Former Arizona GOP Rep. Matt Salmon is backing Karrin Taylor Robson’s gubernatorial campaign, putting together an alliance between the two candidates against the Trump-backed Kari Lake.
Salmon, who dropped his bid on Tuesday, endorsed Taylor Robinson in a statement praising her as a “successful businesswoman and a conservative outsider who is well qualified to serve as chief executive.” He went on to call on his supporters to back her in pursuit of their “shared values.”
In response, Taylor Robson praised Salmon but took a swipe at Lake.
“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,” she said.
