We hear that John McCain will be holding a press conference at the CD 5 campaign headquarters of Kirk Adams this morning.
Look for McCain to join his senate twin Jon Kyl in endorsing Adams’ flagging congressional campaign. McCain, known to be a grudge carrier is still miffed over Matt Salmon’s rejection of McCain’s request for an endorsement when he faced a challenge by former Congressman J.D. Hayworth in 2010. You’d think the fact that Salmon donated to McCain in that race would have mitigated his ire over not being able to coerce an endorsement from him. But it appears crossing McCain has its consequences — even years later.
There are other considerations as well. Despite his stroll along the border and tough talk about securing the border with problem-plagued Sheriff Babeu, McCain remains committed to amnesty. Kirk Adams is in the same camp.
Here is evidence going back to 2008 when Adams headlined the host committee of a malleable candidate named Tony Bouie. The fact that Bouie, a lifelong Democrat reregistered a mere five days prior to filing for a state legislative run, was of little consequence to Kirk Adams. He joined Joe Yonko (Chairman-Elect of Cindy McCain’s Hensley & Co./VP of Communications at the Arizona Chamber of Commerce) Jason LeVecke, Mac Magruder, Steve Churci (Supervisor candidate and head of the AZ Restaurant Association PAC) and a long list of other illegal labor profiteers who oppose the Fair and Legal Employment Act, (“employer sanctions”) prefering to hire illegals over American citizens.
None of this is new. We wrote of their exploits and threats back in 2007.
Check out this seemingly endless list of Kirk Adams’ left-leaning campaign donors. No wonder recent polls favor Salmon by a wide margin.
