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.
