-- Giffords makes CD8 a stunning Democratic landside.
-- Munsil soundly defeats Goldwater's name ID.
-- Graf beats big-money Huffman.
-- Right wing (Melvin, Munsil, late surger Griffin) out in force.
-- So long, Ted Downing.
-- Captain Al Melvin uses the Clean Elections system to pull off a big upset against incumbent Toni Hellon. Look for the Southern Arizona delegation to tack right.
-- Ron Drake overcomes Joe Sweeney's name ID to become sacrificial lamb against Raul Grijalva.
-- Munsil at top of ticket could benefit anti-immigrant ballot measures, Prop 107 (anti-partnership/gay amendment initiative).
-- Steve Farley looking good to head for first elected office.
