Election 2010: McCain up big in Arizona.

Two years after losing the Presidential Election to then-Senator Barack Obama, Senator John McCain is on track to be re-elected to the United States Senate for his fifth and likely last term in office. Senator McCain easily won the Republican Nomination back in August over former Congressman J.D. Hayworth. He has all but actually won the election up to this point.

The last Rasmussen Reports Arizona Senate poll released this morning has Senator McCain up by twenty points over his Democrat opponent, Rodney Glassman, who served as Vice-Mayor of Tucson before resigning to run for United States Senate earlier this year.

Senator McCain is a stalwart of National Defense Conservatism, and has used those credentials to campaign for several other Senate Republican candidates across the Western United States, including Carly Fiorina, Sharron Angle, and Dino Rossi, all of whom are in tight elections against incumbent Democrats.

McCain's campaign hasn't received much media attention from either side, due in part to him having few friends remaining in the Main Stream Media and even fewer friends in the Conservative Blogosphere. Michelle Malkin is an excellent example of the latter, as she gave only the first political contribution of her life to McCain's Republican Primary opponent - J.D. Hayworth, earlier this year.

Any thoughts?
