Congressional Candidate Calls For New Generation of Arizona Republicans

Nov 22, 2019

Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar was re-elected to Congress in the 2018 election.  He beat his general election opponent by more than 35%. 

He did not face a primary opponent in the 2018 race.  So far, no Democrat has announced a run in the district.  Democrat David Brill lost to Gosar in the general election in 2018.

You’d think that means he is incredibly popular in Arizona’s 4th Congressional District and a lock for re-election in 2020.

But a Prescott Valley Republican says it is time for a new generation of leadership in CD 4.  She says the district needs a leader who better understands the needs of rural Arizonans and who will adopt a more civil and engaged approach to leadership.

Anne Marie Ward is a native Arizonan and this is her first campaign.  She stopped by the KAWC studios Thursday (interview below), when she was in town to attend the big water meeting hosted by the Arizona Department of Water Resources regarding a trade of Colorado River Water Rights to the City of Queen Creek. 

Water is one of the topics Ward wants to learn more about as she travels to the southern reaches of congressional district 4.  She is also interested in the unique relationship Yuma has with our southern neighbors in Mexico.
