TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Former White House strategist Steve Bannon told a Tucson audience that President Donald Trump needs their support "now more than ever" to fight off groups seeking to nullify the 2016 election. Bannon was the keynote speaker Saturday night at a benefit dinner for fallen Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Bannon was a top adviser to Trump until he resigned in August and returned to a conservative news website.

PHOENIX (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake was caught on an open microphone saying the GOP is "toast" if it follows Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore and President Donald Trump. The Arizona senator was talking to the mayor of the Phoenix suburb of Mesa after a town hall Friday. He apparently didn't know the microphone attached to his lapel was still on when he said, "(If we) become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, we are toast." Flake has spoken out against both men.

PHOENIX (AP) - Neil Bibler, a news editor and reporter for The Associated Press during a 33-year career that included stints in several Western states before settling in Arizona, died Tuesday. He was 81. Bibler had health issues associated with age but the cause of death was not immediately known, said Susan Coutin, one of his two daughters.

BISBEE, Ariz. (AP) - A man has died while being detained in a jail in the southern Arizona town of Bisbee. Cochise County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Carol Capas says the death occurred Thursday morning at a county jail.
