Combat-veteran, small business owner, and longtime Republican activist Sergio Arellano has filed his paperwork and is a candidate for State Representative in Arizona’s 2nd Legislative District.
Arellano is well known by conservative activists thanks to his more than 13 years of work for conservative causes and candidates. Arellano narrowly lost a race for State GOP Chairman in 2021 and has helped lead GOP efforts on Hispanic, Veterans, and Small Business engagement.
“I have fought for my country overseas and here at home in Arizona, fighting for liberty in all of its forms,” said Arellano in kicking off his campaign, “and I look forward to taking my message of opportunity for all to the voters of District Two.”
“Republicans lost a critical House seat in our district in 2022 and winning that seat is key to retaining and expanding our GOP majority in the Legislature.” said Arellano, “So when I was asked to consider running I took the idea very seriously and did my research on our district and what we could expect in 2024. There is no doubt that we can win this seat with the right candidate, so I’m all in and look forward to working with our party activists and concerned citizens to win in 2024.”
Arellano has a long track record of working for limited government, lower taxes, school choice, election integrity, 2nd Amendment rights, secure borders, and traditional family values. Sergio is a father of four, has served on a school board, and knows that many of the most important fights in Arizona’s immediate future deal with our kids.
Arellano is an Army combat veteran with more than 10 years of service. He ultimately retired due to combat sustained injuries and, as an alumni of the Wounded Warrior project, went to work helping other injured veterans in a variety of ways.
Sergio has spent years helping GOP candidates win elections through aggressive grassroots voter contact and is experienced in delivering that pro-freedom message as well. He served as the State Director for the Republican National Committee with an emphasis on Hispanic outreach here in Arizona, served as a surrogate for Spanish speaking media and international media for the RNC and the Arizona GOP, and he had the distinct honor of being named one of 22 Latinos from around the nation who served as a member of President Trump’s National Latino Advisory Board.
“This is a critical district and one of Arizona’s most competitive districts. Democrats are trying to capture the State Legislature so that they can roll back school choice and constitutional liberties, while raising taxes, spiking inflation, and killing the jobs we need.” said Arellano. “That is why we are going to focus on engaging with the voters we need to win while raising the $150-200,000 we believe it will take to win the general election next November.”
