A new poll from the Arizona-based Data Orbital survey research firm (1/11-15; 500 AZ likely Republican primary voters) finds Rep. Martha McSally (R-Tucson) leading former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and ex-state Sen. Kelli Ward for the open Republican Senate primary. According to these latest numbers, Rep. McSally holds a 31-22-19% lead over Mr. Arpaio and Ms. Ward, respectively. The analysis suggests that McSally’s strong base within her Tucson congressional district is largely responsible for her statewide advantage. The Arizona primary isn’t until August 28th, however, so this campaign has much time to change.
