Progress Made

Democrats made progress in the Arizona State House with the help of our candidates.



Since 2010, the Arizona GOP has used its trifecta to launch attacks on immigrants’ rights and public education. But Arizona has been organizing with increasing progressive momentum to fight these policies, and flips in the state House may bring Arizona closer to having government that does right by all.

The Landscape

Both chambers of the Arizona state legislature remain under Republican control.
Democrats flipped 4 seats in the state House in the 2018 midterms.

The Stakes


Age at which any person may legally carry a concealed firearm without a permit

Arizona has some of the least restrictive gun laws in the country. Firearms purchased in the state are recovered from crimes in other states at a rate 2x the national average. Gun reform is essential to improving safety in the state—and nationwide.


Voters at risk

Arizona's state government has violated the National Voter Registration Act by refusing to update the voting addresses of over 500,000 voters who filed a change of address with the DMV.


Cut from public schools

Since 2008, Arizona public schools have been defunded by $1.5 billion, leading to a teacher wage crisis and serious lack of funding for public schools.
