Rep. Ruben Gallego Endorses Ann Kirkpatrick
Gallego says, “She fights for progressive policies”
(Tucson) – Today Ann Kirkpatrick’s campaign for Congress announced the endorsement of U.S. Representative Ruben Gallego. Gallego’s is the latest in a series of endorsements that include former Reps. Gabby Giffords and Ron Barber, Captain Mark Kelly, longtime Tucson prosecutor Barbara LaWall, Emily’s List, UFCW and End Citizens United.
“I served with Ann and have seen her hard work first-hand. She fights for progressive policies, like the DREAM Act, and I know Ann won’t back down in fighting for our DREAMers,” said Rep. Ruben Gallego. “Ann lost her seat in 2010 fighting to ensure that all Arizonans have decent health care. That took guts. It’s exactly the kind of leadership that Southern Arizona deserves. I am proud to endorse Ann Kirkpatrick for Congress.”
“I am so humbled by the outpouring of support for my campaign. I am especially grateful and honored by my friend Ruben Gallego’s endorsement,” said Ann Kirkpatrick. “Ruben fights every day in Washington for Arizona and I am running to join him once again in that fight.”
