Rolling Stone

UPDATE: The Republican primary for Arizona’s senate race has officially been called for Blake Masters.

Going into election night, former President Donald Trump endorsed candidate Blake Masters was leading the Republican field by a comfortable margin of 18 points and with an overall backing of nearly 40% of likely GOP voters.

In second place in this Emerson College poll, which took place between July 28th and July 30th sampling over 600 voters, was Jim Lamon who earned 22% of support.

According to Blake Masters’ website:

Blake grew up in Tucson, Arizona. In 2012, he married his high school sweetheart, Catherine. Happily married for 10 years now, Blake and Catherine are raising and homeschooling their three beautiful boys, Miles, Graham, and Rex.

After graduating from Stanford and Stanford Law School, Blake co-founded a successful software startup called Judicata. In 2014, he co-authored the #1 New York Times bestseller Zero to One. Having sold more than 4 million copies, it’s the world’s most popular book on startups and venture capital.

In 2015 Blake became President of the Thiel Foundation, a nonprofit that promotes science and innovation. The Foundation’s Thiel Fellowship Program has paid 225 young people to drop out of college so that they can create new companies. Businesses started by Thiel Fellows are together now worth more than $45 billion! From 2018 to 2022, Blake was Chief Operating Officer at Thiel Capital, an investment firm that specializes in the technology sector, where he helped grow assets under management by billions of dollars.

Blake also joined President Trump’s transition team in 2016.

Blake Masters is running on several key issues that are important to Arizona voters, one being that he is committed to ending woke education and pushing back against “Left-wing bureaucrats are programming curriculums with radical political agendas”.

In addition, Blake Masters is calling out the Biden Administration and current Democrat incumbent for Arizona’s senate race Mark Kelly for causing the worst inflation in the last forty years, comparing it to “Soviet Russia”.

Blake Masters also supports the energy independence America got to experience under the true leadership of former President Donald Trump, and attacks Joe Biden’s radical war on American production of energy.

Lastly, but possibly most important for Arizona considering it’s a border state, Blake Masters is a large supporter of securing our southern border that is currently experiencing an unprecedented 225,000 illegal border crossing each month.
