Congress: Heinz over Steele in CD2 Dems, Babeu over field in CD1 GOP

primary election 2016 graphicThere are plenty of ballots left to be counted, but Matt Heinz has the lead in the race that will determine the Democrat who will take on Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally in CD2 this November. Heinz, who raised significantly more money than Victoria Steele and ran a traditional campaign versus Steele’s low-budget, grassroots effort, has 53 percent of the vote and a lead of 2,886 votes, as of the last time we were able to access the Secretary of State’s very buggy Website

Over in CD1, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu is leading a crowded field, with Wendy Rogers coming in second place. Rogers had hammered Babeu about allegations that he had been aware of abuse that was taking place at a school where he served as an administrator and had landed the support of two of Babeu’s sisters.

Expect that story to be amplified as the DCCC and other groups start spending TV dollars in support of Democrat Tom O’Halleran, who served in the Arizona Legislature as a moderate Republican and who switched parties to seek the congressional seat.
