Recommendations for Progressive Candidates in the Primary in Arizona (Primary on August 28, but early voting starting now)

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Arizona primary

Note that Arizona has primaries that are open to unaffiliated voters, which means that if you are registered with a party, you have to vote in their primary, but if you are not registered with any party, you can choose which primary to vote in.

Below are candidates from our BKAS series that have progressive values. In general, the list contains candidates who have Bernie-like positions – Medicare-for-All, increased minimum wage, getting money out of politics, free college tuition, etc. However, not every candidate may support every position Bernie has. If you don’t know the candidate, check out their linked webpage. If you are not comfortable voting for any of these candidates, you can find others running in these races listed on the Green Papers or Ballotpedia for US Senate, Ballotpedia for US House or Ballotpedia for Governor. Also, here is the link to the BKAS post on Arizona – Arizona , but note that it was written way back in early-August of 2017 and candidates have changed. Check the Green Papers or Ballotpedia links above for the most up-to-date list of candidates in your district. The list below includes candidates that have declared since those original Arizona posts were made.


Finally, I may have missed some candidates, so if anyone else knows of a good progressive I’ve left off this list, let me know.


Governor:

Kelly Fryer or David Garcia

US Senator:

Deedra Abboud (Justice Democrat Candidate). There is also a write-in Green Party candidate, Angela Green, though she describes herself as “a Democrat with a Republican background running as a Green Candidate” and also says “I want to be known as the Queen of Capitalism and make these Red and Blue states GREEN with money, organic farming and medicinal marijuana.” She doesn’t sound like a typical Green Party candidate and I question how committed she is to the Green Party agenda.

US Representatives:

AZ-01: Incumbent “Democrat” Tom O’Halleran is extremely conservative for a Democrat. Unfortunately, he does not have a Democratic challenger. The Republican candidates are also very conservative. There is a Libertarian running as a write-in candidate, Zhani Doko. There’s not a ton of information available about him, but he seems to have fairly typical Libertarian positions (free market, fewer regulations) and opposes US involvement in foreign wars.

AZ-02: There are lots of candidates that support Medicare-for-All and other progressive positions. I recommend one of these – Mary Matiella (Justice Democrat Candidate), Billy Kovacs, Barbara Sherry or Bruce Wheeler

AZ-03: Raul Grijalva (Justice Democrat Candidate)

AZ-04: Delina Disanto is the most progressive and supports Medicare-for-All. David Brill supports allowing people to buy into Medicare as a public option.

AZ-05: Joan Greene

AZ-06: Garrick McFadden

AZ-07: The incumbent Ruben Gallego is fairly progressive and signed on to support John Conyers Medicare-for-All bill (HR 676). However, note that he has not yet joined the Medicare-for-All Caucus in Congress, making me question his support… There is a Democratic primary challenger, Catherine Miranda, but she does not call for Medicare-for-All on her website. In addition, there is a write-in Green Party candidate, Gary Swing, though I’m not sure he’s a very serious candidate. I guess voters will have to decide who they prefer in this race.

AZ-08: The only Democrat running is Hiral Tipirneni, who supports allowing people to buy into Medicare as a public option, but does not support Medicare-for-All.

AZ-09: Current Mayor of Phoenix Greg Stanton is the only Democrat running. His website has no information on the policies he supports.


Secretary of State:

There is only one Democratic candidate, Katie Hobbs. She says that “she will act to end the outrageously long lines and crippling incompetence that are preventing Arizonans from participating in our elections”.


Attorney General:

There is one Democratic candidate January Contreras. She previously worked at the Department of Homeland Security under Janet Napolitano.


Other State Executive Offices:

State Superintendent for Public Instruction – David Schapira (endorsed by Our Revolution)


Also, here are Ballotpedia links for other State-level races. I haven’t had time to research these candidates, so you’ll have to do your own research on them.

State Senate:

https://ballotpedia.org/Arizona_State_Senate_elections,_2018

District 22 – Brianna Westbrook

District 29 – Martin Quezada

State House:

https://ballotpedia.org/Arizona_House_of_Representatives_elections,_2018

District 18 – LaDawn Stuben

District 24 – Marcus Ferrell

Supreme Court:

Appellate Courts:

https://ballotpedia.org/Arizona_intermediate_appellate_court_elections,_2018

Local Judges:

https://ballotpedia.org/Arizona_local_trial_court_judicial_elections,_2018

State Ballot Measures:

https://ballotpedia.org/Arizona_2018_ballot_measures

Note that one of the four ballot measures would prohibit state and local governments from increasing taxes on services. This includes any kind of tax or fee. Services that are often taxed include things like hair salons, barbers, lawn care, cleaning services, etc. Now, no one wants to pay taxes, but by limiting the ability of locales to increase taxes when needed, you force cuts in government services. I’d argue that allowing state and local governments flexibility in taxing services is a good idea and I would vote “no” on this measure.
