The son of a janitor, Rep. Tom O’Halleran started his career as a police officer and a homicide detective. He served three terms as a member of the Arizona House of Representatives, followed by a term as a State Senator before running for Congress.
In office, O’Halleran 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. O’Halleran represents a swing district in Arizona that voted Republican in the 2016 presidential election, and faces a tough re-election fight in 2020.
