On Tuesday night, a special election was held in Arizona and Republican Debbie Lesko reigned victorious over Democrat Hiral with nearly 53% of the vote! This is despite the “blue wave” that the liberal media says is going to sweep over the Republicans in 2018.
Liberals were desperately hoping for a victory, but they were greatly disappointed once again.
Here are the final results from the NY Times:
Many people offered their congratulations:
Congratulations, @DebbieLesko! I worked with Debbie in the #AZLeg & know she represents the very best of #AZ08. Debbie will serve the people of Arizona honorably & be a great asset in #Congress. I look forward to joining her in DC next year! #2018Midterms #AZSEN #KAG18 pic.twitter.com/Dliurp4Vly

Earlier today, President Trump tweeted out his endorsement of Lesko:
Arizona, please get out today and vote @DebbieLesko for Congress in #AZ08. Strong on Border, Immigration and Crime. Great on the Military. Time is ticking down – get out and VOTE today. We need Debbie in Congress!

As Politico points out, the Republicans touted their victory over the hapless Democrats:
“This victory proves that Republicans have a positive record to run on this fall and we need to spend the next seven months aggressively selling our message to the American people. Debbie is a strong conservative whose values truly reflect those of the voters in Arizona’s Eighth District. The NRCC was proud to support her and our targeted and early investments proved to be a difference maker in the race.”
