Clive Bundy Nevada Rancher-Andy Tobin AZ Candidate For US Congress

The federal government's regulatory overreach in Nevada is appalling. Cliven Bundy is a rancher just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada who is the latest victim of overbearing government regulations. Despite his family grazing their cattle on public land for over 100 years, he is in debt to the Nevada Bureau of Land Management to the tune of $1 Million. Now his cattle are being impounded and his ranch is surrounded by armed federal agents.

In Nevada, the overregulation problem right now is about cattle and grazing rights. In Arizona it’s also about forestry. Folks are constantly telling me about the Arizona logging industry’s inability to harvest trees due to government regulation. Our forests provide fuel for under-producing power stations and good land management helps prevent the kind of forest fires that have devastated rural Arizona-- costing lives and homes.  Radical environmentalists collude with the federal government to make it impossible to utilize valuable Arizona resources and make our rural communities safer.  

It's my hope that Governor Sandoval will do everything in his power to ensure that the constitutional rights of Mr. Bundy and his family are not violated any further. I pray for a peaceful, constitutional, and just conclusion to this egregious federal overreach.
