Lost in the General
Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick has won reelection in the sprawling 1st Congressional District of Arizona, defeating the BIPAC Action fund endorsed Republican Andy Tobin.
The district includes the Northeastern part of the state, Flagstaff and Navajo Nation.
Ms. Kirkpatrick’s seat on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee put her at the center of some important business issues in the 113th Congress (whether or not she remains on that committee remains to be seen).
Kirkpatrick was endorsed by the Arizona AFL-CIO, Arizona Education Association, and EMILY’s List.
A. Kirkpatrick 52.5% 94,551
A. Tobin 47.5% 85,693
