Shadegg Gets a Strong Challenger In Arizona

Given John McCain's ever decreasing popularity, the strong favorability of Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano, and Rick Renzi's continued involvement in scandals, Arizona could be a strong area for Democratic gains in 2008.

Now the one Republican they thought was safe appears to be in trouble. John Shadegg who only sits in a district with a +6 R Cook Partisan Index is facing a strong challenge from attorney Bob Lord, who raised $137,000 in the first quarter. Shadegg has yet to report but started the quarter with under $25,000 cash on hand. Over 13 percent of the district is comprised of veterans who one can imagine are not too happy with some of Shadegg's recent votes.
