Hiral Tipirneni

Dr. Hiral Tipirneni has dedicated her life to serving her community, solving problems, and improving lives. She’s served the Phoenix area for more than 20 years as an emergency room physician, cancer research advocate and, most recently, on the board of directors of the Maricopa Health Foundation, which supports the county’s public health care delivery system.

In Arizona’s 8th congressional district’s special election, Tipirneni polled well going into election day in a district that Trump captured by 21 points. Tipirneni narrowly lost the election and was able to gather 47.4 percent of the vote in a “Safe Republican” district with 49 percent of registered voters identifying as Republican and only 28 percent of voters as Democrat.

Tipirneni plans to run in November’s general election.
