McCain Set to Trounce Tea Party Candidate in Arizona

Another Tea Party candidate is about to crash and burn. 

J. D. Haysworth, the right-wing challenger to Arizona Sen. John McCain, appears to be headed for a big loss in today's primary election.

It's more evidence that the Tea Party doesn't have the political clout to pull off election victories in most places, where incumbents and mainstream candidates keep winning.

In fact, the anti-incumbent rhetoric is more smoke that fire, a noisy protest movement that has fewer followers than conventional wisdom suggests.

The Christian Science Monitor has the election story from Arizona. Their report is here.
