Debra Kay Lesko (née Lorenz; born November 14, 1958) is an American politician and a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Arizona's 8th congressional district since 2018. The district is in the West Valley portion of the Valley of the Sun and includes Glendale, Surprise, Sun City, Peoria, and part of western Phoenix.

Lesko served in the Arizona Senate from 2015 to 2018. She was president pro tempore of the Arizona Senate from 2017 to 2018.[1] Lesko also served as a member of Arizona House of Representatives from 2009 until 2015. She became the Representative for Arizona's 8th congressional district after winning a 2018 special election.[2]

Early life and education

Lesko was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and grew up nearby, the daughter of Delores and Don Lorenz. She received a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Wisconsin and in the 1980s moved to Arizona, owning a construction sales business.[3]

In 1985, she married Jeffrey Allen Ignas. In 1988, Lesko was charged in Conroe, Texas, with a misdemeanor for tampering with government records. The case was dropped in 1994. In 1988, Ignas was sentenced to 10 years in prison for fraud. After serving only four years of the sentence, he was released from prison in 1992. In October 1992, he and Lesko filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection. The couple was also sued twice in 1993: for failure to pay a $10,000 rental equipment bill and for an additional unpaid $11,000 bill. They filed for bankruptcy again that year. Ignas was physically abusive to Lesko, including punching her in the stomach when she was pregnant with her daughter. In 1993, Lesko filed for divorce. The next year, the second bankruptcy protection case was closed.[4] Ignas, now known as Jeffrey Allen Herald, is now incarcerated by the Arizona Department of Corrections, with a release date of September 2022. Debbie later married Joe Lesko.[3]

Early career

In the early 2000s, Lesko became involved in the Peoria Unified School District. She served on the district's community committee. In 2006, she ran for school board. She was endorsed by Trent Franks. She placed fourth out of five candidates. She participated in school board meetings and was a contributor to The Arizona Republic. Her contributions to the newspaper included opinion pieces about illegal immigration and domestic violence.[4]

Elections

2018 special election

On December 20, 2017, Lesko announced she would run in the special election to replace Representative Trent Franks, who resigned amid allegations of sexual harassment. Her state senate district included the bulk of the congressional district. She also announced that her resignation from the Arizona Senate.[5] Although Arizona's resign-to-run laws allowed her to remain in the state senate since she was running in a special election (and she was in the final year of her term in any event), she resigned on January 8, 2018.[6]

Lesko won the Republican nomination and faced the Democratic nominee, physician Hiral Tipirneni, in the general election on April 24.[7] She was endorsed by President Donald Trump, who said that Lesko was a "conservative Republican".[8]

She won the election on April 24, with 52.6% of the vote to Tipirneni's 47.4.[9] The win was by a narrower margin than expected,[10] with observers suggesting that it was indicative of a coming Democratic wave in the 2018 midterm elections.[11][12] It was the closest contest in what is now the 8th since 1976, when Bob Stump won what was then the 3rd District with just 47% of the vote[13] (the district was renumbered as the 2nd in 2003, and has been the 8th since 2013).

According to the Associated Press, the election sent "a big message to Republicans nationwide: Even the reddest of districts in a red state can be in play this year."[14]

2018

Lesko defeated Tipirneni again for a full two-year term by a slightly wider margin, taking 55.5% to Tipirneni's 44.5%.[15] It was still the closest general election in the district in 42 years, and the closest a Democrat had come to winning a full term in the district since Stump switched parties in 1982.

Campaign finance complaints

In January 2018, Lesko's campaign committee, Re-elect Debbie Lesko for Senate, gave $50,000 to Conservative Leadership for Arizona, a federal PAC authorized to spend independently of other campaigns. It was created eight days before taking the money from Lesko's state campaign committee.[16] The PAC raised almost no other cash, records show, and used the money to support Lesko with yard signs, while her congressional campaign spent heavily on TV ads. Phil Lovas, a candidate in the Republican primary, complained to the Federal Election Commission and Arizona Attorney General alleging multiple violations in February 2018.[16]

The PAC maneuver also prompted criticism from Lesko's other opponent in the Republican primary, Steve Montenegro, who accused her of "illegally funneling money into her SuperPAC" and said she "knowingly lied about it by filing false campaign reports."[16] In March 2018, the Campaign Legal Center also filed a federal campaign finance law violation complaint against Lesko, alleging that her transfer of $50,000 from her state campaign to an independent group that spent nearly all the cash backing her congressional run was illegal.[17]

