Tracking Key Primary Races: Join the Live Chat

Sen. John McCain spent $20 million dollars in his fight against conservative talk show host J.D. Hayworth. Will that be enough to win McCain a fifth term? We'll have the primary results in that race and many others across the U.S. tonight on 360°.

    Is there a strong Democratic candidate in Arizona? I have not kept up with that race. The last Democrats I remember from Arizona were DeConcini and Mo Udall

    I thought the term maverick was a bad thing? That is at least what I learned when I was in school

    Good 'ol Webster's Dictionary says "maverick" is defined as political independent. Hmmm...still confusing to me as his opinions have changed over the years. With these changes, he's having to fight tonight to stay in this.

    Great discussion everyone. Hope everyone has a great evening! Thanks John for filling in for Anderson.

    I am sure he ended the "Maverick" idea as he is afraid he will be put to pasture!

    It seems every time Democrats control Congress and the Presidency, the public realizes that they can't govern very quickly and correct the situation by electing Republicans.

    I find it so hilarious how people go on camera proudly saying one thing and later they come back and say.."who me?? No! I'm no Maverick..never said I was" lol. Yes you did, sir.

    Anxiously awaiting the results from the Democrat Primary for
    Senate in Arizona – which one of our 4 candidates will finally send McCain home???

  13. Heather - Spokane, WA

    John McCain's war cry was the he was a maverick, and now he is saying that he never called himself one??? right.............

    August 24, 2010 at 10:53 pm |
  14. Sharon Hastings

    Well, I guess the Maverick thing didn't work too well for McCain. But it's laughingly ridiculous for him to deny that now. Does he think we're all idiots??

    August 24, 2010 at 10:53 pm |
  15. Dion

    McCain is not so "mavericky" now.Seems he is more tea party.

    August 24, 2010 at 10:51 pm |

    Rather ironic that Republican is Red. As in deficit spending, as in a deficit of ideas.

    Newt Gingrich and Bill McCollum seem to have much in common

    It was enlightening to hear Ms Sherrod talk about her work with Mr Spooner, enightening as to dept of agriculture policy, financing for farmers. It is ashame that she is leaving at this pt the dept of agriculture. Reassuring to learn that she was offered a choice of the new job or her orignal job, director of rural development in GA. That is a move in a more conciliatory direction.

    Rick Scott just came out of nowhere. He lives in my town and I never heard of him prior to his running. Yes, he is wealthy and conservative but I think he has some skeletons in his closet that he will have to explain.

    Red states, blue states...now, purple states?! Interesting observation...

  21. Nancy in Oregon

    I hope so, Michael Armstrong Sr. One part of me sees that, while another part of me distrusts her. It's of no consequence, though...only a feeling I have.

    August 24, 2010 at 10:43 pm |
  22. Nina

    Nancy... it would be difficult to work for an employer if you plan to sue them 🙂

    August 24, 2010 at 10:42 pm |
  23. Dion

    Never really cared for McCollum when he was in Congress. He was part of the Gingrich/Delay cabal.

    August 24, 2010 at 10:41 pm |
  24. Michael Armstrong Sr.

    @ Nancy in Oregon Thats whats so great about Shirley she's unpredictable with lot's of class .

    August 24, 2010 at 10:41 pm |
  25. Dion

    It is a shame that someone in the administration had a knee jerk reaction in reacting to Fox News and Briebart on the Sherrod story.
    the decision to let her go happened way to fast it seems. This was disappointing.

    August 24, 2010 at 10:39 pm |
  26. Nancy in Oregon

    Good evening, Nina. I doubt she can, honestly, but I get a feeling that there's something else going on in her. I don't know what. I don't quite get her or 'read' her, somehow. Just don't think it's all plain and simple somehow.

    Understanding that no one really cares, but another mention should be on the Vermont governor's race – three-way ties don't happen that often.

  28. Heather - Spokane, WA

    I would sure Brietbart. He caused her all of this trouble and got her fired from her job. He claims it was not against her when clearly it was or else he wouldn't have shown the video of her. I say sick him Shirley! I have no doubt she would win the defirmation lawsuit!

    August 24, 2010 at 10:38 pm |
  29. Samantha Rowley - Nashville, TN

    The on-screen title said Sherrod v. Breitbart..think she's still thinking of a lawsuit against him?

    August 24, 2010 at 10:37 pm |
  30. Nina

    Nancy.. good evening. How could Shirley Sherrod trust the agency after what they did?

    August 24, 2010 at 10:36 pm |
  31. Kenya

    Godspeed to Ms. Shirley in her decision and her future. Her compassion can be of greater substance elsewhere.

    Not an easy situation.

    @Dion – Dont forget Chris Christie! The current governor of New Jersey!

    He can definitely be the star from the republican side.

    Chris has been doing great things in NJ and he gets bi-partisan support, just that easy!

  34. Nancy in Oregon

    Good evening, people. I can't quite figure out Shirley Sherrod now.

    August 24, 2010 at 10:35 pm |
  35. Sharon Hastings

    I don't blame Shirley Sherrod for rejecting the offer of employment. Can you imagine what she has been through? That was a pretty traumatic experience and you can tell that it has left her with a bitter taste. The whole thing stunk.

    August 24, 2010 at 10:34 pm |
  36. Lori, CA

    Great question John. I am sure it would be hard for Shirley to work there even though the needs of the community are great.
