Map Not in the Best Interests of Arizona 

Phoenix, Arizona — Arizona Republican Representative Jeff Flake, a candidate for United States Senate, today released the following statement regarding the Independent Redistricting Commission’s (IRC) proposed congressional map.

“Simply put, the IRC’s proposed congressional map is not in the best interests of the state of Arizona,” said Flake. “Drawing a map that everyone can agree on is an unenviable task in a state with concerns as unique as Arizona’s, but the IRC seems to have sacrificed communities of interest for competitiveness. While that might make some partisans happy, it ignores the law.”

Representative Flake announced his candidacy for the United States Senate in February. He’s running for the seat being vacated by Senator Jon Kyl.
