AZ Sen. McSally loses primary challenger…one more to go

Blake Masters out…Daniel McCarthy clearly not ready for prime time

For the better part of the past year, Tucson businessman Blake Masters has been mulling mounting a primary challenge to Republican incumbent AZ Sen. Martha McSally.

Following reported meetings with politicos and donors — Masters, chief operations officer with Thiel Capital investment firm — has had second thoughts about the wisdom of taking on Arizona’s lone GOP senate incumbent in a primary battle. Voters were not flies on the wall during the earnest conversations, but they were sure to include references to aiding and abetting far leftist gun confiscator Mark Kelly, who is funded by open borders Socialist George Soros.

Accolades are in order for Blake Masters’ integrity in this most watched among national senate races. He’s putting party unity — President Trump has unequivocally endorsed Sen. McSally — over his own desires and ego, saying he will work within the party to get Republicans elected and President Trump reelected. Masters is in his mid-thirties. He has plenty of time to explore future elections. With the wisdom he has already exhibited, indications are he would be an excellent future candidate.

Daniel McCarthy doesn’t have that maturity level, (revealing videos) though the few votes he will siphon away have the potential to give Arizona two Dem senators.

The presence of Vice President Mike Pence, making three trips to our state in a year, escorting Sen. McSally to Arizona fundraisers and other events reflects the importance of this U.S. Senate seat.

    I just finished watching the incomprehensible McCarthy interviews. This guy has no clue. He watches himself on the monitors instead of addressing the interviewer. He also claims the pertinent questions he’s asked concerning his campaign funding and his double talk on moving his company out of China are “irrelevant.” He should consider running as a Democrat!!

  2. Trevor says:

    Chris Buskirk is crying over Masters not running. Buskirk knows McCarthy is a joke like most Arizonans.

    I’m tempted to say Daniel McCarthy is sorely in need of a professional campaign adviser, but its clear he’s what my dad used to call a “know it all,” unable or unwilling to take coaching or heed advice. His on camera antics are laughable. Although his bizarre responses reveal a lacking in any relevant experience, he also lacks that basic understanding. I’ve seen lots of candidates over the years. This one is a standout, for all the wrong reasons. I’m still shaking my head at his inability to communicate, which is a necessary skill for a politician, or even a car salesman.

      McCarthy is embarrassing to watch. A campaign consultant would have to be paid an astronomical sum to take this “not ready for prime time” candidate on as a client. It would be a full time job, beginning with teaching him basic grammar and pronunciation. The word “relinquish” does not have a “G” in it, that’s actually a “Q.”

    I know I am in the site that supports McSally. But, it doesn’t bother me because it is more fun arguing with you guys than just moving over to the other sites that agree with me. All I ask is for you to do is watch the last interview with McCarthy. You can see it on Republican Briefs. He has developed quite well.

    Try to look and listen to it rather than just reading your marching orders delivered by the establishment. Prove me wrong with a debate.

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      Jake:
      Seeing Red AZ is a conservative, pro-Trump, pro-life, pro-Second Amendment site. We do not take marching orders from anyone. least of all the “establishment.”

      McSally is not perfect, but then neither are any of us, Pres. Trump, included…which doesn’t keep us from supporting him.

      Daniel McCarthy is an embarrassment, whose colossal ego will likely ensure Arizona has two radically left-wing Democrats in the U.S. Senate. If that happens you can thank the guy you see over your bathroom sink when you’re shaving.

      Were you proud watching him on Sunday Square Off or can you admit his behavior was cringe worthy? He should have been ready for interviews (and he requested this one) before he announced. Running for the U.S. Senate requires far more than McCarthy possesses.

      No debate. Just a few facts

    I am glad to hear that you are pro-those things you listed.. Does that mean you can’t listen to others who might also support those same ideals but might have other factors that should be taken into consideration. I have refrained from casting personal dispersion upon anyone in particular, however, it does seem that when I do state a point of view which is not in line with the establishment it is the first argument I hear. It is like the tale of the bogyman that we tell children will get them unless they are good. Vote our way or the democrats will get you.

    I never stated, or at least I hope I never stated, that “Seeing Red” was following orders from anyone. I use this site because I believe I can freely express my views, without venom, and it will not be censored. I find the site to be visited by many who agree and some that disagree with me. If there are specific rules beyond basic civility, please let me know.

  6. jake sez says:

    By the way, your original reply to my original statement you cast both me and McCarthy in a malicious tone. If those were your personal views, I can accept them as such. If they are a part of the site directions you neutrality isn’t showing. I hope they were personal.

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      Jake,
      You comment here often enough to be aware that this is a conservative, pro-life, pro-Second Amendment site. We “take marching orders” from no one but you accused us of doing so in your January 3, 12:59 pm post in this thread. Then you oddly challenged us to a debate.

      Your readership and comments are appreciated, but baseless accusations are not. Not everyone reading this site is going to agree with us or each other on all issues. That’s as it should be. We are not mindless robots walking in lockstep.

      It was not our intention to insult you. You can support the candidates of your choice. We all have that right. Seeing Red AZ is dedicated to conservative values and keeping Republicans in office. Our notable exception was John McCain, for obvious reasons. No candidate is perfect in all situations. But some are more perfect than others. For that reason, we will continue to support our incumbent senator over an unprepared, inexperienced and frankly, out of his league candidate, who has no chance of winning. He will only aid the well financed campaign of far leftist Mark Kelly by forcing Sen. Martha McSally to unnecessarily spend money in the primary.

    McSally lost us 2 count ’em 2 seats last election. Why anyone still thinks she’s a viable candidate is beyond me. She won’t debate, she’s NOT LIKEABLE and she’s a McCain sycophant. McCarthy is looking better and better. She was appointed by McCain and I’m tired of RINO’s. Rid our state of the remnants he has left behind.

    • State Committeeman says:

      Can you name a single incumbent who debates unprepared novices who are challenging them for their jobs?

      I wouldn’t and I doubt you would either.

  8. jake sez says:

    Sounds like we have a debate going on right here. This is good . Debate is like a laxative for politics. Cleans out a lot of stuff that needs to flushed away.

  9. jojo says:

    McSally was APPOINTED to her seat by the McCain machine. She wouldn’t debate when she wasn’t an incumbent. It’s her campaign strategy because she is so weak. She spent $10Million from DC and the NRCC Ryan RINO’s getting her congressional seat, not debating. She’s afraid of exposure since all she has is a A-10 pilot and even her fellow pilots don’t support her.

    • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

      Sen. McSally has excellent credentials and President Trump’s endorsement. Her voting record is strongly supportive of our president.

      She graduated from the Air Force Academy. Have you bothered to ask Daniel McCarthy what he did following high school? He worked in a call center, not while he was attending college, but instead of it. McSally can also speak English without repeated gaffes.

      As to being appointed, when did that become a crime?. She was previously a two-term member of congress.

      By the way, in case you missed the extravaganzas, McCain is dead.

  10. jojo says:

    I saw the kindness extended by PDJT to the McCain family concerning the extravaganza funeral that was over the top uncalled for in this DEPLORABLES opinion but….McCain’s families behavior during and after the funeral toward our great President was and is continually disgusting. I can’t tell if McSally speaks English because I don’t hear her much and since when did being an entrepreneur and capitalist disqualify anyone for office? Even 50 years ago when I graduated college they were pushing socialist agenda. It’s just our in the open today. PDJT unenthusiastic gave support to McSally one time. He doesn’t trust her on anything and neither do other Republicans.
