The results were not so good for another pair of Republicans in state government -- scandal-plagued Attorney General Tom Horne lost his primary to former Arizona Department of Gaming director Mark Brnovich. John Huppenthal, the state's Superintendent of Public Instruction who was caught up in a scandal of his own this year, lost big to primary challenger Diane Douglas.

The 392 arrests over the weekend was an increase over the same weekend last year, which ended with 371 arrests.
