It doesn’t look like Tom O’Halleran will be getting the support of his former primary challenger, Eva Putzova, any time soon.

Putzova won more than 41% of the vote in the Democrat primary, including winning Coconino County which is home to one of AZ-01’s largest cities, Flagstaff.

When Putzova learned O’Halleran was investing in mining companies which had abandoned more than 75 uranium mines on the Navajo Nation, Putzova responded in a tweet, “why am I not surprised.” In a follow-up tweet Putzova responded again, “Sorry, #AZ01, maybe next time.”

NRCC Comment: “Tom O’Halleran owes his constituents an explanation as to why he’s investing in companies that abandoned uranium mines on the Navajo Nation, part of the very district he represents.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Torunn Sinclair
