The latest presidential poll in Arizona shows Mitt Romney and Herman Cain in a dead heat for the Republican nomination.
But in a head-to-head contest, both candidates lagged behind President Barack Obama, a surprise given Arizona’s conservative leanings.
Rep. Carl Seel suggested that the Independent Redistricting Commission’s mapping consultants may have put him in a less Republican district in retaliation for his legislative record.
