FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Barry Goldwater Jr. Endorses Andy Tobin

“Andy has been tirelessly fighting for conservative values in Arizona for years.”

 

Former Congressman Barry Goldwater Jr.  announces his endorsement for Andy Tobin’s congressional campaign. Goldwater cites Andy’s battle-tested conservative values as reasons for his endorsement.

“In all the years I have known Andy Tobin, I have known him to be a fiscally responsible conservative who understands that the people he represents come first,” said former United States Congressman Barry Goldwater Jr. “Tobin is running for Congress because, like my father, he believes in states rights, limited government and personal freedoms. I have followed Andy as he led the fight against ObamaCare in Arizona from the law’s passage in 2010. I have followed his work at the legislature as he reduced government by 22%, made historic tax cuts and made Arizona one of the freest states when it comes to 2nd Amendment rights. Tobin will never stop fighting for conservative values in Arizona. He is the right candidate to represent Arizona’s 1st Congressional District in Washington. I endorse Andy Tobin wholeheartedly and I encourage everyone else in Arizona to support this great American as well.”

“My deepest thanks and appreciation go out to Barry Goldwater Jr. for his support,” said Tobin. “My mission is to faithfully fight to protect rural Arizona’s voice and vote in Washington.”

Letter from Arizona Fraternal Order of Police to Gary Kiehne

Andy Tobin Calls on Gary Kiehne to Exit CD-1 Race

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Andy Tobin Calls on Gary Kiehne to Exit CD-1 Race

Andy Tobin released the following statement today in response to comments by Gary Kiehne about Vietnamese-Americans and mass shootings:

“With his pattern of bizarre and deeply offensive remarks, Gary Kiehne has illustrated that he lacks the temperament, character and basic common sense to not only represent Arizona in Congress, but to even get elected. He should exit this race immediately and apologize in full for all of his remarks, not just some of them. To win this district and win against the Democrats in Washington, we need a candidate with a level head – which Mr. Kiehne clearly doesn’t have based on his numerous comments. This is a pattern, and Mr. Kiehne’s own partial apology is acknowledgment of the toxicity of these comments. Suggesting that mass killings are party affiliated is beyond the pale and insulting to the families and victims of these senseless killings. All of this raises the question: What other incendiary remarks has Mr. Kiehne made on tape that Democrats are waiting to release if he’s the nominee?”

“I have every confidence that Republican voters will reject such an offensive candidate. But, if he somehow wins the nomination, Mr. Kiehne will not only ensure Ann Kirkpatrick’s re-election, but he will be an anchor around the neck of every other Republican candidate in the state, from Governor on down.”

Speaker Andy Tobin has a long-record of defending the Second Amendment and fighting for border security. He has an A+ rating from the NRA and helped pass SB1070.

All three of Kiehne’s comments can be viewed here.

Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney Endorses Andy Tobin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney Endorses Andy Tobin

Andy Tobin is the conservative that rural Arizona needs…

Navajo County support continues to rally behind Andy Tobin with Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney’s endorsement today. Tobin has long been a fierce advocate for rural community roads, fire safety, water rights and economic development.

“Andy Tobin is the conservative leader that rural Arizona needs to fight for our practical way of life,” said Navajo County Supervisor David Tenney. “I have spent a lot of time working with Andy to fight for the issues that we care about here in Navajo County, and he has been a champion that gets things done. He has played a key part in the fight to restore much of the money that cities, towns and counties lost from our state’s Highway User Revenue Fund (HURF). As a rural lawmaker he knows that those funds make all the difference to maintaining roads in Navajo County. Andy also understands that Arizona relies heavily on the ability of forest industries to have access to our forests to restore their health, create jobs, reduce threats to our communities, supply clean water, and improve recreation and tourism. He understands that to fuel the rural business of Arizona and to protect our communities from disastrous wildfires, the federal government must use taxpayer resources wisely, and accelerate the success of forest restoration that has taken place in Arizona during the last ten years. Andy has lived in and fought for Arizona since he brought his family here over 30 years ago. He knows rural Arizona, and that is why I endorse Andy Tobin for Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”

“Supervisor Tenney is a powerhouse conservative advocate for Navajo County,” said Tobin. “Communities from Kayenta and Holbrook to Show Low have been positively impacted by our relentless fight to restore HURF money. We need to get the EPA off the backs of rural communities who power our state and provide our water. I sincerely thank Supervisor Tenney for his support. Having him on my team will go a long way in Navajo County.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Senator Jon Kyl Endorses Andy Tobin for Congress

“Andy Tobin is the battle-tested conservative that rural Arizona needs…”

Citing Tobin’s battle-tested track record of fighting for Arizona’s natural resources, economic development and integrity as a lawmaker, today Senator Jon Kyl endorsed Andy Tobin’s campaign for U.S. Congress. Kyl’s endorsement comes just three days after Republican Presidential Nominee and Governor Mitt Romney endorsed Tobin’s congressional campaign.

Andy Tobin is the battle-tested conservative that rural Arizona needs,” said Senator Jon Kyl. “In a time when strong, experienced, honest and straightforward candidates are hard to come by, Andy stands out. He has been successful in fighting for economic development opportunities, job creation and individual freedoms for Arizonans.”

