Safford City Councilman Chris Taylor (R), late last week, announced a congressional challenge to sophomore Rep. Tom O’Halleran (D-Sedona) in the competitive and expansive eastern Arizona 1st District. Mr. Taylor is an Afghan War veteran who is the founder of a non-profit organization that helps veterans and others recover from PTSD and addictions.
Democratic former Flagstaff City Councilwoman Eva Putzova is challenging Mr. O’Halleran in the Democratic primary. The Congressman defeated frequent Republican candidate Wendy Rogers, 54-46%, in November to win his first re-election campaign.
