CD8: Gov. Brewer Done Has Did Endorsed Jesse Kelly

Posted By on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 at 2:43 PM

Gov. Jan Brewer is taking advantage of her week in the national spotlight to endorse Republican Jesse Kelly, who hopes to unseat Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Congressional District 8.

In a press release, Brewer said: “There is no question that Jesse Kelly is the best candidate—a dynamic leader with business and military experience who will stand up to President Obama and fight for Arizonans in Washington.”

One thing that Kelly is not likely to do: Support any more federal bailouts of the state that have kept Brewer from making deeper cuts to state programs. Here's a look at what stimulus has done for the state, if you're inclined to give it a glance.

Mitt Romney—who first brought you a version of ObamaCare in Massachusetts—also endorsed Kelly this week. Romney's statement: “I am particularly impressed with his practical conservative solutions to get Americans back to work. It is time to send businesspeople with experience in creating private sector jobs and balancing budgets to Washington.”

We should note that most of Don Kelly Construction's private jobs are funded with public dollars.
