    A man who recently served as an adviser to John McCain's rival and once helped launch the Minuteman border watch movement has been accused by his estranged wife of threatening to kill their family and any police who try to protect them. Chris Simcox's wife, who is seeking a divorce, alleges in court documents he brandished a gun and threatened to shoot his family on at least two occasions in late 2009 _ four years after he became instrumental in founding the Minuteman movement, which brought thousands of anti-illegal immigration activists to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border and report suspected illegal...

    Politico ^ | 2010-04-19 | Andy Barr
    A co-founder of the anti-immigration Minutemen on Monday dismissed Sen. John McCain’s new, tougher immigration stance as “shameful election-year politics.” The Arizona Republican, who’s seeking a fifth term this fall, is now supporting an Arizona bill that allows law enforcement officers to demand proof of citizenship – even if they just suspect illegal status – and detain suspects until the federal authorities can determine their citizenship. McCain’s move, announced Monday, is a dramatic shift right from his more moderate, comprehensive approach to most immigration issues. Chris Simcox – co-founder of the Minutemen and a supporter of McCain’s Republican challenger, J.D....

    PHOENIX, ARIZONA. FEBRUARY 10, 2010. Conservative J.D. Hayworth will conclude his statewide media tour announcing his Republican primary challenge to 24-year incumbent John McCain at Leisure World, a senior community McCain infamously dubbed “seizure world.” The Leisure World event will take place on February 17th at 908 S. Power Road, Mesa, AZ 85206. Prior to becoming a 73-year old senior himself McCain derided the well-known retirement community. “Most of the people coming here are not senior citizens moving to Leisure World, I mean Seizure World, I mean, uh, Sun City...I mentioned Seizure World a moment ago...the last election in 1984,...

    CQ Politics ^ | 2009-12-01 | Emily Cadei
    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R) -- two of conservatives' favorite anti-illegal immigration firebrands and potential 2010 candidates for statewide office in Arizona -- have teamed up to raise more than $100,000 as part of a holiday party being held Dec. 5. A recent poll from Rasmussen Reports showed Arpaio leading all comers in the Arizona governor's race, while Hayworth is in a statistical tie with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in a hypothetical primary match-up. Both men have been coy about their intentions but any sort of electoral alliance between the two would strike fear...

    John McCain's problems inside his own party were hardly overcome by his place as its nominee, Rasmussen reports. The new poll shows McCain up just two points, 45% to 43%, in a hypothetical contest with former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, now a popular local radio talker, who's mulling a bid.

    The Washington Independent ^ | 2009-09-15 | David Weigel
    Chris Simcox, the co-founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, is in D.C. this week — he marched in the “taxpayer march” on 9/12, and he was working radio row at the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” lobbying event. And Simcox, who’s running in the 2010 Arizona Republican primary against Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), told me he expected to kick his campaign into higher gear with Ron Paul-style fundraising organized by Trevor Lyman, the activist who organized Paul’s “moneybombs” during the 2008 presidential campaign. Lyman confirmed the plans, though there are no dates yet...

    KINGMAN - Chris Simcox started his campaign for Senate this year with a Web site, a new suit and a bank balance of zero. Simcox, the founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, said he doesn't need millions of dollars to unseat John McCain as senator in 2010. Simcox said he is running a grassroots campaign from the bottom up that would put the power back into "the hands of the people." "I've already lost two campaign managers who've said 'You can't run a campaign this way,'" Simcox said. But Simcox is unapologetic about his distaste for the federal government...

    Chris Simcox, founder of Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat held by John McCain, has denounced the Cap & Trade bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. Simcox said, "The Cap & Trade Bill that squeaked through the House needs to bring a roar of opposition from voters in Arizona and across the nation. This is bad legislation that will, if passed by the Senate, not only bring us much higher costs in energy, as Obama has promised, but it will also bring a heavy cost to our sovereign freedom as a nation....

    PHOENIX, May 31 (UPI) -- Former Republican presidential hopeful John McCain says he's not taking anything for granted in seeking a fifth U.S. Senate term in Arizona in 2010. After spending two years on the presidential campaign trail, in recent months McCain has been crisscrossing Arizona to reconnect with state voters, The Arizona Republic reported Sunday. McCain has retooled his Web site, opened a Senate campaign office in Phoenix and raised $3.6 million for his war chest, the Republic reported. "I'm very pleased with the response that I've gotten when traveling around the state, so I'm confident I'll do well,"...

    The East Valley Tribune, Mesa, Ariz. ^ | 2009-05-14 | Mike Branom
    Sen. John McCain continues to enjoy high approval ratings from Arizona’s voters, according to a new poll, but responses from his own party are potentially worrisome. Rasmussen Reports shows half of the Republicans surveyed believe McCain has lost touch with the GOP base. Conservatives are even more critical of the four-term incumbent. Still, three-fourths of Republican voters believe McCain is likely to win the primary for his seat next year. That total includes 46 percent who say it is very likely McCain’s name will be on the November 2010 ballot. Among all voters in Arizona, 45 percent say McCain has...
