Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Arizona State Senate District 29 —David Raymer (D) and Janae Shamp (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Republican Party controls both chambers of Arizona’s state legislature. Arizona is one of 23 states with a Republican trifecta.
Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?
“Healthcare and education, and a humane, workable immigration policy that doesn’t victimize and criminalize people for wanting to work hard, pay taxes and become Americans.”
“Anything that makes the individual stronger relative to the government is something I’ll be passionate about. Our founding values are under attack, the left now wears their Socialist labels publicly and proudly, and the powers that be are always trying to expand government’s control over our personal lives.”
