The U.S. Senate race between Democrat Richard Carmona and Republican Jeff Flake is starting to get some national attention, as the Washington Post asked itself this week, "Can Democrat Richard Carmona win the Arizona Senate race?"
Maybe not, they said.
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?
