|Description|| Arizona Democrats are sensing a growing opportunity to capitalize on Republican divisions in the state's 2010 Senate race, but they may also have to contend with a contested primary of their own. |
Former Rep. J.D. Hayworth's challenge to longtime GOP Sen. John McCain is likely to tie up the incumbent's resources and attention until the Aug. 24 primary, giving Democrats hope that with a strong, well-funded challenger, they could be positioned to create a competitive two-month sprint to the general election for the 2008 GOP presidential nominee.
With that in mind, excitement is growing around the possible candidacy of Nan Stockholm Walden, an attorney. She and her husband Richard also own a 7,000 acre pecan farm south of Tucson.
