Barber Reax: Heinz Says He'll Stay in CD2 Race

Posted By on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 3:05 PM

State Rep. Matt Heinz says he plans to continue running for Congress, even though Ron Barber, the former Giffords' aide, announced today that he plans to run in Congressional District 2 in the fall.

"My plans have not changed," Heinz tells The Range. "It's an open seat in CD2. We always expected a large field of candidates. … We always knew it was going to be a competitive race and we look forward to a robust and healthy and very positive discussion with the voters of CD2."

Heinz, who stepped away from running in the special election to determine who will complete Gabrielle Giffords' term in Congressional District 8 to allow Barber to avoid a primary, says his endorsement of Barber in the CD8 race still stands.

"The priority in the CD8 special election is to maintain Democratic control of the seat," Heinz says.
