TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) _ Two Democratic candidates in a southern Arizona congressional race are being denied access to a voter list by their own party.
The Arizona Daily Star on Friday reported state Democratic Party Director Luis Heredia has chosen not to release the data to Amanda Aguirre and Manny Arreguin, saying their campaigns ``are not truly reflective'' of Democrats.
Both candidates are challenging Rep. Raul Grijalva in the Congressional District 3 primary. Heredia says he questions why the two are running against an incumbent endorsed by President Obama.
A spokesman for Grijalva's campaign says the congressman had nothing to do with the decision.
Voter lists are used to obtain and verify petition signatures and for addressing campaign mailing.
Both candidates say they will try to get the list another way.
