PHOENIX – Former Congressman Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., has endorsed Sam Crump in his campaign to represent Arizona’s Third Congressional District.

Tancredo is considered a leading conservative voice upholding the principles of Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater, and he compiled an impressive 99 rating from the American Conservative Union.
In his endorsement of Crump, Tancredo said “I heartily endorse Sam Crump for the U.S. Congress and urge every voter who cares about the issues of border security, national security, and fighting illegal immigration, to stand with Sam and cast your vote for him in the Republican Primary on August 24th.” Tancredo added “Sam has the experience and a proven track record of fighting for those ideals and the people who make our country great, and those qualities distinguish him from the rest of the field.”
Crump thanked Tancredo for his endorsement and commented, “It is an honor to gain the support of a true patriot like Tom Tancredo. He understands the dangers posed by illegal immigration and spoke on this matter long before most others had. I look forward to continuing to fight to secure our borders and defend our nation when I am elected to Congress.”
Sam Crump is a U.S. Army veteran and a founding partner in the law firm of Boates & Crump. He was the charter President of the Rotary Club of Anthem and founded an orphanage in Uganda.
