Race Summary

Nearly a dozen Republicans told the national party they would not run for the seat, while national Democrats settled on former State Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick more than a year ago. With a big financial advantage over mining lobbyist Sydney Hay in a district that is rapidly moving toward Democrats, Kirkpatrick is the odds-on favorite.
