The worst kept secret in Arizona politics has finally been revealed. Congressman Ruben Gallego has announced he will be running for U.S. Senate in 2024. He made the announcement Monday with a press release and in an over three minute video. In the video he says: “the rich and the powerful don’t need more advocates, it’s the people who are still trying to decide between groceries or utilities that needs a fighter for them.” He adds, “if you’re more likely to be meeting with the powerful and not the powerless, you’re doing this job incorrectly.” The Senate race is likely to be a three-way race between the Democrat Gallego, an unknown Republican candidate and Senator Kyrsten Sinema, who recently changed to an independent. If elected, he would be Arizona’s first Latino Senator.
