Gover. Jan Brewer has endorsed Jonathan Paton for Congress in District 1.

"In the battle between Arizona and an overreaching federal government, Jonathan Paton is on our side. That is why I am proud to endorse him, why I am working hard to help him win," Brewer said.

Paton is running in Congressional District 1, which runs from Marana, north through eastern Arizona to Flagstaff and the Navajo Nation.

Brewer said Paton represents Arizona values.

"As a State Senator, Jonathan was a leader in the fight for smaller government, less regulation and lower taxes," Brewer said. "He provided a key vote in support of SB 1070, and he stands with Arizona in our fight for a safe and secure border. Like me, he is committed to a strong economy, quality job growth and better schools for our children."

Paton praised Brewer for initiating the Arizona Comeback.

"Gov. Brewer has overseen a dramatic turnaround in Arizona's economy," Paton said. "I'm proud to have her support as I campaign to overturn Obamacare, reduce federal regulation and improve economic opportunities in rural Arizona."
