Mapping the Vote: CD1
A joint analysis by the Arizona Capitol Times and the Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting shows that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney beat Democrat Barack Obama by more than 20,000 votes in CD1. But Kirkpatrick earned a greater number of votes than Obama in almost half of the precincts in the district, a trend particularly strong in Republican-leaning areas. In those same areas, Paton got far fewer votes than Romney and generally underperformed when compared to the partisan registration. In 162 of the district’s 339 voting precincts, Kirkpatrick got more votes than Obama. Paton on the other hand, got more votes than Romney in just 25 precincts.
