Former Arizona State quarterback Andrew Walter announced he's running for congress.
"I've been to many different places over the years, but Arizona will always be my home," Walter said in a message on his web site, andrewwalter2014.com. "I want to take the hard work and dedication the Walter name is known for and make a difference in Washington."
Walter would run for Arizona's ninth congressional district, which is in Maricopa County and includes Tempe but also parts of Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Mesa and Chandler.
Walter was drafted 69th by the Oakland Raiders in the 2005 NFL Draft. He returned to Arizona State to pursue an MBA at age 27 and founded Andrew Walter Holdings, a business lending firm.
