Politics dominated 2016, a year when Arizona was considered a swing state for the first time in recent memory. Republican President-elect Donald Trump and his running mate were frequent visitors to the state.

- After two decades in office, Pima County Supervisor Ray Carroll retires. [3-2016-presidential-candidates-composite-spot]: https://media.azpm.org/master/image/2016/3/21/spot/3-21-16cadidates.jpg
