CD6 Republican challenger Winn makes pitch to primary voters

Republican congressional candidate Kathleen Winn, who hopes to unseat U.S. Rep. Juan Ciscomani in the July 30 GOP primary, made her case to voters in a forum Wednesday night.

Winn, who is making her second run against Ciscomani in Southern Arizona’s CD6, said she was a conservative alternative to the Republican representative. In 2022, she got 19 percent of the vote in a five-way primary that saw Ciscomani prevail with 44 percent.

“His voting record has him be a bipartisan moderate, which he proudly has been touting,” said Winn, who has previously worked for the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and hosted a local radio show about politics. “He votes more with the Democrats than he does with the Republicans.”

Ciscomani, who declined to participate in the Clean Elections/Arizona Media Association event, was recently named the most bipartisan member of Congress in Arizona. He ranked 45 among the 435 members that make up the U.S. House of Representatives.
