J.D. HAYWORTH CALLS ON JOHN MCCAIN TO OPPOSE POSSIBLE HILLARY APPOINTMENT TO SUPREME COURT
Phoenix, AZ (April 13) - Following yesterday's shocking admission by former McCain advisor Mark McKinnon that John McCain would vote to confirm Hillary Clinton to the U.S. Supreme Court, J.D. Hayworth said "it's time to bring John home."
"Any senator willing to even consider giving Hillary Clinton a life-time position to this land's highest court is clearly out of touch with Arizona and the rest of the nation for that matter," he said.
Hayworth said her record is so far left that she should not even be on a short-list for consideration.
"From Whitewater, to HillaryCare Round One to ObamaCare Round Two to the latest foreign policy disasters such as our nation's newest non-nuclear protection position and our ever-weakening status in the eyes of the world, she has been an embarrassment," he said.
During an appearance on CNN last night, McKinnon told Campbell Brown "the guy who would have a really tough position would be John McCain who's down there in a tough re-election battle, but he really likes Hillary and I know he'd want to vote for her."
Hayworth observed that "Given John McCain's track record as part of the infamous Gang of 14, his votes to confirm committed liberal activists like Eric Holder as Attorney General, and his insatiable need for affirmation from media outlets like the New York Times, we need to hold his feet to the fire.
"We are lucky that this vote is happening during an election year," Hayworth said. 'Those are the brief periods when John wakes up and listens to his constituents. But we still need to keep the pressure on him to do what is right, because while his campaign advisers are going to be telling him to vote like a conservative for a few more months, the honest appraisal from his former campaign confidant reveals a great deal about how John McCain would vote if he thought nobody was watching."
