“We are ecstatic about Mr. Leibsohn’s commitment to the taxpayers of Arizona.” – Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform

Piece by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) published by Adam Radman on Friday, February 9, 2018.

Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) congratulates congressional candidate Seth Leibsohn for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which is a written commitment to the people of Arizona to oppose higher taxes.

Radio show host and political activist Leibsohn is the first Republican candidate to sign the “no new taxes” Pledge in the race. ATR strongly encourages all candidates to make the same commitment to taxpayers.

“The American people are tired of the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington and they are looking for solutions that create jobs, cut government spending, and grow the economy. Signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and holding the line on taxes is the first step in that process,” said Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform.

Candidates running for public office like to say they will not raise taxes, but often turn their backs on the taxpayer once elected. The Taxpayer Protection Pledge requires these candidates to put their rhetoric in writing. It is offered to every candidate for state and federal office and to all incumbents. Nearly 1,400 elected officials have signed the Pledge.

“We are ecstatic about Mr. Leibsohn’s commitment to the taxpayers of Arizona. I challenge all candidates for Arizona’s 9th Congressional District to make the same commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” continued Norquist.

Former US Secretary of Education Bill Bennett endorses Seth Leibsohn for Arizona’s 9th Congressional District.

It is both an honor and pleasure to endorse Seth Leibsohn for Congress in CD-9/Arizona. I have known Seth for nearly 20 years. He has been a loyal Chief of Staff, colleague, and co-author in both books and op-eds, and a key part of my national radio show.”

“A trusted friend and advisor, he is a strong and thoughtful conservative who knows how to speak to various audiences and explain our world-view. I can think of no better person to serve the state of Arizona or America than Seth and am delighted to not only endorse him but work as hard as I can for his successful candidacy.”

“I couldn’t be more fortunate to have learned from and worked with such an influential and intelligent voice in commonsense conservatism.” Seth Leibsohn said. “I am humbled and deeply appreciative of my dear friend Bill Bennett’s support for our congressional campaign.”

Along with Dr. Bennett’s endorsement, Seth has also been endorsed by Rick Santorum, Dennis Prager, the PowerLine Blog, and in the pages of National Review.

Republican candidate for Arizona’s Congressional District 9 Seth Leibsohn received the endorsement of Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.

Rick Santorum, founder of Patriot Voices, a 501(c)3 non-profit released the following statement on January 6, 2018:

Rick Santorum and Patriot Voices PAC are pleased to endorse Seth Leibsohn for Arizona Congressional District 9, which is an open seat. Seth is a long-time friend and former staff member. You can get to know him from his books or his career in radio or his work in substance abuse prevention or in the think tank community. We urge you to check out more of his biography at his website:

“I first met Seth when he was working with Bill Bennett, Jack Kemp, and Jeane Kirkpatrick at their think tank, Empower America,” said Rick Santorum. “We later worked together when I was the guest host of Bill Bennett’s radio show and I hired him to be my policy director for my run for President in 2012. I know Seth to not only be a highly articulate and intelligent conservative but delight in the idea he could now help flip a Democratic seat in Arizona to a Republican seat.”

As Dennis Prager recently put it on his radio show,“Seth is the kind of conservative that has great appeal in a district that is not exactly liberal and not exactly conservative.” A man of great principle and conviction, who knows how to communicate our message and whose passions are our country and its children, we heartily endorse Seth and ask you to help his candidacy out any way you can.
