Days After McCain's Death, Arizonans Head To Polls In State Primary

Days After McCain's Death, Arizonans Head To Polls In State Primary”

"Martha McSally, running in the Arizona Primary for U.S. Senate, was endorsed by rejected Senator Jeff Flake....and turned it down - a first!" "How did you guys like those side-by-side outfits?" she said, drawing laughs.

"Congresswoman McSally has spent this long, nasty intra-party fight burning her campaign's resources and squandering her credibility with the voters who will decide this election", said David Bergstein, a spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

"The entire campaign has been defined by the effort to show who is the better, more enthusiastic supporter of the president", said Stan Barnes, a veteran Republican strategist in Arizona.

Dr Tipirneni, 50, who was born in Mumbai but came to the United States at the age of three, shot to prominence when, in a special election in April to replace a Republican who resigned after a scandal, she contested as a complete unknown but came very close to defeating her Republican rival Ms Debbie Lesko, whom she will face again in November. The CBS poll showed Sinema beating McSally, 41 percent to 34 percent. "Between a patriot and a protester".

Arpaio, 86, served as sheriff of Maricopa County from 1993 to 2017, when he was convicted of criminal contempt of court for refusing to stop detaining suspected illegal immigrants.

McCain's seat will be filled by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey in an appointment made after the senator's funeral; there will then be a special election on the 2020 ballot to fill the remainder of McCain's term. In the state's 9th Congressional District, Steve Ferrara, the former Navy chief medical officer, won the GOP nomination to face Greg Stanton, Phoenix's Democratic former mayor.

Martha McSally beat back two conservative hardliners on Tuesday night, securing the Republican nomination in the state's hotly contested upcoming Senate race. Trump won Democratic Rep. Tom O'Halleran's 1st District by 1 point, and Republicans have a crowded primary to see who will face him. While her centrist approach and Blue Dog Democrat status may not appeal to the state's voters who are far to the left, her willingness to be bipartisan could curry favor among the state's large crop of independent voters.

History is on McSally's side, as Arizona has not elected a Democratic senator since the late 1980s.

In a state whose electoral votes went to Trump, the Republican nominee could use voters' support for the president to their advantage.

They all ran towards President Donald Trump, in a sign of his hold over Republican voters. Ward, who also aligned herself to Trump, also claimed that McCain's announcement that he was stopping cancer treatment was timed in order to hurt her chances at winning the primary. "We encourage any voter who wants to cast their ballot to be in line at any of your designated polling places by 7 p.m. and their vote will be counted". After his family announced McCain was ending medical treatment last week, Ward speculated in a deleted Facebook post that the move was created to hurt her campaign. Sinema announced that she was pausing her campaign Wednesday and Thursday, when McCain's body will lie in Arizona's Capitol. Bill Clinton was the last Democratic presidential nominee to carry Arizona in 1996.

Democrats already have nominated Drew Edmondson, a former state attorney general, and national Democrats believe he has the profile to wage a competitive race against Stitt.
