Orthodontist Andrew Horne is one of four contenders in an ever-growing Democratic primary in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.
Horne, 36, a first-time political candidate, was the first to enter the race to become the party’s nominee to take on incumbent Rep. David Schweikert, R-Ariz.
Phoenix-area native Horne was born in 1986 at Scottsdale Memorial North, which is now HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center, and grew up in the district. While Horne is a familiar name in Arizona politics, Andrew Horne is no relation to Tom Horne, Arizona’s Republican superintendent of public instruction.
Horne set up his orthodontic practice in Colorado Springs, Colorado, near where he did his residency and worked there for four years before deciding to move back to Arizona in 2020. He returned to be closer to his family and to enroll his daughter Eleanor, 9, in the Scottsdale area and in the same school system he attended.
