    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...
  • McCain backtracks on amnesty & it’s not even 2016 (AZ Senate primary)

    Under the headline, “McCain retreats on immigration reform,” the daily runs this report and video clip from McCain’s interview with Brahm Resnik on KPNX 12 News’ Sunday Square Off,* which aired this morning at 8 a.m. The entire Sunday Square off show can be viewed here. (SNIP) McCain: “We need to assure the American people that the border is secure. People in AZ are so cynical about the promises that have been made about a secure border. Doing the right things and spending the right money, we can have a 90 percent effective control of the border within two years.”

Cary Grant exceeds in a John Wayne/Humphrey Bogart-type role as their leader and the beautiful Rita Hayworth impresses in one of her earliest performances as his ex-flame. Definitely one of Hawks' best and the finest of his 5 films starring Mr. Grant.

  • Hayworth seeking to withhold disaster money unless it is offset by budget cuts

    08/31/2011 11:52:02 PM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 7 replies
    The Republicans' demand for additional budget cuts comes as the Federal Emergency Management Agency is set to run out of assistance money that is used to repair roads and bridges, provide temporary housing and give other kinds of help to communities hit by natural disasters. The agency has $800 million left in that fund. That sum will not be enough to cover damage inflicted by Hurricane Irene. In New York alone, Gov. Andrew Cuomo expects an economic loss of more than $1 billion. Damage to the entire East Coast is expected to total more than $7 billion. Hayworth's stance was...

    As rain splatters the windows of Sen. John McCain’s second-floor office on Capitol Hill, the 74-year-old Arizona Republican leans back, clasps his hands, and recalls the Nineties. Brinksmanship, he says, cost the party then, and it could cripple Republicans this summer — especially if Rep. Michele Bachmann gets her way. Over in the House, “I am told that it is very difficult,” McCain says. “There are Republicans who are committed, like Michele Bachmann, to vote against raising the debt limit under any circumstances.” Bachmann, he warns, is acting “sort of like Senator Obama did.”(snip) Yet as poorly as Obama has...

    FISHKILL — Republican challenger Nan Hayworth won a surprisingly comfortable victory over Democratic Rep. John Hall Tuesday in a race that polls suggested would be a dead heat. Hayworth led the two-term Democratic incumbent by 54 percent to 46 percent as of 11 p.m., as results from the five counties in New York's 19th Congressional District came in. Hayworth supporters erupted with applause at the Hotel Sierra in Fishkill when the race was called for her at 11:20 p.m. "Go, Nan, go!" they chanted. Hayworth sounded a central campaign theme in her victory speech. "Our first priority will be to...

    The National Rifle Association's PAC is backing Republican Nan Hayworth in NY-19 against incumbent Democratic Rep. John Hall, another outside source that could prove helpful in a heated contest. The question will now be which other House races in New York the NRA looks to get involved with. The press release, sent out by Team Hayworth is after the jump. The endorsement has value for Hayworth in that particular district (whereas it wouldn't in other parts of the state closer to New York City). It also comes as Hayworth had a victory in court - she beat a challenge by...

Harry Reid has tacked the Dream Act onto a defense bill which will be voted on before the election. What do you think, Arizona? How will McCain vote? Note that McCain explains in the beginning that there are other senators who do not support the Dream Act and that will make passage difficult. He promises...

    GILBERT, Ariz. — The cast of "Survivor" has nothing on Sen. John McCain. Once labeled a vulnerable incumbent, the four-term Arizona Republican is the clear front-runner against challenger J.D. Hayworth after spending some $20 million and casting his GOP opponent as a late-night infomercial huckster in a series of devastating ads. The primary is Tuesday. McCain, who turns 74 on Aug. 29, has survived the deadly 1967 explosion on the USS Forrestal, 5 1/2 years in a Vietnam POW camp after being shot down near Hanoi and skin cancer. Politically, he has persisted through the Keating Five savings and loan...

    PHOENIX, Arizona (AFP) — Senator John McCain appears set to romp home in Arizona's Republican primary, but only after tacking right and spending millions of dollars to counter a threat from a former conservative radio show host. 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. Results such as Arizona may predict whether insurgent candidates, especially Republicans backed by staunchly anti-government Tea Party groups, will continue to make advances over those...

    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...

    A Senator’s journey from bipartisan maverick to right-wing ideologue—one flip-flop at a time. In theory, John McCain's right-wing madness could come to an end on Tuesday, when he is expected to prevail over former Rep. JD Hayworth in Arizona’s Senate primary. Faced with a stiff conservative challenge, McCain has spent this election cycle defying many of his long-held moderate positions. In fact, his transformation from aisle-crossing, party-bucking maverick (see this 1998 Mother Jones interview) to cookie-cutter conservative has been years in the making. During his 2008 presidential bid, he began to lurch rightward on a litany of issues in his...

