Sen. Cruz Endorses Biggs in Race to Replace Rep. Salmon

Sen. Ted Cruz on Friday endorsed state Senate President Andy Biggs to succeed retiring Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.).

“We know we can count on Andy because he has a proven record of defending our conservative principles, and he has demonstrated the courage to fight for what’s right, even when it is unpopular with the liberal media,” the Texas Republican said in a statement. “If you’re serious about completely and utterly destroying ISIS, cutting out-of-control waste in government, and finally securing our border, we need Andy Biggs in Congress. I hope all Arizonans will join me in supporting him today and on Election Day!”

Salmon, a member of the Freedom Caucus, endorsed Biggs to be his successor.
