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.
Sister District Policy Scorecard
This candidate has pledged commitment to the following statements:
- We must protect a woman’s right to choose the health care and reproductive services she wants and needs.
- We need to protect and expand our social safety net, not dismantle it.
- We should pursue common-sense gun safety policies, consistent with the Second Amendment and local community standards and needs, which vary from community to community.
- Climate change is real and we need to protect our environment.
