Republican McSally upsets Barber in AZ CD 2

…And then there were five R‘s: Franks, Gosar,  McSally, Salmon & Schweikert

If you’re ever tempted to think your vote doesn’t count, remember this razor thin Congressional District 2 race decided today after a recount and court battles.  Retired Air Force Colonel Martha McSally, the first female pilot to fly combat missions, emerged victorious from battle again, taking out Democrat U. S. Rep. Ron Barber by 167 votes in the nation’s final 2014 recount.

    As for me I’ll wait to see if we even have one Constitutional GOP Rep. in DC, after the Vote on HR 5759, verbage put in the bill to Match Obama’s definition for Amnesty ( for humanitarian purposes where the aliens are at imminent risk of serious bodily harm or death. / Note; This is the part of the bill that will allow Obama to give Amnesty / Legal Status as this if you recall is what he used for the children at our borders just recently and has also used on previous occasions, has to make you question just what was the GOP thinking about when they passed this bill. ) so for me I’ll wait and see if she’s just another one of them. God Bless You All; Van

    Let’s hope she doesn’t fold like the others. Wet noodle GOP politicos are a dime a dozen in Arizona.

    I’m hoping for the best, but not anticipating miracles from someone running from a majority southern Arizona district. I don’t realistically have expectations of her veering too far right if she wants to be reelected in this goofy area.

      I can tell you right now she’s a rino. McCain called her in Germany and told her to return and run for Giffords seat. Boehner does funds raisers for her. Kyl is a huge supporter. None of the people she served with endorsed her. The GOP put $10,000,000.00 and 5 years into getting her elected.
      Chuck Wooten, true constitutional conservative, ran against her in the primaries. The GOP tried to take him out 6 times. It was disgusting. McSally is planning on taking McCain’s place when he retires. It’s the GOP plan and money is there. That’s all anyone needs to know about how she will vote.

    This was the problem back in 12 with her and watched it again this yr., she from what I see hasn’t the political skills to take McCain’s place but then never know what the future holds. I’m certain McCain will put who he wants in his place as he controls the GOP in AZ with the help of most the elected officials in AZ who want to climb the ladder. God Bless You; Van

    no big deal, another big govt rino.
    just another vote for whatever boehnor and the CoC demand.

    The boyish Mzzzz. McMcMcSally is RINO from the ground up. Let’s not forget that after she got soundly spanked by a conservative Republican patriot in the 2012 special election primary for Gifford’s empty seat, she and her staff went to work to support Ron Barber in the special election to defeat the Republican voters’ choice. They tried to help Barber get the seat, which he did.

    The McGOP spent millions, as described above, to defeat a true conservative Republican patriot in the ’14 primary, and funded McMcMcSally’s harassment suit to try to get him thrown off the ballot. Ron Barber was actually the better AZonan in the general election, fighting with conservatives to save Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, fighting for the A10 Air Fleet and for Ft. Huachuca in Sierra Vista while McMcMcSally was keeping silent company with McBoehner.

    McMcMcSally is a perfect addition to the traitorous AZ4, doing everything that Big Daddy RINO McBoehner and King RINO McTraitor tell her to do –another carpetbagger for the McTraitor Team. AZ and US are in big McTrouble.

    God bless America.

    I’ll take her any day over Barber. She was the only one that could have beater him.

    Watching the Dems exploit the Giffords shooting every election cycle for their own political gain was disgusting, I’m glad the old playbook didn’t work this time.

    No she’s not a rock ribbed conservative, but in that district, I’ll take a moderate conservative over a Left-wing Obama acolyte any day.

  8. Clair Van Steenwyk says:

    She’s I believe a John McCain Prodigy so hold on and see what happens to you and then decide what’s better, someone who will vote with Boehner or not, time will tell.

    Here’s good news: Mc-McSally has announced her “transition” team and chairing it is none other than open homosexual and former invader-sucking U.S. Representative (Dist 5 & Dist 8) Jim Kolbe. Kolbe, because of his pervered lifestyle and invasion-cheering stance, was the only Republican that could win a congressional election in Old Puebloland from 1985 to 2007. He hasn’t been so aroused since Mexican invaders burglarized his home.

