Populist Republican Blake Masters Outraises State Attorney General in Hot Arizona Senate Primary
Populist Republican and investor Blake Masters has outraised his competitors for the GOP’s nomination for US Senator in Arizona, in a development likely to draw attention to the state’s primary.
Masters, a friend of Peter Thiel, raised more than a million dollars in the third quarter of 2021. Mark Brnovich, Arizona’s Attorney General, raised almost $600,000, lagging behind Masters.

Money isn’t everything in politics, but it’s a proxy for excitement. And, uh, fundraising ability ????????????
Masters has attracted interest as a candidate for invoking concerns typical Republican politicians fail to emphasize, such the increasing difficulty Americans face supporting families on a single income. Masters has pointed to the social and economic model of states such as California as one resembling a third-world country, pledging to fight against open borders, illegal immigration, and anarcho-tyranny as a Senator.
Brnovich is generally considered a favorite for the Republican nomination, being the only GOP candidate to have won a statewide election in the contentious purple state previously. Much of the party’s establishment has coalesced around the attorney general, with some grassroots activists suggesting the party break the mold for a statewide nominee after a series of renominations of poor candidates and political amateurs without much of a resume to offer voters.
