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!

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.

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.

One can only hope. For all we know, they may dust him off and try to run him again in 2012.

...."It's time to take out the RINO trash"....

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.

"John McCain has failed miserably in his duty to secure this nation’s borders and protect the people of Arizona from the escalating violence and lawlessness,” Simcox said in a statement. “He has fought real efforts over the years at every turn, opting to hold our nation’s border security hostage to his amnesty schemes. Coupled with his votes for reckless bailout spending and big government solutions to our nation’s problems, John McCain is out of touch with everyday Arizonans. Enough is enough."
— Chris Simcox, 2009-04-21


NO AMNESTY FOR MCCAIN!

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.

I don’t think he’s “out there,” except with respect to thinking the Senate is a good place for a beginner politician.

"The Democrats will crossover in the primary to vote for McCain.

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.

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?
