Ruth McClung is way ahead of perennial candidate Joe Sweeney in the CD7 Republican primary, capturing more than 50 percent of the vote so far.

"It's over already as far as I'm concerned," Sweeney says.

Always persistent, Sweeney has already committed to the 2012 race.

Ruth McClung says the days of Sweeney are over.

"Joe Sweeney didn't represented me as a Republican, ever," she says. "And I'm glad he is no longer representing this party in this district."

She believes she'll get crossover support in her uphill battle against Grijalva.

"I'm stealing from his base because I have many Democratic supporters as well," she says.
