Tucson businessman David Crowe Robles announced Wednesday that he plans to run for Congress in Arizona’s new Congressional District 3, where he will take on five-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva in the August Democratic primary.
Crowe Robles, 45, president and CEO of Tucson Embedded Systems, a firm that specializes in developing hardware and software for the aerospace, defense and commercial industries, is a political newcomer who also considered running for the Senate seat held by Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., who is retiring.
The district includes parts of Tucson, as well as Yuma, the Tohono O’odham Reservation, and some far southwest suburbs of Phoenix, and runs mostly along the southwestern border of Arizona. It includes most of the old 7th Congressional District, Grijalva’s current district.
