Rep. Eric Sorensen (D-IL)

Arizona Dems receive key endorsements, Sorensen raises $475K

Arizona will be a fascinating state to watch in 2024. With a blockbuster Senate race featuring three major candidates and a host of competitive House seats, all eyes will be on the Grand Canyon State. We have two pieces of news today on the House side.

Arizona’s 1st District: Two major labor unions — the National Education Association and the Arizona Education Association — are endorsing Marlene Galán-Woods in the Democratic primary.

Galán-Woods is seeking to challenge Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.), one of the 18 House Republicans who represent districts won by President Joe Biden in 2020. Galán-Woods is a former broadcast journalist and was married to Arizona’s former GOP attorney general Grant Woods.

Arizona’s 3rd District: The Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC is endorsing Raquel Terán in the primary to fill Rep. Ruben Gallego’s (D-Ariz.) seat. Terán has served in the state House and Senate, and is a longtime organizer for immigrant rights. If elected, Terán would be Arizona’s first Latina member of Congress.

Q3 fundraising update: Frontline Democratic Rep. Eric Sorensen (Ill.) raised $475,000 in the third quarter and has $1.1 million on hand.
