YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Congressman Paul Gosar is the projected winner for the United States House of Representatives for district four, a seat he has held since 2010.
The republican representative says he will continue to do what he does every year going to each county his district covers to find out what needs improvement.
Representative Gosar says he wants to regulate natural resources and keep an eye on the water shortages after a dry summer.
“Making sure that water because we've been having dry weather this fall and winter so far, so we want to make sure that we have ample water to get us through the year.”
But while his seat is retained, Gosar, along with other GOP leaders in Arizona, are fighting for President Trump as voting continues in the state.
The congressman even held a rally outside of the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix, Wednesday night.
After the rally, the group made its way over to the tabulation and counting center close by.
The group continued to protest some more leading the center to close down for the night.
Congressman Gosar argues protestors were calm even though video showed otherwise.
“So it's very very peaceful very very peaceful, some agitators were trying to get in people's faces. It didn't work, that is just the show of support to show the government that we the people are watching.”
"Cody Lee: and your thoughts you thought it was completely safe? Rep Gosar: Oh, not just my thoughts everybody's thoughts except for those that want to distort, there was no violence whatsoever, which appeared on the blue and brown, our police and sheriff's offices.”
Although, one reporter even claimed she was threatened by someone at the protest.
Gosar also joined other GOP members Thursday afternoon in Phoenix to show, once again, support for the president.
The congressman does plan to improve Yuma's infrastructure.
“So one of the big pieces that they would like to see is the highway from Yuma to the Yuma Proving Grounds. We got to get this on the inventory so that it gets done. I think that's the most pressing need that we actually have.”
