John McCain

The US senate’s refusal to consider President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee could hurt Senator John McCain’s chances at re-election. That’s according to a new poll out today. Arizona Public Radio’s Aaron Granillo reports.


A poll conducted earlier this month shows a shift in the race for Arizona’s U.S. Senate seat. Democratic Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick now holds a slight lead over incumbent Republican Senator John McCain. Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports.


Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward is set to formally resign her seat to focus on her Republican primary challenge to U.S. Sen. John McCain.

Ward says in a letter to Senate President Andy Biggs that she will vacate her seat on Tuesday. The Dec. 2 letter says she plans to devote her energy to defeating the five-term senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee.

Ward is a physician from Lake Havasu City whose current district spans much of Mohave and all of La Paz counties.
