Gilchrist backs Ross

Immigration activist Jim Gilchrist has chosen a candidate to endorse in the third congressional district race.

Gilchrist is backing republican Charles Ross, saying his background in national defense and education puts him ahead of the pack when it comes to upholding immigration laws. Gilchrist, founder and president of the Minuteman Project, is traveling the state on a three-day media tour.

"Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter are the two predominant pioneers in Congress in the House of Representatives who have literally pushed the immigration law enforcement issue, and with them being retired we're going to need at least two more congressmen to replace them, and I'm looking at Charlie Ross as being on of those congressman," said Founder and President of the Minuteman Project Jim Gilchrist.
