PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Senate President Andy Biggs won’t have to fend off a challenge from former Arizona House Speaker Kirk Adams as he tries to win the Republican primary in the 5th Congressional District.

Adams announced Monday that he’s sticking with his current job as chief of staff for Gov. Doug Ducey. He says he can think of no work he’d rather be doing.

Rep. Matt Salmon announced last week that he won’t seek re-election and immediately endorsed Biggs.

Adams did not endorse Biggs, saying he’s joining fellow voters in looking for a candidate who can lead and wield influence on major issues facing the nation.

Several other prominent politicians in the heavily Republican district in the eastern Phoenix suburbs are considering jumping into the primary race.