John McCain, the Republican Party's presidential candidate in 2008, was vulnerable to an upset from the right when he sought reelection to the Senate this year. Now, in the home stretch toward Arizona’s primary election on Tuesday, such talk has largely faded.   -SNIP-   Like Hayworth, there are others who don't buy the notion that McCain has given up on enacting comprehensive immigration reform, which includes a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants. For instance, Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee (ALIPAC) announced Thursday it’s mobilizing a network of...

A Rasmussen Reports poll released on July 26 showed McCain with a 54-34 lead over Hayworth. Rasmussen conducted the automated push-button telephone poll of 595 likely Republican primary voters on July 21.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely GOP Primary Voters in the state shows McCain attracting 54% of the vote, while Hayworth earns 34%. For Hayworth, this represents another decline in support. In April, he picked up 42% of the vote. That fell to 40% in May, 36% in June and 34% in July. For McCain, the 54% level of support is his highest yet. “Some other candidate” picks up seven percent (7%) support, and six percent (6%) are undecided....

Since calling on McCain to pull the ad because Babeu called in to a white-supremacist radio show -- apparently without knowing it was a show for racists -- Hayworth's now taking his lumps from Arizona lawmen defending the sheriff. This afternoon, the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police put out a press release calling on Hayworth to retract his comments about Babeu and demanding an apology.

McCain, Hayworth and political newcomer Jim Deakin squared off Friday in the first of two televised debates before Arizona's Aug. 24 Republican primary.

    Former Rep. J.D.

The Justice Department is suing to block the statute, claiming it illegally preempts federal law. “It should come as no surprise that any number of people who advocate open borders and advocate no enforcement of the law, including this current administration, are trying to throw up these roadblocks,” Hayworth said on the CBS program “Face the Nation.” Hayworth is challenging Sen.

    It was apparent last night why McCain has only agreed to participate in two Senate debates with JD Hayworth, because of the awkwardness attempting to explain his flip-flopping back to the right now that it is an election year. 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.

From what I gathered, Deakin fumbled badly; especially in his closing remarks. Sounds like J.D. got some good shots at McCain's hypocrisy. But.... I dunno. Comments anyone?

    PHOENIX - By the time the U.S. Senate Republican candidates completed the first question in a live televised debate Friday night, J.D. Hayworth had already blasted incumbent Sen. John McCain for supporting "amnesty" and McCain had mocked Hayworth for his role in a late-night infomercial. The fast and furious debate in Phoenix also featured tea-party activist Jim Deakin, who said both of his opponents had failed to adhere to a strict reading of the Constitution and both failed to secure the U.S. borders. The primary election is Aug. 24. With Hayworth lagging in polls and peppered seemingly nightly by ads...

    From CNN: Sen. John McCain is widely ahead of his two primary challengers, according to a new poll.A Behavior Research Center survey released Thursday indicates that 64 percent of likely Arizona Republican primary voters support McCain, with19 percent backing former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, five percent supporting Jim Deakin, a Tea Party activist, and 12 percent undecided. The primary is scheduled for August 24. Why such a gap? "The simple reality is that McCain took his (Hayworth's) border and SB 1070 issue away from him, and then nailed him on ethics issues pertaining to being a lobbyist and so on," said...

    In the spring of 2009, Nevada senator Harry Reid approached John McCain with a message, ostensibly from President Barack Obama. “If you put an immigration bill in, we’ll get behind it,” Reid told McCain, according to a person briefed on the conversation. McCain, who’d failed to pass an immigration bill co-sponsored with Ted Kennedy in 2007, and was roundly whipped by his own party for the attempt, was infuriated by the offer. “Me, put a bill in and he’ll get behind it?” McCain asked. “Why doesn’t the president put a bill in and I’ll get behind it?”

    The Republican 'maverick' bends in the wind of Tea Party-style politicsWhen does being a maverick turn into a shameless flip-flopper? Pretty much about now, according to many observers of the long and storied political career of former Republican presidential candidate John McCain.Senator McCain, pictured, is now caught in one of the toughest political fights of his life, facing off in a primary fight against the Tea Party-style challenger JD Hayworth. And he is doing it in Arizona, which has just passed a strict anti-illegal immigrant law so controversial the White House is taking it to court.All this means that McCain's...
