PHOENIX (July 24, 2012) – Leah Campos Schandlbauer today announced that former Arizona State University Quarterback Andrew Walter has endorsed her campaign for Arizona’s 9th District. Walter also played in the NFL for the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots.
He released the following statement:
“I am endorsing Leah because she’s a proven leader who has served our country with honor and distinction in the CIA. She has shown the capacity to remain calm and think clearly in high-pressure situations. Plus, her roots are grounded in the same community she seeks to represent,” Walter said. “It’s clear Leah possesses an unparalleled understanding of both the foreign policy and economic challenges facing our country today – as well as their solutions.
“Most importantly, Leah embodies the phrase ‘public servant,’ a quality so desperately needed in Congress, where far too many of our elected officials otherwise embrace the phrase ‘self-servant.’”
