Why is John McCain Spending so Much Campaign Cash?
For some reason, many here at Red State and elsewhere seem to feel that JD Hayworth’s challenge to John McCain is a lost cause, and are determined to jump on McCain’s bandwagon while simultaneously disregarding his penchant for turning on the very folks who support him. Their reasoning leaves me significantly puzzeled, but they are welcome to their opinions. I am curious about other considerations than | Read More »
Jim Deakin, AZ citizen candidate for US Senate hits it out of the park in debate against McCain & hayworth
Image that you first at bat in professional baseball is in the world series facing a Cy Young award winning pitcher with a MVP catcher standing behind you. That does not even come close to the pressure faced by Jim Deakin in the Senate debates with sitting Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain and former Congressman and professional media man JD Hayworth. I cannot | Read More »
Whose Responsible This?
America is in a meltdown. After the housing bubble burst, leaving us in a heap of crap, it seems that both the Bush administration and the Obama administration took steps to make a bad situation worse. Funnelling hundreds of billions of dollars into a ‘stimulus’ that wasn’t was only the first step down the path to ‘WTF?’. After that it was Cash for Clunkers, Stimulus | Read More »
NY-19: Nan Hayworth and the GOP Comeback
You see, we lost big in ’06, but we didn’t lose by much. There are opportunities literally everywhere for the Republican party to take back and in many cases capture for the first time in a long time, Congressional seats that swung just a little bit Democrat in the last few cycles. The 19th Congressional district of New York is a prime example of this: | Read More »
Hayworth closing in on McCain
Rasmussen is out with a new poll showing JD Hayworth gaining on John McCain. McCain’s 22 point lead in January has now shrunk to just five points, 47%-42%, of likely Republican primary voters. Perhaps more important, this is the second Rasmussen poll in the past month showing McCain below the 50% threshold – dangerous territory for an incumbent. If you ask me, McCain is self-destructing | Read More »
New Ras Poll: Hayworth down by 5 in AZ-Sen race
http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections2/election_2010/election_2010_senate_elections/arizona/election_2010_arizona_republican_primary_for_senate Just more evidence that people don’t want McCain, now I just want to know why the editors of Red State are not jumping onboard the Hayworth express when they endorse questionable people such as Rand Paul and Mike Castle. Lets get it together and get this guy to D.C. McCain is our only roadblock.
Rasmussen: Hayworth closing in on McCain
Rasmussen Reports is out with a new poll showing JD Hayworth gaining significant ground on John McCain. Rasmussen finds a mere 7 point lead (48%-41%) for McCain. In January, Rasmussen had McCain ahead by 22 points (53%-31%), so this new poll represents a 15 point swing in Hayworth’s favor. More troubling for McCain is that he is under 50 percent – generally considered a sign of an incumbent | Read More »
For those of you who think J.D. Hayworth is Unelectable…
Look at this. “The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely Arizona GOP Primary voters shows McCain ahead 48% to 41%. Three percent (3%) favor another candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided.” If Hayworth loses by .5% because he didn’t have sufficient funding from the conservative base, you will know who to blame.
JD Hayworth: Why I Will Challenge John McCain
In 2000, Senator John McCain asked me to campaign on his behalf for president. I was honored to do so. I remember traveling to South Carolina to act as a one-man truth squad and doing countless television interviews for John. It was a tremendous experience and, as we all know, John came up short. But as always, he fought hard for what he thought was | Read More »
Newt, Steele… Sadly Out Of Touch With Mainstream Conservatives.
Newt Gingrich, who had staunchly defended Dede Scozzafava’s bid for Representative of New York’s 23rd District, seems to be unaware of the reality which has been manifesting itself all over the country with regards to the leadership of the the Republican party, which is this: THERE ISN’T ANY. We thought we sent that message loud and clear during the 2008 Presidential race which brought the | Read More »
