Pima County Superintendent of Public Instruction Linda Arzoumanian cruised to victory over challenger Mace Bravin, having captured roughly 54.3 percent of the vote.
"I have a lot of work that I'm working on, and I want to be able to accomplish it," Arzoumanian said.
In her upcoming term, Arzoumanian said she hoped to improve STEM education in Pima County with the help of Gov. Jan Brewer and the Department of Education.
The Republican Arzoumanian faces no Democratic opposition in the general election.
