August 26, 2016
“Many politicians lose track of what truly matters in their legislative service, but Andy has never been that man.”
Gilbert – Today, Andy Biggs, Republican candidate for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District, announced that he had been endorsed by Dr. James Dobson. Dr. Dobson founded Focus on the Family in 1977, and he was once referred as “the nation’s most influential evangelical leader” by the New York Times.
Dr. James Dobson released the following statement:
“It is my pleasure to be among the many solid conservatives who are supporting Andy Biggs’ candidacy for the United States House of Representatives for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District,”
“Andy clearly understands the need for religious freedom in our country. Many politicians lose track of what truly matters in their legislative service, but Andy has never been that man. Residents of Arizona’s 5th Congressional District deserve a representative who will uphold their conservative values in Congress, and I trust Andy will not cave to the powers of the Establishment.”
“Andy has been endorsed by Arizona Right to Life and other strong conservative organizations. I am confident he will support the Constitution and promote pro-family policies in Washington.”
“For years, I have joined millions of people across America in praying that God would raise-up leaders to restore this great nation. I am excited that Andy answered the call and has offered his services to the people of Arizona’s 5th District as their Representative in Congress.”
“As a private individual, I am honored to endorse Andy Biggs for Congress, and pray that his election will be the start of a new generation of leaders who will return this nation to the constitutional principles upon which it was founded.”
Andy Biggs, candidate for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District released the following statement:
“I am indeed honored and humbled by the endorsement and kind words from Dr. James Dobson. I appreciate his lifetime of service to our nation and to the preservation of religious freedom. There are few things more important in public service than protecting life, promoting the family and defending religious freedom and our Constitution. As Dr. Dobson stated, I am deeply committed to those actions, and I will not waver from my commitment when I am elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. I look forward to working alongside Dr. Dobson to that end.”
