Former Congressman John Shadegg Endorses Matt Salmon

EAST VALLEY – Former Congressman Matt Salmon announced today that Former Congressman John Shadegg has endorsed his bid for Congress. Shadegg was elected to Congress in 1994 alongside Salmon as part of the "Republican Revolution." He is a long-time fiscal conservative who has fought for lower taxes and against government waste. Shadegg was also a leading advocate in Congress and in the National Conservative Movement for limited government.
Shadegg said, "I worked with Matt Salmon for many years in Congress. He recognizes that growth of government constricts this nation's fundamental value of individual liberty. He is a solid conservative and I know he will fight to reduce government spending, bring federal tax relief to hardworking Americans, and re-establish state and individual rights. Courage is a rare thing in Washington and Matt Salmon has proven time and again he has it. He has proven that he will work to change Washington without Washington changing him. I support Matt because we need someone who knows his way around and won't be intimidated by the old bulls and the power elite. You won't need to bet on Matt because of his rhetoric you can count on him because of his actions."
"I am truly thrilled to receive the support of Congressman Shadegg," said Salmon. "He is a great statesman and was truly a model for fiscal responsibility while he served in Congress. I cherished the time I was able to serve with him and pledge to continue his commitment fiscal conservatism, lower taxes and limited government."
