Ex-KFYI Host J.D. Hayworth Loses Senate Primary To John McCain
August 25, 2010 at 4:28 AM (PT)
Former CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFYI-A/PHOENIX afternoon host J.D. HAYWORTH lost his Republican primary challenge to incumbent Sen. JOHN MCCAIN (R-AZ) TUESDAY (8/24).
Returns through the night showed MCCAIN comfortably ahead in the voting.
HAYWORTH, a former Congressman, left KFYI in JANUARY to make the run, attempting to position himself as a "Tea Party" outsider. His campaign encountered trouble with the surfacing of an infomercial he had taped in 2007 for NATIONAL GRANTS CONFERENCES offering "hundreds of billions" in "free government money."
