Arizona Senate Debate

The hot topic in an Arizona Senate debate, border security.

It was the only scheduled general election debate for Arizona's U. S. Senate race.

Republican Senator John McCain framed the porousness of America's borders as a national security issue and a human's right concern.

His democratic opponent says McCain's emphasis on border security was only meant to further the senator's careers.

McCain argued that the U.S. must first fight to secure the border before confronting economic realities.
