Arizona special election features Debbie Lesko, Hiral Tipirneni: What to know about the race

Republican Debbie Lesko, a former state lawmaker, is facing off with Democrat Dr. Hiral Tipirneni, a cancer research advocate, to represent the district.

At the time, more than 30,000 golf carts were registered in Maricopa County, Arizona, and up to 50 percent of households in Sun City, a large retirement community, used a golf cart, according to the Arizona Republic.

Health care: Voters in the district, particularly senior citizens, are concerned about health care, including the future of Medicare and the state's Medicaid program, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS).

Tipirneni’s platform includes health care reform, including expanding Medicare to a younger consumer base.

Drew Anderson, senior communications adviser for the Arizona Democratic Party, told Fox News that voters are “simply fed up” with Republicans’ “chaotic tactics to rip away their health care opportunities, including access to Medicare and Arizona's AHCCCS."
