    Few things are as essential to economic growth and development as our nation’s roads. In a state as expansive as Arizona, riders understand the importance of having sound infrastructure, especially when it fails, as it did with the recent bridge collapse on I-10 in California not far from the Arizona border that continues to impact travelers across our state and region. Throughout history, providing for our nation’s infrastructure has been a central priority for both political parties. And, since President Dwight Eisenhower created the Interstate Highway System in 1956, our roads and bridges have served as the backbone to our...

    August 1, 2013 GOP Rep: Obama WH Is Hiding Benghazi Survivors AND CHANGING THEIR NAMES (Video) Jim Hoft Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was on with Greta Van Susteren tonight to discuss the Obama scandals. Gowdy told Greta the Obama Administration is hiding the survivors, dispersing them around the country, AND changing their names. “Including changing names, creating aliases. Stop and think what things are most calculated to get at the truth? Talk to people with first-hand knowledge. What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up? Not letting us talk with people who have the most amount of...

    Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said Friday that the McCain campaign in 2008 prevented her from talking about Barack Obama's controversial background or his lack of job experience for fear "the media would eat us alive." Fox News's Greta Van Susteren responded by saying, "I think at some point [people are] going to look at us in the media and think we're just a bunch of fools. We don't have any credibility anyway" SARAH PALIN: The only fans that aren't going to bail on this stall play that we're all observing is still the media, the mainstream media. They're...

    A prominent Phoenix tea party leader who believes Muslims cannot be trusted to be loyal to the United States and should not be working for the federal government is incensed with U.S. Sen. John McCain’s defense of a top State Department official and is eying a recall drive against Arizona’s senior senator. Wes Harris, the founder and chairman of the Original North Phoenix Tea Party, said he plans to take out a recall petition against McCain. While Harris has many problems with McCain, a mass email he sent out focused solely on the senator’s recent defense of Huma Abedin, a...

    Washington (CNN)-GOP Sen. John McCain is in need of a tech lesson. In an appearance on ABC's "This Week," the senator from Arizona said that iPads and iPhones are "built in the United States of America." But every techie knows that they are, in fact, built in China. McCain touted free trade agreements during the interview and voiced his agreement with President Obma that "innovation is the key to us being able to restore our economy." And though the designs for the iPad and iPhone are home grown in California, the actual manufacturing takes place overseas, in China. "I think...

    Arizona senator and 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain is warning that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s decision not to step down could touch off “a much more dangerous situation,” and he called for the Obama administration to tell Mubarak he must resign immediately. “The volatility of the situation was already very high,” McCain said on Fox News, “and I think it’s been ratcheted up dramatically. “I think the United States had better be more clear in our message to President Mubarak, that we are very clear in our message that he needs to step down,” McCain said.

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Sunday that elections planned for September were a key to maintaining stability in Egypt. McCain, a conservative and ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said a plan to ensure fair elections in the fall needed to be laid out promptly and stuck to in order to ensure the Egyptian people their grievances were being addressed. "There is also a good chance for a real functioning democracy and arguably the most important nation in the middle East," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union."

    The Washington Post ^ | 2011-01-16 | Dan Balz
    Could the long-icy relationship between President Obama and his 2008 presidential opponent, Sen. John McCain, be thawing? McCain (R-Ariz.) took a significant step toward reconciling with the president in a graceful op-ed in Sunday's Washington Post. If that article marks a genuine fresh beginning, it would be one positive thing to come out of the horrific shooting spree in Tucson eight days ago. McCain and Obama will never be comrades in arms. They have too much history, too much mutual ill will and too many philosophical differences for that. In the two years since McCain went down in defeat against...

    Has John McCain "sold his soul" to win re-election? It's a question that briefly flustered the self-ascribed maverick and 2008 presidential nominee when asked Sunday morning by Chris Wallace of Fox News - but it's also an accusation McCain, who defended having changed his position on several issues, is not alone in having to answer. (snip) McCain, along with South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham, called Sunday for a new "Contract with America," Newt Gingrich's political blueprint that helped give Congress back to the GOP in 1994.

    If President Barack Obama made time to travel to southern Arizona, he'd realize the urgency of securing America's border, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday. "I'd love for the president to come and visit the border, unfortunately he hasn't seemed to have time to do so," McCain said on "Fox News Sunday." "If anybody hasn't seen what's happening south of our border, they have been oblivious to the terrible, terrible struggle that's down there." "We've got to get our border secured," the senator declared. (snip) The senator slammed the lawsuit as another example of the disconnect between the beltway and...

    Arizona Sen. John McCain said Sunday this fall's midterm elections could be "seismic," but that Republicans need to make a better direct appeal to the American people in order to sweep their votes. "We need to give voters a reason to be for us, not just against the Democrats," the 2008 Republican presidential nominee said on "Fox News Sunday." McCain said the GOP needs to create another "Contract with America" — the electoral and policy blueprint put forth by Republicans in 1994, the last time the GOP swept Congress. "We need to make a short list of promises to the...

    Intellectual Conservative ^ | 2010-08-27 | Rachel Alexander
    One of the most disliked, liberal Republicans in the Senate used money from conservatives who can't stand him to win reelection against the far more conservative candidate. John McCain easily beat JD Hayworth in the Republican primary for Senate this year, but the reason why is disturbing. The vast majority of the money he spent, $18 million out of a total of almost $24 million, came from contributions to his prior presidential campaign, not this Senate campaign. Many people who contributed to his presidential campaign – including myself – contributed because of Sarah Palin, not McCain. To have our money...
