As soon as Senator Jeff Flake announced he would not seek re-election, the doors to the Arizona Senate were wide open.
On the Republican side, former State Senator Dr. Kelli Ward had already planned on taking on Flake in the primary. She had a shot at winning.
Then Tucson area Congresswoman Martha McSally entered the Republican race as did former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The race become somewhat of a dogfight, which played into McSally's combat proven strengths.
The candidates battled over how much they each supported Trump.
In the end, it's McSally who will run as the Republican, winning 54 percent of the primary campaign. She ran a very solid campaign both attacking Dr. Ward while shoring up her own conservative, pro-Trump credentials.
McSally will now take on another Congresswoman, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema. Political analysts expect this to be a hard fought race as Democrats are hoping to flip the current Republican held seat.
Millions will be spent from now until November 6th. And a Presidential visit is expected here as well prior to the national mid-term election.
