Ann Kirkpatrick was born and raised in rural Arizona and spent her childhood on the White Mountain Apache Nation. She has worked as a prosecutor at the Pima County Attorney’s office, as well as in private practice. She served in the State House for two terms before running for Congress, where she has been a strong advocate to help Arizona’s veterans and Native American communities.
In office, Kirkpatrick helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. Kirkpatrick represents a swing district, and faces a tough re-election fight in 2020.
