U.S. Senate Candidate Deedra Abboud Officially on the Ballot

Candidate Abboud turns in 36% More Signatures than Required to Appear on the Primary Ballot for the 2018 Election

Phoenix, Arizona: May 16, 2017 Today in Phoenix, Arizona grassroots Senate Candidate Deedra Abboud filed the signatures required to appear on the August Primary Ballot and released the following statement,

“When I started this campaign over a year ago, critics said we’d never even make the ballot.

Fortunately I didn’t listen to the critics, I listened to the people!

The people of Arizona want a change. They want healthcare and human rights. They want representation and respect. They want leadership and loyalty.

And today it was my great honor to turn in the signatures from 7,685 people who have made it possible for me to appear on the ballot.

This campaign since day one has been entirely grassroots. Those seven thousand, six hundred and eighty five signatures -- they were earned. They happened because of communication, passion, and hard work.  Each of these signatures is a sign of hope, a sign that together we can make Arizona a better place for ourselves and our children.

I extend the deepest gratitude to everyone who has helped me reach this point, to those who have signed the petitions, to those who have volunteered, and to those who have challenged me and championed me at numerous campaign events and town halls.

And you turned out in force! We traveled the entire state and visited with Arizonans from 14 of the 15 Arizona counties. I’m proud our nomination signatures are a true representation of Arizona.

This is really just the beginning. I have absolutely no plans to slow down. I hope you’ll join me as I continue my work for all of you, and all of Arizona. United, We Rise.”
