The race to be Arizona’s first female senator

In these last frenetic campaign days, Donald Trump has tried to boost the focus on illegal immigration ever higher to shore up seats he fears losing to the Democrats.

With a record number of women running, next week could see the first African American female governor – and the first Native American woman in Congress.
