Gosar Campaign Announces Significant Endorsement

Flagstaff, AZ. June 3, 2010: The Gosar for Congress campaign is proud to announce that former Coconino County Sheriff, Joe Richards has endorsed Dr. Gosar in his bid to win the Republican Party’s nomination to defeat Ann Kirkpatrick this summer.

Sheriff Richards spent 32 years as sheriff of Coconino County making him one of the longest serving Sheriffs in U.S. history. With a total of 44 years in law enforcement, Richards retired in 2004 and has remained active in Northern Arizona, while pursuing a second career as an artist.

Richards, who joins Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in supporting Dr. Gosar, had this to say about his endorsement, “It is my belief that our country and more specifically our district deserves to be represented fairly and honestly.  It is time that our representatives went back serving the People’s interest instead of their own.  In my 44 years in law enforcement and 32 years as Sheriff of Coconino County, I have seen far too many politicians say one thing and then do another.  The era of platitudes and spin must come to an end. I believe that Dr. Paul Gosar is just the kind of straight talking leader rural Arizona needs.  He is a common sense, no-nonsense small businessman. I believe he has the right background and the right message to give rural Arizona a real voice in Washington.  That is why I have endorsed Dr. Gosar.”

Dr. Gosar had this to say about Sheriff Richards’ endorsement, “My family and I have admired Sheriff Richards for over 25 years.  When I opened my dental practice in Flagstaff in 1985 Sheriff Richards was already highly respected by the folks in our community. He remains as popular today as the day he retired from office.  To have him endorse me and my campaign is extremely humbling.  The Sheriff and I have had numerous conversations regarding the challenges facing our communities. I am anxious to work with him as we fight to bring common sense back to Washington.”

Dr. Gosar,  a 25 year resident of Flagstaff, father of three, sports and hunting enthusiast has been traveling all over Congressional District One for the past several months and has enjoyed meeting with supporters who share his belief that his background, and his experience in rural Arizona’s way of life, make him the GOP favorite to unseat Kirkpatrick.


Gosar has been endorsed by the American Dental Political Action Committee, Pinal County Supervisor Bryan Martyn, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and NRA past President Bob Corbin to name a few.  He is an Arizona’s former “Dentist of the Year”, who has practiced general dentistry in Flagstaff for more than 25 years.

    No thanks! I would never support any Dr. Pauls! McCain for the win!

  2. So, Gosar’s still “running.” News to me. Does he even still live here?

  3. Antifederalist says

    T Junion, get off the drugs. Gosar is running in CD 1 to unseat Ann Kirkpatrick. he’s not running for Senate like McCain is. Your statement is completely non sequitur.

  4. CD-1 has Goser and Beauchamps running (R) and who’s the third?

  5. Wow! Endorsed by Joe Richards *and* the American Dental PAC? Man, the other candidates might as well drop out now.
