  • GOP leader says McCain trying to ‘ethnically cleanse’ the party

    10/15/2014 6:40:43 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 9 replies
    Maricopa County Republican Party Chairman A.J. LaFaro says U.S. Sen. John McCain and a political committee backed by moderate Republicans who support him are attempting to “ethnically cleanse” the party of conservative precinct committeemen. LaFaro filed a complaint Sept. 19 with the Secretary of State’s Office and the Citizens Clean Elections Commission alleging a political group called the Arizona Grassroots Action PAC broke campaign finance laws by failing to register as a political committee in Arizona and disclose its spending. He said the group sent mailers and made automated phone calls to Republican voters to influence the voting in some...

    PHOENIX—An ebullient John McCain celebrated his resounding GOP Senate primary win with Gov. Jan Brewer, Sen. Jon Kyl and the state’s Republican congressional delegation at a unity fundraiser Friday night. Conspicuously absent: former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, whom McCain soundly defeated Tuesday following a bitter and acrimonious campaign. Organizers said he received an invitation to the event, just as others losing candidates did, but Hayworth claims the opposite. “I never received an invitation – nothing ever crossed my desk,” the former six-term congressman told POLITICO Saturday.

    Two days after being trounced in the Arizona GOP Senate primary, former Rep. J.D. Hayworth still hasn’t called Sen. John McCain to congratulate him. And it’s not as if Tuesday night’s outcome was in doubt for very long. McCain eviscerated Hayworth by 24 percentage points and The Associated Press called the race not even a full two hours after the polls closed. The four-term senator quickly took the stage at the downtown Phoenix Convention Center to declare victory and make it an early night. But the McCain campaign is still a bit surprised it never heard from Hayworth, a former...

    PHOENIX -- For the first time in state history, Arizona is holding its primary elections in August. Experts predict between 20 and 25 percent of registered voters will go to the polls before they close at 7 p.m. Tuesday. They think the heat and humidity, which have put the Valley under an extreme heat warning, will keep some people home. "That certainly is going to discourage people from going to the polls," said Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell.

Voters also head to the polls Tuesday for primary elections in Florida, Vermont and Alaska and results are being closely watched as a litmus test of the anti-incumbent mood in the run up to mid-term elections in November.

    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...

    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...

    John McCain holds a comfortable lead in the contentious Arizona Republican Senate primary, according to the most recent public polling, making him the strong favorite against former Rep. J.D. Hayworth on Tuesday. But it’s been a costly road to a fifth term for the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, and the experience is likely to leave a lasting and unsightly stain on his legacy. It’s not just the $20 million he’s spent already this election or the scorched earth campaign that he’s run. Rather, it’s the choices he’s made and the positions he’s embraced — and what it reveals about him...

    Sen. John McCain was once one of the major Republican supporters of immigration reform, arguing for comprehensive legislation as recently as 2008. Faced with accusations of supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants, McCain has moved to a much tougher immigration stance during his Republican primary. But after the primary vote next Tuesday, will the old McCain come back? The winner of the GOP primary in Arizona is likely to have a straight shot to the Senate seat, NPR reported yesterday. But first McCain must beat opponent J.D. Hayworth, a former congressman who has attacked McCain for his previous support of immigration...

John McCain, and turned McCain's words back on the veteran senator. On a ranch in Hereford, Arizona, and with the border fence visible several hundred yards behind him, Hayworth also praised Arizona's new immigration law that was signed by the state's governor, who has spent the last two days campaigning with McCain. Pulling a word from a McCain letter on immigration which first surfaced in April, Hayworth said it was time to...

John McCain released a new web video drumming Hayworth for reportedly preferring President Obama to the Republican incumbent senator. The video begins with a picture of President Obama and lists a litany of criticisms, from the 9.5 percent unemployment rate, to the $13 trillion national debt and the lawsuit against Arizona’s immigration law. The text interrupts with, “but J.D. says he’d rather have Barack Obama as president.”

    PHOENIX (AP) — Sen. John McCain's Republican primary challenger has released a new ad using McCain's own voice admitting to lying in the past. Former congressman J.D. Hayworth's campaign released the commercial Thursday. It uses McCain's voice from the recording of his 2002 book, in which McCain recalls publicly supporting South Carolina's right to fly the Confederate flag, even though he personally opposed it. McCain says on the recording: " ... it could come down to lying or losing. I chose lying." The ad suggests McCain is again lying about his record on illegal immigration.

    McCain calls Hayworth a "pig." He desperately defends his flip-flops and record of voting for the billion dollar pork TARP bailouts which included $150 billion in earmarks, co-sponsoring amnesty with Ted Kennedy and cap and trade legislation with Joe Lieberman, and voting against tax cuts twice. Hayworth easily proves that he is much more conservative than McCain on the very things McCain has been attacking him on – pork and earmarks. In their second, and likely final, Senate primary debate, JD Hayworth again easily defeated John McCain. McCain avoided discussing real issues, where he has a record of flip-flopping in...

