    The Washington Post ^ | 2010-08-23 | Chris Cillizza
    Sen. John McCain has raised and spent better than $21 million in advance of tomorrow's primary fight against former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, a massive amount of money that has helped to ensure that the Arizona Republican will win easily. McCain's eye-popping spending -- putting aside self-funders he has spent the most money of any Senate candidate this cycle --is the most obvious evidence of the threat that the 2008 Republican presidential nominee perceived in Hayworth -- a six term Congressman who lost a re-election bid in 2006. McCain spent millions (and millions) on television ads aimed at blocking Hayworth from...
  • Hayworth: "Cynical" McCain a "Political Shape-Shifter"

    CBS News - Political Hotsheet ^ | 2010-08-23 | Lauren Seifert
    Sen. John McCain may have a comfortable lead over J.D. Hayworth going into Tuesday's Arizona Republican Senate primary, but he didn't get there without a fight. McCain spent $21 million in an effort to bury Hayworth in the primary and shifted to the right on immigration and other issues, even shedding the "Maverick" label he once embraced. Hayworth joined CBS News' John Dickerson on "Washington Unplugged" Monday in this week's installment of "Behind the Ballot." The host brought up McCain's latest anti-Hayworth campaign ad tying the former congressman to convicted ex-lobbyist Jack Abramoff. The ad claims "Hayworth received $150,000 from...

    Mother Jones ^ | Aug.23, 2010 | Suzy Khimm
    A Senator’s journey from bipartisan maverick to right-wing ideologue—one flip-flop at a time. In theory, John McCain's right-wing madness could come to an end on Tuesday, when he is expected to prevail over former Rep. JD Hayworth in Arizona’s Senate primary. Faced with a stiff conservative challenge, McCain has spent this election cycle defying many of his long-held moderate positions. In fact, his transformation from aisle-crossing, party-bucking maverick (see this 1998 Mother Jones interview) to cookie-cutter conservative has been years in the making. During his 2008 presidential bid, he began to lurch rightward on a litany of issues in his...

    OK, so before I get started I have to tell everyone here that JD Hayworth reads what we post here. And he REMEMBERS! LOL! I am a JD supporter, and several months ago when I met him for the first time, he told me he likes to come here to FreeRepublic and read what we have to say. I was going to have him come here, but I never followed through, which was my fault. However, I have been hard on him in recent weeks. I have to say that because Mohave County, where I live, is so conservative, conservative...
  • Why John McCain isn't in more trouble for Arizona Senate primary

    Christian Science Monitor ^ | August 20, 2010 | Lourdes Medrano, Tucson, Ariz
    The whispers in the spring were that Sen. John McCain, the Republican Party's presidential candidate in 2008, was vulnerable to an upset from the right when he sought reelection to the Senate this year. Now, in the home stretch toward Arizona’s primary election on Tuesday, such talk has largely faded.   -SNIP-   Like Hayworth, there are others who don't buy the notion that McCain has given up on enacting comprehensive immigration reform, which includes a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants. For instance, Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee (ALIPAC) announced Thursday it’s mobilizing a network of...

  • Turning the lights on in media blackout Arizona (blatant, unconstitutional censorship)

    Canada Free Press ^ | August 13, 2010 | Judi McLeod
    Earth to Arizona mainstream media: patriots are already piercing sparks of bright light through your media blackout. “Media censorship in Arizona has now become quite blatant.  Can Canada Free Press help,” patriot Annette McHugh writes CFP this morning.  “Not only do the anti-SB1070 protesters get more media coverage than the pro-SB1070 supporters, but now there is blatant, unconstitutional censorship occurring in Arizona of media attempts to silence Conservative voices, activities, rallies, press releases and press conferences of Arizona Tea Parties!” It seems that silence is not golden but deafening in Senator John McCain country.-SNIP- Hugh’s concerns are echoed by...

