Lesko Resigns, Constituents Left Without Representation

Arizona State Sen. Debbie Lesko resigned her seat in the Arizona Legislature on the first day of the legislative session leaving her constituents without representation. Lesko resigned in order to run for Congress.

Former fellow Senator Steve Montenegro resigned his seat before the beginning of the session to ensure that his constituents would have full representation.

Both Montenegro and Lesko are running to replace Congressman Trent Franks, who resigned in December amid complaints from former staffers who claimed he asked them to carry a baby as a surrogate for him and his wife.

Now the precinct committeemen in LD21 will have to choose a replacement for Lesko.
