This race was off the radar until recently, when polls began to show it as extremely close. That's why I've added it at the last minute. Here's what Al Franken says about Richard Carmona:
He’s a combat-decorated Army veteran, the first in his family to graduate from college, a former trauma surgeon and deputy sheriff, and the 17th Surgeon General of the United States. This is a guy who once rappelled from a helicopter to rescue a paramedic stranded on a mountain. They don’t make ‘em any tougher.
And as I’ve spent time with him on the campaign trail, I’ve seen that he would be a force in the Senate. He’s got great ideas for creating jobs, balancing the budget in a responsible way, and fixing our broken immigration system.
The pundits didn’t think a Democrat could win in Arizona this year. But the pundits didn’t know about Rich Carmona.
