August 18, 2016…Today, the Kiehne for Congress campaign announced the endorsement of the Greenlee County Republican Committee.
In their endorsement, the Greenlee County Republican Committee noted that Gary Kiehne is “the only candidate who consistently upholds the conservative platform of the Republican Party and the principles of the Greenlee County Republican voters.”
“I am honored to have the support of Greenlee County’s Republican Party,” said Kiehne. “Our campaign continues to gain momentum as we travel the district sharing our message of common sense, conservative solutions to our nation’s biggest problems. I look forward to working with Greenlee County Republicans toward victory on August 30th and in November.”
