Fiehler, Leach win LD 17 straw ballot


The SaddleBrooke Republican club hosted a candidate forum for state legislative candidates in the newly drawn Legislative District 17. Arizona elects one Senator and two House representatives from each district.

For Saddlebrook LD 17, SaddleBrooke resident Senator Vince Leach bested his two competitors handily. In the House race, Eagle Crest resident Kirk Fiehler was in first by a substantial amount and Rachel Jones was a strong 2nd place-again the top two vote getters are elected to the House in November.

Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake held on to her lead which she has had since jumping into the race and her endorsement by Donald Trump.
