Election update: Ferrara loses bid to become first radiologist elected to Congress

Interventional radiologist and 25-year Navy veteran Steve Ferrara, MD, lost his race against former Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton to represent Arizona’s 9th Congressional District. Ferrara, running as a Republican, was working to become the first radiologist elected to Congress.

The seat was vacated when U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema chose to run for the U.S. Senate in the 2018 election. As of Wednesday, Nov. 7, Sinema’s race has not officially been called, but her opponent, Martha McSally, is in the lead.
