While McSally, a two-term congresswoman and former combat fighter pilot, had the strongest resume, she failed in this regard.
Flake did have good words for McSally, however, telling reporters just prior to the election that he hopes McSally takes the seat.
The Victory Fund's words were echoed by LGBTQ newspaper the Washington Blade, which called Sinema's primary win "a significant victory" as she has become "the first openly bisexual person to win a major party nomination to run for a U.S. Senate seat".
McSally is favored because she has the support of the party establishment and their donors - she outspent her opponents 10-1 on the airwaves - and because opposition to her on the right is split between two insurgent candidates, former Maricopa County SheriffJoe Arpaio and former State Senator Kelli Ward.
That may have implications for the 2020 race and Doug Ducey's appointment of a replacement for John McCain, too. That could make it harder for her to win in November, when she is expected to face Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in a blue-wave year.
Beyond checking the winners, primaries in Arizona and Florida will offer political observers plenty of data to plow through.
McSally has already launched advertising aimed at her likely Democratic opponent in November, US Representative Kyrsten Sinema. But Trump's surprise endorsement of DeSantis in December appears to give the congressman an edge heading into Tuesday's contest. One of their best chances is in South Florida, where Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is retiring in a district that should favor Democrats.
Arizona is one of three states holding elections Tuesday.
A contentious three-way US Senate battle in Arizona yesterday among Republicans fighting to prove the depth of their allegiance to President Donald Trump tops the last big day of state nominating contests before November's elections.
That's a message that may play well among a general electorate in West Virginia, where Trump won by more than 40 percentage points in 2016, but Trump carried Florida by only a single percentage point.
Polls have shown a close race.
On the Democratic side, the national party would prefer the more centrist former Rep. Gwen Graham, the daughter of former governor and Sen.
The scenario cuts against the grain of a midterm election cycle that's been defined by energy on the left in other states, and it puts an added burden on Florida Democratic candidates to attract voters who didn't participate in Tuesday's primaries.
Trump's post-midnight tweet came after Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) was declared the victor in a hard-fought GOP primary to replace Flake, a frequent Trump critic who decided not to seek reelection this year amid lackluster polling numbers.
GOP voters in Oklahoma backed mortgage company owner Kevin Stitt in a gubernatorial runoff. Cornett is running on his government experience, while Stitt has campaigned as the outsider, self-funding his campaign and hitting Cornett for not supporting Trump enough. Whoever wins will be the favorite this fall in the open seat against Democratic nominee Drew Edmondson, the state's former attorney general.
