Blake Masters wins Arizona's GOP primary for Senate, will take on Democrat Mark Kelly

Blake Masters won the Republican primary for Senate in the crucial swing state of Arizona, setting up a showdown with Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in the fall.

CHANDLER, Ariz. — Blake Masters won the hard-fought Republican primary for Senate in the crucial swing state of Arizona on Tuesday, NBC News has projected, setting up a showdown with Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in the fall.

With more than three-quarters of the vote in, Masters led the primary race Wednesday morning with 39 percent of the vote. The venture capitalist was projected to defeat businessman Jim Lamon and state Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

Masters won the endorsement of former President Donald Trump and had touted it aggressively in campaign speeches and TV ads in the run-up to the primary.

The limited polling in the run-up to the primary showed Masters with an edge against Lamon and Mark Brnovich, the other major candidates.

Democrats have a 50-50 majority and Republicans need a net gain of one seat to seize control.
