Navajo council asked to choose Renzi over Babbitt

The Navajo Nation Council is being urged to endorse incumbent Republican Rick Renzi for the U.S. House.

The council's Inter-government Relations Committee made the recommendation. Renzi's district includes large parts of the Navajo Nation. He has made several visits to the reservation.

Democrat Paul Babbitt is being supported by six Navajo Nation chapters. Resolutions adopted by the chapters state he will support tribal sovereignty.

Renzi represents Arizona's 1st Congressional district.
