PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona voters relegated House Speaker Rusty Bowers to the history books after the conservative Republican crossed former President Donald Trump and refused to back his unsupported claims that he lost in 2020 because of fraud.

Bowers was thoroughly trounced in Tuesday’s GOP primary, losing to a former state senator by nearly 2 to 1 among voters in his district in the eastern Phoenix suburbs. He was trying to move to the Senate after term limits barred another state House run.

Bowers knew his seat was on the line and said he had no regrets for standing up to Trump.

“I would do it again in a heartbeat,” he said Wednesday. “I’d do it 50 times in a row.”

Bowers, who holds impeccable conservative credentials save one, had rejected Trump’s pleas to help him overturn the November 2020 election results that saw him lose in Arizona, the first time a Republican had lost the presidential race in the state since Bill Clinton’s 1996 reelection victory.
