

TEAM NORTON RELEASES NEW AD FEATURING FORMER SCHWEIKERT STAFFER

TEAM NORTON RELEASES NEW AD FEATURING FORMER SCHWEIKERT STAFFER

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
Date: February 7, 2022
Phone: (602) 704-0445
Contact: Press@NortonforArizona.com

February 7, 2022 (Scottsdale, AZ) – Today, Elijah Norton’s campaign for Congress released a new digital ad entitled “Betrayed” featuring Karen Garrett of Scottsdale, Congressman Schweikert’s campaign treasurer during the time of his numerous ethical violations.

Unbeknownst to Mrs. Garrett at the time, Congressman Schweikert was committing one of the “greatest” campaign coffer heists in our nation’s history. Mrs. Garrett was interviewed in 2020 by the House Ethics Committee; she was shocked to learn the enormity and seriousness of Schweikert’s deviance. According to the official summary report released by the House Ethics Committee, “Representative Schweikert’s campaign committee falsely reported that he had loaned the campaign $100,000, when no such loan had been made, and then falsely reported making $100,000 in disbursements, which served to adjust the campaign’s reported cash on hand that was propped up by the fictitious loan.”

“True leaders value the people that work for them, not take advantage of their trust” said Elena Ehrlin, Campaign Manager to Elijah Norton. “Congressman Schweikert’s betrayal and implication of one of his most valuable supporters speaks volumes to the consideration he affords each of his constituents.”

While Mrs. Garrett’s name has been cleared of responsibility, over $570,000 remains missing from David Schweikert’s campaign accounts to this day.
