Navajo Nation VP running for Congress in Arizona
The Navajo Nation’s Vice President announced Tuesday he’s joining the race to represent much of northeastern and central Arizona in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Arizona’s newly redrawn Congressional District 2 covers several tribal nations including Republican candidate Myron Lizer’s own, the Navajo Nation.
🚨 I’m announcing my candidacy in running for the newly redrawn U.S Congressional District 2 seat of Arizona. I pray that you will join me, as I pursue this journey of becoming a Representative on the Hill, in Washington DC. May God bless you, from my family to yours.

Lizer said broken promises from the federal government along with a lack of financial investment has limited the peoples’ interest.
He has represented the Nation Nation since 2019 as its vice president and previously worked in retail management, according to the nation's Office of the President and Vice President.
