Citizens United Endorses Jesse Kelly in Special Election

Posted By on Wed, Feb 8, 2012 at 4:30 PM

Republican Jesse Kelly picks up the key endorsement—and $10,000—from Citizens United in the special election to complete the term of Gabrielle Giffords, who resigned from Congress on Jan. 25.

The release from Citizens United:


Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, issued the following statement endorsing combat veteran Jesse Kelly for the special election in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District. CUPVF has also contributed $10,000 total — $5,000 respectively for Kelly’s primary and general elections.

“Citizens United Political Victory Fund was an early supporter for Jesse Kelly in 2010, and it is an honor to be one of his first supporters in this race.” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Jesse Kelly has shown that he can run a very strong campaign in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District. Jesse is a Marine Corps veteran and true hero of the conservative movement. I urge all Republican primary voters in Arizona’s 8th District to rally around Jesse Kelly because he will work hard for lower taxes, a strong economy, and more jobs when he is in Congress.”

Kelly is facing state Sen. Frank Antenori, business/sports broadcaster Dave Sitton and John Lervold in the April 17 GOP primary. A fifth Republican, Martha McSally, is expected to join the race tomorrow.
