Democratic lawmaker Aaron Lieberman resigns to run for governor

State Rep. Aaron Lieberman resigned his seat to focus on his campaign for governor.

Lieberman, a Democrat from Paradise Valley, is seeking the Democratic nomination in next year’s gubernatorial race. He faces Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and former Arizona Department of Commerce Director Marco Lopez.

Lieberman said he was “all in” on running for governor, and that means he can’t do his job as a legislator.

“The simple truth is that running for Governor and serving in the legislature are two incredibly important jobs that demand near full-time service,” Lieberman said in a press statement on Monday. “My full focus will now be on this race for Governor to ensure I will have all the resources needed to compete and win.”

Lieberman was first elected in 2018 in District 28, which covers the Arcadia and Biltmore areas of Phoenix, north-central Phoenix and Paradise Valley. Traditionally, Democrats would run only one candidate for the House in the centrist but predominantly Republican district, a strategy known in legislative campaigns as a single-shot. Lieberman took the second seat for the Democrats, who now control both of the district’s House seats and its Senate seat.

1. Anyone know the chances of he or Hobbs winning?

I know it is early - just asking and I miss Napalitano, etc.
