麦凯恩参议员初选获胜 Senator McCain Wins Primary

25 August, 2010

美国星期二举行的国会中期选举的初选结果显示,资深参议员麦凯恩击败了他的挑战者,而另一场初选则难分胜负。在美国西南部的亚利桑那州,前总统候选人麦凯恩赢得了共和党内的参议院议员候选人提名。他在初选期间的竞争对手是海沃思。海沃思是一个电台节目主持人。这位前众议院议员得到了保守的“茶党运动”的支持。

在位于边远的西北部阿拉斯加州,截至星期三早上,担任过两任美国共和党参议员的穆考斯基落后于米勒。米勒是一个没有什么政治经验的律师,他得到了前州长佩林的支持。米勒领先于穆考斯基的票数不超过2千,与此同时,还有多达1万6千张的缺席选票还有待清点。对这些选票的清点工作要等到下个星期才开始。另外,奥克拉荷马、佛罗里达以及佛蒙特州的选民也在投票站投了票。

U.S. primary election results from Tuesday show one veteran U.S. senator successfully turning back a challenger while another's race is too close to call. In the southwestern state of Arizona, former presidential candidate John McCain won the Republican party's nomination for Senate. He faced J.D. Hayworth, a radio host and former U.S. representative who was endorsed by the conservative Tea Party movement.

In the far northwestern state of Alaska, as of early Wednesday, two-term U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski was trailing Joe Miller, a lawyer with little political experience who was endorsed by former Governor Sarah Palin. Miller was leading Murkowski by fewer than 2,000 votes, with as many as 16,000 absentee ballots left to be counted. The tallying of those votes vvill not begin until next week. Voters also went to the polls in Oklahoma, Florida and Vermont.
