GOP Worries Sexting Scandal Could Cost a House Seat

"I look forward to welcoming Debbie to Congress after she wins the general election on April 24, so she can join in our efforts to pursue more conservative reforms that will help Arizona and American families get ahead", House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement.

Two aides say Franks approached them about surrogacy, and the AP reported Franks offered an aide $5 million to carry his child.

Tipirneni will face off against former state Sen.

Lesko had support from popular former Gov. Jan Brewer and a host of local mayors and city council members.

Lesko took just under 36 percent of the vote, easily outdistancing her nearest challengers Phil Lovas and Steve Montenegro, also former state lawmakers, who won 23.88 and 23.82 percent of the vote, respectively. He said he became too close to the woman, but "never had an inappropriate relationship with her or anyone else".

A staffer for Steve Montenegro's campaign told The Arizona Republic about 9 p.m. MT that he had conceded the race to Lesko and was thanking his supporters. The woman in that matter acknowledged sending Montenegro topless photos of herself and engaging in sexually charged chats with Montenegro on multiple occasions.

The staffer's attorney said Montenegro had "groomed" her for months and that they discussed various sexual matters.

Some polling and unofficial prediction markers favored the former state senator to win the primary.

She faced unwanted scrutiny in the campaign's final days about moving $50,000 from her state campaign coffers to a pro-Lesko federal political-action committee that was supposed to operate independently of her.

Ryan Giggs defends Alexis Sanchez amid claims Manchester United 'regret' January signing
The Frenchman has been in excellent form scoring 11 goals and producing a further nine assists in just 37 appearances this season. Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs says nobody should worry about Alexis Sánchez' early struggles as a United player.

Hiral Tipirneni has won the Democratic primary in a special election to replace an Arizona congressman who stepped down while facing allegations of sexual misconduct.

A judge who was taunted by Donald Trump during the presidential campaign sided with the president Tuesday on a challenge to building a border wall with Mexico, removing what could have been a major obstacle to the signature campaign pledge. He stepped down from his state House seat a year ago after he was appointed to a Small Business Administration post in the Trump administration.

"I like to think the state is slowly turning purple", King said Monday as he sat in his golf cart, a common form of area transportation, with his French bulldog mix Stuart.

While the Democratic primary was essentially a two-candidate race, on the Republican side there were a dozen candidates.

Corinne Clark, a retail worker from Surprise, Arizona, said she regretted casting her ballot for Montenegro in early voting, before the allegations about him surfaced.

"I believe in solving problems and improving lives, which is all about people, not partisanship", Tipirneni said while announcing her candidacy. "But my number one reason for voting for him was because he has Christian values, and it makes me mad that this has come up afterward".

The Democrats, Dr. Hiral Tipirneni and Brianna Westbrook, are political newcomers.

Tipirneni, an emergency room physician by profession, gives the Democrats a ray of hope in the Congressional District which has been a stronghold of the Republicans for a long time.
