JD Hayworth announces he's collected enough signatures to qualify for Senate ballot

With his beautiful wife Miss Mary standing next to him and a large group of supporters behind him, JD Hayworth announced today at at press conference at the Arizona State Capitol that he had collected over 11,000 signatures, easily enough to qualify for the ballot. Now that he is "official," he repeated his request to McCain to debate. According to the debate clock on JD's website, it has now been 60 days since he asked McCain to debate. McCain hasn't responded, other than to say he was waiting until JD collected enough signatures to be certified. That sounds fishy to JD, who noted that McCain started running negative ads against him back when he was still a broadcaster in January, he sure acted like he was a legitimate candidate back then.

A reporter asked JD about dealing with controversial issues like SB1070. JD responded and said that a bill he co-sponsored back when he was in Congress would have done the same thing, but where was McCain then? Introducing an amnesty bill instead. JD said that Arizona should never feel the need to apologize for enforcing the law.

Another reporter asked about new County Attorney Rick Romley's recent statement that SB1070 is tearing apart the state. JD said that isn't accurate, since over 70% of Arizonans support the bill. It would be more accurate to describe it as a "vigorous debate."

It isn't any law that is tearing apart our state... it is the endless invasion of our state and country by people who choose to ignore our immigration laws and then DEMAND that our laws be ignored for them! Only a true racist would think that the color of their skin makes them above our laws. That is exactly what the open borders crowd is promoting and why we have to put a stop to it. I'm Hispanic and have never feared our law enforcement and SB1070 doesn't change that for me... because I'm not breaking any laws.

Well said American Pride. It is enforcement of a law that has the strength to protect our state and Nation from the drug cartel and illegal immigrants who do not take the proper steps to go through immigration. As for McCain, he has been fighting for troops for over a year, fighting for immigration reform and the entire time, Obama ignoring him. We have drawn enough attention to our borders now that perhaps he will help sent troops to us. And from what I have read about McCain and amnesty this is his stance- John McCain does not support amnesty and believes that we should not reward lawbreakers. Any measure designed to fix the broken immigration system must deal with the undocumented population, and as we all know, this is very difficult challenge that attracts a wide range of diverse views and opinions. We need a practical solution for dealing with undocumented immigrants currently living and working in our country and that solution must be carried out in a manner that fosters the social, economic, and security interest of the United States.
