Arizona House and Senate
If you’re curious about the Arizona Legislative District 23 House and Senate races, according to this source, John Kavanaugh has defeated Jeff Schwartz for the right to be on the ballot in November (Senate). His Democrat opponent will be Paula Pennypacker. Michelle Ugenti and Jay Lawrence defeated Republicans Effie Carlson and Bob Littlefield (House). Ugenti and Lawrence will run unopposed as no Democrats chose to run in this race in Legislative District 23.
Scottsdale City Council
In Scottsdale, there will be a runoff for City Council. According to azcentral.com today, “No candidates were elected outright in Tuesday’s primary election, according to early unofficial results.
As a result, six candidates will advance to the general election on Nov. 4 to compete for three seats opening on the council.
With 47 of 53 precincts reported as of late Tuesday, the top six candidates, in order of votes received, were Linda Milhaven, Jennifer Petersen, David Smith, Dennis Robbins, Kathy Littlefield and Cindy Hill. Votes still were being counted and results were not yet official.”
