2012 Arizona Republican Primary Election Results: Key Races

Congressman David Schweikert defeats Congressman Ben Quayle. Schweikert says Quayle was “very gracious” in his concession call, and it was “big boy politics.”

Former Cong. Matt Salmon defeats former Arizona Speaker of the House Kirk Adams in another contentious congressional race.

Former Cong. Jeff Flake smashes Wil Cardon in the GOP Senate primary to replace retiring Jon Kyl.

Kyl and Sen. John McCain lose two of three races congressional endorsements. Kyl had said “It’s time to turn things over to Ben Quayle” and “to Kirk Adams.” Voters had the final say over Kyl’s attempt to call the shots.
