Republican Wins Arizona Seat Despite Tough Fight From Democrat
Republican Debbie Lesko won the race for Arizona's 8th congressional district Tuesday, keeping Democrats from another upset victory.
Republican Debbie Lesko won a special election for an Arizona House seat Tuesday. She'll replace former Rep. Trent Franks, who resigned late last year amid sexual misconduct allegations.
Lesko bested Democratic candidate Hiral Tipirneni, who was hoping to ride the coattails of Democratic upsets in Alabama and Pennsylvania. She narrowed the gap, though — Lesko won by about six points, according to The Associated Press. President Donald Trump won the district by 21 points in 2016.
Lesko is a former Arizona state senator. She's a proponent of Republican tax cuts and the president's plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
