How Native Americans Beat the Kochs in ‘America’s Most Competitive’ Congressional District
Cook, Rothenburg and other pundits had labeled Arizona Congressional District 1 as one of the most competitive in America, and the Koch Brothers and others poured in nearly $10 million to affect the outcome. But when the dust settled early Wednesday morning, Ann Kirkpatrick had comfortably retained her seat, trouncing state House Speaker Andy Tobin by nearly 9,000 votes.
This story is told from the perspective of Navajo County. Though it is almost exactly the size of Massachusetts, it is a relatively small part of the district -- which is actually the largest district in the U.S. that is not an entire state. The county takes in portions of the Apache reservations in the south (the size of Connecticut) and stretches into the Navajo Nation (the size of West Virginia) in the north. Between them are off-Reservation towns, with some infused with Mormon TEA Party craziness. Surrounded by the Navajo Nation is the Hopi Reservation, the size of Delaware.
