Republicans here and around the country had a disappointing midterm election, losing the biggest statewide races as the party leaned to the right and nominated extreme candidates.

But the Arizona GOP did manage to hold onto control of both houses of our state Legislature — by thin margins.

Democrats had a plan to take either house in the midterms this year, and they came close to doing it, but fell short. And now Republicans are choosing their leadership and dealing with internal fractures as they look forward to a new session.

The Arizona Republic’s Ray Stern is covering it all.
