With the arrival of their official primary election ballots, Republican voters have observed a never-before-seen irregularity, in the form of a candidate incorporating his campaign slogan into his name on the ballot.
How this blunder passed what should be the Secretary of State’s watchful eye is anyone’s guess, but will likely be blamed on the fact that the COVID-19 virus is “temporarily suspending all in-person services“ at the Election‘s Division, including federal filers.
Incumbent Sen. Martha McSally’s U.S. Senate not-ready-for-prime-time challenger (video evidence) Daniel McCarthy has filed his official documents with the Federal Election Commission using the name of his campaign committee, which is his prerogative.
His campaign signs have the words Demand Daniel prominently displayed above his inconspicuous last name McCarthy, also his choice.
But the official ballot is an entirely different matter, The candidate is listed, MCCARTHY, DANIEL “DEMAND DANIEL.” This is not a nickname, as Dan or Danny would be. It is his campaign slogan, which has no place on the ballot.
Imagine the uproar if Pres. Trump tried to put the letters MAGA next to his name. Though it would be disallowed, even such an attempt would have rated constant negative coverage on the Trump-hating networks.
It’s not difficult to imagine why the far left local newspaper has been silent on this. It supports radical leftist Mark Kelly, who has deep business ties to China and heads two gun control PACs. We’ve exposed both in this recent post: “Sen. Martha McSally’s slippery rivals aid her campaign.”
Before marking your ballot, we also urge you to read, “Facts expose Daniel McCarthy’s distortions of Sen. Martha McSally.”
