Endorsments

Congressman Matt Salmon

"Andy’s record as a public servant is impeccably conservative. As a state legislator, he’s proven himself to be a tireless advocate for lower taxes and less regulation. As Senate President, he has proven his commitment to advancing legislation that will make government smaller, more efficient and more accountable to the people."

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio

"We need leaders like Andy in Congress who will work to secure our borders and uphold our immigration laws. I know that Andy Biggs won't ever compromise his beliefs, and that is what makes him a perfect replacement for Representative Matt Salmon."

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery

"Andy Biggs has been an honorable public servant and strong supporter of law enforcement for many years. It is my honor to endorse his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives. Andy has always stood for the full and fair enforcement of our laws, including our immigration laws, and for securing our borders. He has steadfastly adhered to a faithful application of our U.S. Constitution and I have no doubt he will always act with integrity and hold himself accountable to the voters who entrust him with elective office. Please vote for Andy Biggs in the August 30th Primary."

Maricopa County Supervisor Denny Barney

"I have been fortunate to know Andy for many years and can attest to his solid character. As an elected official and Senate President he has always been responsive to any issue that has crossed his desk. He has also shown an ability to build a strong consensus on issues important to taxpayers such as tax reform, pension reform, and working to protect the life of the unborn. Andy Biggs is the type of leader the East Valley needs in Washington. He has integrity and is a proven conservative. I am proud to endorse his candidacy for U.S. House of Representatives."

Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Andy Biggs for a number of years, and have fought side by side with him on the issues that matter most for Arizonans. Andy is a man of integrity and of principle, and his commitment to advancing our conservative values is unrivaled. When it comes to replacing a conservative icon like Matt Salmon, I know that Andy Biggs is the clear choice for Congressional District Five constituents. I’m excited to endorse a man of his caliber for the U.S. House of Representatives."

Maricopa County Supervisor Clint Hickman

"Andy Biggs has shown tremendous leadership and foresight as Arizona Senate President, and those qualities will make him an extraordinarily effective member of Congress. I have long admired his humble demeanor and workhorse approach to serving his constituents. Washington has no chance at changing Andy Biggs -- but Andy Biggs will most certainly change Washington. He has my unwavering support."

Former State Representative Justin Pierce

"Andy's leadership skills and commitment to the conservative movement are second to none. He is the candidate who best understands the needs and values of the East Valley, which is why he will make us proud as our next Congressman. I am very proud to endorse his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives."

Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan

"I strongly believe that Andy Biggs is the right person to help us continue this fight. He has proven himself to be one of Arizona's most influential conservative leaders, and is not afraid to take on politicians who want to grow government, including taking on those from his own party when necessary. Andy understands the problems that our country is facing and has the experience to make a difference on day one. Our country needs more leaders in Congress like Andy Biggs who have the courage to challenge the Washington establishment and heed the will of the American people. I am proud to endorse his campaign and look forward to working with him in Congress."

North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows

"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."

Arizona Police Association

The men and women of the Arizona Police Association who comprise our membership are grateful for your support of law enforcement and wish to thank you for your service and dedication to our profession and the citizens of the United States of America and the State of Arizona." -Joe R. Clure, Executive Director

United States Senator Mike Lee

“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.”

You have solicited the help and input of rank and file Border Patrol Agents, and we are sure that with you in office, agents’ needs will be met. Your no-nonsense approach and belief that our country was founded on checks and balances afforded in our great Constitution is extremely important to our nation’s future. We are confident that you will win and we look forward to continue working with you in the future.”

The NRA Political Victory Fund

The NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has endorsed Andy Biggs for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 5th Congressional District of Arizona. Andy has a proven pro-Second Amendment record and is committed to protecting our right to self-defense! For the following reasons, Andy Biggs has received our endorsement and “A” rating:
  • Supports Right-to-Carry – Voted for the strongest Concealed Carry Reciprocity legislation ever to come before the U.S. Congress, which would ensure that the nearly 20 million law-abiding Americans who can carry a concealed firearm in their home state are able to do so in any other state that does not prohibit it.
  • Supports Veterans’ Second Amendment Rights – Voted for legislation to protect veterans’ Second Amendment rights.
  • Opposes Backdoor Gun Ban – Voted to strike down an Obama-era regulation that would have stripped Social Security recipients of their Second Amendment rights without due process.
  • Opposes Semi-Auto Ban – Opposes Senator Dianne Feinstein’s failed semi-auto ban that would ban commonly owned semi-automatic firearms used for hunting, recreational shooting and self-defense.
  • Opposes Criminalizing Private Firearm Transfers – Opposes the Schumer/Pelosi/Bloomberg “universal” background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of firearms which, according to the Obama Justice Department, is only enforceable through federal firearms registration.
  • Opposes Government Blacklists – Opposes legislation denying persons on secret government lists their Second Amendment right to purchase or own a firearm without due process.

Chandler Councilmember Terry Roe

“I have known Andy for a number of years, and I have seen his commitment to serving the people of Arizona,” Roe said “Residents of Chandler and the East Valley deserve a Congressman who will continue fighting the good fight, just like Congressman Matt Salmon has throughout his time in the U.S. House of Representatives.

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."

Mesa City Councilmember Chris Glover

The Club's PAC enthusiastically backs Andy Biggs and believes he will bring that same much-needed drive for economic conservatism to Washington."

Former Mesa Mayor and Current Councilmember Alex Finter

“Andy Biggs has been a stellar conservative throughout his time in the Arizona Legislature,” Alex Finter said. “I have spent the majority of my career working as a public servant, both as a Fire Captain and as an elected official, and I know that Andy understands the needs of our public safety community. That is why he has been endorsed by the leading public safety organizations in Arizona. Andy will bring a wealth of experience to the U.S. House of Representatives, and will be an outstanding leader for the East Valley in Washington. Please join me in voting for Andy Biggs for Congress.”

Freedomworks PAC

“The residents of Arizona’s Fifth District have grown accustomed to the bold conservative leadership of Rep. Matt Salmon. Andy Biggs is a natural successor for this seat,” said FreedomWorks PAC Chairman Adam Brandon. “During his time in the Arizona Senate, Andy Biggs demonstrated a commitment to free market economic policies, limited government, and individual freedom. We have no doubt that he will join the ranks of the House Freedom Caucus and fight for these timeless principles on which the nation was founded and the conservative values of Arizona’s Fifth District.”

Arizona Rock Products Association

"Andy can be counted on to carry that same leadership to Washington, D.C. That's why I support Andy Biggs for U.S. Congress."

Todd Rathner

“Andy didn’t just vote the right way on these issues, but most importantly he was a true champion for the Second Amendment no matter the costs. Arizona’s gun owners can trust Andy to support their rights when he represents us in Congress.”

Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum

"We must elect leaders who have proven they will stand for us and with us no matter the cost.
