Russell Pearce Appears to be Losing (UPDATE: Pearce Has Lost)

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 at 9:48 PM

Reports out of Mesa look grim for Russell Pearce's comeback hopes. The latest numbers show him to be losing by 14 points to Skymall founder Bob Worsley in the Republican primary election for Mesa's LD 25.

Pearce, as you'll recall, made headlines both for being the legislator pushing hardest for SB 1070, as well as for losing a recall election late last year when Mesa voters felt he left their interests behind in favor of his immigration crusade.

Things don't look good for Pearce's brother, Lester, either. Early results show him losing big to his opponent, Steve Chucri in the primary race for Maricopa County Supervisor in District 2. Numbers from an hour ago show Chucri leading with 58.3% of the votes to Lester's 41.7%.

UPDATE, 10:36 p.m.: With more than 56% of precincts reporting, it's safe to say that Pearce is out of this one. Latest total shows Worsley beating him, 56.21% to 43.61%.

This tweet from Michelle Donaldson of Phoenix's KPHO says it all:
