LOL! Where is that incredibly FAKE Daily KOS - Soros poll hoping to bail McCain out showing McCain up 15 points! McCqain is Soros/KOS stooge.

Go JD!

My thoughts exactly. I just sent JD $100 lst week, and I'm going to send him another $100 today.

Getting Hayworth in will really mark the end of an error.

The Primary is set for August 24. Plenty of time for J.D. to pull ahead.

Pretty late primary. I suspect JD will have Rubio sized lead by then. Anyone else think he’s a little over the top with his affect - maybe it’s just me.

If it weren't for Palin's radio ads, McCain would be dead meat by now, instead it is nearly a dead heat.

You KNOW that the RNC will support the very liberal McQueeg, so please encourage everyone to send money to JD. Let’s give him enough to give him a sustainable lead.

McCain is that proverbial crack in the toilet seat that you invariably have at least once in your home ownership. You see it, you know it's there, but you just never seem to grab a new, better one at Home Depot or Lowe's. Not until the bastard pinches your ass severely once, that is.

Get rid of his tired fake-conservative ass, Arizona! You'll feel better for it (so will we!).

“If it weren’t for Palin’s radio ads, McCain would be dead meat by now, instead it is nearly a dead heat. “

I was being generous, but for the life of me, I don’t know why. Palin has palpably damaged J.D., thus far.

Great news, JD keeps narrowing the margin. Another amnesty push looks certain after Memorial Day.

Anyone living in Arizona who could give us a rundown on how this campaign seems to be playing out in the state: what ads are running on radio and TV, what people are saying, etc.

It is if you make statements in your “non endorsement” such as “JD would make a fine Senator” or “Obviously, my views are more aligned with JDs” or “JD’s a great guy”.

The fact that a colleague does not endorse a sitting politicians speaks volumes. And it does not say the same thing as running ads and making appearances praising the “maverick” RINO.

Considering what Juan has done in his career, JD should be winning by at least 80%-20%.

I have long since lost faith in my fellow Republicans

Palin has been doing daily McCain ads all over Arizona every day for a couple of weeks. Mostly on Limbaugh and Hannity shows.

Hayworth started his new radio ad yesterday, and it is excellent!! Hard hitting, but not mean.

I can think of one great conservative from Minnesota who when asked about the race, praised both JD and McNut equally.

The fact that a colleague does not endorse a sitting politicians speaks volumes.

Actively endorsing and campaigning for JD speaks more volumes.

And it does not say the same thing as running ads and making appearances praising the “maverick” RINO.

I never said it was the same thing. As I did say, sucking half as bad shouldn't be an option.

I’m not talking about Bachmann. I’m talking about DeMint and Hunter. Hunter won’t endorse because both men have campaigned for him multiple times and his dad was a big McCain supporter. But he also let it be known that JD is the guy whose politics he far prefers.

Thanks, I just hope Sarah at least decides to stay out of Arizona until this campaign is over. And Juan is so vulnerable to criticism on so many flip flops and stances that conservatives oppose, that JD could really rake him over the coals in a debate.

There is a danger of seeming too mean, but JD also needs to point out some of Juan's most blatant hypocrisy and the liberal positions he's taken.

It takes awhile for those who don’t pay much attention to learn that an alternative to McCain even *exists*.

But once they do, they get real interested...

That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.

This is a great result. I think Ras trends about 2-3 in favor of the “good guys,” but it still suggests that Hayworth is MUCH closer than McQueeq thinks and is completely in striking distance.

There were multiple live rallies in Arizona, a picnic, a paid photo-op, an op-ed in the Arizona Republic, an appearance on Fox News broadcast worlwide, her image plastered all over his campaign Web site for months, and then the daily radio ads broadcast in Arizona that SJB is talking about.

JD is a blowhard whose stupid antics lost a safe Republican seat. Another vote for Obamacare which never should have been - thanks, JD.

He should not be rewarded with the Senate nomination.
