Preposterous braggadocio from Pinocchio McCarthy

Ignoring the fact that Arizona’s incumbent Republican U.S. Senator, Martha McSally, a former two-term member of congress — who has the unequivocal support of Pres. Donald Trump —  is running for reelection, unqualified candidate Daniel McCarthy claims he can’t wait to get beyond the primary so he can debate Mark Kelly on his China connections.

McCarthy’s own company is run out of China, which he told the Channel 12 Sunday Square Off interviewer was “Irrelevant.” He actually claimed, “My business has nothing to do with me running for the Senate.”

Decades ago Walt Disney Studios produced the Pinocchio fantasy starring a wooden puppet whose nose grew with each lie he told. The production featured the song, “When You Wish Upon a Star.” Daniel McCarthy should incorporate it as his campaign theme.

McCarthy, who campaigns under the boastful handle, “Demand Daniel,” obviously wishes to be competitive in this race but falls far short. The Federal Election Commission shows him with a paltry $11,797.95 cash on hand, still on the books from his initial self-funding infusion of $236,592.42 and a few scant donations.  Lacking televised ads and common sense, he shelled out a bundle for his campaign bus featuring full color wrap-around images of himself.

SRAZ has written about McCarthy numerous times. These are a few columns:

    Daniel McCarthy is an arrogant buffoon. That volatile combination is combustible. Watch him waver in the wind and his campaign blow up.

  2. Longtime GOP PC says:

    I spoke with McCarthy at the Maricopa County meeting and was appalled by his ignorance and lack of communication skills. He’s going nowhere but thinks he’s a hotshot. Sen. Martha McSally has nothing to worry about from this guy!

    • Seen It All says:

      I agree. The problem is Mark Kelly is bringing in tons of money not only from socialist George Soros and the anti-Second Amendment crowd, but also from the leftist McCain contingent that has flopped over to support Dem Kelly.

      Under normal circumstances, the term “strange bedfellows” would apply, but John McCain made his bed with liberal extremists throughout his shameful career. Being dead doesn’t make him better.

  3. Trevor says:

    Some radio host in Tucson is pushing McCarthy real hard. The host hates McSally with a passion, and yet POTUS, and our congressional delegation are behind McSally including the house freedom caucus chair.

    • Braveheart says:

      Voters matter more than a leftwing Tucson radio host with an agenda.

      Still this will not be a cakewalk for McSally because money counts and she doesn’t have a Socialist billionaire funding her as Mark Kelly does.

      Daniel McCarthy is a gnat on an elephant’s butt. He’s also a spoiler who has the potential to give Arizona TWO Democrat senators. He deserves to be shunned. He obviously doesn’t support President Trump, who has made it clear he supports Sen. McSally. Why would any Trump supporting conservative vote for this egomaniacal jerk?

      • Trevor says:

        The radio host is not a leftwing host he is a hardcore Trump supporter but he hates McSally with a passion.

  4. Braveheart says:

    If he’s a “hardcore Trump supporter,” why is he acting in defiance of Trump…who supports McSally? Makes no sense. Would he rather see Mark Kelly in the US Senate? I think these people are nuts…including the Demand Daniel fools.

    • PC & Committeeman says:

      Uh, maybe you should look at McSally’s votes PRIOR to her finally waking up and realizing she NEEDS President Trump — and, just like that, she was a Trump supporter.

      And, if it is such a slam dunk and Daniel is noting more than a gnat on an elephant’s backside, why aren’t you campaigning against KELLY, not Daniel???? Hummmm (As Rush would say)

      We NEED a real REPUBLICAN in this senate seat, Ducey sure screwed up by appointing her to begin with!! Do we now have another McCain in place???

      • MAGA Hat Man says:

        I support President Trump. He has repeatedly indicated he supports Sen. McSally. He gave her his unqualified endorsement when he had her on stage with him at his most recent Phoenix rally (prior to the pandemic related quarantine.). My wife and I were among the cheering crowd.

        Where was Daniel McCarthy that day? You strike me as a Biden supporting troll trying to sway votes to Soros supported Mark Kelly. Voting for Martha McSally is a no brainer for actual conservatives, who realize that Arizona is a crucial state in the upcoming election. The democrats are preparing to impeach Pres. Trump again. We already have a slim senate majority. You want to make it even slimmer. Which party are you a “PC and Committeeman” in?

