Incumbent Republican Sen. John McCain defeated challenger J.D. Hayworth in Tuesday's Arizona primary election.

McCain took 56 percent of the statewide vote, and nearly the same in Pima County. Hayworth received 32 percent of the vote, Jim Deakin 11 percent.

McCain now faces off in November against former Tucson City Councilman Rodney Glassman. Glassman won with support from nearly 47 percent of Democratic voters.

In the contested primary for the Republican nomination in U.S. Congressional District 8, Jesse Kelly won with nearly 48 percent of the vote. His nearest competitor, veteran state legislator Jonathan Paton, received 42 percent of the vote.

Pending tabulation of as many as 13,000 lingering vote-by-mail ballots, Kelly looks poised to take on incumbent Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

In the District 26 House race, Republican incumbent Vic Williams and challenger Terri Proud face Democratic incumbent Nancy Young Wright in a three-way race for two seats. Williams received 41.3 percent of votes cast, Proud 31.4 percent, and Wade McLean 26.8 percent.

In the contest for governor, incumbent Jan Brewer easily won the Republican nomination with more than 81 percent of the vote. She'll face outgoing Democratic Attorney General Terry Goddard, who claimed 97 percent of his party's vote in the uncontested primary. Both gubernatorial candidates received similar totals in Pima County.

The Republican and Democratic primaries for attorney general remain too close to call. Only 1,300 votes separate Democratic hopefuls David Lujan and Felecia Rotellini.

Outgoing Republican Secretary of Public Instruction Tom Horne leads former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas by less than 400 votes.

Democratic state legislator Chris Deschene faces Republican incumbent Ken Bennett in the race for secretary of state.

Democratic candidate for state treasurer Andrei Cherny will face Republican Doug Ducey.

State Sen. John Huppenthal won the Republican primary for secretary of public instruction. He'll face Democratic challenger Penny Kotterman.
