"He knows what he's saying, I'm not giving him a pass and I don't think anyone should", she said.

"Our campaign has been laser-focused on the issues that are important to everyday Arizonans, and those are not Republican or Democratic issues - those are just bread-and-butter issues that people worry about every day", said Sinema. Sometimes Democrats have, too.

President Donald Trump says he hasn't heard remarks by Florida GOP gubernatorial nominee Rep. Ron DeSantis that critics argue were a racially charged attack on his Democratic opponent.

The outcome of the Gillum-DeSantis race - between candidates who are polar opposites in many ways - will be a profound indicator of three things: how the American people feel about the policies of President Trump; what they think of the possibility of impeaching him; and how they may vote in the next presidential election if Trump is on the ballot.

DeSantis spokesman Stephen Lawson said the candidate was referring to Gillum's political positions, not his race. Gillum, a far-left Democrat seeking to become the state's first black governor, and DeSantis, a Trump-endorsed Republican, are political opposites, both seeking to gin up turnout among the party's most ardent supporters.

"Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses", Lawson said in a statement.

U.S. Senate candidate and U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., speaks to supporters after her primary election victory, Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018, in Tempe, Ariz.

But many conservatives aren't happy with McSally, who was viewed as the DC insiders' pick during the primary.

The primary happened in the shadow of the death of Arizona's senior senator, John McCain, whose body will lie at the Arizona Capitol on Wednesday.

President Trump wasted no time congratulating the 52-year-old congresswoman on her win in an early Wednesday morning tweet. She is Strong on Crime, the Border and our under siege 2nd Amendment.

She and Democratic rival, U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema have temporarily suspended their campaigns while the body of six-term U.S. Sen. Since Gillum is a successful and well-spoken black mayor, they believe he has a better chance with black and progressive voters, which could prove true.

In 2014, she unseated an incumbent Republican - one of the party's few bright spots on an otherwise dismal night - but distanced herself from national Democrats by refusing to vote for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) during the vote for speaker of the house.

Now McSally will face Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, a fellow USA representative who easily won her primary, in the race to fill the seat being vacated by Senator Jeff Flake.
