PHOENIX — Former President Donald Trump announced Tuesday his endorsement of Abraham Hamadeh for Arizona Attorney General.

Trump praised Hamadeh for being a veteran and former prosecutor, while continuing to assert his accusation that the 2020 election was rigged.

“Abe Hamadeh knows what happened in the 2020 election, and will enforce voting laws so that our elections are free and fair again,” Trump said in a statement.

The endorsement follows Trump’s backing of venture capitalist Blake Masters for Arizona’s U.S. Senate seat, a race that includes fellow Republican candidate and current Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

Trump has criticized Brnovich for shying away from taking action regarding the former president’s unfounded assertions.

Hamadeh thanked Trump on Twitter for the endorsement.

Trump in the endorsement said Hamadeh will also go after the drug cartels and secure the U.S.-Mexico border while standing up to Democrats and protecting the Second Amendment.

Hamadeh, an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army Reserve, is running against Lacy Cooper, Rodney Glassman, Andrew Gould, Dawn Grove and Tiffany Shedd in the Republican primary to take on Democrat Kris Mayes and Libertarian Michael Kielsky in the general election.
