Munger announces endorsement by Symington
Phoenix, AZ, Former Governor Fife Symington ended speculation about a 2010 run for governor when he endorsed Tucson businessman, John Munger. During a campaign event at the University Club in Phoenix Thursday evening, Symington told supporters that Munger is the right person to lead the state.
“John’s a leader. As a successful businessman, he brings an outsider’s perspective to the state’s top office. The next governor has to lead this state during difficult economic times. John Munger’s approach is the right approach. Lighten the load on businesses and families. Cut taxes. Reshape and reform government. It’s clear to me this is what the state needs and it’s clear to me that John’s the guy.”
Munger announced the formation of his gubernatorial committee last Friday in Phoenix and spent this week crisscrossing Arizona and meeting with voters to announce his candidacy.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of former Governor Fife Symington. Everywhere I go, people tell me that Fife was truly the best the governor in Arizona history. He cut taxes, cut regulations, and ushered in a period of very strong economic growth. No matter what party you’re in, those facts are indisputable. His advice and counsel will be invaluable to me and my campaign,” said Munger.
