A new state poll shows Republican Arizona Senator John McCain could be in for a tight race to keep his seat in the U.S. Senate. As Arizona Public Radio’s Aaron Granillo reports, next year’s election may be closer than expected.

A new report says Republicans have an edge in Arizona’s 2016 U.S. Senate race. But the state’s five-term incumbent John McCain still faces challenges from Democrats as well as from within his own party. Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports.


Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu has entered the race for the Republican nomination in Arizona's 1st Congressional District.

Babeu announced his candidacy Monday for the open seat held by Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick. She is running in the 2016 race for the Senate seat held by Republican John McCain.

Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett and rancher and businessman Gary Kiehne also are seeking the Republican nomination, while former state legislator Tom O'Halleran is running for the Democratic nomination.
