The Arizona heat is not the only source of a mirage that has left voters in a haze. Candidates are fiercely fighting for their primary victories, leaving voters and the issues behind. The AZ NOW PAC offers a tall glass of water with its second round of endorsements. On Wednesday, August 3rd, early voting began for the Primary Election. AZ NOW’s members and others educated by the AZ NOW PAC endorsement process can rely on the rigorous questions on a broad feminist agenda that includes reproductive rights and justice, economic justice, ending violence against women, racial justice, LBGTQIA rights, and constitutional equality. This second round of feminist freedom fighters and up-and-comers listed here supports feminists dedicated to electing a majority of public officials who are committed to the advancement of women’s rights at all levels of political office.

National NOW has endorsed Victoria Steele for CD 2. This endorsement is based on the AZ NOW PAC federal candidate endorsement survey and resulting recommendation.
