PHOENIX (AP) — State Sen. Michele Reagan has won the Republican primary for secretary of state.

Reagan cruised to victory in a three-way race for the GOP nomination with state Rep. Justin Pierce and businessman Will Cardon. Gov. Jan Brewer endorsed Reagan.

The secretary of state is Arizona's top elections officer and also becomes governor if there's a midterm vacancy in that office.

She will face former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard in the general election.
