Conservatives work to “Replace John McCain”

Senate Conservatives Fund and Conservative Review agree: Arizona deserves principled leadership

In response to John McCain’s reelection campaign announcement (our coverage here) that he is seeking a sixth six-year term in the U.S. Senate, Ken Cuccinelli, President of the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), has the principled answer to bring sanity back to Arizona’s political scene. 

The SCF’s fact-filled web page “Replace John McCain” opens with these truths:

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) officially announced [today] that he will seek a sixth term in the U.S. Senate. Thirty years of cutting deals with the Democrats is not enough for Senator McCain; he wants six more.

There are few Republicans who have betrayed our conservative principles more than John McCain. He wrote the McCain-Kennedy and “Gang of Eight” immigration bills that offered amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. He voted for the Wall Street bailout, to fund the implementation of Obamacare, for the $600 billion “fiscal cliff” tax hike, and to raise the debt limit 14 different times!

John McCain lost his way a long time ago and it’s time to replace him with a strong conservative leader who will support and defend the Constitution.

 “If we’re going to save this great country,” writes Cuccinelli, “we need to elect true conservative leaders who will stand and fight for our principles. Being a U.S. Senator is not an entitlement and Republican voters in Arizona deserve a real choice.”

It’s no surprise the trustworthy and forthright Senate Conservatives Fund was named the Top Conservative PAC in America during the 2014 election cycle. SCF is funded by the grassroots. The average contribution amount to SCF is just $45 and individuals are prohibited from giving more than $5,000 per calendar year.

Conservative Review, another ethical conservative group, analyzed key votes and gave both Arizona senators an “F” rating. Due to staggered terms, only John McCain will appear on the 2016 ballot. Our votes for Arizona’s senator have never been more crucial. When national conservative groups weigh in against the Republican candidate, that fact becomes crystal clear.

 Join the cause.  It matters. Now more than ever.

    Glad to see conservative groups like Conservative Review and Senate Conservatives Fund coming out against Señor Juan McAmnesty.

    What will actually count are the ballots cast by Arizona voters. When those who hold us in distain keep getting swept back into office, people like John McAwful and Jeff McFlaky have no need to consider us. They have the Chamber of Commerce lobbyist money and the media. But we have our votes….IF we use them wisely and leave these RepublicRATs in the dust.

    • Fed Up says:

      How true! It was not by accident that McCain and the Flake were invited to use the Chamber of Commerce event to make his reelection announcement. The group is filled with illegal labor profiteers who applaud all that Arizona’s two lousy senators stand for. They sure as hell don’t represent Arizona citizen/taxpayers who are footing the bill for every aspect of the illegal invasion.

  2. Clementine says:

    The fact that an 80 year old who has been in Washington for decades, says his work isn’t done, is beyond pathetic. He has been the problem all along and still wants to do more damage.

  3. SmallGovt says:

    Term Limits is the only way to get rid of these people.

  4. SmallGovt says:

    I think it is unlikely a qualified Republican will run and win against McCain but it is entirely possible, as Arizona goes more Democrat, you have a Sinema, Giffords/Hubby, Napolitano run against and beat him.

  5. freedom4fighters says:

    Is there a reason that the person to replace Senator John McCain was left out of the article? I know Senator Kelli Ward will win against all odds just like I did in 2012 when the people voted with their heart not their head.

  6. Seen It All says:

    None of the AZ congressmen will chance challenging him. McCain’s venomous operatives whose jobs hinge on McCain’s reelection have been busy digging up or inventing dirt on each of them. Why would they put their families through that when they currently hold fairly secure seats?

  7. Enuff says:

    Today’s AZ Repugnant which I read at the office since I would never buy the leftwing rag, has an editorial titled “McCain runs like he could lose.” My hope is that humiliating defeat will be his well deserved career ender. He should have run as the Democrat he wanted to be back when he was first recruited by RINO House Majority leader Burt Barr to run for John Rhodes‘ congressional seat. That was back before we ever heard of the term RINO, but he filled the bill, always cutting deals with the Dems. Like McCain, Barr regarded himself as an indestructible politico. He was shocked when he ran for governor and lost to conservative Evan Mecham., since like McCain, he thought he could repeatedly stick his finger in the eye of conservatives without any consequences.

