Arizona's 9th congressional district was created as a result of the 2010 Census.[3] The first candidates ran in the 2012 House elections, and the first representative was seated for the 113th Congress in 2013.

The district is located entirely within Maricopa County. Most of the old 5th district became the new 9th; 60 percent of the 9th's territory came from the old 5th.[4] It is centered around Tempe and includes southern Scottsdale, western Mesa, northwestern Chandler, and southern Phoenix including the Ahwatukee district.

As of the 2012 general election, there were 344,770 registered voters. Of these, 118,077 (34.2%) were registered Republican, 107,123 (31.1%) were registered Democratic, 3,232 (0.9%) were registered Libertarian, and 761 (0.2%) were registered Green. A substantial number, 115,531 (33.5%) were independents.[5] It is split between liberal bastions such as Tempe (home to Arizona State University), strongly conservative portions of the East Valley, and more moderate Republicans in eastern and southern Phoenix.[6]

The district was one of seven across the United States whose winner was not declared on 2012 election night.[7] Although Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema held a narrow lead over Republican candidate Vernon Parker, the number of provisional and absentee ballots to be counted significantly exceeded the margin between the two.[7] Sinema was officially declared the winner on November 12, 2012.[8] Sinema was easily reelected in both 2014 and 2016.

Sinema gave up the seat to make a successful run for Senate in 2018 to replace retiring U.S. Senator Jeff Flake. Former Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton was elected to succeed her.

Complete election results


As the result of the closed primary on August 28, 2012, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema faced Republican Vernon Parker in the November 6 general election. Sinema was the first candidate to announce an intention to run.[9] A former member of both the Arizona House of Representatives and the Arizona State Senate, until resigning to launch her House campaign in Arizona's 9th congressional district, she was endorsed by EMILY's List, AFL-CIO, The Professional Firefighters of Arizona, Former Congressman Sam Coppersmith, among others.[10]

On February 9, 2012, former Clinton White House aide and Arizona prosecutor Andrei Cherny launched his bid for Congress in the new district.[13] Cherny was Chair of the Arizona Democratic Party. His campaign slogan is "Save the Middle Class," for his mission is to "put our government back on the side of Arizona's families."[14] He served as an Assistant Attorney General under Terry Goddard and worked in the Clinton White House. Both men have given their endorsements to Cherny. Former Ahwatukee State Rep. Rae Waters, Mesa City Councilman Dennis Kavanaugh, former Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon and many other strong Arizona leaders have done so as well.[14]
