2018 AzNA PAC ENDORSED CANDIDATES - General Election


December 4, 2018

Announcing our 2018 General Election Legislative Winners!

These candidates all went through a rigorous process that included a questionnaire and follow-up interviews (for candidates who were not currently in office) or vetting of voting records on nursing and healthcare issues (for candidates currently in office).

These candidates represented present and future leaders in the healthcare community. They are a mixture of blue and red, men and women, young and old. We were excited to stand with them, help them in their campaigns, and win or lose, keep working to advance the nursing profession and promote a healthy Arizona.

Some did win as you’ll note below, and some did not. We are proud of our endorsed candidates - all of them! - and look forward to working closely with the 2018 AZ legislators to improve the healthcare of all Arizonans.

Your AZNA PAC is ready to move forward into the new year and plan the work that needs to be done in anticipation of the 2020 election cycle!

What is the AzNA-PAC?


The purpose of the AzNA-PAC is to endorse candidates for the Arizona Legislature based upon the principles of the AzNA Public Policy Agenda. AzNA-PAC encourages nurses to become active and effective in shaping public policy through the electoral process. AzNA-PAC raises funds to educate nurses about political action. The Board of Trustees evaluates, endorses, and contributes to candidates for the State Legislature in Arizona who have clearly demonstrated responsible awareness of nurses' needs.
