Momentum builds as Tobin Announces Key Endorsements in Pinal County

Arizona Speaker of the House Andy Tobin is proud to announce the support of three key leaders in Pinal County, the most populated county in Arizona’s First Congressional District. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, Coolidge Mayor Tom Shope, and Eloy Mayor J.R. Nagy announced their support for Tobin, stressing his ability to take on Washington and fight for Arizona.

“Andy has a proven record of fighting to enforce the law and protect Arizonans from illegal drug cartels and human smuggling,” said Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. “We need more people in Washington who have stood tall against illegal immigration and understand its negative effects not only on Arizona but the entire country. As the Sheriff of Pinal County, I see the consequences of the federal government’s refusal to secure our border everyday. I’m confident that Andy Tobin is the only person in this race with the experience, record and the commitment to public safety and border security. That’s why I am endorsing Speaker Tobin for U.S. Congress.”

“Andy Tobin is a no-nonsense conservative who puts rural Arizona above petty politics and works tirelessly to affect change in Pinal County,” said Coolidge Mayor Tom Shope. “Andy has demonstrated time and again that the fight for Arizona’s economy and jobs is a fight that he will take to Washington. I believe that he is the only candidate in this race with the record to affect change in Washington on behalf of rural Arizonans. That is why I am endorsing Andy Tobin for United States Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”

“As Mayor of Eloy, it is my sincerest honor to endorse House Speaker Andy Tobin for the United States Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District. Andy has demonstrated that he is a strong conservative who understands the values of rural Arizonans,” said Eloy Mayor J.R. Nagy. “During his time as Speaker, Andy has overseen historic budget cuts and stood with rural Arizona in the fight against Obamacare. I am endorsing Andy today because I believe that he is the only candidate in the race who can succeed in taking Arizona’s fight to Washington.”

“It means the world to me personally that Sheriff Babeu and Mayors Shope and Nagy have endorsed my campaign for Congress. These three leaders are on the front lines of public safety and job creation. They understand that Washington is broken. I’m honored to have their confidence and to take Arizona’s fight to the halls of Congress.”

Speaker Tobin will be addressing the Maricopa Republican Club in the City of Maricopa along with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles at 7:00pm. Click here for more information and directions.
