More about Randy:
Dr. Randy Friese is a veteran, doctor, and educator who has spent his career serving others and saving lives. He served in the Navy and is a trauma surgeon and critical care specialist at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, where he operated on and cared for Congresswoman Gabby Giffords following the January 8, 2011 attack in Tucson.
Raised by a single mother in a working-class home, Randy learned the importance of hard work, saving money, and serving his community at an early age. In 2014, Randy took the step to serve his neighbors in the State House and was the only Democrat to unseat a Republican incumbent in Arizona that year.
Randy has built a reputation as a bipartisan leader and progressive problem-solver who will stand up on the issues that matter and work with anyone to get good, lasting results for Arizona families.
Randy and his wife, Susan, live in Tucson and are engaged in their community while adopting and caring for senior golden retrievers. Now, Randy is running for Congress to bring more fact-based progressive solutions to Washington, protect our democracy, and help build our country back better than ever.
Arizona's 2nd Congressional District
Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District is a Democrat-held seat which encompasses the majority of the City of Tucson
and much of the surrounding area, including Cochise County. The seat has trended blue in recent cycles, with Hillary Clinton narrowly winning the district and Biden building on that performance and winning by over 10 points. With an outgoing Democratic incumbent, it is critically important that Democrats put forward a strong candidate who will protect this seat and keep it blue.
While Arizona’s Independent Redistricting Commission will draw new congressional lines later this year, the current 2nd District is unlikely to change as much as other Arizona districts because of slower population growth than the rest of the state.
