JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - It's Judgment Day!

Well, sort of it's state primary election day in Florida and Arizona.

And three household names — Marco Rubio, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and John McCain — are all anxious to see if they will survive to fight another day.

And with all their baggage, they need all the help they can get!

Rubio hopes to face off against his likely Democratic challenger Rep. Patrick Murphy in November.

"Florida cannot afford a hyper-partisan liberal in the United States Senate," Rubio insisted.

"I was as shocked as a lot of people I spoke with about the support that Marco Rubio has given to Donald Trump," Murphy charged.

Meantime, Schultz is in a dogfight to keep her seat in the house.

Rain put a damper on the Sunshine State, so voter turnout could be extra low and that may effect the final tally, too.

Meanwhile, in the Valley of the Sun, McCain and his wife cast their ballots, but McCain's Republican rival says he's too over-the-hill to be on Capitol Hill.

"Do we want to send an 80-year-old man back to Washington, or do we want to have something different?" former Arizona state senator Kelli Ward asked.

Arizona officials just hope for clean results after the FBI confirmed they are investigating a Russian hack into state voter databases in both Arizona and Illinois.

In one county in Arizona, the Feds say hackers accessed voter names, addresses, ID numbers and more back in June.

They say no statewide info was compromised, but the investigation continues.

The FBI has not confirmed whether other states have also been hacked.

But for now the voters are speaking with their ballots.

And we can all get ready to speak out again Nov. 8.
