Rep. Franks wins re-election in 8th Cong. District

PEORIA, Ariz. -- Republican Rep. Trent Franks has easily won re-election in his heavily Republican district covering the northern and western Phoenix suburbs.

The 55-year-old Franks was heavily favored to win on Tuesday and had a comfortable lead in early returns. He was seeking a sixth term and faced Democrat Gene Scharer and Americans Elect party candidate Stephen Dolgos.

Franks' old district covered the entire northwestern corner of the state. With redistricting it only covers parts of metropolitan Phoenix but the new 8th Congressional District remained solidly Republican.

Franks won the GOP nomination in August by a large margin, easily beating a Glendale businessman and a write-in candidate.
