Race to Watch: Arizona

Voters all over the United States will make their voices heard at the ballot box on November 6. The battle for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate come down to just a few competitive races, so it’s more important than ever for cannabis professionals to be informed about the views of key candidates running for office. NCIA has compiled information about candidates running in 25 competitive races for the House of Representatives and three for the Senate that we consider uniquely important to the cannabis industry due to their views on marijuana policy and/or their geographic location.

Senate Races

This is one of the tightest Senate races in the country. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema is running against former Rep. Martha McSally to take current Sen. Jeff Flake's seat. Rep. Sinema is a vocal supporter of marijuana and has voted to protect CBD, medical and adult-use cannabis programs, veterans access, hemp, and banks that choose to service the cannabis industry. She is also a co-sponsor of HR 2215, the SAFE Banking Act. While she was in the House, McSally voted against amendments that would have protected CBD, medical and adult-use cannabis programs, veterans access, hemp, and banks that choose to service the cannabis industry.
