Primary Elections Held in Arizona and Florida

John McCain's death shadows Republican primary in Arizona

McSally, a former fighter pilot, had been favored to prevail over the two conservatives who have split the anti-establishment vote. Yet if Democrats lose Nelson's seat in Florida, their already narrow path to the Senate majority becomes virtually nonexistent.

Perhaps no other race in the country demonstrates the competing strains on the modern Republican Party than the three-way GOP primary for the Senate seat now held by the retiring Jeff Flake, who joined McCain as one of Trump's most outspoken GOP critics.

Cindy McCain, wife of the late Republican U.S. Senator John McCain, has emerged as one of the more prominent names of possible appointees to succeed him, along with several former members of Arizona's congressional delegation.

All three Republicans had distanced themselves from McCain, who frequently feuded with Trump, and Ward suggested that his family's announcement on Friday that he was stopping medical treatment was timed to hurt her campaign.

On immigration, for example, McSally responded to Ward and Arpaio's conservative views by pulling her support for a moderate immigration bill in Congress in favor of a more conservative plan.

Dr Tipirneni, 50, who was born in Mumbai but came to the United States at the age of three, shot to prominence when, in a special election in April to replace a Republican who resigned after a scandal, she contested as a complete unknown but came very close to defeating her Republican rival Ms Debbie Lesko, whom she will face again in November.

Ms McSally beat Ms Kelli Ward, a former senator, and Mr Joe Arpaio, a former county sheriff. But 2018 would be a disastrous year for the GOP to end the streak, with partisan control of the Senate likely to hang in the balance.

"Hollywood Sinema, I like to say that - Sinema with a 'C, '" she said.

Trump has not endorsed any of the three Republicans.

McSally and Sinema both want the seat being vacated by Sen.

Trump carried Florida by just over 1 percentage point in 2016. She'll face off with the victor of a seven-way Democratic primary in November.

The parties have selected their candidates to vie for Sen.

Sinema was long favored to win the primary and is seen as a competitive Democratic candidate in a general election that could hinge on how voters feel about Trump and his policies.

Flake's tweet included a photo of a $100 check that he and his wife wrote to Doug Jones, the Democrat who prevailed in the Alabama special election, over Republican Roy Moore.

Polls have shown a close race. The good news for the GOP is that Governor Jaleel White, a Republican like Bobby Jindal, has chose to appoint a man who will vote with Donald Trump.

On the Democratic side, liberal champion Andrew Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, bested a crowded field that included establishment favorite Gwen Graham, the former congresswoman and daughter of Florida political icon Bob Graham.

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.

He'll take on Democratic former state Attorney General Drew Edmondson.
