Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Endorses Andy Biggs
August 25, 2016
“Andy Biggs will fight for balanced budgets, to stop the federal government from stealing from future generations to fund services it’s unwilling to pay for today.”
Gilbert – Today, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorsed Andy Biggs for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District. The Tea Party Patriots have a large grassroots following in the East Valley, Arizona and nationwide. The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund becomes the latest national conservative organization to endorse Andy Biggs for Congress, following the American Conservative Union, FreedomWorks PAC, Club for Growth Action, Concerned Women for America PAC and the Family Research Council PAC.
Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin release the following statement:
“Matt Salmon is one of the finest Constitutional conservatives in the Congress. His record of service proves he understands the fundamental political split in this country – not between Republicans and Democrats, or even between liberals and conservatives, but between those inside the Washington Beltway and the rest of us, who pay for them. Filling his shoes will be difficult.
“The good news is that Congressman Salmon, looking out for his constituents, came up with a succession plan, and recruited Andy Biggs to run for the GOP nomination to replace him. And we can see why – Andy’s track record in the Arizona legislature speaks to his conservative bona fides, his courage, and his willingness to fight for his principles, even if that means taking on leaders in his own party. For instance, he doesn’t just understand the damages done by ObamaCare, he fought it – even against the wishes of a Governor of his own party, who wrongly wanted to implement ObamaCare at the state level by expanding Medicaid. That’s the kind of independent thinking and intestinal fortitude we need more of in Washington, DC.
“Andy Biggs will fight for balanced budgets, to stop the federal government from stealing from future generations to fund services it’s unwilling to pay for today. He supports a Balanced Budget Amendment, and fundamental tax reform to make the tax code fairer, flatter, and simpler to understand, so we can generate economic growth and new jobs. He wants term limits for Members of Congress, and thinks they should live under the laws they pass – and, hence, he supports repealing Congress’ illegal special exemption from ObamaCare. He opposes Common Core, and amnesty for illegal immigrants, and is determined to secure our borders.
“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Andy Biggs for the Republican nomination for the seat representing Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District, and I urge all voters in Arizona’s Fifth District to make a plan to be a voter for him in the August 30 primary and in the November general election.”
Andy Biggs, candidate for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District, released the following statement:
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund,” said Andy Biggs. “Voters in Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District want a representative who will continue the fight for a secure border and a more limited, constitutional form of government. The Tea Party Patriots have a strong and loud voice here in the East Valley, and I could not be more honored to champion our shared values in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
