Salmon for Congress

EAST VALLEY - Matt Salmon, former Congressman and Republican nominee for Arizona's 5th congressional district, today received the endorsement from the American Nurses Association (ANA), a widely respected leader for health care and nursing issues.

ANA released the following statement: "Having served in Congress from 1995-2001, and keeping his promise to step down because of a term-limit pledge, Matt Salmon knows Washington needs problem solvers like him. Salmon wants to return to Congress to fight for common sense solutions for our health care problems. In Congress, we believe that Salmon will continue to keep his promises and fight for nursing issues."

"I am honored to have earned the endorsement of the American Nurses Association," stated former Congressman Salmon. "I know the issues that the nursing community faces on a daily basis as my daughter, Katie, is a registered nurse. I am looking forward to working with ANA and advancing policies in Congress that improve the health care industry for nurses and patients alike."
