    McCain defeats conservative primary challenger - Yahoo! News

    McCain, that guy that Republicans wanted for President in 2008 then suddenly didn't want in 2010....beats his crazy tea party challenger in AZ Republican primary.

    went the same way as NY-23 PA-12 and now probably NV Senate along with McCain's victory in AZ and it looks more and more likely that Rubio will get beat by Crist in FL.

    So there ya go.

    Just the competition itself is good...keeps them honest.

    No seat should be safe.

    Can you tell me how you come to that conclusion? Race looks pretty tight to me...

    Well, except for the democratic...lol

    because in florida it isn't going to be the democrat. so given a choice between rubio and crist, it's going to be crist. people keep forgetting he has a 60% approval rating as governor.

    Dems don't have these issues because their candidates are all Gus Hall cookie cuts

    Don't know the details but maybe it was the candidate, maybe he was a worse prospect than McCain, I mean, if I'm looking for another car, I'm not going to trade my old yet reliable 96 Escort in on a Dodge Dart just because it has a few thousand less miles on it.
