Eli Crane Appears to Have the Edge in CD2 Race
Arizona's vast 2nd Congressional District will be a key factor in determining which political party has the majority in the state's delegation and, ultimately, control of the U.S. House. Democrats have held the seat for the past decade, but the Republican seeking to knock off representative Tom O'Halleran has a strong advantage after redistricting. Former Navy SEAL Eli Crane emerged from a crowded Republican primary field to take on O'Halleran in the November 8th general election. The district stretches from Northern Arizona – including Prescott and Flagstaff -- through the eastern part of the state and into the suburbs north of Tucson. It also includes more than half of the Native American nations in the state.
