In 2020 Greg Stanton won his district easily, with more than 60% of the vote against Republican Dave Giles.

But as his first reelection campaign draws nearer in 2022, Stanton finds himself in the crosshairs of national Republican strategists. Why? The answer can be summed up in one word: redistricting.
