Election night in America was a decisive  repudiation of the Obama Administration and the issues, like immigration reform, the president has championed.

Because Arizona is ground zero for immigration reform, Trump’s victory spoke to what most Americans want, real legal immigration.

Like was the case across the country, Arizona has seen a change in the make up of its congressional delegation.

Does Texas have a constitutional right to defy Supreme Court on protecting its border?

Rep. Matt Salmon (R) chose not to run for re-election, causing a contentious Republican primary race that eventually led to now-Representative-elect Andy Biggs victory on election night.

Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D) is out of the U.S. Congress after losing her senatorial race against incumbent Senator John McCain (R)

Vying to fill the vacancy in the House Kirkpatrick would leave, Democratic congressional candidates Tom O’Halloran ran and defeated Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu (R) in Arizona’s 1st congressional district.

As for the rest of the delegation, they all held on to their respective seats.

Here is how they did last night.