Tenure

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Lesko appeared at a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at a time when coronavirus cases were surging across the nation.[18] When asked about the public health risk the rally posed, she responded, "I think the Trump administration and the campaign is doing all it can by doing temperature checks and handing out masks."[18] She defended the rally organizers' decision not to require face masks. During the time, she posted pictures of herself among people; in some pictures she wore a mask, in others she did not.[18]

Committee assignments

Caucus memberships

Political positions

Abortion

Lesko opposes abortion.[22] She has proposed legislation to give employers religious exemptions from providing contraceptives in health insurance plans.[23][24][25] She has proposed legislation that would allow health officials to conduct warrantless and unannounced inspections of abortion clinics, like they do for all other health institutions in the state, which critics said undermined the privacy of the clinics' patients.[26]

Donald Trump

Lesko has been described as a loyal ally of former President Donald Trump.[18] In December 2019, she voted against impeaching him.[27] She said there is "no proof, none, that the president has committed an impeachable offense."[28] In defending Trump, she claimed that he had not asked President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden, his opponent in the 2020 presidential election.[29]

In December 2020, Lesko was one of 126 Republican members of the House of Representatives to sign an amicus brief in support of Texas v. Pennsylvania, a lawsuit filed at the United States Supreme Court contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election, in which Biden defeated Trump.[30] The Supreme Court declined to hear the case on the basis that Texas lacked standing under Article III of the Constitution to challenge the results of an election held by another state.[31][32][33]

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a statement that called signing the amicus brief an act of "election subversion." She also reprimanded Lesko and the other House members who supported the lawsuit: "The 126 Republican Members that signed onto this lawsuit brought dishonor to the House. Instead of upholding their oath to support and defend the Constitution, they chose to subvert the Constitution and undermine public trust in our sacred democratic institutions."[34][35] New Jersey Representative Bill Pascrell, citing section three of the 14th Amendment, called for Pelosi to not seat Lesko and the other Republicans who signed the brief supporting the suit, arguing, "the text of the 14th Amendment expressly forbids Members of Congress from engaging in rebellion against the United States. Trying to overturn a democratic election and install a dictator seems like a pretty clear example of that."[36]

Lesko was one of the 139 Republican representatives to vote to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Congress at the 2021 United States Electoral College vote count.[37]

Economy, taxes and regulation

Lesko has said that she would have voted for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the Republican Party's 2017 tax overhaul.[38] She favors a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, and said that "on the federal level, there has to be a lot of areas where we can cut spending."[38]

In 2017, Lesko championed legislation that would allow payday lenders to provide loans at annual interest rates as high as 164%.[39] In 2016, she opposed efforts to increase the minimum wage in Arizona to $10 by 2017 and $12 by 2020.[40]

Education

Lesko favors empowering private schools and charter schools.[41]

Environment and energy

Asked at a debate involving seven candidates in January 2018 whether she believed that humans contribute to climate change, Lesko did not raise her hand.[42] After a long pause, she said that the question was "loaded" and added, "Is some of it, maybe, human-caused? Possibly. But certainly not the majority of it. I think it just goes through cycles and it has to do a lot with the sun. So no, I'm not a global warming proponent."[42]

In 2016, Lesko crafted a measure that would give Arizona utilities the right to charge separate rates for customers who produced their own energy through solar panels in order to prevent $600 million in subsidies from non-solar customers to solar customers.[43] She crafted the measure with the utilities' assistance.[43]

As of 2020, Lesko has a 1% lifetime score from the League of Conservation Voters, among the very lowest.[44]

Gun control

Lesko opposes changes to existing gun laws, saying "I think there's enough laws. The laws need to be enforced."[38] She has received an "A" rating from the NRA.[45]

Health care

Lesko opposes "universal health coverage" and favors repealing the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).[38] She opposed Arizona's expansion of Medicaid coverage and sued former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer after she expanded Medicaid.[46]

During a House Energy and Commerce Committee debate in February 2021, Lesko said that people of Hispanic origin are "very good workers", but priority for COVID-19 vaccine distribution needs to be for those who "are here legally."[47]

Immigration

Lesko made the construction of a border wall on the Mexico border the centerpiece of her 2018 campaign, and pledged to back the Trump administration's hardline positions on border security and immigration reform.[48][49][41]

LGBT rights

Lesko strongly opposes the Equality Act, a bill that would expand the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. She urged Congress members to vote against the bill.[50]
