Democrats already hold a 5-4 majority of Arizona’s seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, but voters in two key races likely will decide whether either party is able to change that mix.
Rep. David Schweikert, R-Ariz., is trying to win a sixth term in a GOP-leaning Scottsdale-based district after being reprimanded and fined $50,000 by the House this summer for 11 ethics violations.
Rep. Tom O’Halleran, D-Ariz., is the cautious favorite to win a third term in the district that covers northeastern Arizona, but voters there went for President Donald Trump by 1 percentage point four years ago.
