SAFFORD – On Monday, former Safford City Councilman and candidate for U.S. House of Representatives AZ-01 Chris Taylor announced his endorsement for Nolan Redhead.
Taylor suspended his campaign after suffering a substance abuse relapse and was briefly hospitalized. Soon after, he also resigned from his position on the volunteer Safford Fire Department and from the Safford City Council, a position he was initially elected to with the highest vote tally of any of those running.
Taylor posted this endorsement on social media:
“I am proud to announce my full support and endorsement for Nolan Reidhead in the Republican Primary for Arizona’s 1st Congressional District on Aug. 4, 2020.
Nolan is a successful and accomplished attorney, a man of great faith, and someone who truly cares about our great nation and the citizens of Arizona. Nolan is an honorable person worthy of our support. I’ve found him to be decent, respectful and caring. I believe his intentions are pure and his decision to run for Congress is completely selfless. He’s a humble man with a sincere desire to make our nation and state a better place for the rising generation.
This map shows the area of Arizona covered by AZ-01.
Nolan will fight to protect America’s divinely inspired constitution, most importantly he will defend religious freedom, freedom of speech and our God-given right to keep and bear arms so that we can always defend ourselves and our families in these days of increasing turmoil and chaos.
I also believe that Nolan has the best chance of any Republican still in the race, to win a General Election in this district. His hard work, dedication, and message of smaller government, less taxes, more freedom, stronger families, and more prosperous communities will carry him to victory come November 2020. Please join me in fully supporting conservative Republican Nolan Reidhead for Congress.
