Democrat Hiral Tipirneni running in GOP-leaning district against Rep. David Schweikert

By Ronald J. Hansen | Arizona Republic 

Hiral Tipirneni, the physician and cancer research advocate who made a splash running for Congress as a Democrat in deeply Republican territory twice last year, is making another run, this time against five-term incumbent Rep. David Schweikert.

On Friday, Tipirneni filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission making official something she had been telegraphing for months: that she intended to run in Schweikert’s Scottsdale-based 6th Congressional District.

It means Tipirneni will run outside the district where she lives and Democrats will have a formidable fundraiser and aggressive campaigner in a Republican-leaning district the party has made its No. 1 target in Arizona in 2020.

Last year, Tipirneni lost twice to Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., in the northwest Valley-based 8th Congressional District.
