Arizona Election Congressional and Senatorial Race info 2016

The state's population has exploded in the last decade, gaining more than 28 percent since 2000 according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Political strategists in the state expect
that Arizona will gain two congressional seats.

Republicans enjoy a slim registration advantage, but the Hispanic population here continues to grow, and that dynamic has thrown the state's politics into flux in recent years.

According to registration data in Arizona, as of late August, the state had 3.1 million registered voters. Of those, 1.1 million were registered Republicans, 1 million were registered Democrats and 953,000 were independents. Democratic strategists believe the level of independents may overtake the number of registered Democrats in short order.

Hispanic residents comprise at least 30 percent of the population, according to the same census figures, and political strategists on both sides of the aisle said Hispanic voting trends will be a key data point for the parties headed into 2016.

Complicating factors are that population growth has stalled in the last two years and Arizona has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the nation. The impact of the immigration law and the state's economic dynamics have left Republicans divided about whether or not Democrats will be able to contest the state in upcoming statewide elections.
