Arizona Senate Primaries

Sen. John McCain's death has created a vacancy that will be filled by Gov. Doug Ducey, with an announcement not expected until after McCain's funeral on Sunday. The person selected will serve until a special election is held in 2020. The winner of that will complete the final two years of the six-year term.

Arizona's other Senate seat is on the primary ballot today. Sen. Jeff Flake is retiring. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09) is almost certain to be the Democratic nominee. All eyes will be on the Republican primary, where Rep. Martha McSally is hoping to fend off two hardliners, former State Sen. Kelli Ward and former Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Ward previously ran for the U.S. Senate in 2016, where she lost the Republican primary to McCain. McSally has opened up a significant lead in the most recent polls. Assuming she advances, the general election is seen as a toss-up, although Sinema has had a small lead in most pre-primary polls.

Arizona Gubernatorial Primaries

Gov. Ducey is running for re-election. He is expected to win his primary and will face the winner of a three-way Democratic contest. The only recent poll gave Arizona State professor David Garcia a 40% to 25% edge over State Sen. Steve Farley. However, 28% of the respondents were still undecided. Ducey will start out the favorite in this race.

Arizona House Primaries

The state has 9 congressional districts. Reps. McSally (AZ-02) and Sinema (AZ-09) are foregoing re-election to run for the U.S. Senate. McSally's seat is a major target for Democrats this fall. Former Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick is favored in a crowded Democratic primary, while Lea Marquez Peterson appears to have an edge for the GOP. Sinema's seat is likely to stay in Democratic hands; former Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton will be the nominee. There are two districts with longer, but not impossible odds to flip this year. Democrat Tom O'Halleran will be defending a district that voted for Donald Trump by 1% in 2016, one of only 12 districts nationwide that elected a Democrat to Congress while voting for the president. Meanwhile the Scottsdale-area 6th district is a reach for Democrats. Incumbent Rep. David Schweikert won a 4th term by 24% in 2016, but Trump only won by 10%. Schweikert is also under investigation by the House Ethics Committee. Both are unopposed in the primary; we may have more clarity on the race after their respective November opponents are known.

* The Navajo Nation, in northeastern Arizona, observes Daylight Savings Time; the rest of the state does not. Closing time is 10:00 PM Eastern in these Navajo areas. This may affect reporting times for ballots cast in the 1st congressional district.
