As Arizona voters, we have an important choice to make this year!

Extremist candidates like Kari Lake and Mark Finchem are pursuing a radical, far-right agenda that endangers our communities, our economy and our democracy. Lake, Finchem and their allies have called for the 2020 election to be overturned, want to ban all abortions in Arizona (with no exceptions for rape or incest), have spread racist rhetoric about immigrants, and even proposed putting cameras in classrooms to spy on kids!

It’s up to us to reject these far-right extremists and select candidates who will actually fight for the working people of Arizona. 
 

Below are our recommendations for your ballot. Not all of these candidates received our endorsement, but we are also conscious of the importance of this election and the impact it will have on our families; this is why we are also mentioning the following candidates, which we believe are the better choice in this election.

Candidates who have the LUCHA Blue Endorsed badge or whose names appear in bold are LUCHA-endorsed candidates. They have undergone a rigorous selection process and have earned LUCHA’s official endorsement. These candidates aren’t just better than their opponents – they’re aligned with our values and ready to co-govern alongside us and our communities.
