We need to make gains in this chamber.

Arizona Democrats have picked up four seats in the state house over the last two elections and are just two seats away from winning a majority. Running under new legislative maps this year, Democrats must protect gains won over the last two cycles while flipping at least two vulnerable, Republican-held seats in 2022. New district lines mean that some state house incumbents are running for reelection in a district other than the one they currently serve. This is the case for Rep. Judy Schwiebert, who represents LD-20, and Rep. Jennifer Pawlik, who represents LD-17.

LD-2: Rep. Judy Schwiebert (LD-20) (D)

LD-4: Laura Terech (D)

LD-9: Lorena Austin (D)

LD-9: Seth Blattman (D)

LD-13: Rep. Jennifer Pawlik (LD-17) (D)

We need to make gains in this chamber.

Arizona Democrats were just two seats away from winning the state senate majority in 2020. Running under new legislative maps this year, Democrats must protect gains won over the last four years while flipping at least two vulnerable, Republican-held seats in 2022. New district lines mean that some state senate incumbents are running for reelection in a district other than the one they currently represent. This is the case for Sen. Christine Marsh, who is now running for SD-4 after flipping her current district, SD-28, by fewer than 500 votes in the 2020 elections.

SD-2: Jeanne Casteen (D)

SD-4: Sen. Christine Marsh (SD-28) (D)

SD-9: Eva Burch (D)

SD-13: Primary on 8/2
