August 19, 2016…Today, the Kiehne for Congress campaign announced the endorsement of Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller.
“I am pleased to announce my endorsement of Mr. Gary Kiehne in the Congressional District 1 primary,” said Miller. “I support Gary because he is a businessman… not another politician. We need more people from the private sector to step up and do the job politicians have failed to do! If you want change in Washington D.C., I strongly encourage you to vote for Gary Kiehne. Gary is both fiscally and socially conservative and is the ONLY candidate who can win the election in November.”
Ally is known for being a staunch advocate of the taxpayer. She exposed and stopped Pima County spending practices that were in violation of the state constitution. In addition, she championed and held the first ever budget review session for Pima County and moved to allow citizens the right to speak at the beginning of board meetings. Ally has worked tirelessly for the citizens in the southern parts of CD-1 as a true conservative.
“I am thrilled to have the support of such a strong leader in our community,” said Kiehne in response to this endorsement. “Republicans in CD1 continue to unite behind our campaign to bring conservative, common sense solutions to Washington D.C. As your next U.S. Congressman I will fight every day to make government work for Arizonans again.”
In November, Kiehne 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. Kiehne has been endorsed by dozens of local leaders and influencers in Arizona’s First Congressional District, along with several local organizations, publications, Arizona’s Speaker of the House David Gowan, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
