Congressman Raúl Grijalva Endorses David Schapira

Written by  Randy Keating

Congressman Raúl Grijalva, AZ-07, today announced his endorsement of Arizona Senate Democratic Leader David Schapira, D-Tempe, in his campaign for Arizona’s Ninth Congressional District. “Voters are looking for candidates who stand up for what they believe in and can win, not by hiding their values, but by sharing them with voters. David is that candidate,” said Rep. Grijalva.

“In the Arizona Legislature, David has been a leader in fighting for jobs and the middle class, protecting the environment and stopping terrible bills. Arizona will be well-served by having David in Congress.”

“I am honored to have the support of Congressman Grijalva,” said Sen. Schapira. “He continues to be a tireless advocate for workers, schools and the environment. I hope to work alongside Congressman Grijalva in getting our economy back on track.”

Rep. Grijalva is in his fifth term as a Member of Congress. Before being elected to Congress in 2002, he served on the Tucson Unified School District board from 1974 to 1986. He was elected to the Pima County Board of Supervisors in 1989, where he served until running for Congress in 2002. Rep. Grijalva co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus with Rep. Keith Ellison, MN-05.
