WELCOME BACK, MAVERICK:

Primary voters back the familiar: Insurgents falter; McCain wins (Matt Viser, August 25, 2010. Boston Globe)

Established candidates from both major parties struck back in Senate primaries last night as former GOP presidential nominee John McCain bagged a Tea Party challenger in Arizona while President Obama’s pick beat a self-made billionaire in the Democratic race in Florida.

McCain easily defeated former congressman J.D. Hayworth, taking about twice as many votes as the challenger with 30 percent of precincts reporting.


Now he can ditch all the nativist nonsense.
