FRC Action PAC Announces Endorsement of State Sen. Kimberly Yee for Arizona State Treasurer

Washington, D.C. -- FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Kimberly Yee for Arizona State Treasurer.

FRC Action PAC Executive Vice President, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) U.S. Army William G. Boykin commented:

“As an Arizona native, Sen. Yee represented the 20th legislative district in the Arizona Legislature since 2010. Her impeccable political credentials include her current service as the Senate Majority Leader – the second woman to ever serve in that position since U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor in 1973. She is also the first Asian American woman elected to serve in the Arizona Legislature in the state's history. As a trailblazer who hasn’t kowtowed to political correctness or the whims of one political party, she has a proven record of putting people above policy. We are excited to see her do the same in the Arizona Treasurer’s office.

“Sen. Yee’s sponsorship of Arizona’s heart beat bill was instrumental in leading to a drop of 1,400 fewer abortions in her state in 2017. In addition, she supported religious liberty with her votes in favor of Arizona’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (SB 1062), and its Rights of Conscience bill (SB 1365). As a wife, mother, and small business owner, her record is one of hard work, faith, and family. These values will serve her well as her state’s treasurer.

“In addition to her service as Senate Majority Leader, she has also served on both the committee on Finance, Judiciary and Elections, and the Joint Legislative Income Tax Credit Review Committee. Her prior work in the state treasurer’s office under State Treasurer Dean Martin, gives us confidence that she will promote sound fiscal policies, and will do so with an eye toward protecting the values of Arizonans and their hard-earned paychecks.

“FRC Action PAC is confident that Kimberly Yee will be a dedicated advocate for limited government and fiscal conservatism. She is the leader that Arizona needs, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of her candidacy for election to serve as Arizona’s State Treasurer,” concluded Boykin.
