Race Summary

Rep. Shadegg hasn't been challenged much since coming to Congress in 1994. But his lowest winning percentage came in 2006, and the DCCC is now spending money here -- a clear sign it thinks it has a chance. Still, this northern-Phoenix district has a Republican lean and John McCain is at the top of the ticket, giving Shadegg the edge.
