CASA GRANDE — Congressional candidate Tiffany Shedd continues to add to her list of Republican endorsements.
U.S. House of Representatives Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., announced his endorsement on Thursday.
“Tiffany Shedd grew up in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District, raised her family in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District and understands the challenges facing the district,” McCarthy said in a press release. “Tiffany will be a fierce and effective advocate for Arizonans as a member of Congress, and that’s why I’m proud to endorse this attorney, farmer, mom and great candidate in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.”
Shedd was also added to the list of “rising star” candidates for E-PAC. E-PAC — Engage, Empower, Elevate — is a political action committee that supports Republican women candidates who are running for office.
“@Tiffany_Shedd in #AZ01 is a 4th generation farmer and attorney who will work with President Trump to secure our border. She is also a 4-H certified pistol and shotgun coach! She will never waver in protecting our 2A,” E-PAC founder and New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik tweeted.
Shedd is also endorsed by former U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl from Arizona, current Arizona Congresswoman Debbie Lesko, R-Peoria, past Arizona Senate President Steve Pierce, R-Prescott, and state Reps. Tim Dunn, R-Yuma, and T.J. Shope, R-Coolidge.
Shedd is running against Chris Taylor from Safford and Nolan Reidhead from Tucson for the Republican nomination. The winner of the Republican primary will run against one of two Democratic candidates, either incumbent Tom O’Halleran from Sedona or Eva Putzova of Flagstaff.
