Conservative Team America PAC Endorses Matt Salmon

September 14, 2011
From Team America PAC:
Team America PAC is endorsing Arizona's Matt Salmon in his bid for U.S. Congress. Team America PAC supports Matt's vision and Conservative credentials in creating a jobs-friendly environment allowing for growth, security and prosperity for Arizona.
Matt Salmon was first elected to the United States Congress in 1994 and served until 2000. A proud fiscal conservative, Salmon was rated in the top five among all 535 members of the House and Senate by Citizens Against Government Waste for all six years he was in office. He is a lifetime member of the NRA with an A+ rating and also earned a 100% rating by the National Right to Life. He was also the proud recipient of the American Cancer Society's "Top National Elected Official" award.
During his time in Congress, Salmon was named a "Watchdog of the Treasury" six consecutive years and earned the "Taxpayer Hero Award" from the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste. Salmon's record of supporting pro-business policies earned him the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for each of the six years he served. Salmon was also honored as a "Friend of Small Business" from the National Federation of Independent Business for six consecutive years.
Matt Salmon will lead the fight in Congress to address and solve the issue of illegal immigration. Salmon believes the federal government is failing to do the job of protecting our national borders and will advocate permitting the use of National Guard troops to secure our borders if necessary. Salmon will also partner with leaders from Arizona and other border states in fighting back against the federal government and their attempts to stop states from taking action to prevent illegal immigration. Salmon recognizes that America is a nation where immigrants want to live, and believes that immigration reform is needed to reward those who comply with our immigration policies and punish those who do not.
Matt Salmon has been married for 32 years to his best friend, Nancy. They are the proud parents of four children and the proud grandparents of four grandchildren.
Matt Salmon has also received endorsements from Arizona Congressman Trent Franks, former Arizona Congressman John Shadegg, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, South Dakota Senator John Thune, Commissioner Gary Pierce, former speaker Mark Killian, East Valley mayors Gail Barney (Queen Creek), Hugh Hallman (Tempe) and John Insalaco (Apache Junction), among others.
