As John McCain and J.D. Hayworth have dominated Arizona’s political headlines, four Democrats are quietly wrangling for the chance to take on the winner.
John Dougherty is a retired journalist who wants to unleash investigators on Washington.
In a state that’s elected women to Congress and top state leadership, Cathy Eden says she’s poised to shatter the last major glass ceiling in Arizona politics.
Rodney Glassman is a former Tucson City Councilman who’s loaned his $500,000 and says he’s the first candidate in decades to give McCain a well-financed challenge.
And Randy Parraz is a Hispanic community organizer who says he’s uniquely positioned to shine a spotlight on McCain’s transition to being one of the nation’s leading border security hawks.
