Rep. Martha McSally has a 14-point lead in Arizona’s Republican Senate primary, based on a new poll by OH Predictive Insights of Phoenix.
McSally is leading with just more than 39 percent, according to the poll. Former state Sen. Kelli Ward is second at 24.5 percent, and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arapio trails with 14 percent. About 22 percent of voters are reportedly undecided.
