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.
Now that nearly all of votes are counted, we know that the special election goes to our opponent. I congratulate Debbie…
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.
Congratulations to Republican Debbie Lesko on her big win in the Special Election for Arizona House seat. Debbie will do a Great Job! Press is so silent.

Georgia Gubernatorial Candidate Insults Voters: ‘This Primary About Who Can Be The Craziest’
A candidate for governor in Georgia was caught on tape insulting voters this week, adding to mounting difficulties for his campaign.
“This primary felt like it was [about] who had the biggest gun, who had the biggest truck, and who could be the craziest,” said Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle on a recorded tape.
The recording was released by Cagle’s primary opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
In a recording from the same conversation last month, Cagle could be heard pushing legislation he did not favor in order to deprive another political candidate of “millions of dollars of support.”
“They wanted that $100 million Student Scholarship Organizations,” Cagle said in the recording. “And, you know, I was the only guy standing in the way. Is it bad public policy? Between you and me, it is. I can tell you how it is a thousand different ways.”
President Donald J. Trump endorsed Cagle’s opponent Wednesday, adding to his problems.
“Brian Kemp is running for Governor of the great state of Georgia,” he said. “The Primary is on Tuesday. Brian is tough on crime, strong on the border and illegal immigration. He loves our Military and our Vets and protects our Second Amendment. I give him my full and total endorsement.”
