The events will take place in Tucson, Scottsdale, Prescott and Lake Havasu City this month and are on a RSVP basis for in-person attendance, although the organizers state there will be a livestream of the events as well.
Look Ahead America is run by Matt Braynard, who briefly worked on the data team for Donald Trump's 2016 campaign . The group has come under scrutiny for organizing the J6 rallies and for claiming donations as tax deductible while losing its tax deductible status.
Bennett is the state chairman for Look Ahead America, while Julie Fisher, his deputy liaison, is the group's state operations coordinator. Fisher also worked for the Trump campaign in Arizona in 2020.
Bennett previously told the Arizona Mirror that he is on a “leave of absence" from the organization to focus on the election review when asked if he was involved with planning or organizing the January 6 “political prisoners" events.
The former secretary of state and ex-Arizona Senate president did not respond to a request for comment asking for clarification on what exactly the town halls would focus on or if he was still on a “leave of absence" from the organization.
At least one of the town halls will take place at the location of a known purveyor of election misinformation. On Oct. 21, the town hall will take place at Scottsdale Studios, a frequent promoter of election fraud conspiracy theories that was also given access to the audit.
Susan Wood, the woman behind Scottsdale Studios, was connected to “audit" spokesman Randy Pullen through Fisher, who also now works for Look Ahead America, according to previously released documents.
The video-based platform has twice been kicked off of YouTube — once as Scottsdale Studios and again when it rebranded as Arizona Conservative News — for violating the terms of services. It has since moved to Rumble, a popular video platform for right-wing outlets and personalities, which often rebroadcasts clips from other shows.
