It should tell you everything you need to know about liberal U.S. Senator John McCain when Democrats are praising him and Republicans are censuring him.
If you hadn’t heard by now, the Maricopa County Republican Party recently censured McCain for his leftward lean. Various groups in McCain’s own Republican Party in Arizona have been censuring and expressing displeasure with McCain since 2005. It’s nothing new. But look what the Democrats’ candidate for governor, Fred DuVal is saying about McCain:
“Moments ago, John McCain was censured by the elected leaders of Arizona’s Republican Party. What an outrageous response to the good work Senator McCain did crafting a reasonable solution to fix our broken immigration system.
67 percent of Arizonans now opine that Arizona needs to elect someone to the U.S. Senate with new ideas and interests. Only 21 percent now believe that John McCain deserves another six year term. This view is shared across the state in that the proportion saying they would prefer a new U.S. Senator reaches 72 percent in Maricopa county, 67 percent in Pima county and 58 percent in the rural counties. Further, 61 percent of those are registered Republicans and 67 percent call themselves politically conservative hold the same view.
In recent days, Republican committee members of Santa Cruz County, Maricopa County, Apache County, Cochise County, Gila County, and Mohave County all passed censure resolutions against “Lefty” McCain. That’s a stinging indictment and reflective of mounting grassroots disenchantment with McCain over the past several years. It’s no wonder McCain and his shadow, Sen. Jeff Flake once again dissed the GOP by boycotting the recent state party convention.
We endorse any solid conservative who runs against McCain in his next bid for re-election. During that campaign, he needs to be held accountable for his unsupportable efforts on behalf of the homosexual agenda and the gun control leftists.
