  •  Arizona Attorney General race (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Hey guys, the GOP primary for Attorney General in Arizona is STILL not over yet!

    Democrat Felecia Rotellini, former assistant attorney general of Arizona known for being the state's lead litigator in the 1999 Arthur Andersen case, barely won the Democratic primary over State House minority leader David Lujan, 41.3%-40.8% (that's less than 1,400 votes out of almost 250,000 votes cast).  Fortunately, there doesn't seem to be any bad blood in such a close race.

    Lujan, leader of the Democratic minority in the state House, conceded to Rotellini on Twitter.

    "It was a good fight," Lujan wrote on his Twitter account. "Now, I am going to work as hard as I can to elect Felecia Rotellini as our next attorney general! Congrats Felecia!"

    If that wasn't close enough for you, on the GOP side, it's between superintendent of public instruction Tom Horne and former Maricopa County attorney Andrew Thomas.  And Horne's lead is just at 636 votes out of over 471,000 cast.

    Andrew Thomas is considered a proxy for the odious Sheriff Joe Arpaio, so take it for what it's worth.  Remember, being a shill for Arpaio doesn't necessarily mean Thomas is a weaker candidate, not in this year and state.  So maybe hope that Horne keeps his slim lead in the primary fight, and Rotellini can then hammer him for mismanaging the public schools.
