PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona voters turned out in record numbers to set the stage for a high stakes battle for the U.S. Senate, keep former Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s comeback hopes alive and give a strong challenger to a wounded incumbent congressman.
Dr. Hiral Tipirneni won a four-way Democratic primary Tuesday to take on scandal-scarred Republican Rep. David Schweikert and Arpaio was locked in a tight race to reclaim his old office.
Turnout was on track to set a record and no major voting issues were reported despite new procedures and shuffled polling places in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Returns lagged, though, leaving the outcome of many races unclear as of midnight.

Republican Sen. Martha McSally and Democrat Mark Kelly both easily secured their nominations and quickly previewed the high-stakes battle they’ll wage until November. Kelly portrayed himself as an independent outsider, while McSally looked to remind voters in a state where Republicans still have a registration advantage that Kelly is a Democrat.
