Arizona: Senator who toppled Senate Majority Leader in 2011 recall loses seat

Arizona Senator Jerry Lewis, who defeated Senate Majority Leader Russell Pearce in a recall race last November, lost his seat in the regular election yesterday. Due to redistricting, Lewis' new seat was turned from a strongly-Republican district to a Democratic-leaning one.

Pearce tried for a comeback in a different Senate district, but lost in the primary.
