Senate President Andy Biggs Announces Bid for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District

Seeks to replace Rep. Matt Salmon, who will serve as campaign chairman

PHOENIX (February 25) – Arizona Senate President Andy Biggs today announced he will run for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District. Biggs, a 25-year Gilbert resident, made the announcement following U.S. Representative Matt Salmon’s announcement earlier today that he is retiring from the office.

“I never envisioned running for Congress, but Matt’s decision to return home leaves a void that must be filled by the kind of strong, conservative voice that the people of Arizona’s 5th District have come to expect and that they deserve,” President Biggs said. “As a state legislator, and as Senate President, I have consistently demonstrated my ability to be a conservative leader who can build the necessary coalitions to pass meaningful reforms. I am ready to take my proven 14-year record to Washington and be that strong conservative voice for the East Valley.”

“My decision to leave Congress and return home was one of the hardest of my career. But I couldn’t be more pleased that Andy has decided to run for my seat and continue the fight to return our nation to the values that made it great,” Rep. Salmon said. “Andy’s record as a public servant is impeccably conservative. As a state legislator, he’s proven himself to be a tireless advocate for lower taxes and less regulation. As Senate President, he has proven his commitment to advancing legislation that will make government smaller, more efficient and more accountable to the people.”

President Biggs campaign for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District will focus on the following principles:

  • Fighting day and night to restore limited government, fiscal responsibility and pro-growth economic policies to the nation’s capitol;
  • Protecting the nation’s porous borders and working to solve the illegal immigration crisis;
  • Pledging to be a passionate advocate for the heroes who made enormous sacrifices while serving our nation proudly, as well as the men and women who wear a uniform today and defend our homeland.

“I am excited and grateful to kick-off my campaign with Matt as my Chairman. As a co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus, he is a true champion for the conservative movement and has served his constituents with the highest esteem,” Biggs continued. “His leadership will be sorely missed, and I am honored to have his full support for my campaign.

“I look forward to meeting the voters of Arizona’s 5th Congressional district in the coming months, and continuing in Matt’s footsteps of fighting for conservative principles in Washington.”

“I’ve known Andy and his family for more than two decades, and his character is one of integrity and devotion,” Congressman Salmon concluded. “I am thrilled to chair his campaign and I am committed to doing everything I can to ensure he is successful in representing the wonderful people of Arizona’s 5th Congressional District.”
