A Tucson surgeon is running for Congress in Arizona's open second congressional district, where the incumbent, Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, is retiring.

Doctor Douglas Lowell is running in the Republican primary.

Lowell describes himself as a fourth generation rancher, whose parents were once kidnapped and held hostage by a man he describes as an "illegal immigrant."

In a campaign video Lowell promises to complete the border wall, support the second amendment, and fight for "America First" policies.

Despite his medical background, Lowell's campaign announcement makes no mention of the coronavirus pandemic that has killed over 600,000 Americans.