  10. Borderhawk says:

    It would have been a victory for conservatives if she lost. Barber is a nobody. Gun control is not hinging on this race.

    Paul McGosar and McSalmon are taking orders from Steve King for the moment to stay out of trouble with the GOP base.

    The supposedly more conservative Schwekert and Franks are doing nothing.

    Could you imagine if the AZ house delegation was V. Parker, McSally, J. Paton, McSalmon, Gosar, Franks and Schwekert.

    These guys would be 24/7 RINOS with no fear of protest votes in favor of Dems or a primary challenge.

    McSally is as popular with Boehner. Couldn’t even break 70%. McSally outspent her rival more than Boehner did.

    Renee Ellmers in NC outspent her rival more than Cantor did in terms of proportion.

    The AZ delegation would be as bad as Missouri where they all voted for the rule with Boehner. Fortunately Missouri at least has a state GOP Chair Ed Martin who hates amnesty and hates Thad Cochran. He tried to censure Henry Barbour.

    Do not trust McSalmon or Gosar but the AZ delegation actually voted better with half the delegation voting against the rule.

    If it comes down to Gosar vs McCain in 2016 Ill take the scared RINO nobody Gosar over big RINO McCain. We need to coalesce around the other-than-Mccain candidate.

    Steve King needs to threaten a primary challenge against his friend Chuck Grassley in 2016 just to piss off the establishment GOP over canning Jeff Sessions for budget. Grassley is pretty good for a Senator who won in a state Obama carried twice. King can probably scheme his way into keeping his Iowa 4th district nomination as well if he were to lose the Senate chase. Steve King got 40,000 votes in a primary when he had no primary challenger. He could probably win the 4th district with write-in votes as a backup.

      I’m really happy to see all of our Congressional Delegation standing up for the Rights of Sony and Increased Military Spending on Tanks etc. the Army doesn’t want, Cuba and more, my question is when will they Stand Up to SCOTUS, POTUS and yes Congress and HR 5759 for US, please read the following and then lend a hand.
      License Illegals / AZ Must Nullify Federal Supreme Courts Slavery
      AZ and other states are protected under the US Constitution and the compliance with it by a Moral People and Government, we have neither, so unless those opposed to this are ready to remedy it by doing what they did in the 60’s just more talk, chatter or whatever else you want to call it, Civil Disobedience, which is what
      those all over the country have been doing by supporting violence against Law & Order with the support of the media, Hollywood and pro athletes etc..
      If those who say they want Freedom won’t Stand Up and Fight for it by a simple demonstration then I don’t really believe they’re at all interested in keeping it. It’s time for All Freedom Loving Americans to join together and March especially here in AZ, we don’t seem to have anyone in DC taking a Stand with US on this last ruling by the US Supreme Court ordering US to allow Illegals to attain a form of Legality by getting AZ State Issued Drivers License, well what do We do about it, since it seems to be obvious that those in office have no intention of doing anything and monitoring them isn’t working, nor writing, phoning, messaging etc. I’m hoping this will be the straw that breaks the Peoples Backs and moves them to March, if not get ready for more Government Inflicted Slavery.
      The US Constitution gave us the tools we need; the remedy is Nullification / 10 Amendment of the Constitution; the States inherent authority to enforce the law, Article I Sect. 8, Clause 15 & Section 10, Clause 3 to secure our borders. Nullification of the Courts, Congress & White House will fix the problem; US Constitution gives US Our God Granted Unalienable Rights & our Founding Fathers through “divine” inspiration put into that divinely inspired document and that is the US Constitution including ARTICLE V & Especially the TENTH Amendment, time to Enforce It.
      The Citizens of the State of AZ need to March for Freedom and hoping some of you will feel the same if so, lets set a time and day to meet at the Capitol and see if we can get the same participation for what’s Right as they do for what’s wrong, let us know, we’re ready to go.
      We have failed to do the job, by allowing Congress, White House and of course the Courts to Ignore & Enslave We the People by Legislation & Interpretation.
      God Bless You All; Clair & Jean Van Steenwyk / Americans
