Kyrsten Sinema wins Democratic primary election for US Senate seat

Martha McSally introduced by campaign leader Erin Miller greets her supporters on election night after winning the Republican primary for

In recent weeks, she was seen campaigning with Mike Cernovich, the alt-right blogger and conspiracy theorist who was most well-known for igniting the flame behind Pizzagate.

"She has been as moderate as she can be", Mr Khalaf said.

Democrats must hold on to Sen. Jeff Flake, who is retiring. The party had been deeply anxious that former state senator Kelli Ward would win the primary, after a weird campaign in which she repeatedly disparaged a dying Sen.

McSally and Sinema have both largely ended campaigning until after McCain's body leaves the state on Thursday.

In a statement, Sinema mentioned McCain, who was known for bucking his party.

"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. John McCain, whose death on Saturday came after election officials estimated most voters had already cast early ballots in the race. "It's hard to celebrate anything this week", she said. The commercial contrasts imagery of McSally in uniform with footage of Sinema protesting against the Iraq war in a pink tutu. That means McSally could come out on top even if a majority of Republicans split their vote between the more right-leaning Ward and Arpaio. "It's a choice between a doer and a talker, between a patriot and a protester".

John Goodman Says The Conners Will Kill Off Roseanne
Many people have spoken about the new direction the show will take and how The Conners will survive without Roseanne Barr. Goodman revealed how the departure of the main character will be handled when the sitcom returns.

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.

The primary also is expected to cement a heavyweight Senate matchup in November pitting Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson against two-term Republican Gov. Rick Scott. 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.

Meanwhile, in Florida, the gubernatorial race is one to watch in particular, as there are multiple candidates from both the Republican and the Democratic Parties. The seat is considered a key pickup for Democrats in their bid to take control of the chamber, meaning the general election will be among the closest-watched Senate races in the nation between now and November. Television ads have already bombarded Arizonans throughout the summer months, and a competitive general election is likely to draw in millions of dollars in outside spending. 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. The outcome guarantees Arizona will elect its first female senator in November.

McSally boasts she has been invited to the White House for movie screenings, and many of Ward's events feature life-sized cardboard cutouts of Trump.

McSally calls suggestions that she's changed on Trump - whom she criticized while running for re-election during 2016 in a district that voted for Hillary Clinton - "a false narrative". On Monday, as the political world mourned McCain's death from cancer, Ward tweeted that political correctness was "a cancer".

A Democratic victory in the Senate race could suggest the state could be up for grabs in 2020.
