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.
