PR: Paul Gosar Opens Fundraising Lead in CD-1

Paul Gosar for CongressFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 12, 2010


January 12, 2010. Flagstaff, AZ. Small businessman, Dr. Paul Gosar’s bid to unseat Ann Kirkpatrick in Arizona’s Congressional District 1 is picking up support faster than the incumbent walking out on constituents at a Holbrook Town Hall meeting last year.

As of December 31, 2009, Gosar’s fundraising total reached more than $203,000. That places him far ahead of a GOP lawyer and lobbyist competing against him.

“The holiday season may be over but I am still very grateful for many things and to see this much support from donors is very humbling,” Gosar said. “When I decided to run, I knew that we need more representation from everyday people and a lot less of the lawyers, lobbyists and career politicians. When you sign both ends of a paycheck, you have a greater respect for how this economy ISN’T working from the employer and employee viewpoints. Add in my background in health care and my understanding of what we could have had in health care reform and DIDN”T, you can completely see how the everyday American feels when you’re constantly getting the short end of the stick”.

With this great support, we are now in a position to have a common sense, everyday employer be the Republican standard bearer versus a Nancy Pelosi supporter who is too afraid to directly talk with her constituents and represent them” Gosar said.

The 51-year old husband, 24+ year resident of Flagstaff, father of three, sports and hunting enthusiast has been traveling all over Congressional District One for the past several months and has enjoyed meeting with supporters who share his belief: that his background, his story, his experience in the numerous aspects Arizona’s Congressional District’s way of life, make him the GOP favorite to unseat Kirkpatrick.

Gosar has been endorsed by the American Dental Political Action Committee, Pinal County Supervisor Bryan Martyn and NRA past President Bob Corbin to name a few. He is an Arizona’s former “Dentist of the Year”, who practices general dentistry in Flagstaff, where he has resided for over 24 years.
