A high number of Democrats are running for the Arizona State Legislature this year.

So far, 112 Democrats have told the Arizona Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, which recruits candidates to run for the state House and state Senate, they intend to run for the state legislature in 2018. That number includes 55 people of color and 51 women.

For many of them, this is the first time they’re running for office.

“We have a lot of new faces this year,” Dana Walton, executive director of the Arizona Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee said.

She said many of the candidates running for the first time are “dismayed” with the state of affairs in the state legislature. As an example, she pointed to funding for education.