        Why is your guy unable to raise any money?
        He currently has $11,000+. That’s chicken feed.

    This DEPLORABLE thinks McCarthy must be hitting the nail on the head with his campaign to upset the establishment like he is. McSally lost us 2 seats last election and will lose another seat seat for us this election. She learned a lot from her mentor McCain about how to show up just before an election and promise to “SECURE THOSE DANG BORDERS” and 2 weeks later it’s amnesty. She’s a fraud that is afraid to debate the same way she did in her congressional races. If the GOPe wasn’t still bought & paid for by McCain we’d have Kelly Ward as senator She’s actually someone who supported PDJT – not just during elections. McSally is a loser and PDJT is told to support her because she is the “incumbent”, She was appointed by McCain and will lose AZ a total of 3 seats before she moves out and finds a lobbying job.

    • Longtime GOP PC says:

      Has someone been drugging you?

      Sen. McSally would be foolish to debate this loser. She’s the incumbent. He’s a jerk. Watch as he reveals his brilliance:

      And BTW, in case you haven’t been paying attention, McCain is dead. McSally is not McCain. He crashed THREE jets. She not only flew combat missions in war zones, she LED them. Safely.
      I proudly voted to censure McCain!

      • Casper says:

        This guy is seriously grotesque.

      • D.B. Cooper says:

        Wow!! At first I thought this was a comedy skit. What a doofus!
        It’s amazing to see someone so lacking in gray matter thinking he is US Senate material.

    • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

      jojo:
      McCain appointed McSally? Seems you’ve been making too many models from craft kits in an unventilated room during the quarantine and inhaling the glue fumes.
      Also there are restrictions on lobbying after leaving the House or Senate. Either you are grossly ill-informed, or a blatant liar.

  6. GreenValleyGal says:

    We were impressed with McCarthy’s success as the first candidate to qualify for the AZ ballot. His petition signatures show support from voters. This US Senate seat from AZ has two years remaining. Voters will return to the polls in 2022 to vote again. An appointed McSally is not an incumbent. It seems the GOP establishment pushes McSally’s name any chance they have. Why the urgent need to propel a candidate?

    • Anthem Al says:

      Are you also “impressed” with his interview?
      Honestly, your McSally hatred aside, don’t you think he’s more than a bit weird and definitely not prepared for the US Senate? Please watch the entire interview before you respond.

  7. Claire Voyant says:

    In politics, money equates to “support.” Judging from his lack of donations, I’d say Demand Daniel’s “support” is non-existent.

    I’m “demanding” that this fool gets out of the race and stop working to give us a catastrophic loss. He seems to have been put up to run as a spoiler by the opposition.

  8. GreenValleyGal says:

    Good luck with getting him to withdraw.Trump showed us politics will never be the same again. Not a McSally hater, a former constituent.

  9. jake sez says:

    Sorry, I have been away for the weekend. I come back to hear all of you McSally supporters blaming everyone but her for the loss of the senate seat as if the election had already occurred. I guess you need to get your excuses ready. Good luck on that one.

    McCarty has been gaining support everywhere in the state from voters who are tired of electing turncoats and RINOs. If you do win the lection then you will get what you deserve. McCarty is a self made businessman who has earned everything he has. I guess if you are use to candidates like McSally receiving all her money from republican PACS, this would be foreign to you. Imagine someone who is taking responsibility for his own actions. What is this world coming too?

    • State Committeeman says:

      Jake,
      Hope you were out of town on a successful business trip, so you can give cash poor “Demand Daniel” a boost to his $11,000 cash on hand campaign account. If he’s doing so well (both with supporters and making money from his China-run business) why is his campaign broke?

    • Maggie says:

      Why does Danny McCarthy say every question he doesn’t want to answer is “irrelevant”?
      He’s still manufacturing his makeup eraser in China. Americans need jobs. Is that also “irrelevant” to this jerk who watches himself on the overhead monitors like an kindergartner when he’s being interviewed? He also complains that the photo of him isn’t good enough. He’s not Brad Pitt.

  10. jake sez says:

    Glad you guys stayed around. I would have felt like I was being talking to thin air.

    We will see who wins the primary then we can go after Mark Kelly.
