June 24, 2016
“I have full confidence that Andy will seamlessly step into Salmon’s shoes”
GILBERT – Today, United States Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) endorsed Andy Biggs for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District. Born in Mesa, Senator Lee is universally known as a constitutional expert and one of the most conservative members of the U.S. Senate. Senator Lee is the latest conservative leader to support Andy Biggs for Congress.
“The House is losing one of its top warriors in the battle against D.C. insiders with the impending retirement of Matt Salmon,” Senator Lee said. “It is critical that Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District replace him with someone just as committed to limited government and the U.S. Constitution. Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District also needs someone who will put forward a bold, positive, conservative agenda with solutions to solve our nation’s problems. That person is Andy Biggs. I have full confidence that Andy will seamlessly step into Salmon’s shoes, and I am proud to endorse his campaign for Congress.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Senator Mike Lee,” Andy Biggs said. “Senator Lee is a hero of mine. I look forward to working with him when I serve in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is known for standing up to the D.C. Establishment. I will join him in this battle in January 2017. Constituents of Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District deserve someone who will join Senator Lee in fighting the D.C. establishment and who will stand unequivocally for the U.S. Constitution. I am thankful for Senator Lee’s endorsement, and I am excited to join him in Congress in the very near future.”
