We caught up with Republican Randy Graf, who lost to Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in 2006, at Jesse Kelly's victory party this evening.
Graf says that Kelly "has a lot to look forward to," but doesn't expect the same type of party fractures that resulted when he won a contested primary in 2006.
"This is a whole different environment," Graf says. "The dynamics are night and day. The resistance we met won't be here this go-round. Nothing from 2006 applies to 2010. This is virgin territory."
