Ace sleuths Tom Ryan and Paul Bentz take a look at the 2022 political landscape, including redistricting and voter registration trends as well as an early take on some Arizona primary elections.

In Arizona, independent registrations are gaining at the expense of the Ds and especially the Rs (though there is still a Republican plurality in the state).

The 2022 Arizona primary is less than a year away.

• What does the “Trump impact” look like?

• Former President Donald Trump disses both Gov. Doug Ducey and state Attorney General Mark Brnovich. Will this hurt the latter’s run for Senate?

• Will former TV news anchor Kari Lake’s ascendency last? She has more aggressively embraced Trump than any of the other gubernatorial contenders, though all have tried.

The Think Tank airs on KTAR 92.3 FM on Saturday 6-7 p.m. and Sundays 9-10 p.m.
