My background

Hi John! My name is Alia Kapasi — and I’m Kirsten’s 2024 campaign manager.  I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. I’m from South Carolina, and I’ve cared about politics and building a better world my whole life. I also like The West Wing, traveling, and long walks on the beach (kidding! Mos…

Ciscomani is going to have to answer for this

John,   My opponent has a lot he needs to answer for on the campaign trail.  The Inflation Reduction Act — which Democrats passed in 2022 — invests over $150 billion into clean energy and transportation projects. In Arizona, that money is lowering energy costs, boosting the economy, and creating tho…

November might be over, but...

We’re still feeling thankful!Hi John,   We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you on behalf of Kirsten and the whole Engel for Arizona team. With your support, we hit our November fundraising goal.  Not only will this help us unseat Juan Ciscomani and take back Democratic control of the House…

Us: 😱

John,  We’ve known Juan Ciscomani’s true colors since we ran against him last cycle. He’s a MAGA puppet trying to convince voters he is a moderate.  But even we’ve been surprised by some of his votes in Congress this year.  He voted for national abortion restrictions. He voted against good-paying cl…

My daughter’s surprise

John,  Yesterday was my birthday — and as a surprise present, my daughter reached out to my supporters to see if you would help our campaign hit our November fundraising goal.  Your generosity yesterday was a wonderful gift and helped our campaign make up for the momentum we lost over the holiday. T…

John,   As a mom and a teacher, one of the most important things I’ve learned is to always do my homework.  It’s what I was known for in the Arizona legislature — and exactly what I’ll do in Congress.  When my opponent votes against reproductive care, senior programs, and clean energy projects for A…

We’re falling short of our November goal

John,   Thanksgiving is a day for family, food, and gratitude. It’s about spending time together — around the dinner table, in the kitchen, or falling into the couch.  We don’t want to spend the holiday asking you for money; we know you probably don’t want to hear it. But we’re falling behind on our…

It's time to end Citizens United

John,  Wealthy donors shouldn’t be able to buy themselves a seat in Congress. Our democracy is founded on the principle of we the people, not we the super PACs.  But legislative attacks and court decisions over the last decade have broken our campaign finance system.  Thirteen years ago, the Supreme…

How bad is Juan Ciscomani?

Oh, let us count the ways… Hi John,  Kirsten Engel’s Republican opponent, Juan Ciscomani, tries to pretend he’s a bipartisan champion. But when he votes in Congress, his real allegiances become clear.  Since taking office, Ciscomani has voted to: 🩺 Repeal a Department of Defense policy that protects…

Reaching out personally, John

Hi John,  I'm excited to share that I am once again running to represent Arizona's sixth district in Congress!   I'm in this race to stand up for our rights, our environment, and our working families.

We can flip this House seat blue

Hi John — it’s Jevin Hodge.  Last year, I ran for Congress in one of the toughest races in our state. Political experts and national organizations counted us out — but thanks to incredible grassroots support, we came within 1% of flipping AZ-01 blue.  It was the smallest voting margin in Arizona. …

My takeaways from Election Day

Friend,   We’re one week past Election Day, and the dust is settling. The results from last Tuesday give us key insights for next year. Here’s the biggest takeaway: people want abortion rights.  In Kentucky, Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, abortion rights won. Democrats who were unapologetically p…

Ciscomani is going after Tribal lands

Friend, Juan Ciscomani is at it again.  This time, he’s teaming up with MAGA extremists to allow Big Oil to drill, mine, and pollute Tribal cultural lands.  In June, the Biden Administration protected the Chaco Culture National Historical Park from future leasing and mining claims. This land has dee…

Friend,   I’ve said from the start that every single person on this campaign is important. Well, every single person — and canine. We just got our first shipment of Team Engel shirts, and Zeus was a very helpful model.

Hi friend, Happy Election Day! If you haven’t voted yet, it’s not too late. You can find your nearest polling place here. Though it’s an off-year, there are still plenty of local issues on which to make your voice heard.

Why I want to say thank you

Friend,   I don’t want to take too much of your time — but I do want to say thank you. This has been a people-powered campaign from the beginning. I know how critical your grassroots support is, and I never take it for granted. The holiday season can make this a tough fundraising quarter, so we real…

this shouldn’t be frightening

I’m spooked, friend.   Right now, most of us are getting ready for Halloween — what’s supposed to be the scariest night of the year. But seeing what’s been happening in Congress over the last month has been plenty scary for me.   First, extremist Republicans drove our government to the point of shut…

Don’t take our word for it

Friend, we told you Ciscomani wasn't a moderate.   Not only did he vote for Jim Jordan; he voted for him three different times, when the actual moderates were defecting and voting against him. And this morning, he voted to confirm Mike Johnson, an anti-abortion election denier who wants to end Socia…

Of course he voted for Jim Jordan - AGAIN

Friend,  Jim Jordan has had a rough time trying to become House speaker — somehow getting fewer Republican votes on his second try than his first.  It’s not shocking: Jordan is a far-right extremist who sought to overturn the 2020 election and whose views and values are out of step with everyday Ame…

Why lie, Ciscomani?

Friend,  Kirsten’s opponent, Juan Ciscomani, doesn’t want voters to know his real stance on abortion.  When asked in interviews, he tries to dodge the question (literally running away from it in 2022) or says he believes it’s a state issue.  But when it comes time to vote in the House, his anti-choi…

We have to fight back

Hi friend, It’s no secret: our opponent is Kevin McCarthy’s right-hand man. Last year, Kevin McCarthy’s PAC spent over 3 million dollars trying to defeat Kirsten and elect Juan Ciscomani — over half of the total spending against our campaign.  This year, we’re up against the same.
