              GOP Has Shot Of Winning Back Seat

              Democrats won this seat in 2008 when the GOP incumbent, Rick Renzi, was indicted on corruption charges and wisely decided not to run again. Ann Kirkpatrick was an easy winner in a year when the Republicans were split and disheartened. They seem more energized this time with Paul Gosar, a dentist who had the preprimary endorsements of Sarah Palin and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. -Ken Rudin
