by Ken Rudin, Political Junkie Blog, NPR
It wasn't pretty, and it wasn't without cost. But Sen. John McCain, seeking a fifth term, trounced former Rep. J.D. Hayworth in the Republican primary in Arizona.
With about 93 percent of the vote counted, McCain had more than 56 percent of the vote, compared to slightly less than 32 percent for Hayworth and 11.7 percent for a third candidate, Jim Deakin.
