District 7

The 7th district is heavily Hispanic and is located primarily in Phoenix, and includes portions of Glendale and the town of Guadalupe. The incumbent is Democrat Ed Pastor, who has represented the district since 2013, and previously represented the 4th district from 2003 to 2013 and the 2nd district from 1991 to 2013. He was re-elected with 82% of the vote in 2012 and the district has a PVI of D+16. Pastor is not running for re-election.[9]

Democratic primary

Pastor's retirement presents a "once- or twice-in-a-lifetime opportunity" for an open safe Democratic seat in Arizona and is predicted to set off a "free-for-all" in the primary that could "eclipse" the 10-candidate primary for retiring Congressman John Shadegg's seat in 2010. Because of this and Arizona's "resign-to-run" law, political consultant Mario Diaz predicted a "domino effect, from federal (offices) all the way down to city (councils)."[10]
