Can Richard Carmona Beat Jeff Flake?

Carmona, the former Surgeon General, is running in a state that's been one of the most unfavorable for Democrats in recent years, but he'd like to change that -- and polls say he's got a shot.

He's raising money and blitzing television sets with advertisements, which are also good signs for Carmona.

Of course, the Flake name has a bit of a history in Arizona (see: Snowflake), and he's been a Congressman for more than a decade now.

This morning's question: can Carmona beat Flake?
