RED WAVE: Democrat Officially Concedes In Arizona Special Election
Republican Debbie Lesko has officially bested Democrat Hiral Tipirneni in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District special election. Despite the win being clear as of Tuesday night, it took until early in the afternoon on Wednesday for Lesko’s opponent to officially concede.
In the concession announcement, Tipirneni made her intention to compete against Lesko again in November clear.
President Donald Trump was pushing for Lesko, who previously served as a state senator. After the election was called for Lesko, Trump took to Twitter to congratulate her.
