Finally, some new blood.
Although Kiley and Johnson touted Simcox's stances on other GOP issues, such as abortion and gun control, they said immigration will play a larger role in the campaign. Simcox will push to secure the border immediately by using the National Guard. But unlike in President Bush's 2006 Operation Jump Start, in which thousands of guardsmen were sent to the border to support the Border Patrol, Simcox wants the soldiers to take an active role in stopping illegal activity and detaining people who are trying to enter the country illegally.
Simcox 2010! Toomey 2010! DeMint 2010! Purge the RINOs!
Wow, sounds like he has met his match. Makes me want to move to AZ and help.....
Hell I’ll send him a few bucks.
Longshot. But I can hope and I can pray.
Sounds like the RNC will start pumping in money to beat Simcox in the primary...
woooooo hooooooooo!! Minutemen founder runs against illegal immigrant lover/ supporter and WINS in Landslide.....
Great headlines coming for AZ!
Send him 10$ freepers, we gotta support the guys we don’t want, McCain has alot of money power behind him......
The entrenched incumbents protect their own, so this will be a steep uphill battle.
It’s time. I applaud Mr. Simcox and will send him some money. I’m from Pa and we are trying to get rid of Arlen Spector in 2010 also.
We need to make a serious effort to purge these RINOs.
Not familiar with Simcox. Has he run for office previously ?
“we gotta support the guys we dont want”
this should start to happen all over the country. High profile CONSERVATIVES who are ready to kick ass and chew gum; and be all out of gum.
No. And running for the Senate is a little ambitious as an opening gambit. He is the head of the Minutemen. His heart is absolutely in the right place, but I don’t think he has a prayer of winning, even if he wins the primary.
It’s took bad one of the conservative congressment from Arizona won’t challenge McCain.
“We need to make a serious effort to purge these RINOs.”
AMEN!!!!!! And the national GOP needs to either get onboard or get lost! The future of our party is conservatism; we don’t care how much how the RINOs whine, scream and squeal!!!!
One can only hope. For all we know, they may dust him off and try to run him again in 2012.
That’s, “It’s TOO bad . . .”
I’ll be sending money for him too . The sooner we get rid of the likes of McCain the better.
Thought JD Hayworth could have run as well
Will Mccain bring in the big guns of Graham, Giuliani, Lieberman
* To Lose!! sorry about that. fat fingers to go along with the rest of me LOL
Chris has his critics here on FR. Thankfully, most of them are RINO cheerleader McCain supporters and are easy to spot.
Yeah, but is Simcox the right guy? I haven't studied him, but there is a bunch of trash talk out there even from Minute Men. Has the money situation been accounted for?
Getting rid of McPain is a good deal, but to replace him with a shyster wouldn't help the cause. Believe me if we get a Minute Man elected, the long knives will be out in force. He needs to be able to stand the scrutiny.
I wasn’t going to give to anymore GOPS. But I make make an exception if this guy runs.” Yes my friends” may be gone from our vernacular and none too soon...
John will not run. It should be obvious that his mantle is being passed to Meghan
The other thing that must be done is to write to any other senators and repubs we find out who are backing McCain and tell them we’re going to toss their ass out as well. We need to make sure the RNC knows that we will give them no money if they back McCain.
Of course many of use won’t anyway after what they’ve done with Specter and (for me) putting up McCain in 08 and costing us the election.
RINOS/Half Americans not welcome!
I don’t think he’s “out there,” except with respect to thinking the Senate is a good place for a beginner politician.
She definitely fits the mold by bashing conservatives and sucking up to liberals. She’s all over the tv cozying up to the same people who used to make fun of her.
Why would they do that? They can't beat McCain in the general, but would have a very good shot against a political newcomer with no legislative experience.
I think people assume that it's a foregone conclusion that Simcox would win the seat. The shouldn't. AZ voted for Janet Napalitano, twice - and voted her the second time by a two-to-one margin over her Republican challenger.
You can hate McCain all you like, but if he's unseated in the primary, the Arizona Republicans will be handing another Senate seat to the dems - that's in a Senate where the Dems already hold a comfortable majority. Not very politically savvy for Republicans. But, after the last four years, why would I expect anything else.
It’ll be up to conservatives from around the country to finance this challenge to Juan McLame.
which is why I would have thought JD Hayworth could have run instead.
He knows the ropes, he is a known name and is much better than McCain
if this is a CREDIBLE threat to mccain it will divert money from OTHER potential rino primary runners.
Remember Specter is in primary trouble too.
McCain WILL have more money.
Specter will have more money.
How many OTHER rinos will be in trouble?
Specter, McCain, keep 'em coming!
closed primaries are a must for all future elections.
Unfortunately, this is exactly what McCain needs to insure his reelection.
Yeah, count on that. That’s why the RNC never gets a dime from me!
Nonetheless, the RNC raised more funds last month than did the DNC.
I will donate to Simcox but he has a big task ahead of him because of the liberal rino’s who do support mccain still.
I think we tried that already.
thanks .. crappy day and i reeeeeeally needed a laugh
lol can’t wait to hear meghan mccain’s latest on this turn of events...”some radical whacko right wing racist is trying to take away my father’s job!”
How well did that work for you in the last election, Juan?
