Voters to decide if McCain wins 5th term in Senate

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - Arizona voters will decide Tuesday whether Republican John McCain will win a fifth Senate term against challenger Democrat Rodney Glassman.

The low-key tone of the general election leg of McCain's re-election campaign stands in contrast to the bare-knuckle quality
of his primary race against former six-term congressman J.D. Hayworth.

McCain's campaigning since routing Hayworth has consisted mostly of making appearances on behalf of other candidates, running one statewide TV ad and portraying Glassman as an inexperienced candidate.

Glassman is a 32-year-old former Tucson city councilman who cast himself as an earnest advocate of job creation, public education and alternative energy.