    SIERRA VISTA — A Border Tea Party Rally will be held close to the fence separating the U.S. from Mexico. The Sunday event on private property will be from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with a stage 60 feet from the border. A number of speakers will talk about border security, including Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose roundups of illegal immigrants have angered civil rights groups. Also scheduled to speak is Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever and Arizona State Sen. Russell Pearce, one of the architects of Senate Bill 1070 calling for Arizona law enforcement agencies to question individuals...

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio makes a guest appearance on Roundtable Politics to explain why he believes that JD Hayworth is a better candidate for U.S. Senate than John McCain. Some of the reasons include JD's 98% 12-year lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union, and McCain's low 81% lifetime rating and history of flip-flopping, especially on illegal immigration.

    U.S. Senate candidate Jimmie Lee Deakin, Jr. has more to worry about than siphoning enough votes from conservative U.S. Senate candidate J. D. Hayworth to return John McCain to the halls of power he so covets. It seems Jimmie Lee is facing foreclosure, with his home just noticed – July 29 — for a trustee sale.* During the debates, Deakin made much of the issue of congressional overspending. But how does he intend to effectively rein in government spending when he’s unable to control his own? This news puts a definite damper on Deakin’s credibility. Deakin claims he is a...

    Arizona Capitol Times ^ | July 26th, 2010 | Jeremy Duda
    With the GOP primary just a month away, U.S. Sen. John McCain is pulling further away from rival J.D. Hayworth, and Rasmussen Reports is no longer listing the incumbent senator as vulnerable to an upset from his conservative challenger. A Rasmussen Reports poll released on July 26 showed McCain with a 54-34 lead over Hayworth. Rasmussen conducted the automated push-button telephone poll of 595 likely Republican primary voters on July 21. Seven percent of respondents said they would vote for another candiate, and 6 percent said they were unsure who they would cast their ballots for in the Aug. 24...

    Rassmusen ^ | July 26, 2010
    Senator John McCain has opened a 20-point lead over former Congressman J.D. Hayworth in Arizona’s Republican Senate Primary race. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely GOP Primary Voters in the state shows McCain attracting 54% of the vote, while Hayworth earns 34%. For Hayworth, this represents another decline in support. In April, he picked up 42% of the vote. That fell to 40% in May, 36% in June and 34% in July. For McCain, the 54% level of support is his highest yet. “Some other candidate” picks up seven percent (7%) support, and six percent (6%) are undecided....

    The four-term incumbent holds a significant lead over his main opponent and appears to be breezing toward a big win in Arizona's Aug. 24 Republican primary. The Arizona Republic newspaper recently summed up the trend, headlining that McCain held a “devastating” lead over his challenger, former GOP Rep. J.D. Hayworth. A July Rocky Mountain poll by the Phoenix-based Behavior Research Center showed McCain with a whopping 64 percent of the vote, compared to 19 percent for Hayworth. Hayworth’s invective against McCain hasn’t been gaining traction with Republican voters. Hayworth has tried to present himself as the tea party candidate. But...

    Phoenix New Times ^ | Jul. 22 2010 | James King
    J.D. Hayworth's criticism of John McCain over a TV ad featuring Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu seems to have backfired. Since calling on McCain to pull the ad because Babeu called in to a white-supremacist radio show -- apparently without knowing it was a show for racists -- Hayworth's now taking his lumps from Arizona lawmen defending the sheriff. This afternoon, the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police put out a press release calling on Hayworth to retract his comments about Babeu and demanding an apology. "We're about to enforce SB1070, and the White House doesn't trust Arizona Peace Officers to...

    PHOENIX - Former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth had a much-needed opportunity Friday night to refocus Arizona's Republican Senate primary on incumbent John McCain, and he came out swinging. McCain, Hayworth and political newcomer Jim Deakin squared off Friday in the first of two televised debates before Arizona's Aug. 24 Republican primary. "It's really sad to see John McCain, who should be revered as a statesman, basically reduced to a political shape-shifter," he said, then turned to his opponent. "John, you've changed positions so much in this campaign maybe we'll have to set up an extra podium for you depending on...
