Kelli Ward, who's a wife, mom, Physician, and State Senator according to her website, is currently the leading contender.
She challenged Senator John McCain in 2016, but fell short.
This time she's back with a strong campaign infrastructure and has been receiving backing from many pro-Trump forces, including Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon, Laura Ingraham and others.
Recent polling showed Kelli Ward with a huge leg up on Jeff Flake, according to The Hill
The survey also shows Flake trailing Republican primary opponent Kelli Ward in a head-to-head matchup 58-31 percent. He trails by more than 20 points among registered Republicans and unaffiliated voters and is behind in every region in the state.
