Juan Ciscomani for Congress
By Lacey Latch | Arizona Republic
Republican Juan Ciscomani, a senior adviser to Gov. Doug Ducey, announced Tuesday he is running for U.S. Congress to represent the state’s second congressional district, which includes a majority of Tucson.
The district, which was a battleground between Republicans and Democrats in past elections, will have a new member of Congress following the retirement of Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick.
“I grew up right here in southern Arizona. I’ve dedicated my career to fighting for this community, and I’m ready to take that fight to Congress,” Ciscomani said in a news release announcing his campaign. “Today, Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are crushing our country, our state and our district with out-of-touch policies. We must stop their big-government schemes and failed approach to the border.”
Ciscomani’s campaign priorities include border security and election integrity, finishing the border wall and strengthening state voting laws. Ciscomani also touted his support of free speech, gun rights, lower taxes and abortion restrictions.
