While much of the race has focused on the 2016 problems, political newcomer Steve Gaynor is spending big money attacking Reagan on other issues.

Gaynor's campaign has called Reagan the worst Secretary of State on modern Arizona history and they have accused her, "allowing illegal immigrants vote in federal elections in Arizona."

However, Reagan says that's false, that there have been no cases where someone who is not an American citizen has cast a ballot in the state.
