ARIZONA’S 1ST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

ARIZONA’S 1ST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

Incumbent: Tom O’Halleran (D)

Challenger: Wendy Rogers (R)

Current Polling: No recent polling data available

Why this race matters: One of the largest districts in the country, this rural northeastern Arizona district has a large Native American population and agriculture roots. Although the district voted for Trump in the 2016 election, Democrat Tom O’Halleran, the Blue Dog Rural Task Force Chair, works hard to represent this deeply rural district. Ranked “likely Democrat” by both the Cook Political Report and Rasmussen report, O’Halleran’s bona fides in the district rest on his frequent presence in all parts of the district listening to constituent concerns.
