National news begins covering AZ GOP aversion to McCain
Under a banner “AZ GOP issues formal rebuke of John McCain,” the widely read Drudge Report links to Breitbart, sending readers to Official Arizona GOP Body Passes Formal Rebuke of John McCain.
The report details the censure of John McCain contained in a resolution overwhelmingly passed by the elected Precinct Committeemen of Legislative District 26. This is the second such report in days, telling of the Republican grassroots dissatisfaction with the party establishment — personified by McCain, imperiously disregarding the AZ GOP base.
But Jeff Flake doesn’t get a pass. Though McCain’s sycophantic protégée, he has earned no such entitlement. Amnesty promoter Flake showed his duplicity and brazen disregard of Arizonans in the congress where he served 6 terms after pledging in 2000 to limit himself to three two-year terms. He later blithely admitted, “I lied.”
Calling out both John McCain and Jeff Flake, district officer Matt Papke said “John McCain is the poster child for term limits, his back room dealings, insatiable war drum, and eroding base, call to question why this man is our Senator. It is my hope that Senators McCain and Flake work to reestablish their relationships with the boots on the ground members of Legislative District 26 Republicans.”
