Arizona’s Senate, congressional and legislative primaries are coming up on August 30. Later this week, early ballots will start arriving in your mailbox. Sen. John McCain will be defending his seat against former State Sen. Kelli Ward.

Until Sunday night, he was also being opposed by Alex Meluskey. That’s when Meluskey announced he was suspending his campaign.

To learn more about what that could mean for the Senate race, we spoke with Republican strategist Shane Wikfors of Red Mountain Consulting.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
