U.S. Representative Jim Banks (R-IN-03) on Tuesday endorsed Blake Masters in his quest to win the Republican nomination to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate.
Citing various policy stances, Banks called Masters the “future” of the Republican Party.
“I’m excited to announce my support for Blake Masters in his bid for the U.S. Senate in Arizona. Blake represents the future of our party and our country. He’s pro-worker, pro-family, and America First. I’m optimistic about his candidacy because Blake has the background to actually get things done. We all know that Big Tech has been weaponized against us and now poses a huge threat,” Banks said in a statement.

“Blake has worked in Silicon Valley, he knows the ideology that motivates these tech oligarchs, and he is committed to stopping them. Not to mention, Blake represents our best shot to unseat the Democrat incumbent, Mark Kelly, and to take back the Senate Majority. I’m proud to endorse Blake Masters for Senate.”
“Jim Banks’ faith in the American people and his willingness to fight for us set the bar for all who serve in Congress,” Masters stated in response to the endorsement. “I’ll be excited to work with him when I get to Washington.”
The first-time candidate has strung together a host of headlines of the past couple months, including an impressive fundraising quarter. Masters also gained a $10 million donation to a super PAC from tech billionaire Peter Thiel, who Masters has worked for.
The Arizona primary is crowded with polls showing Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich as the early front-runner, largely due to his name recognition throughout the state.
