2008

In 2008, Arizona's 3rd Congressional seat was contested by Republican John Shadegg, Democrat Bob Lord, Libertarian Michael Shoen and Independents Annie Loyd, Steve May, and Edwin Winkler.

On February 11, 2008, incumbent Shadegg announced he would not run for an eighth term, saying that he wanted to "seek a new challenge in a different venue to advance the cause of freedom." However, on February 21, 2008, Shadegg retracted the statement and announced he would seek reelection.[1] Over 140 Republicans in Congress had signed a letter asking Shadegg to keep his seat.[2] Although it was speculated that he would run for the United States Senate if John McCain were to become president,[3] Shadegg had expressed his intention to leave public life and return to the private sector[2] before changing his mind.

The race was covered in the East Valley Tribune and showed a 27% independent voter population and noted increased registration of independents in a district of 600,000 people cutting across urban Phoenix into rural parts of northern Maricopa County. The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) reported that, as of December 31, 2007, Shadegg had raised over $1,000,000, Lord over $600,000, and Loyd $26,000. May and Winkler had not reported any fundraising.[4][5]

Incumbent John Shadegg held his seat based on unofficial returns from the Secretary of State, with 100.0% of precincts reporting.[1]
