July 29, 2016…Today, the Gary Kiehne for Congress campaign announced the endorsements of several local law enforcement officials from Arizona’s First Congressional District.

These leaders join a long list of endorsements for Gary Kiehne from across the entirety of AZ-01.  The entire list of Kiehne’s endorsements can be found here.


“It’s an honor to have the support of these tremendous local law enforcement officials in our race for Arizona’s First Congressional District.  We must stand and unite behind our law enforcement.  These are the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to protect us every day, and if elected to serve as the next Congressman from our First Congressional District, I will always stand in defense of our law enforcement and support law and order.”

Gary Kiehne is anything but a politician.  He’s never held elected office and is running to bring his successes in small business to fight for us.  Kiehne believes it’s time for true change, because the establishment on both sides of the aisle, driven by career politicians, is simply not getting the job done.

Kiehne has spent his life in the private sector, creating jobs and growing his small businesses in the oil, ranching, construction, real estate and hotel industries.  He knows what it will take to restore fiscal prosperity to rural Arizona, and that starts by reining in Washington’s culture of spending, fixing the tax code and shrinking the size of a federal government that is too big.

In November, Gary was named to the first round of “On the Radar” candidates by the National Republican Congressional Committee, a national display of momentum for his candidacy.

Born in Springerville, Apache County, Gary Kiehne is an Arizona cattleman and small business owner. He owns three hotels in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District and works in the oil and gas industry. Gary and his wife Julie have three children, Mendy, Holly and Chance, and four young grandchildren. A roper, Gary is a member of the United States Team Roping Association and the World Series of Team Roping. An avid outdoorsman, Gary is a lifelong member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and belongs to the National Rifle Association.
