U.S. Rep. Kirkpatrick won't run again in 2022

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick announced that she won't seek re-election in 2022.

Kirkpatrick, a Democrat, has represented Arizona's second Congressional District since 2019. She also served stints in the House of Representatives from 2009 to 2011 and 2013 to 2017.

She sought treatment for alcoholism last year following a serious fall. She defeated Republican challenger Brandon Martin in November's election.

She released this statement Friday:

“Every two years for the past 18 years, there has been an election in Arizona with my name on the ballot. Serving Arizonans has been my absolute honor and joy, but after much consideration, I have decided not to seek re-election in 2022. I will continue the good fight through this Congress, and when the term is up, I will hand over the baton.
