Arizona's 7th congressional district is a congressional district located in the U.S. state of Arizona. It includes much of inner Phoenix, as well as the eastern portion of Glendale. It is currently represented by Democrat Ruben Gallego.
Arizona picked up a seventh district after the 2000 census. Situated in the southwestern part of the state, it included all of Yuma County and parts of La Paz, Maricopa, Pima, Pinal, and Santa Cruz counties. For all intents and purposes, it was the successor to the 2nd District--the former seat of longtime congressman Mo Udall.
The district was larger than Rhode Island, Delaware, Hawaii, Connecticut and New Jersey combined. It includes 300 miles of the U.S. border with Mexico. It was home to seven sovereign Native American nations: the Ak-Chin Indian Community, Cocopah, Colorado River Indian Tribes, Gila River Indian Community, Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Quechan, and Tohono O'odham.
