Arizona State LEGISLATIVE District 6
Bobby Tyler is the current Mayor of Holbrook, and a third-generation Arizonan from McNary, AZ. His family originally migrated from Louisiana to Arizona for better opportunities and higher wages—something he want to bring back to northern Arizona.
Bobby has lived a life of public service. After completing public high school, he went to work for the City of Holbrook first as a truck driver, and later in the maintenance department as a maintenance helper and a fuel handler. A few years later, he was awarded a machinist apprenticeship. He has also volunteered as a firefighter and a citizens’ police officer for a combined thirteen years with the City of Holbrook.

Why this Race is Important
Arizona is a blue flip state. Democrats are only three seats away from flipping its state senate blue.
Arizona is currently a trifecta state for the Republicans, which means they control the governorship, the state house and the state senate. Right now, Democrats have 13 seats in the Arizona Senate and Republicans have 17 seats. Our goal is to flip the Arizona senate blue by helping fragile incumbents hold their seats and flipping three seats blue.
Arizona Legislative District 6 is particularly important because it is nested in Congressional District 1, which is a competitive district with a Cook PVI score of R+2, went for Trump and is being targeted by the Republicans. Getting out the vote for our down-ballot races will not only help our fantastic candidates, but it will also help keep this congressional seat blue.
