Posted at 12:09 PM, Apr 15, 2016

Incumbent Sen. John McCain appears to have some stiff competition in his bid for a sixth Senate term this November. 

According to a Rocky Mountain Poll released Friday from the Phoenix-based Behavior Research Center, McCain and Democratic challenger Ann Kirkpatrick are in a statistical tie, with each having 42 percent of the vote.

The remaining 16 percent of voters remain undecided.

The poll surveyed 564 registered Arizona voters statewide between April 4 and April 11. It has an overall margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percent. 

McCain announced his reelection bid in April 2015, with Kirkpatrick declaring her candidacy a month later.
