Sounds like the RNC will start pumping in money to beat Simcox in the primary...

They'll take it from Soros and ACORN....

Honestly? It will take death or retirement to get rid of McCain.

Mr. Simcox needs every dollar any patriotic American can spare.

FIRST - to replace Mr. McCain with a REAL Republican.

TWO - to send a message to those idiots in the GNC

THREE - as PAYBACK for getting himself nominated as candidate and THEN running such a miserable campaign it helped put the Obamanation in the White House

Getting rid of McPain is a good deal, but to replace him with a shyster wouldn't help the cause.

Personally, I don't care if the guy is a shyster (it seems that just about EVERY pol looks to loot the state/federal treasury). Use him to knock out McCain, then knock him out in the next election if he's really bad. The thing is to start purging/churning and sort out the good guys later. We've got a self-appointed House of Lords right now.

Ten-fifteen million?? The republican party/McCain will spend that in the first week if necessary. Remember, Juan’s wife is a zillionaire! But it is also quite true that there is a great deal of anger, especially with the professional sell-out and betrayer of the American public, Juan McCain. It may well be that this is an interesting race to watch.

I’m for anyone who can get McCain out of Washington and out of the media, if the latter is possible. Beating McCain would be all the more enjoyable if he would take his air-headed, pop queen daughter with him.

It has nothing to do with me. It has everything to do with the voters in Arizona, most of whom pay no attention to current events or politics. I don’t think McCain has made any blunders, in their eyes, large enough to lose his Senate seat.

Not if everybody stops sending money to the RNC. Send the cash directly to the candidate.

I agree...

The other thing to watch for,and unfortunately this is a double edged sword...

Look for the moderate pimps in the GOP leadership to swoon Sarah Palin for an early endorsement, or some political hack will elevate that particular issue to the breaking point where people to get so sick of her, that her chances in 2012 will be damaged beyond repair...

So then all they have left to destroy will be folks like Jindal, Santorum et.al.

Looks like the democrats may not have much to worry about in 2010-2012 because the Republicans may not be able to field many heavy hitters in the next few elections...

I believe Arizona voters pay more attention that you think. Every time a proposition comes up here that opposes illegal aliens, it passes overwhelmingly. Now we have a candidate that opposes illegal aliens, and can point out where McCain has supported them with his path to citizenship and his sarcastic offer to pay Americans to pick lettuce. He should have overwhelming support from Arizona voters.

I’ve met Chris at a rally and he seems to be a nice guy. But I wonder if he has some weird ideas that might alienate Republicans. He needs to show Conservative ideas across the board and not try to run as a single issue candidate.

Yes, and maybe this will “inspire” other true conservatives to step forward and run for Senate/Congress in other states.

It’s encouraging that Republicans are waking up and realizing that we can’t win as a moderate party. Getting rid of Specter in PA and McCain in AZ is a good step in the right direction.

Simcox will get crushed by McCain in the primary.

This is a horrible turn of events for those who truly want to oust McCain.

YES! It's about time someone took on this rino McCain. Where do I send the check? Heck, I'd vote for the trash collector if they were conservative enough over any rino prick!

Let's see, Specter and McCain have consrervative challegers, where are they for rino's Snowe and Collins?

If Simcox and his supporters or anti-illegal alien supporters can get one or several anti-illegal immigration ballot initiatives on the primary ballot and the general election ballot , then McCain will be toast.

That seems like a manageable task for the upstart Simcox, one he has the organizational strength to pull off to better his personal chance against McCain.

The Rino party would then back McLame like Specter and say any thing less than Rino.inc. would hand a filibuster proof senate to Democrats.

Please don’t waste your money on supporting Simcox until you find out who Sarah Palin will be supporting in this contest.

If Sarah supports McCain, it’s game over for Simcox.

Instead send the money to SarahPAC; you’ll get a lot more bang for your buck.

Let’s also not forget that McCain was on the verge of a recall elelection until 911. After that, the effort was pulled “for the good of the country.”

There are a lot of people in AZ who want McCain out of there!
