AP: Tom Horne falls in GOP attorney general primary

Posted: Updated:

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 

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.
