Take Action Arizona
Senate; AZ-01, AZ-02, AZ-06
Arizona delivered wins for Democrats in 2020 with the election of Sen. Mark Kelly and 11 electoral votes for Biden/Harris. Now, Dems are facing a tough redistricting map and new voter registration laws. The result is three Dem seats in play; with a remote chance of flipping a seat blue; and at least one extremely vulnerable Democratic seat.
Kelly has raise substantial money and the grassroots support of Mission for Arizona, an ally of Together We Elect, is boosting his chances. Still, the first-term senator’s race is rated a tossup and the GOP is targeting him. (Biden won Arizona in 2020 by less than one percentage point). Republicans lined up to take on Kelly include Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.
In the House, Tom O’Halleran (D) is facing an extremely tough fight in AZ-02, the most vulnerable Democratic district which was redistricted from R+2 to R+6. Nine Republicans have already declared, with three having raised substantial money.
The open AZ-06 seat (Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick retired) is also a Republican target. Eight Dems are running, but Kirsten Engel and Daniel Hernandez are considered the lead candidates at this point. Juan Ciscomani is the leading Republican. The Arizona primary is August 2nd.
One potentially flippable seat for the Dems is AZ-01. Cong. David Schweikert (R) has raised $500K. There are two Democrats running; Jevin Hodge and Ginger Sykes Torres. Jevin Hodge has raised over $650K. Torres, new to the race has raised $133K.
