The Beginning of the End

John McCain talks to his campaign workers in Phoenix Monday night. 
US Sen John McCain (R-AZ) has spent the spring and summer defending himself in his reelection campaign against insurgent Republican JD Hayworth. Monday night McCain met with his campaign staff and volunteers at his headquarters in Phoenix and thanked them for their work this spring. 
The charge seems to have stuck and Hayworth, who is a pit bull when it comes to election campaigning, hasn’t been able to gain much traction against the long serving Senator. 
Back in February, when Hayworth entered the race, I would have predicted a tough campaign that was going to go down to the wire. Now I think McCain’s going to win. Maybe not win big (in the past he’s won with a 20% or more advantage), but he’s gonna win. 
As for JD Hayworth, maybe he’ll go back to his radio gig.
