Emily Ryan and Chad Campbell joined Steve Goldstein and Mark Brodie on The Show on Aug. 29, 2018.

The U.S. Senate race is now set in Arizona with a pair of female members of congress officially nominated to succeed Senator Jeff Flake.

In addition to that competition, there were a lot of very interesting results from Tuesday’s primary — including some surprises and statewide incumbents losing to challengers. We’ll be touching on some of those.

For a deeper dive into a few races, The Show spoke to former legislative leader Chad Campbell of Strategies 360 and Emily Ryan of Copperstate Consulting.

The Show continued the conversation with Lisa Fernandez, vice president at Resolute Consulting and Paul Bentz, vice president of research and strategy at High Ground, who provided more analysis and feedback about Tuesday's primary results.
