Flake swipes at Trump over McSally support

U.S. Senate candidate and U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., speaks to supporters after her primary election victory, Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018, in Tempe, Ariz.

Will Martha McSally, Joe Arpaio, or Kelli Ward win the three-way Arizona Senate primary?

McCain's death narrowed the number of Republican-held seats in the 100-member US Senate to 50, with Democrats controlling 49. Beyond the raw vote totals, the GOP count also was a larger share of its last presidential election turnout.

The November battle between progressives and conservative Trump Republicans will be closely watched by both parties for clues about the mood of voters and messaging ahead of 2020, when Trump could be seeking re-election against a liberal Democrat.

CNN views more than half of Arizona's congressional districts as in play this year, with the 2nd District vacated by McSally as the most likely to flip. Will President Trump's favorite, Ron DeSantis, win the Florida Republican nomination for governor?

Trump yesterday reiterated his support for DeSantis in a tweet. Trump has yet to endorse a candidate in the race, having positive things to say about all three of them. She has also refused to criticize the Trump-Pence administration's efforts to ban qualified transgender service members from the military and voted for an amendment to ban transition-related health care for service members.

The GOP total came to nearly 35 percent of what Trump won in Florida in 2016. Democrat David Garcia, an Arizona State University professor, is focusing on his experience in the area, but he faces tough challengers from State Sen.

Arpaio, a former six-term sheriff of Maricopa County who'd never lost a GOP primary, was in third place. McSally drew criticism from McCain's family when she did not mention his name in the signing of the recent defense bill, which was named after McCain.

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema will face Congresswoman Martha McSally in the general election. Sinema announced that she was pausing her campaign Wednesday and Thursday, when McCain's body will lie in Arizona's Capitol.

About 300,000 were already in the camps in Bangladesh's Cox's Bazar district and the latest arrivals pushed numbers to one million.

If those margins hold up when the precincts fully report, it looks like Arizona will remain a red state in November - perhaps especially with McSally leading the ballot.

With only token opposition in her primary, Sinema, a 42-year-old Tucson native, has been free to run essentially a general election campaign for months, positioning herself as an independent voice and eschewing attacks on Trump by name.

Sinema, 42, won her primary with an overwhelming 80.5 percent of the vote.

Gov. Rick Scott, a close political ally of Trump, is expected to coast through his primary bid for Senate, setting up a showdown with Democratic Sen.

Rep. McSally has long opposed marriage equality and consistently supported discriminatory, anti-LGBTQ policies and proposals while in Congress, including an amendment that would allow discrimination against LGBTQ people by taxpayer-funded organizations. While Arizonans largely favour robust border security, Mr Trump's plan for a wall on the Mexico border - a hard border is a top item for Republicans - is a deal-breaker for Latinos.

The Democratic gubernatorial field is the most crowded since 1978, the year Bob Graham eventually won the governor's race.

Several other candidates were also competing for the nomination, including former Miami Beach mayor Philip Levine, who, along with Graham, outspent Gillum. The Arizona congresswoman has said in multiple interviews that her bisexuality has made her a better leader due to the adversity she faced while growing up. "It's gotten out of hand".

Democrats are hoping the GOP electorate's rightward march and embrace of outsiders result in a runoff win for Tulsa mortgage company owner Kevin Stitt over former Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett.
