The People's Choice?
McCain Is Not Popular in Arizona
|American Patrol Report Comment -- August 26
John McCain captured the Republican nomination for Senate in Arizona with 56.2% of the vote. He got 120,508 more votes than his closest rival, J.D. Hayworth. He spent $20 million to demonize his opponent or $166 per swing vote.
There are 1,119,389 registered Republicans in Arizona. Seventy five percent of them did not go to the polls to vote for John McCain on primary election day.
McCain outspent Hayworth by 10 to 1. He is the senior senator from Arizona. The media love him, yet it took a Normandy-type assault to defeat what many called a weak candidate.
Gov. Jan Brewer garnered 82% of the vote and yet she spent hardly anything.
John McCain is not popular in Arizona. It took a massive $20 million salvo aimed at Hayworth and a complete retreat from his amnesty and open-borders positions to save him. He had better stay there if he wants to avoid a "McCain Mutiny" in the fall election.

America in retreat
America is losing ground, literally and figuratively. For decades, I've taught young people how the United States was born - and how it expanded to the configuration on the maps I use to teach - the lower forty-eight with Alaska and Hawaii scrunched in alongside. The maps don't indicate how tenuous our hold on the territory within that familiar shape is becoming, but it's getting weaker... [See "Hope & Change" Watch]
