FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Almost forgotten during the coronavirus, a primary election will be held Aug. 4 for federal and state offices in Arizona.
The congressional race for District One, covering the Navajo and Hopi reservations as well as Flagstaff, will draw plenty of interest as Democrats want to hold onto the seat with the hopes of retaking the House of Representatives. District 1 is also known as a swing district where either Democrats or Republicans are capable of winning.
District 1 also contains the largest number of Native Americans of any district in America with 12 tribes in the district.
U.S. Rep. Tom O’Halleran will be challenged by Eva Putzova in the Democratic primary while Tiffany Shedd and Nolan Reidhead will battle it out in the Republican primary.
