  • Cook Political Report: Likely Democrat
  • Population Centers: Tucson, 523,278 (partial, state’s 2nd largest city); Sierra Vista, 45,187; Douglas, 17,288; Bisbee, 5,507; Benson, 5,056; Willcox, 3,710
  • Geography and Climate: Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District occupies the southeast corner of the state,  covering parts of Pima and Cochise Counties. The district includes more than 20,000  square miles of mostly high desert grassland, featuring mountains and wide valleys.  It includes two-thirds of Tuscon. Elevations run from 3,500 to 6,000 feet with the  highest peaks in the eastern Chiracahua Range. The district’s semi-arid climate  features mild winters and hot summers. In most months, rainfall rarely exceeds one  inch, but July and August are considered the “monsoon season,” which is highlighted  by intense storms that often cause flash floods.
  • Citizenry: nearly 90% of the district’s 723,000 people live in urban areas, most particularly in  the Tucson metropolitan area. Door-to-door canvassing is difficult in the district’s  rural areas, as population centers are widely dispersed. The population is 82% white,  14% Hispanic, 2% black, and 2% Asian. The district’s median household income is  nearly $45,000. Ninety percent of the district’s citizens have a high school diploma,  and 30% have college degrees.
