Rep. Ruben Gallego


By Yvonne Wingett Sanchez | Arizona Republic

The last time Ruben Gallego made national headlines for launching a Democratic campaign, he did it with five words on Twitter.

Back in 2014, the then-state representative had assembled no large-scale campaign team, had no detailed polling on his electoral chances and had no sophisticated roll-out.

“I am in for Congress,” wrote Gallego, in announcing his bid for Arizona’s reliably blue 7th Congressional District.

Now, he is in the final stages of deciding whether he will run for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in 2020, a process that is outwardly more deliberative than his first gut-instinct announcement for a national post.
