Democrat Anita Malik will face Republican incumbent Rep. David Schweikert in November in Arizona's 6th Congressional District in metro Phoenix.

Malik defeated Heather Ross by 2,200 votes in the Aug. 28 primary election according to unofficial results awaiting canvasses by Maricopa County and state officials, while Garrick McFadden trailed in the three-way race.
Schweikert was unopposed in the Republican primary.  He's now serving his fourth term.
Malik has worked in the technology and journalism industries. She advocates for creating well-paying jobs, ensuring low-cost health care coverage and reforms to immigration policies.
Arizona's 6th Congressional District is a predominantly Republican district. It covers northern Phoenix suburbs including Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek and Fountain Hills.
