DLCC Announces Arizona Spotlight Candidates

Press Releases

WASHINGTON — Today, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is announcing its first slate of Arizona Spotlight candidates. After making significant gains in 2018, Democrats need just two seats in the House and three seats in the Senate to flip the state from red to blue. Today’s slate of thirteen strong candidates and incumbents represents key races that will help Democrats reclaim the majority. 

“Our incredible progress in Arizona in 2018 gave us the momentum to finish the job this year,” said DLCC President Jessica Post. “Our outstanding Spotlight candidates are leaders in their community and fierce advocates for progress. With so much at stake this election, we’re excited to work with this incredible lineup of candidates to flip both chambers red to blue in November.”

The DLCC’s slate of Spotlight candidates includes candidates with a range of experiences and includes teachers, business leaders, immigrants, veterans, and other community leaders: 

Arizona is a top target state in the DLCC’s $50 million Flip Everything campaign to win legislative majorities across the country. Since Trump’s election, the DLCC and state Democrats have flipped more than 450 seats and 10 legislative chambers from red to blue.
