Arizona's primary election may have lacked the gravitas of November's much-anticipated general election, but there were key races to watch.

This includes races in the state Legislature, which could determine whether Democrats retake the state House of Representatives for the first time since the 1966 elections.

Democrats also had to choose their opponent to run in the congressional race against the embattled, five-term Rep. David Schweikert, R-Ariz. Other big name tickets included Joe Arpaio's attempt to regain his former job as sheriff.

Where did voters land? And what, if anything, could this tell us about November's election? State Legislature reporter Andrew Oxford joined hosts Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald J. Hansen to break down the election results in today's episode of The Gaggle: An Arizona politics podcast.
