Primary day in Arizona and Michigan has come to an end, with some key races being called, while the gubernatorial primary out of Arizona – which undoubtedly has the most eyes on it – is reportedly still too close to call as of the morning of August 3rd.

Among the races called within the Republican primary in Arizona is for the secretary of state, which the Trump-backed candidate Mark Finchem snagged the Republican nomination. According to currently available data from the state on voter turnout, Finchem acquired over 243,000 votes, whereas the closest runner-up, Beau Lane, trailed behind with a few hundred votes shy of 146,000.

Another race called in the state’s primaries went to Trump-endorsed Blake Masters, who will be facing off against Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly in the November midterms. Much like in Finchem’s case, Masters obtained nearly 243,000 votes, with the closest runner-up, Jim Lamon, coming in with just over 179,000 votes.

Meanwhile, the heated race between the Trump-endorsed Kari Lake and Karrin Taylor Robson for the Republican nomination for the gubernatorial race is still too close to call. With precincts reporting at 97% as of the morning of August 3rd, Lake currently has 294,259 votes while Robson totes 282,935.

Fox News reports that Lake is seemingly unconcerned over the margin, noting that she boasted to her supporters at a primary election night rally that she is “winning this 100%,” adding that there is “no path to victory for my opponent. We won this race.”

As for Robson, she took to Twitter to tell her supporters, “We feel calm and confident, and we will wait for every vote to be counted!”

The race between Lake and Robson in the Republican primary was largely viewed as not merely a gubernatorial primary – but rather a race that was viewed as sort of a proxy war between Trump and his former vice president, Mike Pence. As mentioned earlier, Trump had endorsed Lake, whereas Pence opted to give his endorsement to Robson.

One of the critical differences between Lake and Robson is their respective takes regarding the results of the 2020. Lake has plainly stated on numerous occasions that she believes the 2020 election was stolen from Trump. Yet, when it comes to Robson, she’ll go about as far as claiming the 2020 election wasn’t fair – but won’t outright state there was rampant fraud or that it was stolen from Trump.

Furthermore, Robson lambasted Lake back in July when the Trump-endorsed candidate expressed concerns that the Arizona primary races may suffer from voter fraud, with Robson responding to those claims with, “[Lake’s] allegations are meritless, reckless and disqualifying in someone who seeks the will of the governed in leading our state.”

Moving on to Michigan, which also held its primaries on August 2nd, Trump-endorsed John Gibbs pulled off a victory against Rep. Peter Meijer. The race for the Republican nomination to run for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District was observed as a critical one for fans of the former president, as incumbent Rep. Meijer was one of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach Trump in the wake of the January 6th incident at the Capitol.

Ironically, Democrats wound up spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to run ads in favor of Gibbs in the primary, a strategy Democrats believe will help them in the midterms as they view ardent Trump supporters as being more likely to be defeated by their Democrat opponents this November.
