Ohio’s Gov. John Kasich may be riding a wave of newfound popularity in the national polls of Republican primary voters. But in the Arizona primary on Tuesday, he came fourth in a three-person race.

Kasich won 52,462 votes (10.0%), with 94.4% of precincts reporting. That was significantly behind Sen. Marco Rubio who won 70,515 votes (13.4%), largely due to early voting.

According to the Arizona Secretary of State’s office, early voting in the state’s presidential preference primary began on Feb. 24 — nearly a full three weeks before Rubio dropped out of the presidential race on Mar. 15. Early voting only ended Mar. 18 in Arizona.
