Chandler City Councilman Sam Huang has announced he will seek the Republican nomination in Arizona’s 9th Congressional District (CD9)next year.
Huang, whose first term on the council ends in January 2021, wishes to challenge U.S. Rep. Greg Stanton, D-Phoenix, to represent a district that stretches from Chandler to northern Scottsdale.
Health care, education and immigration are the top three issues Huang said he would focus on if elected.
The Taiwanese native highlighted how his home country has more affordable health care than the United States.
Medical expenses are getting to be outrageous, Huang said, and he thinks there should be more action in Washington on the issue.
