Williams Mayor Drops Out Of Race For Arizona's First Congressional Seat

Williams Mayor John W. Moore

John W. Moore, Congressional candidate for Arizona’s District 1, has announced he is suspending his campaign because of emerging demands the Covid 19 virus is placing upon him as Mayor of Williams.

In a statement, Moore said with the coronavirus gaining strength throughout the nation, especially right here in Coconino County, and with a major Interstate in our front yard Williams finds itself in the crossroads of this Pandemic. He said he believes his constituents deserve to have a Mayor who is not distracted by a campaign and is devoting his full attention to their needs during this emergency.

Democrat Tom O'Halleran currently holds the first congressional seat in Arizona.
