Phoenix, Arizona. July 19, 2010. The Patriot Caucus, a project of LibertyFirst PAC has announced the full endorsement of David Schweikert in the primary to defeat incumbent and liberal Democrat Congressman Harry Mitchell in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District. The caucus is a conservative-minded political action committee of tea party organizers, activists and bloggers dedicated to the ideals of the tea party movement (including lower taxes, limited government, strong national defense, strong positions on illegal immigration, energy independence and family values).
“David Schweikert has a proven history as a leader in the state legislature and as County Treasurer; and he is strong believer in securing our border against illegal immigration and that cutting taxes is fundamental in growing the economy. His long service to Arizona is hard to come by and his vast experience in both the private and public sectors proves that he is without a doubt the most qualified and capable candidate to beat incumbent Democrat Harry Mitchell,” said Keith Sipmann, Chair of the PAC. “David Schweikert has been endorsed in the past by the National Border Patrol Council, Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, Arizona Right to Life and he has received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association with an “A” rating for his solid support of Second Amendment rights. And now we are proud to join the various groups and organizations that stand behind David and his campaign.” Supporting the right candidate in this years election could mean significant real life changes to many Arizona voters. We recognized that fact and want to help direct some of the focus into a carefully chosen slate of races that we believe we can have a significant impact in.
