Ugh... well Napolitano would probably win this seat by default if McCain doesn’t hold on.

Will he run as a Democrat or a Republican?

I’m kind of surprised, as he’ll be 75 that year.

Like New Mexico and Colorado, the illegals are turning Arizona blue. The GOP is just about done here. Commies are everywhere.

Sort of a reprise of Goldwater's career. He returned to the Senate in 1968 after the 1964 debacle.

Great. The state of Arizona can vote for that loser McCain. What a fricking disgrace.

I don’t want the seat to go to Napolitano, but I can’t help wishing that John would just retire.

He can run from Conservatives but he won’t be able to hide behind Sarah’s skirt for that election...

John McCain, you took an Oath and you need to go the wall to defend it. SIR!

Go away, “MY FRIEND,” go away, although I voted for you!

The way you ran your campaign, praising barack hussein osama obama as a “decent man” whom we “need not be afraid of,” one could easily think that you were in the tank with THAT ONE all the way! And yet, you did not defend your running mate from your own wolfpack and went lalalalalala... What’s the matter, RINO? She made you feel “small?”

Thank you for your service to our country, but now, please do the RNC a BIG favor and fade away.

Why is it so tough just to be gracious to a noble warrior, both in real combat and for our party? You may not agree with every policy McCain has articulated, but it doesn’t mean that you should spew disrespect like the other side does.

You’d think we might be happy around here that a Republican is running who can hold the seat. What’s your favored alternative—Napolitano running and winning? That’s what would happen otherwise.

No rewards for epic failure. He not only should retire, he ought to resign.

Ironic, that McCain spent almost his entire political decisions wooing the independents, moderates and RINO’s... and what does he have to show for it now.

He will be easily picked off by his democrat senate “friends” on key future votes.
His career of twisting the knife in conservatives is not yet done. Wait and see.

ell since he’s announced himself bosom budies with Obama, tell me why any conservative should vote for a guy who helped lead to the fall of the Majority?

I hope he loses. If someone has the guts to take him on, I’d support them too. But either way, I want him to flame out.

I think your comment is inappropriate. So he lost the election. Do you really think after the collapse in the financial markets we could have won? Let him represent his state.

If Obama was so decent why did he run against him? I still claim that McCain was not serious in his run for the presidency and perhaps was a closeted Obama supporter.
His personal heroism in Vietnam is negated by his public incompetence in 2008. In the end, he did not do America any favors.

Wouldn’t it be sweet to get a conservative to run against him in the primaries??

THAT would be the LOUDEST message we can send, we’ll send money and defeat McCain in the primaries!!!

if we’re going to get rid of RINO’s this would be the PERFECT place to start, if we could unseat our “figurehead” in the primaries the RINO’s would know that we mean business and that we are the REPUBLICAN party, not the socialists to the democrats Communists.

DJ, do you know if there’s a conservative in AZ to run against McCain in the primaries??

I bet we could raise a million dollars on FR alone to get rid of McCain.

I have to agree. He amazed me with his stamina during the later stages of the campaign. I am almost 20 years younger and I don’t think I could have done it! I voted for him, but up until he got the nomination, I had always said that I would never do so. Despite the fact that he is not my favorite person, he needs to try to keep the seat in Republican hands!
