(PHOENIX, AZ) – Conservative State Senator Steve Montenegro was endorsed today by the GOPAC Election Fund which will work to elect him as Arizona’s next Secretary of State.
In endorsing Montenegro, David Avella, Chairman of GOPAC, said, “Through his involvement with GOPAC, Steve Montenegro is known for championing ideas and pushing government to make the lives of Arizonans easier, safer, and better. This is why we are endorsing him to serve as Arizona’s Secretary of State. Our endorsement includes investing the maximum-allowable state contribution to his campaign. In addition, our members and supporters will be encouraged to donate directly.”
Montenegro responded to the endorsement by saying “I’m thrilled to have the support of GOPAC. Their endorsements have often been the early indication of what conservatives look for when choosing which races to pay attention to, and which candidates to support.”
Steve Montenegro is a principled conservative who has been regularly recognized as a Champion of the Taxpayer by Americans for Prosperity. Montenegro led the effort to pass the largest tax cuts in Arizona history and also played a key role in digging the state out of one of the worst deficits in the nation. He also has been a committed advocate for increasing transparency in government and sponsored legislation that allows Arizona taxpayers to see how their tax-dollars are spent.
While serving in the Arizona Legislature, Montenegro has earned top grades from pro-family, pro-life, pro-taxpayer, and pro-Constitution groups.
