McCain saves Senate career with $20m negative campaign against Republican rival

By Tim Montgomerie

Last night John McCain defeated an attempt by former Congressman J D Hayworth to replace him as the Republican Senatorial candidate for Arizona but, despite being his party's presidential candidate just two years ago, he had to spend $20m doing so. These two negative ads are typical of the campaign he fought. Remember, this is a primary within the Republican party.

Hayworth, btw, hardly fought a high-minded campaign either...
