Trump-backed Blake Masters won Arizona GOP's senate primary and will meet incumbent Senator Mark Kelly in the general election. Masters took 38.9 percent of the vote over rival Jim Lamon, who had 28.9 percent. Mark Brnovich, Arizona Attorney General, gained 18.4 percent of the state's vote for his candidacy.

Masters was the front-runner in the GOP ahead of Tuesday's contest against Lamon, who is in the business of solar energy. Masters was backed, too, by tech billionaire Peter Thiel, who is also Masters' former employer.

On election night, Arizona Republicans along with the RNC issued a joint statement slamming Pinal County, saying that they had problems with their mail-in voting procedures and practices. They jointly called for the resignation of Pinal County Elections Director David Frisk. Mail-in votes tend to favor Democrats.

Biden won Arizona in the 2020 presidential election.
