In the Democratic primary in the Alaska Elections 2010, Democrat Soctt t. McAdams clinched the nomination. However McAdams is expected to have a tough fight against Miller since Alaska is seen as a Republican state.
Elsewhere, in Arizona Sen. John McCain easily clinched the Republican nomination once again. He is on his way for re-election in November. McCain spent about $20 million in his re-election primary bid.
Scott's financial might and criticism of his opponent as a typical tax-raising politician proved too much for McCollum, a former congressman, in the bitter GOP gubernatorial race. Scott spent $39 million in blanketing the state with TV ads that resonated with GOP voters. He was seen as a "conservative outsider" who could run state government like an efficient business and reduce taxes. He overcame accusations that he was in charge when his former hospital conglomerate paid $1.7 billion to settle federal Medicare fraud charges.
In other primary races, Rep. Kendrick Meek clinched the Democrat Senate nomination in Florida, as well as other incumbent Republican and Democratic members of Congress withstood primary challenges.
