Phoenix, AZ – Today, former congressional candidate and Phoenix attorney Bob Lord has announced his support for Kyrsten Sinema in her race for Congress. Lord was the Democrats’ 2008 nominee for Arizona’s 3rd Congressional District, a district that is now a part of the new 9th Congressional District. Prior to his congressional run, Bob took leadership in municipal advisory commissions and civic organizations such as the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Phoenix and Valley Citizen’s League. He also serves on the National Advisory Board of J Street.
“Washington is no longer working for Arizona’s families,” said Lord. “Kyrsten has proven time and again that she has the unique blend of the pragmatism needed to get things done and the political courage to defend our principles. She’s a true leader who will be the fresh voice we need in order to change Congress.”
“Bob’s leadership and vision for our state shows an Arizona whose best days are still ahead,” said Sinema. “I’m running for Congress because I support that vision and will take on the Washington insiders who have turned their back on our home state.”