Senator Kyl continues, “I’m confident Andy will be focused on the needs of Arizona, including our vital natural resources. He understands the relationship between good resource management and rural economic opportunity. Andy has been fighting to shield Arizona from the disastrous ObamaCare law since 2008, and he has fought to protect worker’s right to a secret ballot. He has proven to faithfully represent Arizona’s conservative values. Andy is a tireless worker and my choice for Congressional District One. I hope you will join me in doing all we can to send a fine Arizona conservative to Washington.”

“Senator Kyl and I go back a long way,” said Tobin. “His support for my campaign both energizes and humbles me. We both have a deep appreciation for how much work this type of undertaking requires. We have already logged thousands of miles traveling around the district and hundreds of hours on the phones seeking counsel from supporters, elected officials and grassroots activists. We’ve come a long way in Arizona. Now is the time that we must come together to send a proven conservative with a track record of advocating for Arizona to Washington. I believe that Senator Kyl’s endorsement goes a long way toward achieving our collective goal. I sincerely thank him for his support and confidence.”

Mohave County Supervisors Endorse Tobin

“Tobin is a proven conservative who understands Arizona and its complexities.”

 

Support for Andy Tobin’s congressional campaign shows explosive growth and momentum. Today, two Mohave County Supervisors endorse Tobin’s proven conservative record.

“As District One Supervisor for Mohave County for the past five years and Chairman for the Mohave County Board of Supervisors, I certainly value and realize the importance of a good working relationship with our U.S. Congressional Delegation and fully endorse Andy Tobin,” said Mohave County Board of Supervisors Chairman Gary Watson. “Tobin is a proven conservative who understands Arizona and its complexities. He will fight for his constituents by bringing solutions, not problems, to the table. Those of us in Arizona need an advocate like Andy Tobin. Please join me in standing with him today.”

 “As a rural legislator in Mohave County, I know that our residents care about healthcare, jobs and the economy,” said Mohave County Supervisor Hildy Angius. “Andy voted against ObamaCare and led the fight to pass the first Healthcare Freedom of Choice Act in the nation. He never wavered, even when the fight got messy. A small businessman himself, Andy is the only person in this race that has worked tirelessly to make rural Arizona a place for small businesses to grow and flourish by balancing Arizona’s budget and cutting taxes; giving taxpayers and job creators more money in their pockets. This is why I am endorsing Speaker Andy Tobin for U.S. Congress in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”

“I am thrilled to have the support of Mohave County Supervisor Angius and Chairman Watson,” said Tobin. They have placed their trust in me to fight for rural Arizona’s conservative values when I get to Washington. I will not let them down. I am honored to add their support to our network of grassroots leaders.”

Grand Canyon/Tusayan Mayor Endorses Andy Tobin

Andy Tobin

January 30, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Grand Canyon/Tusayan Mayor Endorses Andy Tobin

Mayor Greg Bryan praises Tobin for his action during Government Shutdown, canyon closure
Tusayan Mayor Greg Bryan found himself at the center of the Grand Canyon closure during the government shutdown. While the state of Arizona was losing money, the town of Tusayan was driven to the brink of collapse. After Andy Tobin traveled to Tusayan and helped to broker the state-funded reopening of the canyon, Mayors from all of the canyon communities have rallied behind Andy’s campaign for Congress. Mayor Bryan adds his name to the canyon community endorsements for Tobin, along with Williams Mayor John Moore and Page Mayor Bill Diak.

“After much thought and frustration at the lack of support for our community from Congresswoman Kirkpatrick, I have made the decision to back Andy Tobin‘s bid to become our next District 1 US Congressman,” said Tusayan Mayor Greg Bryan. “During the government shutdown and Kirkpatrick’s continuous votes to protect ObamaCare over reopening the Grand Canyon, the community of Tusayan was among the towns hardest hit economically. The state of Arizona lost out on innumerable revenue from the Canyon being closed, which should never have happened. But locally, the tourism-driven community of Tusayan was brought to its knees when the restaurants, hotels and other local businesses were severely impacted.”

“Andy made the trip to Tusayan to see the effects of the Canyon closure first-hand. He listened, empathized and vowed to do anything in his power to help Tusayan recover. He reached out to the Grand Canyon National Park Administration, he talked to the Governor and he helped to broker the deal to fund the Canyon’s reopening using state funds.”

“Tobin is an honest, hard-working legislator who cares more about seeing Arizona prosper than he does about his own career. I know that when we elect him to Congress he will represent us loyally and fight for Arizona’s needs over party politics. That is why I am endorsing Andy Tobin for United States Congress.”

“I know that Mayor Bryan’s endorsement was one he thought about very carefully,” said Tobin. “The government shutdown and the Grand Canyon closure affected his community deeply. When we met in Tusayan, Mayor Bryan expressed to me his town’s heartbreaking frustration over the federal government’s dysfunction and lack of leadership from Kirkpatrick in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District. I’m glad that I was able to positively impact the town of Tusayan during such a tough time. Mayor Bryan will always have my support and my gratitude for his sincere endorsement.”
