Navajo Nation VP Lizer Announces Candidacy in Newly Redrawn AZ 2nd Congressional District

WINDOW ROCK, AZ – Vice President Myron Lizer of the Navajo Nation has announced the creation of his committee seeking the Republican nomination of the newly redrawn Arizona 2nd Congressional District seat. The newly redrawn District encompasses current Representative Tom O’Halleran District and part of the 1st Congressional District held by retiring Representative Ann Kirkpatrick. According to the Associated Press, this redrawn district tilts strongly toward Republican voting patterns from the previous nine elections.

“The United States of America has strength, dreams, creativity and opportunities,” said Lizer. “As the world carries forward into an unknown future, there are many tasks that are required to be accomplished, especially in the Federal Government. The project-killing bureaucracy, lack of financial investment, huge government spending and broken promises by the Federal Government has limited the interest of ‘We the People.’ This includes the First Nations of America, as Federal Government’s responsibility is to govern the public, not to dictate the citizens.”
