CONSERVATIVE SENATE CHALLENGER RECEIVES MAX CAMPAIGN CHECK FROM MEN & WOMEN IN BLUE
PHOENIX, Ariz. February 22, 2010. The organization representing the officers of the largest law enforcement agency in Arizona announced their support of JD Hayworth today in his bid to unseat Senator John McCain. The Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA) also announced today that they are making the maximum contribution allowed by law to Hayworths campaign.
We are proud to stand behind JD. He stood behind our officers during his time in Congress and during his time as a broadcaster, said Mark Spencer, President of PLEA. PLEA represents more than 2500 sworn officers of the Phoenix Police Department. We look forward to his continued community service through his support of front-line public safety personnel.
Hayworth, who is mounting a conservative challenge to the moderate McCain, is moved by the endorsement.
Few endorsements mean as much to me as the folks who are on the front lines of keeping our communities safe. I am honored that Phoenix cops think that much of me, said Hayworth. The fact that they are supporting my campaign financially makes it that much more special.
Vulnerable to the more conservative Hayworth on taxes, pro-law enforcement issues and illegal immigration, McCain has resorted to attacking Hayworth on spending, despite Hayworth having a better lifetime rating from Citizens Against Government Waste, among other organizations.
McCain also voted for the $850 billion bailout of the big banks which included $150 billion in earmarks, proposed a $300 billion bailout for mortgage lenders and, according to the Heritage Foundation, sponsored an amnesty bill that would have cost taxpayers $2.6 trillion over the long-term.

McCain Again Commits to Big Government, Eliminating Consumer Choice
PHOENIX, ARIZONA. FEBRUARY 12, 2010. Renewing his commitment to big government in the face of growing skepticism about Washington's expanding powers, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) introduced legislation last week to further regulate vitamins and supplements. His partnership with U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota) follows other liberal efforts with Joseph Lieberman on global warming, Ted Kennedy on amnesty and Russ Feingold on First Amendment regulations, recently overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Dietary Supplement Safety Act (DSSA) of 2010 (S.3002), introduced by Sen. McCain and co-sponsored by Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND), seeks to regulate all dietary supplements.
The introduction of this legislation does not come in the face of health and safety concerns, but rather is an apparent response to athletes use of over-the-counter supplements as performance enhancers.
"Use of vitamins and supplements should not be regulated simply because a few athletes want to redirect attention from their doping, said U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth.
Americans across the country would likely see a rise in prices and a decrease in availability of vitamins and supplements with the passage of this bill, as supplement manufacturers would be subject to excessive reporting requirements and broad recall authority by the FDA.
This bill is yet more "bipartisan" legislation by the 24-year incumbent that panders to those interested in increasing the size and scope of the federal government. Senator McCain voted for the massive bank bailout bill in 2008, which included $150billion in earmarks. During his presidential run he proposed spending $300 billion to buy up every bad mortgage in America, again bailing out banks and borrowers. And according to the Heritage Foundation his support for amnesty legislation would have cost taxpayers $2.6trillion.
John McCain was not helped by Obama’s disrespect in today’s matinee performance of La Cage aux Folles.
It served to show how truly despicable BO and the Democrat leadership is and discourages voter support for future cooperation or bi-partisan suck-up by the GOP.
I am not crazy about unions but do this cops support Sheriff Joe? If so then they are good guys. Sheriff Joe fof Gov or POTUS.
Juan McCain needs to retire - NOW!
Hayworth is endorsed by Arpaio, Simcox and law Enforcement. meanwhile Palin is teaming up with McAmnesty and Romney. She’s making matters worse for herself.
Put the old mclame horse out to pasture!
Did I not read somewhere that the governor of Arizona backs JD Hayworth? Go JD and send the RINO out to pasture.
