McCain Running Scared: Arizona is a Battleground State

Election '08

John McCain, by all indications, may have troubles winning his own home state of Arizona. And this appears to be not because Bob Barr is leeching votes from McCain, but more because of McCain's flip flopping on immigration issues, thus abandoning the Hispanic vote.

Even the McCain camp is now seeing Arizona as a swing state. Heck, they've been viewing it as such since at least June 10th. Man, that has to rankle Senator McCain (R-Irascible). Here's what the story was then, from the Washington Independent:

In a clear signal that Arizona's 10 electoral votes are up for grabs, the McCain campaign has added Arizona to its list of 24 "battleground states" with their 242 electoral votes.
