Sonoran Alliance has learned from a reliable anonymous source that gubernatorial candidate Scott Smith plans to roll out an endorsement by Congressman Matt Salmon sometime next week.
For many in the Republican ranks this comes as a shock because Salmon is a strong conservative who rightly opposes Obamacare and Comprehensive Immigration Reform, also known as Amnesty. The former Mayor of Mesa is strongly on record for supporting the Obamacare Medicaid expansion and Comprehensive Immigration Reform (Amnesty). He also opposed SB 1070.
Grassroots activists will likely be perplexed if not angered by the endorsement as Smith tries to re-invent himself using the conservative credentials of others.
