As his fellow incumbents drown in a tea-party wave, Sen. John McCain somehow remains afloat. On Tuesday, McCain squared off against J. D. Hayworth, a former congressman, in Arizona’s GOP Senate primary; yet Hayworth, a border hawk and talk-radio star, arrived defanged. After lurching hard, and awkwardly, to the right for months, McCain won easily. McCain of course credits his survival to pluck. But luck, too, played a part, as did his boatload of cash. Unlike many of his colleagues, who have faced political neophytes this season, McCain drew a foe with twelve years of experience in the House — a short stint compared with McCain’s nonstop congressional tenure since 1983, but more than enough of a record for opposition researchers to mine. McCain, with ease, punched early: Hayworth was a well-known pork-barrel spender and an acquaintance of Jack Abramoff, the disgraced lobbyist.
