Our appreciation to those of you who have noticed and commented on the national attention Seeing Red AZ is garnering. Between the hits we are getting from POLITICO, (Sheriff Joe fundraises for a potential McCain primary challenger), the liberal Huffington Poster Dawn Teo, the National Journal’s Hotline On Call, The Hill, and The Washington Independent, alone, our stats for the past two days are off the charts! We couldn’t have gotten this national coverage without J.D. Hayworth’s powerful name attracting such prominent attention.
This is a clear indication that the nation is watching Arizona’s 2010 senate race and senses the vulnerability of John McCain, who won his home state by a mere 10 percentage points in the 2008 presidential match-up. Just two months ago, Rasmussen Reports headlined that a decisive 61% of Arizona Republicans say McCain is out of touch with the party base.
Although other candidates have entered the race to affect a challenge, they are clearly second-stringers. Former Congressman Hayworth is formidable. If he declares for this seat, we believe it is his.
