PHOENIX (AP) - Attorney General Tom Horne has been thrown out of office in the Republican primary after a rocky first term.
Horne lost the primary to the state's former top gambling regulator, Mark Brnovich (BURN-uh-vich)
Brnovich attacked Horne for the many investigations that have hounded him in his first term and prompted most of the Arizona political establishment to distance themselves.
Horne was investigated for a hit-and-run accident, campaign finance violations and having his attorney general staff work on his re-election effort while on the clock.
Brnovich will face Democrat Felecia Rotellini in the November election.
