Former congressman and candidate for Arizona's 5th Congressional District, which includes Ahwatukee Foothills, Matt Salmon, has announced that Congressman David Schweikert, R-Ariz., has endorsed him.

Schweikert, known as one of the Republican Party's rising conservatives, endorsed Salmon in a video message in which he said: "Our nation is facing so many challenges and we need our most experienced and principled leaders in Congress to help get America back on the right track. I chose to endorse Matt Salmon for Arizona's East Valley congressional seat because Matt has been a trusted conservative leader as a state senator and congressman before, and I know he'll be that same trusted leader when he returns to Washington. I'm proud to join his growing team of supporters."
