The Oath I Took

In 2012 I took an oath at the Arizona Federal Court House. It began, “I, Deedra Abboud, do solemnly swear  that I will support the Constitution and laws of the United States and the State of Arizona.”
I take that oath as seriously today as when I made it five years ago as an attorney, and it is this oath to the United States and to Arizona that propels me forward on my journey toward making Arizona, and our country, a better place.
Our Constitution is at the heart of everything that I stand before and aim to accomplish as a Senator. I believe that our founding documents are one of the greatest achievements of mankind, and will do nothing to contradict those lofty ideals our founding fathers gave us.
