Obama endorses Rep. Raul Grijalva for Congress
Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva announced his endorsement by President Barack Obama in Grijalva’s bid for reelection. President Obama released the following statement: “Congressman Raul Grijalva is and always has been a strong ally for working families in Southern Arizona. From day one, he has been a tireless champion for good-paying jobs, education, and health care for his constituents. That is why we need his dedication and vision back in Congress to continue the fight with me to provide every family an opportunity to reach the middle class. I need you to cast your vote for Congressman Grijalva in this August’s primary.” “Republicans want to continue doubling down on the failed economic policies of the past. We can’t afford to turn back the clock, and that’s why we need a pro-jobs champion like Congressman Raul Grijalva back in office to keep moving Arizona forward.” Congressman Grijalva is running for reelection in Arizona’s newly drawn 3rd Congressional District. “I am humbled and honored to have the President’s endorsement,” Grijalva said.
