Hayworth delivers petitions to challenge McCain

Posted: Updated:

Republican J.D. Hayworth filed thousands of petitions Monday to challenge incumbent John McCain for the republican nomination for u-s senate.

Hayworth delivered a box containing more than 11,000 signatures. That's almost twice the number required to qualify for the August 24th primary election ballot.

Hayworth hopes that certification for the ballot will encourage McCain to accept his invitation to debate him.
