Namesake of Chandler Construction Co. Being Visited By President Obama Staunch Republican

President Barack Obama is currently in south Chandler, visiting Erickson Construction Co.  He may be holding a small fundraiser there, too.  The Erickson in Erickson Construction Co. is a solid Republican supporter, with he and his wife sending $2,000 to the Republican National Committee in the weeks before Obama's election in 2008, and supporting Arizona GOP candidates for Congress.

The Ericksons have apparently sold the company that bears their name.  However, before and after that, they have contributed to former and current Reps. Matt Salmon and J.D. Hayworth, the presidential campaigns of Bob Dole and George W. Bush, and the RNC.
