The following information is provided strictly by the candidate. San Tan Times will not tell you who you should vote for, we simply want you to vote. 

From The Andy Biggs Campaign


Congress must assure that we fund, begin, and complete the border wall. The catch and release program must end and Grant’s law must be signed into law by the President.

I support President Trump’s decision to authorize National Guard troops to secure the U.S. – Mexican border and applaud the brave men and women in Arizona who have answered the call. I will work to end illegal immigration and to secure our border in order to preserve our sovereignty and protect Americans.

I thank the men and women who enforce our border laws and will continue to support them.


I supported the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In December 2017, this bill became law and provides much-needed economic relief to the American people. This bill has laid the foundation for the revival of our economy and ensures that you keep more of your hard-earned money. This historic tax reform package allows American companies to compete globally and incentivize businesses to stay in America.

I am working to simplify our tax structure and make sure that all tax cuts become permanent.

Defending Life

I am a fierce defender of human life. My record shows I have fought to defund Planned Parenthood, ban late-term abortion (when a child can feel pain), and make sure individuals in the health care system will never be forced to take an innocent life.


Education decisions should be made by parents-not the Federal Government. I support families having full freedom to choose what works best for their children, including public, private, online, or homeschool. Every child should have an opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed in a career path they choose. I will continue to advance education priorities focusing on local control, maximum flexibility, and ensure that Arizonans have the most educational opportunities available to them.


As a board member of the Western Caucus in Congress, I work with Members of Congress from all over the country to confront energy and conservation issues facing America and specifically Arizona. We must unleash the full potential of United States energy production and be sure the Federal Government does not hinder this development through unnecessary regulation, ultimately resulting in higher prices for consumers.
