From Congressman Paul Gosar: "Bob Thorpe has been great for the people in LD 6 and he is an effective conservative legislator. He has strong, principled constitutional views that he sticks to. He grounds his votes and actions on the view that government should be limited, individual liberty should be enlarged, and government should be leaner and more efficient. He has earned our support by his actions."

State Representative Bob Thorpe has served in the AZ House since 2013 where he currently is the Chairman of the Government and Higher Education Committees, and also sits on the Education, Federalism and Rules Committees. Bob has received numerous awards and recognitions including the most recent ACCCC's Arizona Community Colleges 2016 Legislators of the Year.
