In its post, “Key Ariz. Republicans: Sen. McCain Has Abandoned Core GOP Principles,” the New American notes what Breitbart News picked up on Sunday.
The New American site observes that links provided by Maricopa County GOP Briefs connect to stories reporting on flack McCain is taking for his pro-intervention position with regard to Syria.
Of particular interest is an article containing data proving senators who approved a strike on Syria “got more defense contractor dough.” It directs readers to yet another negative depiction on the Daily Caller, which substantiates that John McCain — topping the list of ten Senate Foreign Relations Committee members who voted to attack Syria — is the leading recipient, garnering 83 percent more in campaign contributions from defense contractors than the seven senators who voted against it. McCain raked in about $176,000.
This Seeing Red AZ post “Breitbart: McCain out of step with AZ Republicans” contains the Breitbart exposé. Arizona’s Republican discontent over McCain’s abandonment of GOP principles is grabbing the national spotlight.
It’s about time.
