Meet the Candidates:

Tanya Wheeless
Candidate for U.S. Congress
Tanya Conteras Wheeless launched her campaign for the U.S. Congress in August 2021. She is a proven leader with a track record of bringing people together to solve problems. Her vast professional experience includes lawyer, business association CEO, sports executive with the Phoenix Suns, and small business owner.

A valley native, she was born to teen parents and is the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants. Driven by her desire to create a better life for herself, Tanya worked from the time she was 14. She put herself through Arizona State University, becoming the first person in her family to graduate from college. She went on to graduate from ASU Law with distinction, earning a job at one of the nation’s top law firms. 

Now, Tanya is ready to bring her experience and thoughtful leadership to Congress. She believes in the promise of the American dream and will fight to preserve it. She will embrace policies that empower people, not the government. And, she will always put Arizona first. 

Tanya lives in Tempe with her husband Steve, an attorney and former F-16 pilot in the U.S. They have three wonderful children and two adorable dogs.
