August 17, 2016…Today the Kiehne for Congress campaign was honored to announce Kiehne has been endorsed by the Nahata Dziil Commission Governance of the Navajo Nation.
The Nahata Dziil joins the St. Michaels Chapter House in endorsing Gary Kiehne in the race for Arizona’s First Congressional District.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the Nahata Dziil chapter,” said Kiehne. “I have for years enjoyed a great relationship with Arizona’s Navajo community, and I am thrilled to have the full endorsement of yet another chapter of the Navajo Nation here in our District. I have wonderful memories of growing up roping on the reservation, and I look forward to continuing to build relationships with those in the
Navajo community, as well as every other community in our region.”
