Arizona's 1st Congressional District was a battleground district in 2014 due to the fact that the seat was held by a Democrat, but the district had a slight Republican lean. Incumbent Ann Kirkpatrick faced no challenger in the Democratic primary. In the Republican primary, Andy Tobin triumphed over Gary Kiehne and Adam Kwasman. The race between Tobin and Kiehne remained too close to call for over a week following the primary. In the end, Tobin won by 0.7 percent of the vote. Kirkpatrick ultimately defeated Tobin in the general election on November 4, 2014.[4][5][6]
