The 1st congressional district of Arizona will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Arizona has a closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in a primary election is limited to registered members of that party.

Heading into the election the incumbent is Ann Kirkpatrick (D), who was first elected in 2012.

The 1st District stretches along the eastern and northeastern portions of the state and includes Apache, Navajo, Greenlee, Graham, Pinal, Gila and Coconino counties.[1]

Declared candidates

Race background

Incumbent Ann Kirkpatrick (D), is one of seven early targets listed by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in the 2014 congressional elections.[3] The seven targets align perfectly with the seven most Republican districts currently held by Democrats, according to FairVote's partisanship index. Kirkpatrick's district ranks as the 6th most Republican (45% D).[4]

Kirkpatrick is a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program. The program is designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2014 election.[5]
