Election Night in Arizona, Kirk Adams Releases New Ad; UPDATE: Flake Wins Senate Primary!; UPDATE II: Gosar Wins, Adams Fighting

It’s election night in Arizona for three of Governor Palin’s endorsed candidates. Polls just closed and we’ll keep you updated as the results come in. Good luck to Paul Gosar, Jeff Flake, and Kirk Adams.

Also, Kirk Adams released a great new ad, featuring Governor Palin. Enjoy!

Update by Steve

With only 15% of precincts reporting, Jeff Flake wins the AZ Senate Primary!  According to Politico.

Updated by Steve

Make that two wins in the Palin corner tonight.  Paul Gosar also wins his primary according to Politico.

Adams is still trailing but highly competitive.  The early lead his opponent opened up with seemed to indicate the results of early voting.  But, as the night has progressed, the Palin endorsement revealed itself as Adams began trailing Salmon by 7,000 votes and it continues to close in by a few hundred votes which indicates that Kirk Adams carried the momentum.  However; it looks like with only 20% of the precincts left to come in, it’d be uphill for Adams.  Nevertheless, he’s cut Salmon’s lead down by almost 2,000 votes by now.

      Thanks, BB!!

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    Wonderful, powerful ad!!

    Thanks, Stacy!

    • DocBarry1

      Let’s hope the AD brings him a Victory – it was a perfect speech for the AD

  • Escaped_Teleprompter

    Her speech was so good that the Kirk Adams campaign just replayed her speech for much of the ad, and that was sufficient to make it a very effective campaign ad. 

  • Steve_Flesher
    • BostonBruin

      So is Paul Gosar – leading with 53% and 8.3% reporting.

    • Steve_Flesher

       So is Gosar.  :-)

  • BostonBruin

    Salmon is leading Adams 25,318 to 18,709, with 0% reporting – so this must be the early voting only so far.

      Palin better hope that non-Zombie voters carry her guy to victory.

      Saw her on late night with Bret Baer. She nicely put the shiv in Christie’s back for barely mentioning Romney in his keynote. 

      • AngelaTX

        I loved how she knifed Christie. She was absolutely right.

      • Leroy Whitby

        Just between us chickens, Christie’s speech was dull. I went to bed during it. Where is the red meat? This is Obama we are running against. Attack him without sugar coating it and the crowd will light up like there’s electricity running through them.

  • AmazedOne1

      Matt Salmon 27,522 56%
      Kirk Adams 21,638 44%

    • section9

      That’s a pretty comfortable lead for Salmon. Unless Adams is counting on certain heavy precincts to come in, it probably won’t be his night. Looks okay for Gosar and Flake, though.

      • Steve_Flesher

         It stinks because every time they update, Adams cuts the lead by a few hundred votes.  In the beginning, he trailed by 6,609 votes.  Now with 61% he trails by 5,200.

  • AngelaTX

    So can we safely call it for Gosar? That’s TWO big wins for Palin tonight.

  • bamleader

    Kirk Adams still trails by 5K after 69% reporting.

    Congrats to Jeff Flake and Paul Gosar!!…….

    Super Cool  ad…….Sarah Rules.

  • wodiej

    Firstly, congrats to Flake and Gosar.  On the ad, WOW! Gov. Palin is so passionate about this cause of cleaning out DC.  The future of our country and her love for it.  What a wonderful advocate we have in her.  God bless you Gov. Palin and I’m with you, God Bless America.

        What, because he said Adams lost?

        Jesus tap-dancing Christ!

        • ZH100

          No, not because he said that Adams lost.

          Read his activity.

  • Timothy Jacques

    Margin of defeat for Adams was only a few thousand votes….there is room for improvement and it’s a learning experience.

    On another note, I’m sad to see Wendy Rogers (AZ-9) lost her bid in the AZ GOP primary….fell short by only a few hundred votes!!!!   I hope she tries again next time and gets a Palin endorsement!!!!

  • Jon Kelly

    Hey, Palin backed candidates Win or Lose Sarah stands by you.

    Remember this, when and if that day comes when Sarah asks you for help.

    Honor and loyalty is what we expect of candidates. Is that too much to ask?

    • Guest

      For most apparently…..I’m saddened to say….yes it is. 

  • friskyness

    When will voters understand that when Sarah says to vote for a candidate, you need to vote for that candidate!!!!!!!  It’s so frustrating!  At least she won 2 out of 3!!!!!!!!!! Plus, I wish Sarah had that Rally a few days earlier…….she did it the day before the election, doesn’t give time for people to make sure they vote!!!!!!!!! I know, I know,, Sarah knows best……..but gosh……………..
