    (CNN) - At a Tea Party rally Sunday on the U.S.-Mexico border in support of tough immigration laws, Arizona Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth slammed his opponent, Arizona Sen. 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...

  • AZ-Sen. 2010: McCain spends millions fighting primary challenge ($2.75M in 3 mos. attacking J.D.!)

    John McCain spent more in the last three months than he did the entire 2004 cycle. His campaign announced Wednesday that it raised $2.2 million this quarter and now has $4.5 million cash on hand. The Arizona senator came into 2010 with $5.05 million banked, which means he's spent $2.75 million in the last three months. In 2004, McCain ran unopposed in the GOP primary and spent $2.1 million defeating a poorly funded Democratic opponent in the general. J.D. Hayworth, McCain's primary challenger, hasn't yet released his numbers but a spokesman said they were "pleased" with the figures.

    PHOENIX, Ariz. March 3, 2010. J.D. Hayworth has gained the endorsement of a man who over the years has probably done more to keep Arizona steering in the direction of family values than anyone in the state: Len Munsil. The founder of the Center for Arizona Policy – and 2006 Republican nominee for Governor – today endorsed the campaign of J.D. Hayworth to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate. Hayworth is facing 24-year incumbent John McCain. “I was honored to have Sen. McCain’s endorsement for Governor of Arizona in 2006, and was proud to support him for the presidency of...

    Folks, it's just as simple as this: 1) McCain is anti-free speech. The Roberts Court has declared McCain-Feingold, the ultimate self-serving pro-incumbency act, unconstitutional as we all knew it was from the start. 2) McCain supported and voted for the bailouts which are unconstitutional, anti-liberty, anti-capitalism, anti-free-markets, un-American and not only enabled, but swept the Marxist B. Hussin Obama into power. 3) McCain is pro-global warming which is unconstitutional, anti-capitalism, anti-free-economy, un-American and idiotic! 4) McCain is pro-amnesty for illigal aliens which is anti-capitalism, anti-liberty, un-American and idiotic! 5) Instead of fighting FOR us, FOR the Constitution and FOR Liberty,...

    PHOENIX — Minuteman founder Chris Simcox announced his bid for U.S. Senate against John McCain Wednesday, blaming the senator for deaths caused from violence on the Mexican border and promising a national campaign to unseat the four-term incumbent. “We have the ability to run a national campaign as well as a state campaign,” Simcox said outside the Arizona state Capitol. “There are millions of supporters around the country who have been waiting for some leadership in Washington to take on this border security issue.” Simcox — who as president of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps has toured the country —...

    Social conservatives tolerated John McCain as the party's nominee, but never trusted him, and he now appears to be facing a serious primary from the right in Arizona next year. Chris Simcox, the founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and a prominent figure in the anti-immigration movement, is announcing today he's resigned from the group to run in the 2010 Senate primary. From a forthcoming release: "John McCain has failed miserably in his duty to secure this nation's borders and protect the people of Arizona from the escalating violence and lawlessness," Simcox said. "He has fought real efforts over...
