Trump-backed Republican Eli Crane won Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District and defeated Democrat incumbent Tom O’Halleran.

Democrat Tom O’Halleran represented Arizona’s 1st Congressional District for 3 terms and lost his seat to a Republican after redistricting (now 2nd district).

Eli Crane is a retired Navy SEAL and small business owner, Fox News reports.

Fox News reported:

The Associated Press named Eli Crane, Trump-backed Republican congressional candidate, as the victor in the race to represent Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District, defeating three-term Democrat representative Tom O’Halleran.

Before entering into the political scene, O’Halleran joined the Chicago Police Department as one of the youngest detectives in the city’s history. O’Halleran initially served as a Republican congressman in the Arizona House of Representatives from 2001 to 2006 and in the Arizona State Senate between 2006 and 2009, before abandoning the party in 2014 and obtaining his current position as a Democrat, a seat he has held since 2016.

The Democrat served three terms representing Arizona’s 1st Congressional District, but after redistricting throughout the state, sought re-election in the newly redrawn and more competitive 2nd Congressional District, against Trump-backed Republican challenger Crane.
