    Why John McCain isn't in more trouble for Arizona Senate primary

    Sen. John McCain's record as an immigration reformer doesn't seem to match a state that's taking a hardline stance on illegal immigration. But the senator is managing to fend off a challenge from his right ahead of Tuesday's GOP Senate primary in Arizona.

    The whispers in the spring were that Sen. John McCain, the Republican Party's presidential candidate in 2008, was vulnerable to an upset from the right when he sought reelection to the Senate this year. Now, in the home stretch toward Arizona’s primary election on Tuesday, such talk has largely faded.

    Senator McCain commands a solid lead in polls over former US Rep. J.D. Hayworth, who defines himself as a candidate of the "tea party" movement, and Jim Deakin, a political newcomer who is in third place.

    In state where a crackdown on illegal immigration is widely backed by voters, McCain's record of working with Democrats to redesign US immigration policy might not go down easy.

    It probably helps McCain that Arizona's Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, who is riding a wave of popularity for her tough stance on illegal immigration, has been campaigning alongside him.
    ========================================

    What does this reveal about Jan Brewer? She's sitting on the same NEOCON TRAIN as Sarah Palin?

    Will we ever break out of this 2-Party Oligarchy that refuses to defend us and secure our borders and stop the illegal alien invasion?
