Rural Arizona Deserves a Conservative Leader

(Lake Havasu City, AZ) Conservative State Senator Ron Gould announced his candidacy for Congress today after a brief exploratory committee.

“After talking to residents of Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District during my exploratory phase, one thing has become clear,” said Gould. “They want a strong conservative as their next Congressman who understands rural Arizona and the issues facing it.

“Unlike my announced opponents, I am a long time resident of CD 4 and I am proud to have spent the last 7 years representing Mohave, La Paz, and Coconino Counties in the Legislature.”

During his time in the Arizona State Senate, Gould has been recognized as the top Senator for all 7 years of his tenure by the Goldwater Institute, Arizona’s leading free-market conservative think-tank. Gould also has the highest lifetime score from the Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity of any State Senator currently serving.

“I have spent the last 7 years in the State Senate doing exactly what I promised to do when first elected,” continued Gould. “I have led the fight against higher taxes, I have stood firm against big government and higher spending even when doing so required me to oppose my own party, and I have consistently stood up and fought for the small businesses that provide the large majority of jobs in this district.

“This district wants a Congressman who is willing to stand up and do what’s right. Unlike some in this race, I won’t vote to increase the debt ceiling and I won’t seek out wasteful stimulus money that is nothing but an egregious waste of taxpayer dollars.”

Senator Ron Gould and his wife Janice live in Lake Havasu City Arizona. They are the parents of three grown children and the proud grandparents of two grandchildren.



  1. Headline should read “Chris Baker Writes Terrible News Release about an Important Client”

    Under that is should say “Amateur Photographer Persuades Baker to use Weird Shadowy Photo of Important Client”

    Ron Gould is an arse-kicking conservative, who happens to have poor judgement about some things.
