Arizona Primary

| 0 Comments
Arizona had its primary election yesterday.  Mark Brnovich won the Republican nomination for Attorney General, defeating incumbent Tom Horne, Alia Beard Rau reports for the Arizona Republic.

I lauded Horne on this blog for moving forward with a "fast track" application for Arizona's capital cases in federal habeas corpus (here and here), but unfortunately the follow-through has been lacking.  I expect Brnovich to take up the fight if he wins the general election.  (He and I serve together on the Federalist Society's Criminal Law Practice Group Executive Committee, BTW.)

The general election is not a foregone conclusion, though.  The race was close last time, the Democratic nominee had no primary opponent, and she has a formidable warchest.

In the Governor's race Doug Doucey has taken the Republican nomination.  I haven't followed that race, but Doucey has endorsements from people whose judgment I respect.  His campaign website is nearly devoid of useful information on his positions, as most campaign websites are these days.
