Kirkpatrick Calls It Quits: Congresswoman Won't Seek Another Term in 2022

Fresh on the heels of the signing of the $1.9 trillion COVID relief package, Arizona Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D) announced last week she will not seek a sixth term in 2022.

The congresswoman represents Southern Arizona's District 2, which includes midtown Tucson, eastern Pima County and Cochise County.

Kirkpatrick, 70, was first elected in CD2 in 2018. She previously represented districts in Northern Arizona between 2008 and 2016. (She lost in the 2010 Tea Party wave and came back two years later after redistricting created a different district.) She left Congress in 2016 to unsuccessfully challenge the late Sen. John McCain and then relocated to Pima County to run for Congress.

Kirkpatrick also took a leave of absence last year to seek recovery for alcohol addiction.
