In the weeks since the nominating conventions, a lot has happened. Trump royally blew the immediate post-convention period and re-shuffled his staff. U.S. athletes, for the most part, had a strong showing at the Olympics. And many states have held primary elections for state and federal offices. There are about two more weeks of primaries left. (Except for Louisiana which does not really have a primary election, and a special primary election for one district in New York, the last primaries will be held on September 13. ) This week, we have the Senate primaries in two states that are seen as potential Senate battlegrounds in November: Arizona and Florida.
In Arizona, the Democratic candidate — Representative Ann Kirkpatrick — is running unopposed. The potentially interesting primary is the Republican primary. Senator John McCain is facing three opponents — one of whom has semi-withdrawn, urging voters to support whichever candidate is most likely to defeat McCain.
