In Alaska, the incumbent Sen. Murkowski trails Sarah Palin-Backed Challenger Miller
When Alaska officials stopped counting ballots at 12:30 a.m. Anchorage time (4:30 a.m ET), 77% of the state's precincts had reported, and Republican primary challenger Joe Miller led by nearly 3,000 votes over incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
That's an amazing race, Joe Miller's fortunes of winning over Murkowski courtesy of Palin!
In Arizona, McCain Fends Off Hayworth, Secures Senate Nomination
Sen. John McCain fended off Republican challenger J.D. Hayworth in the Arizona Senate primary Tuesday, virtually assuring he'll keep his seat in November despite signs earlier in the year that an anti-Washington wave could wipe out one of Capitol Hill's most influential leaders.
JD Hayworth was done in by his inexperience; McCain being a far smarter politician!
In Florida, Scott Shakes Up Florida Governor Race With GOP Primary Win Over McCollum
In a primary day upset, political newcomer Rick Scott narrowly defeated state Attorney General Bill McCollum for the Republican nomination in the Florida gubernatorial race.
I like Scott; he is solidly against ObamaCare; a feather in his cap for the GOP!
Also in Florida, Meek Wins Democratic Senate Primary in Florida, Setting Up 3-Way Faceoff
Rep. Kendrick Meek beat real estate billionaire Jeff Greene for the Democratic Senate nomination in Florida on Tuesday, setting up a dramatic three-way race for an open seat in November.
This is most interesting result, Meek's win almost guarantees Republican Marco Rubio a win in general election in fall, since Democrats now have to split their funding between Charlie Crist, Independent, and Meeks, Democrat! Good for Marco, our next GOP Senator from Florida!
