ARIZONA SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE DAVID GOWAN TO RUN FOR U.S. CONGRESS
Conservative Republican with Proven Record will make D.C. “Respect the West”
Phoenix, AZ (October 5th, 2015) – Arizona Speaker of the House David Gowan today announced his candidacy for Arizona’s First Congressional District.
“It has been my sincere honor to serve the people of Arizona in the House of Representatives for the past seven years. Since first taking office in 2009, I have focused on the conservative values instilled in me by my father and refined through years of fighting for our shared Arizonan values.”
“While most candidates rely on promises of what they will do, I prefer to be judged on my conservative record and leadership. As your Congressman, I will continue working to shrink the size and scope of government, I will fight to restore our Constitutional rights, I will make securing our borders the priority it ought to be, and I will work to ensure that our government’s focus is on getting out of the way of the private sector so that we can unleash our economy and create the millions of jobs we need to get our nation back on track. I will also stand for our values, work to defund Planned Parenthood, protect innocent life, defend our family values, and stop Common Core.”
Speaker Gowan continued, “We’ve got a good field of nice candidates who will claim they are the greatest conservatives of all time. Some have no record, some have small records, and some have mixed records – the biggest difference between us all is that with me, the voters know they can rely on my campaign promises to be kept, and my positions here in Arizona to be exactly the same once I get to Washington, D.C.”
David Gowan was first elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in 2008, where he took the lead in organizing the legislature’s conservatives into a meaningful and often decisive force. He founded the Liberty Caucus which grew from five members into the success it is today. In fact, the entire current elected House and Senate leadership are members of the Liberty Caucus.
Gowan has an extensive conservative record and boasts the best record of any candidate running, on issues like spending, taxes, protecting life, 2nd Amendment rights, state sovereignty, border security, school choice, fighting Common Core, and more. He is also the only candidate running who has proven he knows how to shrink government. In fact, the $11.2 Billion state budget he inherited is now $2 Billion smaller 7 years later.
David Gowan is Southern Arizona’s first Speaker in approximately 30 years. He and his wife Jessica, and their two boys live in Cochise County.
