    After redistricting in 2010, most of the 5th's territory became the 9th district, while the 5th included most of the territory in the old 6th district.
    Mitchell represented the 5th district prior to redistricting.

    Sinema represents the 9th district.

    And the googles says Flake represented the 6th district.

      current AZ-05 is made up of portions of the old AZ-05 and AZ-06.  It's gets a little confusing but it's not a detail I think about much.  When you think about it, the only thing that stays the same after re-districting are the numbers.  It's not always accurate to identify a district with a member, especially when they jump to a different district entirely because they see a better chance to win.

      There is no existence without doubt.
