GOP holds on to House seat in Arizona


Pro-life Republican Debbie Lesko won the special election in Arizona’s 8th District. 

Republican Debbie Lesko defeated Democrat Hiral Tipirneni in the election to fill a vacant congressional seat that spans the west Phoenix area, but her relatively narrow victory margin Tuesday will do little to calm Republicans nervous about the midterm races.

Unofficial results from early balloting showed Lesko comfortably ahead of Tipirneni, her Democratic opponent, though well short of the lopsided results when President Donald Trump and former Republican Rep. Trent Franks carried the district two years ago.
