Salmon for Congress
Phoenix, AZ - Tonight, Congressman Matt Salmon issued the following statement upon his reelection to represent the people of Arizona's Fifth District:
"I am truly humbled by the trust and faith the voters of the Fifth District have placed in me once again.
"Running for public office is not easy, and I applaud my Democrat opponent, James Woods, for having the courage to do so.
"Tonight's election results make one thing exceedingly clear: Arizonans want their elected officials to get government out of the way and support policies that will let the private sector thrive and create jobs.
"With word already coming in that Republicans have once again taken control of the Senate, the days of Harry Reid obstructing the will of the American people and abusing his position to shield the President from making hard decisions are over. No more will the American people be silenced by an entrenched political insider from Searchlight who has made his home in the halls of Congress for the past 31 years.
"It is an honor to serve my constituents in Washington, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to send the President legislation that will truly reign in government, enable job creation, and raise the standard of living for all Arizonans and all Americans."
