Andy Tobin Endorses Sheriff Paul Babeu for Congress
Casa Grande, AZ – Former Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin, the 2014 GOP nominee for Congressional District 1 and now an Arizona Corporation Commission member, endorsed Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu for the open House seat.
“Paul Babeu’s strong law enforcement record and military service is what Arizona needs when fighting for Arizona’s interests in DC.,” Tobin said. “Federal overreach and President Obama’s utter failure to enforce immigration law or secure the border serve as glaring examples of what we need fixed.”
Tobin, the former House speaker, narrowly lost his 2014 race during a hard-fought contest. However, he continued his public service in the Ducey Administration and now after his appointment to the Corporation Commission, where he specializes in representing rural Arizona.
“Paul Babeu offers republicans a clear opportunity to win back this seat away from Democrats who support job-killing regulations like Obamacare and the Clean Power Plan,” Tobin said. “I encourage CD1 voters to send a message that Obamacare doesn’t work for Arizona by electing Paul Babeu to repeal this disastrous policy.”
Babeu, the two-term Pinal County sheriff, praised Tobin’s commitment to Arizona residents and thanked him for the support.
“Andy Tobin’s decade long service to Arizona is a testament to his character and his love for the people of this great state,” Babeu said. “I thank him for that service and his support during this important election.”
