Skip to comments.Sen. McCain faces toughest re-election challenge
Posted on 02/12/2010 6:20:15 PM PST by Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus
Defeated just two years ago as the Republican presidential candidate and with his bonafides as a true conservative again being challenged, John McCain finds himself in a struggle to get even his party's nomination for another term in the Senate.
Many conservatives and Tea Party activists are lining up behind Republican challenger and former talk radio host J.D. Hayworth, reflecting a rising tide of voter frustration with incumbent politicians. Only 40 percent of Arizonans have a favorable view of McCain's job performance.
Faced with his toughest re-election battle ever, McCain has moved to the right on several hot-button issues, like gays in the military and climate change, and has built a campaign war chest of more than $5 million. Former running mate Sarah Palin and newly elected Republican Sen. Scott Brown, both popular with conservatives, are pitching in.
Hayworth, who will officially launch his campaign Monday, began using his talk show on conservative radio station KFYI to drum up opposition to McCain.

I hope he’s done. I’m tired of him and his silly twit of a daughter.
McCain - true conservative........I see the words together and do not understand what they mean.
My sentiments exactly. Whatever good there may have ever been about John McCain is long gone.
And I fully intend to do all that I can to make it even tougher!
Its Yahoo News......
For him a position is but a matter of positioning. If he can "move to the right" to get elected he can move right back and maybe even lefter once elected. I do not credit any politician who "moves" toward my philosophy. If he can so move then he has no beliefs of his own and no reason to believe any particular way. He has no ground.
I can’t believe McCain’s campaign corralled Sarah Palin but now allowing his daughter to trash seniors.
bwhahahahaha. Let me get that out first. Someone please tell me why Sarah Palin finds the need to pitch in and help him out in his time of political trouble. Sarah: He’s part of the problem. Not part of the solution. Always has been. Always will be. PLEASE
Throw my dear friend Middling McCain out to pasture, and tell him to spank his obnoxious daughter and send her to her room for a decade or two.
I love his ‘twit of a daughter’. I hope she stays in front of the public, and spouts her honest thoughts.
JD will benefit greatly from her ‘help’.
I’ll admit that if I had a time machine to I’d still vote for him last year, but I won’t be sad to see him go.
I doubt he has control of his daughter, she’s a grown woman and accountable for her own actions. My guess is she was never taught any manners and was probably allowed to do as she pleased. It’s obvious the twit has no respect for her elders. She practically spat those words out of her mouth.
Face it, John. It's time.
His wife’s and daughter’s gushing support over homo marriage must be helping McCain a lot.
Ah, actually you are correct....lol By her words, she condemns not only herself but, her father.
I guessing so that his attack dogs stay on the porch in 2011 and 2012. It HAS to be a “pay it forward” thing. That is the only reason I can think of.
You’re older than dirt, John. We appreciate your service, but why not enjoy your twilight years in AZ? How can we miss you when you won’t go away?
