QUOTES:

  • “The Cranston comeback story was all about people working together. That’s how we got it done. We can curb wasteful spending, lower prices, and utilize American energy. Together we will unleash America’s comeback.”
  • “We need a different type of leader in DC. We need a problem solver. We need leaders who are willing to work with people on both sides of the aisle to bring common sense solutions to our everyday problems. I did just that in Cranston, and I can’t wait to do that for you as your next Congressman.”
  • “We’re going to work hard every single day to get our country back on track, so that your family and mine can live the great American Dream.”

ENDORSEMENTS:

  • “I think this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I’m not only just coming here today, but we’re going to be here for the next 94 days to make sure he gets across the district. It wouldn’t be about a Republican, it would be about America getting back on the right track. It’s a change in this country that people want to have safety. They’re tired of the cost of living, the inflation that’s being driven by the Democrats. They don’t want to defund the police. They want a secure border. They want to stop fentanyl from coming across. We need somebody like Allan to make that happen.” – Kevin McCarthy, US Representative for CA-23
  • “Allan Fung has a proven record of getting results for the people of Rhode Island. His problem solving skills are much needed in Washington. Allan has put RI-02 on the map for Republicans, and it is because of strong candidates like Allan that we are going to flip swing districts across the country and earn a historic majority this November. I am proud to fully endorse his campaign for Congress.” – Elise Stefanik, US Representative for NY-21
  • “Allan Fung will be a strong advocate for Rhode Island’s small businesses. As the former mayor of Cranston, he has supported pro-small business policies and has committed to focusing on issues impacting small businesses in Congress such as combating inflation, stopping out-of-control spending from the federal government, and ensuring that the nation’s workforce is properly trained. Small businesses need reliable voices in Congress, and we are confident that Allan Fung will be one.” – Christopher Carlozzi, National Federation of Independent Business
