Ed Pastor won the Democratic primary election for the seat held for 30 years by U.S. Rep. Morris K. Udall, virtually ensuring that Arizona will send its first Latino congressman to Washington. The former Maricopa County supervisor will meet the Republican winner, former Yuma County Supervisor Pat Conner, in a Sept. 24 election. But, with Democrats holding a 2-1 majority in the district, many consider Pastor a shoo-in.
