A Democrat has not run for Congress in Arizona’s 8th since 2012. This is the same district once represented by Gabrielle Giffords. This year, Democratic voters had TWO candidates from which to choose in a contested primary. Dr. Hiral Tipirneni earned the nomination and needs our help to win the April 24th Special Election in a deep-red district.
You may recall that this seat became vacant when Republican Representative Trent Franks resigned amid a scandal. Wouldn’t it be the best serving of justice for a woman to replace him in D.C.?
You can watch primary debates to hear Dr. Tipirneni go in depth on a variety of policy positions. Her science-based approach to problem-solving may be what draws you in to write for her. Maybe her 20+ as an emergency room physician and cancer researcher will give her the unique perspective on the challenges and failings of our public health system that will motivate you. Or it could just be you’d like to see an immigrant serve in Congress during such perilous times for Dreamers.
This is an important Federal Special Election. Like with the others we’ve supported with postcards from every corner of the country, we want to flip this seat to resist and roll back Trump’s harmful agenda. Thanks!
