McCain quandary: Court Latino voters or support Trump?

McCain goes all out for Hispanics, will blame loss on Trump

TPM  DC examines three GOP U.S. Senate races — John McCain’s among them — and their schizophrenic courting of Hispanic voters while attempting to keep Donald Trump supporters on board their campaigns.  It’s a dicey road for the candidates from Arizona, Florida and Nevada.

McCain, so intensely unpopular both nationally and with Arizona’s grassroots conservative base, that he was censured by elected state delegates at the Statutory Republican Party Meeting — later the object of his retaliatory attempts to purge them by using an out-of-state Obama donor — is now fighting for his political life.  His latest tactic is to blame Donald Trump for his woes, (audio obtained by Politico) rather than admit that he is reviled by Republicans who view him with contempt.

John McCain, who has courted the racist LaRaza (“The Race”) and had “Mexico First” Juan Hernandez as an integral part of his failed presidential bid, currently has a Hispanic outreach team, Unidos Con McCain, in place to garner the votes of those who are more concerned with the continued flow of illegals than national security. He announced three AZ Hispanic leaders would co-chair the committee and hired a local Telemundo reporter to serve as his Hispanic outreach director. The team has been traveling Arizona, organizing bilingual door knocking activities and setting up Spanish-speaking phone banking. English-speaking American taxpayers get the back of McCain’s gnarled hand.

The ever-opportunistic Jason Rose, who the leftist TPM claims “ran” JD Hayworth’s 2010 Primary challenge to McCain, now does a “complete 180,” explaining how McCain has been effective in reaching out to the Latino Community in his desperate attempt at re-election this year.

Actually Rose has spent an entire PR career making a bee-line for money, no matter the source or the ideological bent. When Hayworth discovered Rose’s affiliation with Open Borders efforts in Texas, not to mention his sense of the Flack’s inability to employ any sense of discretion, the former Congressman chose others to operate his senate campaign. Rose promptly went on a “Twitter rant,” demeaning Hayworth’s efforts.

Then, Rose and his lawyer wife, Jordan, fell over themselves getting back into the good graces of John McCain — including making donations to the very campaign Rose at one point hoped to defeat.

The 80-year-old running for another 6-year senate term is as opportunistic and devoid of ethical encumbrances as the PR operative, so it’s not surprising that Rose has found a role vouching for the very senior senator’s “virtue” and his appeals for “diversity.”

But that “diversity” is instead “divisiveness.” It has divided the GOP; it has sidetracked efforts to secure the border; it has ignored the national security imperative of ending illegal immigration.

McCain hopes to con Arizonans one last time — and Rose looks for his next thirty pieces of silver. Quite a team.

    Open primary gives it to mccain again in all likelyhood, closed primaries can give us True Americans First conservative nominees like Trump, who has set the record for republican primary votes, and yet gop insiders, globalist and open borders lovers still are fighting him.

    jonny amnesty chooses foreign invaders over America and Americans like most gop insiders and politicians whos open borders globalist palms are greased by those who profit from it.

    the gop is and has been for quite some time now, anti-America and anti-American, just follow their actions and the money they get for them.

    This is why Trump resonates, he is the anti-gop.


    the azgop does whatever it cant to thwart the will of the voter, they will next be pushing to become a caucus state so a small handful of insiders control the outcome.

    They gop deserves to go the way of the dodo bird, their embrace of open borders and globalism over America and Americans just to obtain CoC bribes makes them every bit as scurvy as the democrats, but at least the democrats dont insult, fight and attack their own base and will usually fight for much of what their base wants.

    gop just the opposite and in fact tell us we are stupid for thinking America and Americans should come first and fight us every step of the way.

    mccain IS the gop, robert graham IS the azgop.

    both win their reelections handily, they do represent what the gop wants.

    those of us who disagree are the minority in the party or they wouldnt be in their positions.

    1st…Great post, SRAZ!!

    2nd, IF mcTraitor gets re-elected, he’ll thwart every promise Mr. Trump has made, unlike his promises to do this to his “friend”, mr. obama.

    …otherwise, I repeat;

    86 TH’ 80 YEAR OLD S.O.B.!!

    …OH! And 1 more thing…jason rose needs to be slapped upside th’ head…repeatedly…

    In decades past, McCain courted U.S. military veterans.

    But now, since the Obama regime has been successful in hastening their demise due to the continuing atrocities at V.A. hospitals and clinics, it seems that McCain will have to go elsewhere to pander.

    Here’s what the Director of the V.A. had to say recently—–he compared waiting for medical care at V.A. facilities to waiting in line at Disneyland.

    Here’s the proof:

    Mr. POW McCain needs to fix this. As if he’s ever fixed anything for the better.

    • azgary says:

      the only “fixing” mccain does is for lobbyists and his crony buddies.

      hes a true party man

    • Doc says:

      I’ve waited in line @ Disneyland…AND I’ve waited for (& am currently, & forevermore WILL BE, sufferring the effects of…) waited for service @ the V.A., and the V.A. secretary ALSO NEEDS to be slapped upside th’ head, along with mr. jason rose, in th’ aforementioned fashion, and th’ list of those people just continues to get longer by th’ day! We’ll all have to work in shifts…

    The Republican party has left We the People as shown by their disdain for We the People. The Republican establishment is reaping what THEY have sown. I have spoken to so many people who say I can’t stand McCain but there is no else to vote for. And I say WHAT??!!! Yes there is – Dr. Kelli Ward, she is the real deal. Then barely talk her up and people immediately say well, I’m voting for her! Hopefully they will – we’ve got to get the word out. McCain hates We the People, loves himself only. McCain has NO integrity or honor – never has.

    • Frankly Speaking says:

      You’re right about the failures of the McCain controlled AZ GOP, Kathy. Dr. Kelli Ward is the real deal That’s why John McCain is working so hard with his operatives and willing recruits to dilute the vote and take her out. He swaggers about the General Election and being up against Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, but it’s former state senator and medical doctor Kelli Ward who actually scares the bejeebers out of the ancient and egotistical McRINO. Imagine the shamelessness of running again for 6 more years at his age!

    This expose of LaRaza written by the late Republican Congressman Charlie Norwood, D.D.S., who represented Georgia’s Tenth Congressional District. It’s as true today as when it was written.
    Read it and then ask yourself why John McAmnesty would meet with and support these racist radicals. These are his people, not us!

    The linked Politico article is beyond amusing, it’s hilarious. It actually refers to a group known as the “National Association for Latino Elected and Appointed Officials” as “nonpartisan.” How many of the members of that so-called “nonpartisan” group do you think are anything other than Democrats?
