Experience is the key difference separating the two Republicans.
PHOENIX (AP) - The race between the two candidates vying for the Republican nomination in Arizona's 5th Congressional District in southeastern Maricopa County boils down largely to a difference in experience.
Former U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon and ex-Arizona House Speak Kirk Adams have offered similar platforms.
So experience is the key difference separating the two Republicans.
Salmon touts his experience and connections in Congress, while Adams promotes himself as having none of the entanglements from a career in Washington.
Salmon and Adams are seeking the Republican nomination in the race to fill the seat now held by U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake.
Flake is a Republican running for a U.S. Senate seat.
The 5th District is heavily Republican. The winner of the Aug. 28 primary in District 5 will face Democrat Spencer Morgan.
