Top Counties to Watch on Election Night 2018 (Part 1)

Primary Recap: What Happened in Florida and Arizona?
Voters in Florida and Arizona picked candidates in key races up and down the ballot Tuesday night. While the primaries for Senate in Florida were a bit of a formality, Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) and Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) faced little to no opposition, the governor’s race provided one of the biggest surprises of the night, if not the midterms.
In Arizona, Republican voters finally decided on a candidate to take on Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in the general election. Their choice? The first U.S. female fighter pilot to fly in combat.
