Paul Babbitt Wins Major Native American Endorsements

The Paul Babbitt for Congress campaign announced today the endorsements of a dozen chapters of the Navajo Nation.  The support of these Chapters is indicative of the tremendous support and Babbitt has received from Arizona's Native community.

Babbitt said, “I’m very proud of all the support that I’ve received from First Americans. The sovereign Navajo Nation, and the other Indian Nations across the district, believe in my ability to do better for Native Arizona.  This support is just a start of what’s to come.  The campaign is visiting Native Arizona on a nearly daily basis, taking the message of hope, of more funding for education, better access to health care, and expanding instead of cutting economic development programs, across Indian Country.”

Babbitt has spent his entire life in friendship with the sovereign Indian Nations of rural Arizona.  Two of his first jobs were working on at a Babbitt Brothers Trading Post in Tonalea and driving a soda delivery truck across Northern Arizona reservations.  As a county supervisor for the last 17 years, Babbitt has supported over 100 projects benefiting Indian Country.

The Chapters of the Navajo Nation announing their support of Paul Babbitt are:

  • Tolani Lakes

  • St. Michaels

  • Tsaile/Wheatfields

  • Inscription House

  • Shonto, Kayenta

  • Lupton

  • Indian Wells

  • Jeddito

  • Kaibeto

  • Coppermine

  • Round Rock
