    PHOENIX - Former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth had a much-needed opportunity Friday night to refocus Arizona's Republican Senate primary on incumbent John McCain, and he came out swinging. McCain, Hayworth and political newcomer Jim Deakin squared off Friday in the first of two televised debates before Arizona's Aug. 24 Republican primary. "It's really sad to see John McCain, who should be revered as a statesman, basically reduced to a political shape-shifter," he said, then turned to his opponent. "John, you've changed positions so much in this campaign maybe we'll have to set up an extra podium for you depending on...

    O.K., I've tried all morning to get the pulse of last night's Arizona GOP Senate Debate, with little success. Found one article but "copyright complaints" prevented me from posting it here. I checked C-Span's website. Doesn't seem to be any re-runs today or tonight. So, Freepers, from what you've seen, heard and read, who won last night's debate? From what I gathered, Deakin fumbled badly; especially in his closing remarks. Sounds like J.D. got some good shots at McCain's hypocrisy. But.... I dunno. Comments anyone?

  • AZ-Sen. 2010: McCain, Brewer top opponents in latest poll (McCain 47, Hayworth 36, Deakin 7)

    U.S. Sen. John McCain and Gov. Jan Brewer continue to hold leads over their opponents, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll. In a June 16 poll of 707 likely Republican primary voters, McCain is leading the three-way primary with 47 percent support. Former Congressman J.D. Hayworth stands at 36 percent, while veteran Jim Deakin has 7 percent. While the poll shows a continuing lead — McCain was at 52 percent to Hayworth’s 40 percent last month — a longstanding political rule-of-thumb indicates incumbents are vulnerable when they slip below the 50 percent mark.

    The scene is the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut . The year 2000. The congressman has $100 chips stacked high, having a grand time at the crap table. He likes to gamble and isn't afraid to show some temper when he loses. Along for the ride are his campaign manager and one of the two biggest lobbyist handing out campaign money from various Indian tribes who was also a 20 year friend of the legislator. By now we've all heard about the money J.D. Hayworth received from an Indian tribe by way of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who was one...

After spending two years on the presidential campaign trail, in recent months McCain has been crisscrossing Arizona to reconnect with state voters, The Arizona Republic reported Sunday. McCain has retooled his Web site, opened a Senate campaign office in Phoenix and raised $3.6 million for his war chest, the Republic reported. "I'm very pleased with the response that I've gotten when traveling around the state, so I'm confident I'll do well,"...
