Arizona Senator John McCain still has a lot of spunk, and he isn’t about to put up with any BS from the Tea Party. McCain is 78-years old, but there are strong indications that he is going to run for re-election in 2016, and he is consolidating his support within the Arizona Republican Party.
In January of this year, members of the Arizona State Republican committee lead by Tea Party supporters censured the McCain, the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee, for not being conservative enough, particularly on the issues of immigration and the Affordable Care Act.
McCain’s reaction was immediate. Since then, McCain’s supporters, and his closest associates, has been on a campaign to rid the Arizona Republican Party of Tea Party officials, and replace them with Senator McCain’s allies prior to McCain’s expected bid for a sixth term in 2016.
McCain is more concerned about Democratic opposition to his re-election campaign, so he is crushing Tea Party opposition from within his own party long before the 2016 campaign starts.
FK – Mccommie has done much damage to our republic. Arizona must be a really corrupt state to keep sending such trash to the Senate. But then we keep sending McConnell. I can claim I didn’t vote for it.
We’re better off with the commies in power because it gets the republicrat idiots off the couch and the golf course and forces them to pay attention to the war that is being waged on Human Liberty and the Bill of Rights by both mainstream parties.
That’s the only way enough will wake up to the reality of what will be required.
