Former Congressman and candidate for Arizona's 6th Congressional District, Matt Salmon, announced that his campaign has received the endorsements from all three state legislators in Legislative District 20: State Sen. John McComish (R-LD 20); State Rep. Bob Robson (R-LD 20); and State Rep. Jeff Dial (R-LD 20).
McComish said, "As a longtime business leader in Arizona, I can speak with certainty that Matt Salmon has the right vision and experience to advance pro-business legislation in Congress that will get our employers hiring once again.
"Matt understands that growing our local economy and putting more Arizonans back to work begins by enacting federal policies that cut taxes and reduce burdensome regulation on businesses. I'm proud to join Matt Salmon's team."
Robson added, "I have been a longtime supporter of Matt Salmon and I know firsthand that his record is tested and proven to the core.
"Now more than ever, we need leaders in Washington who have the experience and courage to hit the ground running and make the tough decisions that are necessary."
Dial said, "Congress has a spending problem and we need someone in Washington to hold them accountable. Matt Salmon is the right person for the job.
"Matt has experience on cutting our government's wasteful spending, slashing our budget deficits and restoring balanced federal budgets. I'm excited for his return to Congress."
