The race for Arizona House Congressional District (CD) Six has generated a lot of attention this election cycle.

Rated a toss-up by both the Cook Political Report and Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, Dr. Hiral Tipirneni is running a well-funded race against the ethically embattled David Schweikert.

In her latest ad called “Oath Contrast,” Dr. Tipirneni tells the people, that unlike Mr. Schweikert, she will fulfill her oath to serve them.

The ad immediately attacks Schweikert for:

  • Being bought and paid for by the insurance industry.
  • Voting to allow insurers to charge seniors more for their medical care.
  • Supporting the removal of pre-existing condition protections for people with health problems.

The ad concludes with Dr. Tipirneni stating:

“As a doctor, I took an oath to protect my patients. But I never thought I would have to protect them from their own Congressman. In Congress, I’ll always put your health care first.”

The people in CD Six seem to have a better choice with Dr. Tipirneni than the current incumbent who was found to be in violation of 11 House Ethical Violations.

This should be more apparent to CD Six’s residents with the revelation, as Ronald Hansen of AZ Central reported, Mr. Schweikert, like Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar in their districts, decided not to debate his opponent.

A candidate that does not feel the people should hear him express his governing views for the next two years should not receive his constituent’s support at the ballot box.

Election Day is in ten days.
