Hiral Tipirneni

State: Arizona

Elected Office: U.S. Representative

Reason for Endorsement:

Hiral Tipirneni (AZ-08) is a first-generation Indian immigrant, and first-time candidate running in a special election on April 24 to replace disgraced Rep. Trent Franks in Congress. Arizona’s 8th District is a deep red district, and Democrats haven’t fielded a candidate since 2012. But Hiral is making the seat competitive by engaging the volunteer and activist communities like Our Revolution AZ Valley of the Sun (ORAZVOS), an Indivisible group in the district.

Year: 2018
