In their last debate before the election, Senate candidates, Republican Jeff Flake and Democrat Rich Carmona agreed Congress is broken.

The U-S Senate race in Arizona is tightening up, with less than a month to go until Election Day. In the reliably conservative state, the advantage had long been with Republican Congressman Jeff Flake. But, Democrats are trying to capitalize on a shift in momentum.

Clinton has been making the campaign rounds recently, stumping for house and senate candidates.

Republican Jeff Flake and Democrat Richard Carmona laid out distinct differences on most issues during last night's debate in Phoenix.

Democrat Richard Carmona and Republican Jeff Flake held their first of three televised debates in the race to fill retiring John Kyl's Senate seat.

President Obama is giving Congress a “to do” list.

He’s asking lawmakers to help him lower interest rates on mortgages for millions of homeowners.

And he wants to entice U-S companies with holdings overseas to invest that money here at home by ending some tax breaks they enjoy.

The president is urging Congress to pass these and three other components of the Jobs Act he introduced earlier in the year.

The Arizona Congressional delegation was divided over legislation to extend a payroll tax holiday for millions of average workers. 

The payroll bill wasn’t released publicly until last night and many members studied it until late in the evening. The bill puts around one thousand dollars into the pockets of average workers. Arizona’s two Democratic congressmen voted for it as did Republican David Schweikert. But other Republicans, such as Arizona’s Jeff Flake, don’t like that the tax cut isn’t paid for and comes from money that’s intended for the Social Security Trust Fund.
