The Myanmar Times - - World -

Key US sen­a­tors John McCain and Marco Ru­bio won their Repub­li­can pri­maries, set­ting up high-pro­file re-elec­tion ef­forts in Novem­ber as their party fights to re­tain con­trol of Con­gress. Fresh­man law­maker Mr Ru­bio of Florida eas­ily de­feated busi­ness ex­ec­u­tive Car­los Beruff, se­cur­ing around 72 per­cent of the vote and set­ting up a clash with House Demo­crat Pa­trick Mur­phy. The closely watched Florida match-up is con­sid­ered to be among those that could tip the Repub­li­can-con­trolled Se­nate into Demo­cratic hands in Novem­ber.
