AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham has sent out a news update from the Arizona Republican Party, which includes a message of congratulation to Kurt Davis —- referred to in the email as a “solid conservative.”
Davis, recently rotated into the chairmanship position at the Arizona Game and Fish Commission, is a longtime political consultant. Among his previous posts was a stint as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs (which has a more trustworthy ring than lobbyist) for former Attorney General Grant Woods. An iffy Republican, Woods has frequently threatened to switch parties, and has been notable for endorsing Democrats. Both men are close confidants of John McCain —- a questionable trio of solid conservatives, to be sure.
In this press release, Davis is referred to as an “avid angler,” a definition that applies whether or not he‘s casting a fishing line. Oddly missing from his bio is any mention of his association with the toxic John McCain.
And speaking of McCain, when the very senior senator (he’ll be 80 by Election Day) announced his intention to seek a sixth six-year senate term, who but McCain’s operative and former campaign strategist is called on to assess his chances? You guessed it! None other than Kurt Davis, who tells The Hill, “I always call him the terminator candidate.”
Robert Graham concludes his message with, “Congratulations Kurt, see you on the water!”
A more fitting wrap-up might have been, “Congratulations, Kurt. Look forward to swimming with the McSharks with you!”
