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.

RAGA’s Zack Roday Gives the Lay of the Land for Attorney General Races Across the Country
The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) might not grab the headlines that the Republican National Committee (RNC) does, but the work that this group is doing is just as critically important.
“Our sole focus is on electing rule-of-law-driven state attorneys general, and our first priority in that effort is re-electing our incumbents,” said Zack Roday, RAGA’s communications director, during an exclusive one-on-one interview with AR Intel. But in a year in which many Republicans are running for AG for the first time, he stressed that electing Republican candidates across the board is critical.
“People should be excited about voting for Republican attorneys general. Our candidates will prioritize the rule of law and safety over political gamesmanship,” he said.

Soros, Steyer, and Sanders All Endorsed This 4th Place Florida Gov Candidate. Why?
One candidate running for Democratic nomination in Florida’s gubernatorial primary seems to have it all – he has the backing of billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer; he has the support of liberal mega donor George Soros; and on Wednesday, he earned the backing of one of the most popular politicians in America today, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
There’s just one problem – Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is mired in fourth place, according a series of recent polls.

VIDEO: Ocasio-Cortez Continues Her Rage Against the Democratic Machine Tour
Socialist candidate for Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is traveling the country and spreading her message to audiences in Kansas, Delaware, Florida, and Michigan. In some cases, Ocasio-Cortez is doing interviews on behalf of candidates, but in others, she’s actually showing up.
The one thing that ties all of her endorsements together is she’s backing the most out-of-touch liberal candidate in every race. Many times that means backing a candidate who is challenging an incumbent Democrat. And that’s not sitting well with many Democrats.
At an event in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Ocasio-Cortez ripped into a nameless, faceless Democratic establishment right from the start of her prepared remarks. To watch video of her speech, become an AR Intel Insider today and sign up for a 7-day free trial!

RSLC’s Matt Walter: Democrats’ Claim of ‘Rigged System’ No Substitute for Winning at Ballot Box
During Barack Obama’s tenure as president, Republicans picked up nearly 1,000 state legislative seats across the country, and Matt Walter, the executive director of the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC), wants to keep it that way.
Following the 2016 elections, Republicans held an all-time high of 69 of the country’s 99 state legislative bodies. “The Republican Party has never had that in its history,” Walter said in an exclusive conversation with AR Intel last week.
How did that happen? And better yet, why?

TRACKING VIDEO: Michigan Democrat Gov. Candidate Gretchen Whitmer: ‘Yeah,’ Abolish ICE
Former state Sen. Gretchen Whitmer is the leading candidate in Michigan’s Democratic gubernatorial primary, which is about a month away, and on Friday, she attended a “Families Belong Together” rally in Lansing, Michigan.
Whitmer was asked what so many Democrats have been asked in recent days: do you believe the U.S. should abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)? The agency has been in Democrats’ crosshairs ever since images surfaced of children being separated from their parents at detention centers along the U.S.-Mexican border last month.
While a few Democrats have come out in favor of abolishing ICE and “starting over,” that is certainly the minority and fringe opinion, even among Democrats at the moment.
