Arizona's Legislative Elections: Five Districts to Watch

As is the case with the congressional races in Arizona, not every race for Arizona's legislative seats is competitive -- just 17 of the 30 state Senate races have candidates from both major parties, and 20 of the 30 state House races have at least one Democrat and one Republican.

Still, that leaves plenty of room for some competitive races, which could change the party breakdown in both chambers. Republicans currently occupy 40 of the 60 seats in the House, and 21 of the 30 seats in the Senate.