Both debates between the two candidates are taking place well into the primary, after McCain has had months to spend $6 million in smear attack ads against JD. $5 million of that was leftover from prior campaigning, including $1.1 million from convicted Ponzi scheme criminal Scott Rothstein - the top contributor to two of his 2008 presidential campaign funds.

    In his August Senate primary against John McCain, former Arizona Congressman J.D. Hayworth touts himself as "Mr. Conservative." But in 2007, after losing his House seat the previous year, the former talk show host rented himself out as a pitchman in a TV infomercial recruiting viewers to spend at least $1,000 for "seminars" on how to apply for federal grants they wouldn't have to pay back.

    The Phoenix Business Journal ^ | 2010-06-17 | Mike Sunnucks
    An Arizona tea party group is backing J.D. Hayworth’s U.S. Senate bid. The North Phoenix Tea Party said Thursday it was backing Hayworth’s Republican primary bid against incumbent U.S. Sen. John McCain. The North Valley group is one of a number of anti-tax, anti-Obama tea party groups in the state. Some of those groups have stayed out of the GOP primary fight between McCain and Hayworth. If Hayworth is to upset McCain in September’s primary, he will need support from tea party advocates and those favoring tighter immigration controls. McCain is backed by business groups including the National Federation of...

    J.D. Hayworth for Senate / Via Electronic Mail | 2010-06-15
    Phoenix, Az. (June 15) - U.S. Senate Candidate J.D. Hayworth (R-Az.) today said he is dismayed by claims that Sen. John McCain does not know McCain's number one contributor who is now serving 50 years in prison. Hayworth called on McCain to admit he knows Scott Rothstein, the convicted Ponzi scheme artist, return all the dirty money he received over the years from investment scams, and promise to return and reject contributions from shady characters. "Sen. McCain likes to talk about how character matters, how political leaders must rise above even the appearance of impropriety," Hayworth said. "It's time his...

    J.D. Hayworth 2010 Via Electronic Mail | 2010-06-11
    Phoenix, AZ (June 11) -- Sen. John McCain should immediately establish a fund for the victims of his largest contributor, Scott Rothstein, who this week was sentenced to 50 years in prison for running an elaborate $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme. The McCain-Rothstein Victim's Fund would reimburse people who were swindled out of their money. A total of $1.1 million of the stolen money ended up in McCain's campaign. "While McCain claims he gave a $9,200 of the money to charities, he used the rest and he needs to give it back to the rightful owners," said Mark Sanders, spokesman for...
  • Letter: Time for McCain to retire

    Editor: It's time to retire Senator John McCain, 73, who's been in office 24 years. Contrary to how he depicts himself, McCain has been a big government globalist during his entire senatorial career. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which is dedicated to one-world government and the relinquishment of all national sovereignties. McCain is a RINO (Republican In Name Only), a closet Democrat. Suddenly running scared, and with a $5 million campaign war chest to spend, McCain is blitzing TV with ads in support of securing the border: a 360-degree turnaround. If you're wondering why...

    Democrats may be salivating over the possibility of running against former Rep. J.D. Hayworth in the Arizona Senate race this fall, but Tucson City Councilman Rodney Glassman says he'd rather end up campaigning against Sen. John McCain, the incumbent battling back a primary challenge from Hayworth. Glassman, the leading Democrat in the Senate race, said he thinks McCain would be an easier target because voters are tired of incumbency – and McCain's already been in the Senate for four terms. "The's election is a job application, it's a job interview for a six-year irrevocable employment contract," Glassman told POLITICO. "And...

    Sen. John McCain will debate GOP rival J.D. Hayworth this summer, his campaign spokesman said Wednesday. Brian Rogers, McCain’s campaign communications director, said a newspaper report indicating McCain was “busy with his job as a senator” and would not debate Hayworth was “not accurate.” “What we said all along is that Sen. McCain will obviously debate — he’s always debated,” Rogers said, adding, but “he has a day job. Folks want him doing his job during the week, so he doesn’t have, unlike Congressman Hayworth, unlimited time on his hands.” Hayworth, who served 12 years in the House before he...

    PHOENIX (AP) - John McCain's re-election campaign is releasing its second set of television and radio ads attacking the Arizona's senator's primary opponent for his ties to Washington. The ads point out that former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth registered as a lobbyist in 2008, a year after he lost his re-election bid. Hayworth is challenging McCain in the Republican primary and casting himself as a conservative Washington outsider. But the ads challenge that image, with a narrator saying: "Outsider? A lobbyist is as inside Washington as it gets."
