With special elections in Congressional District 8 in April and June, and regular 2012 elections in August and November, it's getting complicated to track the candidates.

In an attempt to make the candidate pool easier to digest, AZPM has compiled a list of who's running in the congressional races. We'll keep it updated as things change throughout the election season
