The federal minimum wage may be affecting year’s elections. A new poll shows a majority of Arizonans support an increase. And that could determine how they vote for the state’s U.S. Senate seat. Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports. 


The Arizona secretary of state's office says a voter initiative raising the state's minimum wage from $8.05 per hour to $12 an hour by 2020 has made the November ballot.

A judge is set to hear a challenge to a voter initiative raising the state's minimum wage from $8.05 per hour to $12 an hour by 2020.

The lawsuit filed by the Arizona Restaurant Association against the minimum wage initiative says many or all of the signatures are invalid because of problems with the signature-gatherers or the petition sheets themselves.

The group backing the initiative says they're confident it will survive the challenge.
