In Arizona, Sen. John McCain faced a test from Kelli Ward, a conservative 33 years McCain’s junior who has suggested his age (he turned 80 on Monday) means he’s too old for a sixth term. The voters of ARIZONA voted on Tuesday and they disagreed with Ward.
Senator John McCain easily defeated his primary challenger, and he advances to the general election in U.S. Senate race.
McCain had a clear lead of 55% to 29% over Ward in a CNN/ORC poll of likely voters two weeks ago — with a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
Sheriff Joe won his primary trouncing 3 competitors. The win puts him into his 7th election as a GOP nominee. Arpaio will face Democrat challenger Paul Penzone in what’s believed to be his toughest campaign in six terms. Meanwhile, an Arizona judge recently ruled that Arpaio’s officers racially profiled Latinos, and the sheriff was found in civil contempt of court for defying court orders in the case. He could possibly face jail time.
