Here is the latest Arizona news from The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain is calling for a Watergate-style congressional panel to investigate the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Arizona Republican tells "CBS This Morning" he believes the unanswered questions surrounding events at Benghazi on Sept. 11 require such a select committee. McCain accused the Obama administration of making misleading statements.

CHICAGO (AP) — A Phoenix-area man and his brother who bilked elderly Chicago residents out of more than $750,000 in home equity are each going to federal prison for 14 years. A federal judge sentenced John Sullivan of Surprise and Daniel Sullivan of Michigan yesterday. They were convicted last fall. Authorities say one woman killed herself after John Sullivan claimed to have a romantic interest in her and then defrauded her mother of her life's savings of almost $600,000.

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett says there are more than 324,000 early and provisional ballots statewide that still need to be processed and counted. Bennett's office says those voters who cast conditional provisional ballots at polling places have until the end of today to return to their county election office to show proper identification.

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona wildlife managers say an annual survey shows the population of endangered Mount Graham red squirrels seems to be holding relatively steady. About 214 squirrels were surveyed this year in the Pinaleno Mountains in southeastern Arizona. That's a slight decrease from last year. Wildlife managers say the species' recent population trends have been most affected by habitat loss due to fire and insect infestations and poor cone crops caused by drought.
