Ex-Rep. David Bradley has won the Arizona Senate seat in Legislative District 10.

Bradley, of Tucson, said he launched his campaign "to ensure that the generations who follow have a state with a sustainable environment and an education system that prepares them for the constant change that the future brings," according to his campaign website.

During the campaign, the Democrat called for a "perpetual evaluation of government to ensure that it is using our tax dollars prudently." He also wants to push the state legislature to invest in the infrastructure of Arizona's schools and highways.

Bradley also campaigned on a pledge to develop "a flexible and resilient healthcare system that is cost effective and provides access and affordability to our citizens."

Frank Antenori, a Republican who is a retired Army Green Beret and decorated combat veteran, said he was seeking re-election to keep the state on sound financial footing and protect our freedoms, according to his campaign website.

Antenori voted for SB1070 and voted to incentivize teacher and student performance.

Among his supporters - the Arizona Police Association, Arizona State Contractors and the Arizona Citizens Defense League.

Legislative District 10 encompasses Pima County. It covers most of Tucson's east side and a strip of midtown, with its western boundary at Campbell Avenue. The district is bordered on the south generally by Valencia Road.
