Learn about Arizona's Senate race with John McCain

Sen. John McCain faced his little-known challengers the other night in a debate that saw the four-term Republican attacked for his lack of focus on the interests of his Arizona constituents.

Democratic candidate Rodney Glassman said, "My priority is Arizona, not winning the hearts and minds of the Afghanis," and somewhat unsurprisingly, Green Party candidate Jerry Joslyn said, "I don’t feel comfortable with Mr. McCain staying in Washington."

McCain, demonstrating admirable self-control and mental acuity, refrained from looking at his watch throughout the proceedings, and managed to remember the names of his opponents. As they say at the rallies: "Six more years! Six more years!"

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

“He has the worst attendance record in the U.S. Senate because he was too busy promoting himself.”
