Democratic Primary for U.S. Senate: Wide Open Race

Posted By on Wed, Jun 23, 2010 at 9:07 AM

Rasmussen brings us numbers on the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Republican John McCain:


Arizona Democrats won’t pick their Senate nominee for another two months, which is just as well since 46% of Likely Democratic Primary Voters in the state are undecided at this point.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of those voters finds former Tucson Vice Mayor Rodney Glassman with 12% support in a virtual tie with ex-State Representative Cathy Eden who earns 11% of the vote.

Labor organizer Randy Parraz picks up nine percent (9%) of primary voters, followed by investigative reporter John Dougherty at eight percent (8%). Fourteen percent (14%) prefer some other candidate in the race.

Dougherty has been pushing for a series of debate around the state prior to the August 24 Democratic Primary, and all the candidates but Glassman have agreed to participate.

That's exactly what we predicted on Monday.

BTW: I'll be joining Arizona Illustrated anchor Bill Buckmaster to interview Dougherty tonight. The show airs at 6:30 p.m. on Channel 6.
