ARIZONA CONGRESSMAN JOHN SHADEGG ENDORSES
JIM WARD FOR CONGRESS IN 2010
Scottsdale, AZ (January 22, 2010) — Jim Ward, Republican candidate for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District, today announced that U.S. Congressman John Shadegg (AZ-3) endorses his candidacy for Congress.
“I am proud to endorse Jim Ward. His focus on fiscal responsibility, tax reform and smaller government give him the conservative credentials to be the right kind of Representative we need in Congress today, and he is certainly the right candidate to beat Harry Mitchell this fall,” said Congressman Shadegg. “As an experienced businessman, Jim knows how to balance a budget, create jobs, and curb needless deficit spending. He will bring these important skills to Washington which will serve him well in his commitment to help create a more efficient, less intrusive government that promotes individual liberty and free markets,” he added.
“To be endorsed by such a true conservative warrior and leader as Congressman John Shadegg is an honor for me personally and also an inspiration to take back the House of Representatives this November. My promise to him is that I will be successful and I will spread his conservative legacy to the neighboring 5th District,” said Jim Ward. “I couldn’t have asked for a stronger vote of confidence to demonstrate to Arizonans that I can serve them well as their representative.”
Congressman Shadegg announced his retirement from Congress just last week and has declared his ongoing commitment to the mission of promoting conservative principles while remaining committed to preserving America’s freedom.
