Juan Ciscomani, one of the Republican candidates in AZ-06, refused to condemn Arizona Reps. Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs for promoting white nationalism and violence against fellow members of Congress, justifying it by saying they were just “reflecting the people they represent,” according to new reporting.
In an interview with the New York Times, Ciscomani was asked to comment on the actions of Gosar, who “has allied himself with the white nationalist Nick Fuentes and was censured last year for posting an animated video that depicted him killing a Democratic congresswoman,” and Biggs, who “has described the influx of migrants at the southwestern border as an ‘invasion.’”
Rather than take a stand against this disgraceful behavior from members of Congress, Ciscomani refused to condemn their actions, saying they were just “reflecting the people they represent.”
“Arizona voters deserve a representative who will stand up for what’s right, not a politician who covers for the rich and powerful and will say anything to get elected,” said DCCC spokesperson Monica Robinson. “Juan Ciscomani dodges questions because he knows when Arizonans learn about his radical agenda, it’ll spell doom for his election chances.”
