    From AZ State Democratic Party website,


    A native Arizonan, Alexis Tameron was born and raised in the mining town of Superior. She has worked in government, public policy and electoral politics for over a decade, serving in various management capacities at the congressional, state and local level. Most recently, Alexis served as the 2012 statewide Campaign Manager for Dr. Richard Carmona’s U.S. Senate race – an effort that captured more votes statewide than any other Democratic candidate in Arizona history. Alexis also worked for Harry Mitchell’s 2006 congressional campaign, an effort that resulted in the upset victory over six-term incumbent J.D. Hayworth.  She served as Congressman Mitchell’s first District Director before becoming his Chief of Staff in Washington. Alexis graduated from Arizona State University and attended the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University as a Public Policy and International Affairs Fellow. She resides in Tempe and works as a public affairs professional for an Arizona-based technology company.
