McCain camp has egg on its face - Tea Party movement finds McCain its least liked Republican

The McCain camp has been crowing that Tea Parties in Arizona haven't endorsed JD Hayworth. But they fail to mention that it is because most Tea Parties are 501c4s, prohibited from endorsing political candidates. Tea Parties like Tax Day Tea Party that are 501c3s or other have enthusiastically endorsed Hayworth. I am still waiting for a single Tea Party to endorse McCain.

Some excerpts from the Politico article -

In a survey of more than three dozen grass-roots tea party leaders from 29 states, the party’s 2008 presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain, was the Republican most cited as a disappointment. Asked which three national Republicans they were most unhappy with, McCain was named by 18 respondents.

Other congressional Republicans considered disappointments included moderate-leaning Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, as well as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California.
