WILLIAMS, Ariz. (AP) - Myron Lizer has no qualms about it: As one of the top officials on the country's largest Native American reservation, he's a proud Donald Trump supporter.

The Navajo Nation vice president says Native American values - hard work, family and ranching - align more with the GOP than with Democrats.

"I'm finding that we're giving the Navajo Republican voters confidence in coming out and showing their support," he told The Associated Press. "We don't need that, per se, but we do need that, but we do need that at the polls."