    The same shocking fate should befall McCain. A deafening cheer would rise up from Arizona!!

  8. Conservative Since Birth says:

    McCain knows he’s hated by his constituents (except the Democrat constituents). He must have seen the poll on his being the most unpopular senator in D.C. He’ll be ready to fight with millions in the bank and people to find dirt on anyone who runs against him. He’ll have KFYI’s regular programming interrupted for “important campaign news from McCain headquarters.”

    Personally, I did all I could working against him in 2010. I sent JD Hayworth money and showed up when he spoke at venues around Phoenix. The only thing we can do is support SCF and “educate” neighbors and friends about McCain. And show up and vote.

    If he had an honorable bone in his 80 year old body, he’d retire. But the problem with that is – he’d arrange it so that the person who succeeded him would be his hand-picked clone. He’s an evil little man.

  9. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Right now – Blowhard Hugh Hewitt has John McCain on his show – falling all over him. Blowhard Hugh said to McCain – ‘people need you when we’re in trouble in the world. I don’t think you’ll even have a challenger.’

    Two bloviating RINOs.

    • Braveheart says:

      You nailed Hugh Hewitt. He doesn’t even begin to resemble a conservative and blows which ever way the prevailing winds blow. He supported David Schweikert for congress and then less than two years later was bleeting on his show about the need to elect smarmy little porn liar Ben Quayle when the two men were thrust into the same district. through redistricting. Hugh Hewitt is full of ……himself, and lost me as a listener. I now listen to Great Books in the car during drivetime. Much more enlightening.

      McCain?? Give me a break.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        Hugh Hewitt is insufferable. Yesterday he ‘announced’ that he will be on ‘Meet the Press’ this Sunday, a show I cannot watch.
        He has Chuck Todd on his show every week and kisses up to him to a point where you want to vomit.

        Hewitt is in the inner circle with Doug Ducy, McCain, et al in Arizona. He’s here more than he’s at his home in crazy CA.

        Hugh Hewitt is giving Bill O’Reilly a run for his money as far as ego goes. He’ll be a moderator at the first, I think, GOP debate, saying he’ll be “fair” to all. But I’ll bet he can’t stomach Ted Cruz.

  10. SmallGovt says:

    McCain has promised to “Save the A-10” which the Air Force says it doesn’t need. Either it does or it doesn’t but once the Service says it doesn’t need something, continually shoveling taxpayer money down their throat to accept it is the real “treason”. The military also says it would like to close some bases, Close them Tomorrow Morning, and stop the incredible waste.

    • Army Of One says:

      I’m not, nor have I ever been, a McCain supporter. However I oppose any further military base closures and support fully funding our military. I’ve read your ludicrous attacks on our defense and it’s clear you are either a Paulbot or a far leftist who wants us even more vulnerable in a world filled with Muslim terrorists who have sworn to destroy us — even as our equally foolish president attempt to negotiate nuclear armament with them. Thanks to the open borders deceivers we have no idea who is in this country and what they have brought with them. Preparedness is the best defense and that costs money. I doubt you have ever served our country in uniform, but you continually ridicule the importance of those brave men and women who protect your right to be a jerk. Ronald Reagan understood the need for militarily readiness and he was marginalized by people just like you, who referred to his Strategic Defense Initiative as “Star Wars.” He was proven right. America will not survive from a position of weakness.

      • SmallGovt says:

        No, I am neither but it is clear you don’t know or want to know the reality of the Defense Budget, which is there have been no cuts. The Defense Department wants to close unneeded bases but Congress is squealing.

        We are not in a position of weakness in anything except a future financial catastrophe.
