Arizona's state treasurer claims victory in Republican primary

Ducey smiles after voting in Paradise Valley, PhoenixBy David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) – Arizona state treasurer and businessman Doug Ducey claimed victory on Tuesday in the race to be the Republican nominee to replace outgoing Governor Jan Brewer, who has repeatedly clashed with the Obama administration over illegal immigration. With border security issues high on the political agenda, Ducey held a convincing lead of 37 percent with two-thirds of the precincts reporting in the six-way race that included ex-mayor and developer Scott Smith. Ducey and Smith have been considered the top two candidates in the race by the latest political polls and by observers. The Arizona governor’s race is the highest profile battle among a series of state primary contests being held on Tuesday that also include votes in Florida, Vermont and Oklahoma.
