When it comes to politics, Arizona is truly a purple state.

For the first time in 24 years, Arizona's electoral votes went to a Democratic Presidential candidate. Arizona also elected Democrat Mark Kelly to the U.S. Senate. The state will now have a pair of Democratic senators in the upper chamber for the first time since 1953.

At the same time, Arizona voters kept the state legislature in Republican control.
