An energetic crowd of J.D. Hayworth supporters chanting “J.D.! J.D.!” is off and running with nominating petitions in hand and an excitement level not previously observed on the Arizona political scene.
The outpouring of support at the volunteer event clearly moved former Congressman Hayworth, now mounting a challenge to Sen. John McCain and his nearly 3-decade Washington career.
Hayworth’s campaign manger David Payne noted that there might be some McCain staffers in attendance. He welcomed them and pointed out the huge crowd was replicated “throughout the state in Arizona’s 14 other counties, and around the country. Citizens finally have a voice and a representative who will listen and react to their concerns, “ he said .
The effort to replace John McCain has determined foot-soldiers who are ready and willing to demonstrate the power of the grassroots Republicans and Tea Party patriots.
A recent WorldNetDaily poll attests to the fact that McCain is rapidly losing support. The unscientific polling results showed GOP primary challenger J.D. Hayworth with nearly 3,000 votes compared to just 22 for McCain. The discontent has been brewing. As far back as September, Rasmussen Reports conducted a survey of Arizona Republicans, in which an astonishing 61% indicated McCain was out of touch with the party base.
This morning’s crowd of eager Hayworth volunteers attests to this disconnect Arizonans have with John McCain. Get onboard this historic campaign to take back the Republican party and give voice to the people of the state of Arizona.
