Matt Salmon endorses Karrin Taylor Robson for Governor, puts “full weight of my support behind her candidacy”

June 29, 2022

Today, the Karrin for Arizona campaign is pleased and humbled to accept the endorsement of Matt Salmon. On Tuesday, the former Arizona Congressman and co-founder of the conservative Freedom Caucus announced he was withdrawing from the gubernatorial campaign.

“Karrin is a successful businesswoman and a conservative outsider who is well qualified to serve as chief executive of the state we love,” Salmon said. “With her decades of service in Arizona, I am confident that she knows what it takes to stand up for families, protect taxpayers, secure the border, and push back against the Biden Administration. I look forward to putting the full weight of my support behind her candidacy.
“To the Arizonans who supported my campaign: We may not have won this Republican primary, but our shared values can still emerge victorious if we stand behind a candidate with the temperament and experience to govern Arizona. Karrin Taylor Robson is that candidate.”

Taylor Robson thanked Salmon and said she was humbled by his support.

“Matt Salmon has a long, admirable record of public service and conservative leadership. Like me, Matt is a doer – not just a talker. Kari Lake may have discovered God, Guns and the GOP just in time for her political campaign, but Matt and I have been fighting for decades for the conservative issues that matter: limited government; economic freedom; school choice; border security; and more. In the days and weeks ahead, I look forward to continuing that work with Matt Salmon at my side as we fight to keep Arizona leadership in conservative, steady hands.”
