(Publisher: This resolution was submitted from the floor of the Maricopa County GOP statutory meeting by a LOV3olutionary that hurdled multiple obstacles in order to make the presentation that would eventually result in a vote of over 90% in favor out of over 1500 Precinct Committeemen in attendance)
