Former Tucson, Ariz., City Councilman Rodney Glassman has won Arizona's Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, and next faces a much tougher challenge against incumbent Sen. John McCain in November.

Democrats chose Glassman on Tuesday from a field of four relatively unknown candidates. Glassman, 32, was considered the front-runner after raising more than $1 million for the race, including $500,000 of his own fortune.

He faces an uphill fight against McCain, who easily won the GOP nomination after being challenged from the right.

Glassman has five degrees from the University of Arizona and served two years on the Tucson Council before resigning to run for Senate.

He touts as his accomplishments a first-of-its-kind ordinance requiring new businesses to use rainwater for at least half of their landscaping water.
