February 26, 2016
Marks third endorsement for the Senate President
PHOENIX (February 26) – U.S. Congressman Trent Franks today announced his endorsement of Arizona Senate President Andy Biggs for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District.
“With the retirement of my closest and truest friend in Congress, Matt Salmon, I understand the vital importance of replacing him with another patriotic conservative,” Congressman Trent Franks said. “I wholeheartedly believe that Andy Biggs is the right man to take up the legacy that Matt Salmon is leaving behind. I have worked with Andy for a number of years, and I have been impressed by his commitment to the Constitution and the principles of conservatism. As a true conservative, Andy’s impeccable record of fighting for limited government and for the protection of all life shows me that he will continue those fights in the U.S. Congress. I know that Andy will stand for all that we hold dear in this country and will represent his constituents with the utmost honor and integrity. I offer Andy my full support as his campaign moves forward, and look forward to working with him in Congress.”
Franks’ endorsement marks the third endorsement for Biggs, behind Congressman Matt Salmon and Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio.
“Trent Franks is a conservative champion, and a man who has been a friend to me for many years,” Senator Andy Biggs said. “His wisdom and steadfast adherence to the Constitution is beyond admirable, and I count myself extremely fortunate to have received his blessing and his endorsement for my campaign for Congress. I hope to one day stand side by side with him in defense of limited government, strong national security, and the protection of all life.”
