Arizona Elections Chief Skips Big Election

Arizona's leading election official, Secretary of State Ken Bennett (R), "won't be around for one of the state's most important elections," the Arizona Republic reports.

Bennett "will be hobnobbing with other politicians and delegates at the Republican National Convention in Tampa instead of overseeing today's primary election, in which Arizona voters will pick partisan contenders for U.S. Senate, Congress, the state Legislature and local governments."

The marquee matchup today is between two House Republican freshmen elected in 2010, Rep. Ben Quayle (R-AZ) and Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ).
