AZ, Utah GOP elections: We’ve got what you’re looking for

Locate your polling place.  Polls are open until 7:00 PM

Votes counted today, March 22, will be a major determiner as to whether Ted Cruz or Donald Trump secure enough delegates to capture the Republican nomination for president on the first ballot at the party’s July convention. John Kasich is still playing his “spoiler” role, though outside of RINO talk show host Michael Medved and the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), there are few who appreciate his brassy tactics.

Arizona is a winner-take-all state with 58 Republican delegates. Utah’s caucus is a majority-take-all. RCP’s GOP interactive delegate count map can be seen here.

 Arizona election results via the Secretary of State’s office are HERE. Results will be available after 8:00 PM.

Update-tag

Ted Cruz won by a wide margin in Utah and Donald Trump has swept Arizona — proving that few people read the left-wing Arizona Republic newspaper, and even fewer are inclined to take its asinine editorial advice to “Reject Trump. Reject Cruz. Vote Kasich.”

    It’s almost 7:30 and polls are still open with long lines waiting to vote. May not know results until tomorrow morning. Unreal!

    Independents showed up expecting to vote and were told it is a closed primary. They didn’t do their homework. The number of polling places has been cut back some say from 200 to 60. And there is a very high turnout.

      The fact that the turnout is high is encouraging. Formerly apathetic people are engaged. Driving home this evening I heard registered Independents on the radio grousing about not being able to vote. I have no sympathy. They should be better informed. But most of all, they should think this through. Voters can be as “independent ” as they’d like in the General Election. But the Primary Election is where Republicans and Democrats have the opportunity to select their own top notch candidate to go up against the opposing party’s nominee. There is nothing unfair about letting Republicans and Democrats each select those they consider their best representatives to engage in the General. Independents made a choice that properly disenfranchises them from meddling in the preliminaries of either party. Would the Suns want the Lakers selecting their team players?

    Oops. I forgot the Green Party qualified for the ballot this cycle. That’s even more reason to keep the primaries closed. Each party is entitled to select its own candidates to move forward to the General, where we are ALL independent voters.
