Democrats vie under the radar for McCain’s seat

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.
