Tempe Mayoral Candidate Michael Monti Endorses Lisa Gray for Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party

Phoenix – Recent Tempe Mayoral candidate Michael Monti has announced his endorsement of Lisa Gray and her Arizona Party Builders team for Maricopa County Republican Party leadership.

"Republican candidates need all the support they can get from the Party,” said Monti, who narrowly lost his 2012 race against Democrat Mark Mitchell for Mayor of Tempe. "I don’t want to see us lose another winnable race like mine. I have chosen to endorse Lisa Gray and her Arizona Party Builders team because I believe that their diplomacy, experience and ability to unify the party behind candidates is exactly what our Party needs to stay relevant and help candidates win in all areas of the county – be they red, blue, or somewhere in-between.”

"I'm truly honored that my team has Michael Monti's support," said Gray. "If our Party is to be relevant, we must provide the kind of grassroots support that our candidates need to win races. This includes having a cohesive plan, trained and equipped PCs, and financial resources. We have provided these resources in our districts, and will bring them to Maricopa County when we are elected."
