Conover wins Pima County Attorney race, Heinz ousts Valadez from Supes seat

McSally, Kirkpatrick hold substantial leads as Arizona primary election results appear

U.S. Sen. Martha McSally held an easy lead over challenger Daniel McCarthy as Arizona primary votes were reported Tuesday night. U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick also held a substantial lead in her primary, while Brandon Martin racked up support from 44% to lead the count in the three-way Republican primary to determine her challenger.

In key Pima County races, Laura Conover won the county attorney election with 57%, to 36% for Jonathan Mosher and 7% for Mark Diebold. With no Republicans running, the winner of the Democratic primary will automatically win the November general election.

Among primaries for seats on the Board of Supervisors, Steve Spain won a four-way field with 33%, to 23% for Rhonda Pina, 23% for Vic Williams and 19% for Bill Beard to become the District 1 Republican nominee to replace the retiring Supervisor Ally Miller. Rex Scott easily carried the Democratic primary in the district.

Matt Heinz bested incumbent Supervisor Ramon Valadez in the Democratic primary in District 2, 54-33%, with Richard Hernandez trailing at just 14%.

In the Democratic primary in District 5, to determine who'll compete in November to fill the seat formerly held by the late Richard Elias, Adelita Grijalva won over Consuelo Hernandez, 67-33%.

Both incumbent Supervisors Sharon Bronson (a Democrat) and Steve Christy (a Republican) were holding off challengers Juan Padres and John Backer (respectively), with Bronson holding 59% of the vote and Christy maintaining 66%.

More early ballots are likely to be added the the tallies, which do not yet include ballots cast at the polls or dropped off on Tuesday. But with the vast majority of ballots handed in early and quickly tabulated, there are unlikely to be major swings in the local races that are not close.
