BREAKING: Arizona Special Election Results For Eighth House District


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by

Republican Debbie Lesko is projected to win Arizona’s nationally watched special election, fending off a strong challenge from Democrats who have been over-performing in deep-red seats.

Lesko, a former state senator, defeated Democrat Hiral Tipirneni, a former emergency room doctor and first-time candidate, on Tuesday night in a solidly Republican district that President Trump won by 21 points in 2016.

Tuesday’s special election was triggered by the resignation of GOP Rep. Trent Franks, who stepped down in December after allegedly asking a staffer to carry his child. Lesko will serve out the remainder of Franks’s term, and is expected to run again in November for a full two-year term.

The New York Times declares that Debbie Lesko has won the election, reporting results of 52.9% to 47.1% in Lesko’s favor.

President Donald J. Trump had endorsed Lesko.
