I wonder why SP would support JM. His daughter is out there praising some rapper who pretends he is having sex with her, and JM has hardly been out front defending SP.

Well, I doubt it!
The Hispanic community will come out in droves to support McCain, just like they did in the Presidential elec....

Oh.

Is this his legitimate web site?

http://www.simcoxforsenate.com/

If so he needs some $$$ to spiff it up and hire a better copywriter.

Johnson said the campaign also will target voters who have left the Republican Party in recent years because of dissatisfaction with elected officials whom they believe abandoned the party's principles.

Ooooh, this should be good.

There was no chance of a recall election and McCain would have won if there had been one.

Yes, that is his campaign's Web site, per reports from tomorrow's edition of The Washington Times. Simcox apparently only has two paid staffers and a very low bank account balance, so that might explain why the Web site is nowhere nearly as good as it could be. Regardless, he's courageous for going up against McCain and the Arizona GOP.

Chris better attack Senator McCain for ALL of his non-conservative ways on too many issues! Our still ongoing, stupid, and unconstitutional “campaign finance reform” system continues to be one of the major reasons why present U.S. politics is so screwed up!

How many times will McCain call the citizens of Arizona “my friends” this campaign?

He is in for a fight. I remember election night...Arizona was too close to call for 2 hours.

Ridiculous

Simcox doesn't stand a chance.

Hopefully, he'll get out and let a more viable candidate take on McCain; someone who actually has a chance of winning.

Getting rid of McCain is too important to leave it in the hands of this rookie.

I initially defended Simcox, asking that he be given time to provide an audit. He didn’t deliver the audit or the fence. He’s another low-grade grifter as far as I’m concerned now.

Right! He has taken down the part of the Minutemanhq site, "http://www.minutemanborderfence.com/". That is no surprise, but the story is all over the net.

I don’t know much about AZ politics, but donated $10 against McCain. Hopefully if Simcox isn’t a viable candidate, someone more likely to win will be encouraged by anti-McCain donations Simcox receives.

...."JD Hayworth could have run instead."....

That is the name that came to me first. He has the name, the heft, and the issues. McCain is a dolt, but he has the flag wrapped so tightly around himself, I don't know if he can be beat. Being held prisoner and defending the country is a great bio, but it doesn't make you right. I was in the military with a bunch of people that shouldn't have even been allowed to have children, let alone run the country. Being a vet is great on the bio, but Murtha, Kerry and a bunch of others claim veteran status and they should be shining shoes.

I think if JD Hayworth did run and he got a load of money and backing from us, talk radio and bloggers I think he has a great chance of beating McCain.

the problem here is that if Simcox looses then the left can say ,”see the people of AZ do not want your kind of immigration agenda and views, they were refused by the voters”

this is a big gamble and you can bet the left will be pouring money in now to defeat him along with pro illegal groups .

It is like bozo now, he thinks because he said change and he is on the white house that he has an agenda to totally change everything about this country when a lot of people voted they meant change as in stop the partisan politics etc.

if he looses then this will play right into the lefts hands

So your saying you’d keep McCain in play, and not support a rookie???

If I was able to vote in that race, the rookie is EXACTLY what Arizona and the rest of the country needs...

We have a guy who is running for the Senate seat that Kay Bailey Hutchison is going to have to vacate to run for Govenor against Rick Perry...

You can bet yer sweet bippy he is going (and even has an endorsement from me) to get my vote...

And he is not a rookie per say to politics...But to the Senate he is...And he is EXACTLY what Texas and the country needs right now...

So if there are similar situations in other states, I would give serious consideration to those ponying up to run against some of these incumbents...

Just my opinion...

A guy did just that to help build the fence. It was all grift. Simcox would fit in just fine in today's corrupt DC. But the point of our efforts should be to block the grifters, not support them.

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

If it worked for Hilary on her first shot at running for office, then it will certainly work for Simcox.
