Indigenous candidates running in primary

Four states: Arizona, Kansas, Washington, and Michigan have Indigenous candidates


August 2, 2022

It was a quiet month in July for Indigenous candidates running for state and national office. But that changes with the Aug. 2 primary elections. Arizona, Kansas, Washington, and Michigan all have Indigenous candidates.

There are five candidates running for office in Arizona and there are six candidates running in Washington.

The fifth state holding a primary election Tuesday is Missouri, so far the list compiled by ICT does not list an Indigenous candidate. If there is a candidate missing, please email political correspondent, Pauly Denetcaw, at to add the names of any past or present candidates.
