Here’s who is running in 2022 to represent Arizona in US House and Senate
Arizona’s 2022 election will be the first of a 10-year cycle using district maps that were drawn following the latest U.S. census.
Nearly 50 candidates are vying for the state’s 10 seats up for grabs in Congress, with 41 House and seven Senate hopefuls submitting the required number of signatures to qualify for the ballot by the April 4 deadline.
The primary election will be held Aug. 2, and the general is Nov. 8. (Search with your address here to confirm your new congressional district.)
On the Senate side, five Republicans are battling it out to face Democratic incumbent Mark Kelly in a high-profile race seen as a key piece to GOP hopes of gaining control of the upper chamber.
Eight of Arizona’s nine House races have incumbents seeking reelection. That includes Rep. Debbie Lesko, who is unopposed in the 8th Congressional District in the West Valley.
The general election matchup is pretty much set in two districts. In the Phoenix-based CD3, Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego will face Republican Jeff Zink. And Democrat Javier Ramos is the sole major party challenger to Republican Rep. Andy Biggs in CD5 in the East Valley, although that race includes a Republican write-in primary candidate and an independent who will be on the general election ballot.
In the only race for a vacant seat, five Republicans and three Democrats are wrangling to represent CD6 in southeastern Arizona.
Republican Reps. Paul Gosar and David Schweikert are the only incumbents with primary challengers (excluding Biggs’ write-in opponent, Martin Callan).
