"I am proud to represent Arizona’s 1st Congressional District, which encompasses much of the northeastern part of the state outside Phoenix and Tucson and includes the Navajo Nation, the Hopi reservation, and the Gila River Indian Community. Since I was first elected to Congress, I have led on critical issues impacting Native American tribes, as well as rural and underserved communities. My focus is on economic development opportunities across Arizona. I have worked to expand access to affordable health care, develop broadband infrastructure, support veterans, and promote tribal sovereignty. 

 

Last cycle, I won by just 10,000 votes, one of the closest House races in the country. The NRCC has identified me as one of their top targets for the midterms, and Republican super PACs are already flooding the district with dark money and attack ads against me. With one of the most expensive media markets in the nation, and Republicans already attacking us, we need to make sure we have the resources to fight back and get out our message."

O’Halleran joined the city of Chicago police force in 1966 and was promoted to officer and sergeant before being commissioned as a homicide investigator. He joined the Chicago Board of Trade in 1979 and served two terms on its board of directors. He moved to Arizona upon retirement.
