    FoxNews - On The Record with Greta Van Susteren ^ | March 28, 2010 | Palin interview transcript
    PALIN: "We don't want our Republican -- our senators and our representatives to hold hands with the Democrats if the Democrats are going to keep growing government. And why -- why engage in bipartisanship there if the Democrats are doing the wrong thing? We want our Republicans to stand tall, stand strong for smaller, smarter government, for those principles that so many independents and those in the Republican Party have believed in all these years. We want them to stick with those principles." http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,590022,00.html

    As the former running mates prepare to campaign together for the first time since 2008, sources familiar with them say they have chatty, personal phone calls and remain friendly even though Palin attacked many of McCain’s loyal staffers. Shushannah Walshe takes us inside their relationship and what it means for McCain’s campaign. This weekend John McCain and Sarah Palin are bringing the band back together and hitting the road in support of the Arizona senator’s reelection battle. On Friday, there will be a rally and picnic in Tucson followed by a private fundraiser. The next day, the former presidential ticket...

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — U.S. Sen. John McCain says the race for the Republican nomination for the seat he currently holds should be about fixing the economy, not about political ideology.At a campaign rally in Tucson on Saturday, McCain enlisted one of the GOP's rising stars — Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown. McCain is facing the toughest re-election campaign of his Senate career.

    TUCSON - J.D. Hayworth, a former congressman and conservative AM radio host, nearly lost his voice this week delivering fiery attacks on John McCain, the Republican 2008 presidential nominee whom Hayworth accuses of betraying his party and getting too cozy with East Coast liberals. The four-term senator, says Hayworth, "is not the John McCain we knew." Hayworth’s assault from the right in a GOP primary has forced McCain to launch an early, aggressive defense of his seat. And today, McCain will attempt to enhance his conservative bona fides by hosting the party’s new darling, US Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts,...

    The Hill ^ | 3/4/10 | Sean Miller
    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is using J.D. Hayworth’s legal trust to hammer his primary opponent about his entanglement in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal. Meanwhile, Hayworth’s former House colleagues are donating thousands to help him escape a legal debt they say he accumulated facing false allegations. The McCain campaign is ratcheting up pressure on the former congressman to disclose the donors to the Freedom in Truth Trust (FITT) he set up in 2008 to pay down legal bills stemming from the Abramoff lobbying scandal. Hayworth came under investigation by the Department of Justice after he received campaign contributions from Abramoff...

    PHOENIX – In terms of “major” as United States Senate candidate J. D. Hayworth billed his announcement here outside the McCain 2010 headquarters, let’s give it a feh. But as political theater goes, it wasn’t bad. Mr. Hayworth, whose challenge to Mr. McCain is now one of the more closely watched primary contests in the country, strolled into the senior senator’s campaign office Thursday morning and handed the receptionist a letter requesting that Mr. McCain join him for debates or town hall meetings across the state between now and the August contest, a press gaggle on his heels.

    The Washington Post ^ | February 18, 2010 | George F. Will
    The Republican presidential nominee, an Arizona senator, was a maverick, which was part of his charm. He spoke and acted impulsively, which was part of his problem. Voters thought his entertaining dimensions might be incompatible with presidential responsibilities. For example, he selected a running mate most Americans had never heard of and who had negligible experience pertinent to the presidency. This was 1964. Barry Goldwater, whose seat John McCain occupies, chose to run with Bill Miller, a congressman from Lockport, N.Y., near Buffalo. Miller, Goldwater cheerfully explained, annoyed Lyndon Johnson. After the Goldwater-Miller ticket lost 44 states, Miller retired to...
