McCain facing 2010 primary
Social conservatives tolerated John McCain as the party's nominee, but never trusted him, and he now appears to be facing a serious primary from the right in Arizona next year.
Chris Simcox, the founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and a prominent figure in the anti-immigration movement, will announcing tomorrow at an event on the Mexican border that he's resigned from the group to run in the 2010 Senate primary.
From a forthcoming release:"John McCain has failed miserably in his duty to secure this nation's borders and protect the people of Arizona from the escalating violence and lawlessness," Simcox said. "He has fought real efforts over the years at every turn, opting to hold our nation's border security hostage to his amnesty schemes. Coupled with his votes for reckless bailout spending and big government solutions to our nation's problems, John McCain is out of touch with everyday Arizonans. Enough is enough."
McCain was forced to abandon his own immigration reform legislation during last year's Republican Primary, a move that may have cost him substantial Hispanic support to which his record could have given him access.
So he's basically getting it from both sides on this one.
Simcox, with a national base and a high profile on the right, is well positioned to give McCain a serious local headache. He'll find some allies among the conservatives who recently took over the Arizona Republican Party from McCain's allies, and he has a national fundraising base.

Chris Simcox challenges McCain for his Senate seat
Here's some good news. It would poetic justice to see McAmnesty defeated by the founder of the Minutemen. McCain is one of the worst Republicans ever. He is no conservative. He is a CFR designated loser. He is a complete jackass. One of the most unpleasant experiences of my life was voting for this POS. Yeah I know, "he served our country." But you know what? That does not make him a great person or even a good person. Anyone that studied his service record know that he was a spoiled snot nosed jet jock that couldn't keep his planes in the air or his you know what in his pants.....
Watch the left begin to gear up their racist rhetoric against Simcox. They have yet to discern the difference between anti-immigration and anti-illegal immigration. That is why I call them illegal aliens. I'm anti-illegal alien. I don't care what country your from. If your here illegally then you should be deported! A sovereign nation that controls its own borders and therefore it's own destiny is another concept lost on the confused left.
Good for you Chris. I hope you kick his ass - politically that is!
