Crandall won election in the 2012 election for Arizona State Senate District 16. He defeated John Fillmore in the August 28, 2012, Republican primary. He won the general election on November 6, 2012.
Redistricting moved incumbent Crandall to District 25, where he would have had to face former Senator Russell Pearce. Instead, he opted to move and seek re-election in District 16. This pitted him against representative John Fillmore in the GOP primary.
