Few Swing Districts in Arizona Legislature Races

A discussion with Arizona Capitol Times reporter Ben Giles.

Races for governor and the U.S. House and Senate have soaked up attention in recent weeks. However, all seats in the Arizona Legislature are also up for a vote. Arizona Capitol Times reporter Ben Giles highlighted some districts that Democrats could flip.

Giles told Christopher Conover only a few districts are competitive, including the 10th Legislative District in Tucson. Giles said Democrats have a chance to reclaim a seat held by Republican Todd Clodfelter, who is running for re-election. However, he was less certain a "blue wave" could sweep the Legislature.

"I will believe it when I see it. This has been the narrative in every election cycle," Giles said. "[Democrats] haven't even split the chamber since 2001, 2002."
