Conservative State Senator Pamela Gorman Announces for Congress
Anthem, AZ – State Senator Pamela Gorman announced today that she is running for Congress in Arizona’s 3rd Congressional District. Gorman, recognized as one of the most conservative members of the Arizona Legislature, promised to continue her strong and consistent advocacy for conservative principles.
“A day doesn’t go by where people don’t contact me to express their growing frustration with what’s going on in our nation’s capitol,” said Gorman.
“Nationalized healthcare, corporate bailouts, out of control deficits, cap and trade; the list of irresponsible policies coming out of Washington continues to grow with each passing day.
“If the last year has convinced me of anything, it’s that the politicians in Washington are out of control. They are steering our country down a road that threatens not only our prosperity but the future prosperity of our children and grandchildren in ways that many of us could never have imagined. It has to stop,” continued Gorman.
“Over the last few days, I have been humbled and flattered by the strong support I have received from family, friends, and supporters encouraging me to run for Congress. Their support along with the reality that committed conservative leadership is needed more than ever in Washington makes this an easy decision,” said Gorman.
First elected in 2004 to the Arizona House of Representatives and to the Arizona State Senate two years later, Pamela Gorman has consistently been recognized as one of the most conservative members of the Arizona Legislature. Last year, Gorman was one of the leaders of the effort to stop a sales tax increase.
“This will be a long and tough campaign, but one I look forward to,” concluded Gorman. “If elected, my promise to the voters of AZ-03 is simple. I will go to Congress and stand up and fight for the conservative principles we share, just as hard as I have done in the Arizona Legislature.”
