July 12, 2016
Becomes second major national conservative organization to back Andy Biggs
GILBERT – Today, The American Conservative Union, one of the nation’s leading conservative organizations announced their endorsement for Andy Biggs for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District. The American Conservative Union becomes the second major national conservative organization to endorse Biggs for Congress, behind FreedomWorks PAC. Andy Biggs has a 95% lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union.
“I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to meet with Senator Biggs and discuss his conservative approach to public policy. Biggs fought hard against unaffordable Obamacare Medicaid expansion and his two consecutive ACU Ratings Awards for Conservative Excellence reflect his strong support for conservative principles on a wide range of issues, both economic and cultural,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “Biggs has demonstrated his courage and his leadership by explaining how seemingly-popular spending programs, like Obamacare and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, fail to meet the needs of intended beneficiaries. I hope that all conservatives will vote for Andy Biggs in the Arizona Republican Primary on August 30th.”
“The American Conservative Union has been championing the fight for a more limited, constitutional form of government for over 50 years,” Andy Biggs said. “I have always admired their projects and efforts to inform the public about the problems and consequences that come with more expansive government policies. I am humbled to have their endorsement for my campaign, and I look forward to continuing my fight for conservative values alongside the American Conservative Union when I am elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.”
