Congressman Meadows: ‘We need conservative leaders like Andy Biggs who will put the interests of the American people before the interests of the Washington establishment’
PHOENIX (May 11) – North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows today announced his endorsement of Senate President Andy Biggs for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District. A leader in the House Freedom Caucus, Congressman Meadows is known among conservatives throughout the country for taking on the Washington establishment and restoring conservative principles to Congress.
“As co-founders of the House Freedom Caucus, Congressman Salmon and I have seen first hand the influence that conservatives can have on Washington when they band together,” Congressman Meadows said. “Replacing Matt’s leadership and commitment to the cause will be difficult, but Andy Biggs has proven himself worthy and ready to carry Salmon’s legacy for the Fifth Congressional District of Arizona. Now more than ever, we need conservative leaders like Andy Biggs who will put the interests of the American people before the interests of the Washington establishment. Andy’s record in the Arizona legislature has proven he has the experience to lead and courage to stand for what is right, even when it is politically unpopular. This is why I am proud to join Congressman Salmon in endorsing Andy Biggs for the U.S. House of Representatives.”
“I am grateful to have the support from a true conservative icon like Congressman Mark Meadows,” Senator Biggs said. “His courageous leadership in Congress, and in the House Freedom Caucus, is both bold and inspiring and has changed Washington for the better. Representatives like Congressman Meadows, Salmon and Franks provide us with the hope that we can, and will, return our country to a government for the people and by the people. I look forward to fighting the Washington establishment alongside Congressman Meadows in Congress.”
