Jim Nintzel, the senior writer at the Tucson Weekly, knows his local politics. In this candid chat, he sits down with Arizona Public Media's political reporter Christopher Conover to take a closer look at the hotly contested Congressional District 8 race, this year's dearth of strong Democratic candidates, and how the John McCain campaign spent $20 million to take down McCain's rival, Republican challenger J.D. Hayworth.

Primary voting occurs on Tuesday, August 24th, 2010.
