Americans for Prosperity Action Arizona Endorses U.S. Rep. David Schweikert for Re-Election

Phoenix, AZ — Americans for Prosperity Action Arizona today announced its endorsement of U.S. Rep. David Schweikert for re-election from Arizona’s 1stCongressional District.

Rep. Schweikert received the endorsement for his support of health care, spending, and tax policies that limit the federal government’s reach and expand opportunities for all Arizonans. 

“Rep. David Schweikert has supported health care policies that expand patient access and reduce costs,” said AFP Action Arizona’s Senior Advisor Stephen Shadegg.“He supported right-to-try legislation that allows patients with life-threatening illnesses to use innovative drugs and therapies that are still under review by the Federal Drug Administration. He also supported health savings accounts and the expansion of telehealth services that proved important during the Covid pandemic.

“Schweikert has also been a strong supporter of taxpayers by standing up to the irresponsible, big-spending schemes driving today’s skyrocketing inflation,” he said. “He also understands that the taxpayers can spend their hard-earned incomes better than government bureaucrats, and he will continue to be a strong advocate for lower taxes across the board.”

During the coming weeks, AFP Action staff and volunteers will work to educate voters in the 1st Congressional District about Schweikert’s efforts in Congress and to turn them out on Election Day.
