PHOENIX - Rep. Jeff Flake Tuesday defeated businessman Wil Cardon in the GOP primary to replace retiring Republican Sen. Jon Kyl.
Flake defeated Cardon 70 percent to 20 percent in early returns.
The wealthy Cardon launched an expensive and unexpectedly feisty campaign against Flake for the nomination. Although Cardon in the past month had backed off his aggressive television ads and taken a more positive tone, the campaign had been marked by accusations of hypocrisy, broken promises and flip-flopping positions on the emotional issue of immigration.
On Nov. 6, Flake will face Democrat Richard Carmona, a former surgeon general under President George W. Bush
Arizona hasn't elected a Democrat to the Senate since Dennis DeConcini won his third term in 1988, but Democrats are hoping the costly primary attacks will give Carmona a better shot at the seat.
