Candidates & Coffee with Representative Randy Friese

We sat down with Dr. Randy Friese, Representative from Arizona District 9 at Caffe Luce in his home district in Tucson, AZ! He is the trauma surgeon who took care of Gabby Giffords after she was shot as well as the other victims of the mass shooting in 2011. This flipped a switch for him and brought him to the political area. We spoke about how he balances his two careers, education funding for Arizona, ratifying the ERA, and much more!
