US Rep Barber of Arizona says he’ll run for re-election

PHOENIX — Congressman Ron Barber said he will run for a second term
representing Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District after saying last week that he
was uncertain.

Barber released a statement Wednesday saying he’s been focused on representing
his district and not on seeking another term. But Barber said he wants to make
it clear he’s running and is “putting everything in place to win.”

Barber told the Arizona Capital Times on Saturday that he needed to speak with
his family before making a formal decision on a re-election bid. He has already
filed paperwork with federal officials and is raising campaign cash.

Barber is one of three freshmen Arizona Democrats targeted by Republicans next
year. His district includes much of Tucson as well as other parts of
southeastern Arizona.
