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.
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.
