PHOENIX -- Sen. John McCain expressed confidence he will win a fifth term as he dropped off his primary election ballot at a polling place in uptown Phoenix Tuesday morning.
McCain, accompanied by his wife Cindy, arrived at Madison Camelview Elementary School a few hours after the polls opened.
He spoke briefly to reporters: "It isn't over until it's over. We're looking forward to moving forward after tonight to the general election and working just as hard as we did in the primary and taking nothing for granted."

Eff McCain. The creepy wife and daughter quickly shut up about that gay marriage stuff. I do hope JD wins.
Yea, McCain, we figured you weren’t taking anything for granted when you spent $20 million to destroy your opponent. So much for your campaign finance reform. What an evil man you are McCain
Did he forget all the years he took us or plain forgot us for granted?
The Democrat that runs against Juan in November can expect a contribution from me.
My wife and I got into a discussion the other day on whether we should vote for the democrat over McCain in November. I know it sounds crazy but McCain is a very dangerous man. Just think of how many people and media outlets (including fox) he got support from. McCain will single handly destroy the conservative agenda.
Are you are using Firefox? One parentheses is wacked... happens to me too. Plus wacked question marks at times.
Lets hope that JD pulls out the upset.
Probably worse than Arizona re-electing him...is that so many alleged “conservatives” supported McCain and attacked JD
Arizona does not realize that John McCain, once returned to the Senate, will work to do away with AZ SB 1070. You betcha
I guess if he were he wouldn’t have shelled out $20 M of his father-in-laws fortune.
McCain is evil. Every lib paper, magazine, Soros polling companies, AZ TV, national TV rallied around him. He is arguably worse than Obama.
McCain will be weakened with very little money leftover. Since the Dems are expected to lose some Senate seats, McCain's seat will be ripe for the salvaging.
Hayworth supporters won't support him, and Dems sure as Hell ain't going to "crossover" for him. I really see McCain losing his seat in the general.
Unfortunately though, he's going to win the primary.
JD is a good man. It makes me sick. McCain is so devious.
Does JD have a chance? Sure hope so.
If Juan wins and the democrat running against him is weak perhaps conservatives should vote for the democrat then hammer that person for 6 years and ultimately get a true conservative in there.
McLame’s votes won’t be reliable anyway.
What would be worse. A Democrat Senator from Arizona or another 6 years of McCain? The republicans will pick up other seats.
Putting another leftist in the senate would be worse. I would do what I did in 2008, hold my nose and vote for him.
Noooooo that is not a wise decision... only a fool would suggest such an approach.. McCain may not be perfect but he is better than any commiecrat. Quit being stupid...
McCain is a leftist.
From what I have seen since January 2009, I would say the DemocRAT...but not by much considering who is the so-called Republican.
Remember in November: Defeat the ‘RATS, then the RINO’s.(To do the latter, you must do the former FIRST.)
I think I would vote for the Dem. Mccain is a Dem in leadership position in the GOP.
I wish Juan McAmnesty had hammered the messiah with half the zeal he’s directed at JD.
OK, you convinced me.
Now: How do we ensure that McCain will vote our way on ANYTHING that we care about such as immigration?
We’ve lost the vote anyway. Although I tend to agree with you in principle I honestly don’t see as much of a down side to this gamble as you do.
All that matters are the votes. McCain won’t deliver. SO what’s the difference? At least with a dem we have a clear target to isolate and attack.
If McCain prevails today, then you should vote for the Tea Party candidate that will surely run against McCain in November.
If that helps deliver the seat to the Democrats, then so be it.
What’s worse, a Democrats who votes with his party, or a Republican who votes against his?
Either way, the votes are the same. But at least a Democrat doesn’t give the Democrats ‘bipartisan’ cover when he votes with them.
FUAZ! I have no sympathy for them. Let them be over run by Mexicans. They ask for it by re-electing McCain.
dem or RINO what’s the difference? McCain should not be rewarded for his treachery
There is no Demonrat conservative enough who conceivably could run against Juan who I could vote for. Of course, not being in AZ, I won’t have to consider that, thank goodness.
The differenc is with McCain you have a liberal with a high leadership position in the GOP.
Even Beck’s sidekick Pat Gray is against Hayworth. Sickening. He said he wouldn’t cry if McCain wins. Just doesn’t like Hayworth. Well, I’ll cry for him.
HELLO....what happens in the intervening time.....??? Quit being so short sighted with your views....it’s a continuing fight...
I second that. McCain is an evil man. Just look at how he ran this campaign vs. the presidential one.
Vote McCain in November... hoping Juan croaks and Jan Brewer appoints his successor?
OK, OK, I accept your flames. And I’m not from AZ so I’m not voting one way or the other either, never fear.
The question still remains, and not just for McCain. We need to put more pressure on RINOs. But how? How can we get McCain to forgo amnesty, for instance? That is important.
I guess it all depends on the number of seats we have after November.
If he had spent his money to Obama as he has to defeat Hayworth, this nation might not be in the mess we are today.
This Senate seat is in the bag for the Democrats. JD, if he wins the primary, is not a strong general election candidate. McCain will be weakened after this primary fight and Dems will hover over him like vultures.
With the support of SB 1070, and most in AZ against Amnesty...JD has a very good chance to win the general election. Contrary to Liberal RINO myth...being tough on illegals actually brings in crossover votes.
It will take him no time at all to get back to his favorite pastime. Being the Darling little pet of the Leftwing media.
Beck is an employee of Saudis over at Fox and he is a profiteer off conservatives. Rush is the real deal. Hannity is not in Rush’s league but he is not a fake like Beck.
Beck did a lot of that moral equivalnce sh*t by saying “well a pox on Democrats and Repubs cause they are all the same.” Beck and his pal O’Reilly are also anti-birthers to keep their Saudi bosses happy and cause they are both whores.
Savoy your victory McCain tonight. You beat a weak man. BUT know this—the American People have your number now. You are no longer the media darling. You had a hand in getting Obama in to the White House—you are almost as guilty as he is. If you won, you would have done many of the same spend, spend, spend policies as the O-man. At least we are leaving Iraq—you would have had us there for 100 years.
If JD loses can he run as an independent? McCain spent 20 million on the primary - how much can he have left for the general?
That state is the gateway to the other states.So it is important to hold the line in Arizona.
You mean a different one, besides McCain?
