Sarah Palin Endorses Kirk Adams for Congress


Chad Heywood

PHOENIX, ARIZONA – Today, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin endorsed Kirk Adams, candidate for the 5th Congressional District in Arizona. Adams is the third U.S. House candidate to be endorsed by the Governor this cycle.

Adams requested the endorsement and shared his beliefs, policy positions, and passion for the citizens of Arizona with Governor Palin.

Governor Palin said:

"If you believe strongly in the need to repeal Obamacare, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Kirk Adams for Congress in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District. Kirk is determined to repeal this mother of all unfunded mandates. And when he gets to Washington he won’t just “join the fight” to repeal Obamacare, he’ll help lead it.

As one of the youngest Speakers in the history of the Arizona House of Representatives, Kirk led the fight for less government spending, lower taxes, individual freedom, and limited government. As a small businessman, he knows firsthand that entrepreneurship and small businesses (which many of us built ourselves, Mr. President) are the job creating engine of our economy. Kirk is a proven advocate of removing the crushing burdens of excessive government regulation on our small businesses, and in Congress he will fight to put government back on our side and not in our way.

Kirk has been a steadfast supporter of sound immigration laws and was a leading defender of Arizona citizens as he used his platform to accurately describe this state's predicament to the rest of America. He was the one who helped us all understand how dangerously misguided President Obama is on state's rights and the rule of law! When President Obama called Arizona's law "misguided" and then far removed politicians urged a "boycott" of Arizona, Kirk boldly stood up for his state! He became a loud and proud voice against the unsuccessful boycotts as he passionately wrote here:

His tireless efforts worked.

Please join me in supporting Kirk Adams for Congress today."

In response to the endorsement, Adams said, "I am extremely grateful to receive the endorsement of Governor Palin. I sought her support because I believe that she embodies the Washington outsider breaking down the doors of the power elite. Sarah Palin stood up and made a difference in her community and state, because she realized she represented so many common sense Americans who were not being represented.

As I encounter the arrogance of the Washington elite in this race, I appreciate more than ever, people like Governor Palin who stand up for what they believe in despite being underestimated and ridiculed. I am proud to receive the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin."


About Kirk Adams

Kirk Adams is a husband, father, and small business owner. He is a partner at the Adams Agency, which has been ranked the #1 insurance agency by Ranking Arizona. Adams is a life long resident of the East Valley. After joining the state House in 2006, he became so frustrated by the unwillingness and inability of Republicans in the Legislature to stand up for their conservative principles that he launched a long-shot campaign to oust the veteran Speaker of the House. Adams shocked the Republican establishment and political class, winning the Speakership at only 35 years of age. Adams turned the tide in the House and put Arizona back on the path to fiscal responsibility with an aggressive agenda of reform, courageously taking on some of the most challenging issues in Arizona.

Kirk Adams' campaign is endorsed by Vice President Dan Quayle, U.S. Senator Jon Kyl, U.S. Senator John McCain, U.S. Congressman Ben Quayle, Gilbert Mayor John Lewis, Former Queen Creek Mayor Art Sanders, Former Chandler Mayor Jerry Brooks, Arizona Senator Steve Yarbrough, Arizona Senator Rich Crandall, Former Senate President Stan Turley, the Honorable Tom Freestone, Arizona Speaker Pro Tempore Stephen Montenegro, Arizona Majority Leader Steve Court, Arizona Representative Javan "J.D."
