In the East Valley's conservative 5th Congressional District, the winner of Tuesday's Republican Primary Election all but guaranteed a ticket to Washington.

There's a four way race involving former Maricopa county supervisor Don Stapley, Arizona state Senate President Andy Biggs, State Rep. Justin Olson and Christine Jones, a former Go Daddy executive.

Recent polls showed razor-thin margins between the candidates.

Biggs was endorsed by the retiring U.S. Rep Matt Salmon. Jones poured some of her personal fortune into campaign ads touting her business credentials in a field of career politicians.
