Last night’s second presidential debate sets up tonight’s debate between Arizona U.S. Senate candidates John McCain and Ann Kirkpatrick. In what has already been a negative a hard-hitting campaign between the Senate candidates, it is unlikely that this Senate debate will be about issues, it’ll likely be about, wait for it… Donald Trump.
The debate is set to take place tonight at the AZ PBS studios starting at 7:00pm. Make sure you follow us @Cactus_Politics as we live tweet during the debate.
Ann Kirkpatrick spent debate night last night trying to tie John McCain to the Republican nominee whom he has now disavowed.

For his part, John McCain rushed to disavow the Republican nominee after the latest scandal.

John McCain currently leads the race by an average of 16%, so we can surely expect Ann Kirkpatrick to swing for the fences against him.
