Medical group yanks endorsement of Rep. Debbie Lesko over ‘phony’ doctor TV ads

By Ronald J. Hansen | Arizona Republic

An Arizona medical group rescinded its endorsement of U.S. Rep. Debbie Lesko on Thursday after the Republican again called into question the professional legitimacy of her Democratic challenger, who is a physician.

The Arizona Medical Association did not endorse Hiral Tipirneni, a former emergency-room doctor who now works as a cancer-research advocate, but it did take back an endorsement for what it said was the first time in its history.

The move capped a week of unrest among its members as they saw Tipirneni attacked in yard signs as a “fake doctor” and on TV as recently as Thursday as a “phony.” The group pressured Lesko to take down the signs last week, only to see her maintain a theme of professional dishonesty by Tipirneni on TV.
