Gosar Announces Re-Election Plans
PHOENIX, ARIZONA – U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ-04), formally announced he will be seeking election to his third term in Congress.
At the Arizona GOP Convention in Phoenix, Gosar told supporters, “It has been a honor to serve the people of Arizona for the last 3 years. I have accomplished much to fix the trajectory of our nation and it’s reckless spending but there is still much work to do. I have more to contribute to the people. I am still full of hope, full of energy and ready to continue the fight for a balanced budget, adherence to our Constitution, and smaller government. This is why I am announcing today that I am running for reelection.”
Gosar was first elected in 2010 after trouncing incumbent democrat Ann Kirkpatrick. His first term was noted for its heavy legislative accomplishments and district case work. After the redistricting commission carved up his district almost in half, he ran in 2012 and resoundingly prevailed over a well funded campaign financed by Wall Street outsiders for State Senator Ron Gould.
Congressman Gosar serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee with Rep. Darryl Issa. He also serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and focuses on energy and natural resource development.
Gosar further noted, “When the people sent me to D.C. I made 4 simple promises. These promises remain my guiding principles. First, I will follow the U.S. Constitution. I will not support legislation that does not comply with the Constitution. Second, I will not raise taxes. The American public is overtaxed as it is. Third, I will work towards a balanced budget. I remain on record as the only Arizona conservative that voted for and supported the Budget Control Act–before it was cool to do so. Fourth, I will remain accessible and accountable to the people.”
Gosar continues to remain accessible with frequent townhalls and community appearances. His office is open and he is always willing to discuss solutions.
“I have prided myself on not doing what is easiest but instead doing what is right. There should be no Blue America. There should be no Red America. There should be just our great nation, under God, indivisible,” Gosar concluded.
