The latest poll of the Arizona GOP presidential primary by CNN/Time:

Mitt Romney holds a narrow lead over Rick Santorum in Arizona with a week to go before the state’s Feb. 28 primary, according to a new TIME/CNN/ORC poll.

Romney is backed by 36% of likely Republican voters in the state, a slight edge over Santorum’s 32% in the winner-take-all scramble for the state’s 29 convention delegates. Newt Gingrich lags in third with 18%, while Ron Paul nabs 6%. The survey, conducted Feb. 17–20, has a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points.

Tomorrow night's GOP presidential debate in Arizona is the only debate scheduled before the Arizona and Michigan primaries, as well as the March 6 Super Tuesday contests.
