Ann Kirkpatrick is standing in solidarity with the same out-of-state radical activists who boycotted Arizona, destroying jobs and hurting our economy.
Kirkpatrick has received $5,000 from the SEIU, the union group that helped initiate and lead the boycott of Arizona in 2010. Not a surprise given that Kirkpatrick opposed Arizona’s immigration law, SB1070, and repeatedly voted against efforts to secure our border when she was in the state Legislature.
Kirkpatrick’s money from big unions doesn’t stop there. In total, Kirkpatrick has received a total of $116,700 from powerful union special interests.
"Ann Kirkpatrick is walking arm in arm with the same radical activists who attacked Arizona and hurt our economy,” said Paton spokesman Barrett Marson."This relationship is a red flag. Kirkpatrick will continue to put these extremists before Arizonans if she gets back to Washington.”
