In the third "Super Tuesday" we have a few critical states voting today in both the Republican and Democratic primaries: The Arizona primary and the Utah caucus. Arizona is a key player in the heavily contested Republican field because it is a winner-take-all state with 58 delegates on the line. If Republican frontrunner Donald Trump can win Arizona, he will be in solid position to take down Ted Cruz.
On the Democratic side, If Hillary can win both states and get all the pledged delegates, she will all but put away "The Bern" and he may start to get some pressure to drop out. There has been some interesting events leading up to todays primaries, particularly regarding Arizona. GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has campaigned actively in Arizona since he decided to run back in June of 2015. He is very popular in Arizona and has had many rallies with tens of thousands of people in attendance.
He has also picked up key endorsements from Sherrif Joe Arpaio (Originally a Masshole) and former Governor Jan Brewer. Over the weekend, a group of protestors attempted to prevent people from attending Trump's rally outside of Phoenix, AZ by blocking a major road, and most likely ruining people's Saturdays who weren't even going to the rally. Trump has been leading in the polling for Arizona by significant margins so if that holds true this will be a significant pickup for "The Donald".
On the Democratic side of the aisle there have also been some interesting events taking place over the last week or so. About a week ago, The Bern's wife came, probably for the first time in her life, to Arizona and went to spy on Sherrif Joe's prison called "Tent City". As she started to snoop around the facility, good old Sherrif Joe came out to greet her and give her a personal tour of the facility.
Then they started to have a debate.
This lead to some controversy as "The Bern" a few days later at a rally called out Sherrif Joe for "accosting his wife". That, to me, sounds like a battle of the old dudes. A good old-fashioned showdown. The Bern is 74, but looks about 104 and Sherrif Joe himself is 83. Not sure how this showdown would happen, but it could take the form of a golf match, a game of bingo or even a game of black jack. It doesn't matter either way because Hilary is well ahead in the polls for Arizona and will most likely win the Arizona primary.
