Maricopa GOP leadership poised to censure John McCain

I have just received this censure resolution that is about to be brought in front of the Maricopa County GOP leadership for a vote. Am told it has a very good chance at passing.


Senator John McCain Censured by Arizona’s Republican Leadership

As leaders in the Republican Party, we are obligated to fully support our Party, platform, and its candidates. Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders. Today we are faced with both. For too long we have waited, hoping Senator McCain would return to our Party’s values on his own. That has not happened. So with sadness and humility we rise and declare:

Whereas Senator McCain has amassed a long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats, such as Amnesty, funding for ObamaCare, the debt ceiling, assaults on the Constitution and 2nd amendment, and has continued to support liberal nominees;

Whereas this record has been disastrous and harmful to Arizona and the United States; and,

Whereas Senator McCain has campaigned as a conservative and made promises during his re-election campaigns, such as the needed and welcomed promise to secure our borders and finish the border fence, only to quickly flip-flop on those promises; and

Whereas McCain has abandoned our core values and has been eerily silent against Liberals, yet publicly reprimands Conservatives in his own Party, therefore

BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Maricopa County Republican leadership censures Senator McCain for his continued disservice to our State and Nation, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that until he consistently champions our Party’s Platform and values, we, the Republican leadership in Arizona will no longer support, campaign for or endorse John McCain as our U.S. Senator.

He was rebuked in September 2013 by Dist 26 Republicans now this, yet he is making noises about running again. We need to get a serious CONSERVATIVE candidate for his Senate seat.

I to have given up on Senator McCain. And pretty much for the reasons given. I have voted for this man each and everytime he has run for office. But no more, i don't even know who he is any more.

About time the AZ GOP has wake up . . . John McCain needs to go . . . Now what about Jeff Flake he to is the same as John McCain . . . to different. Also the AZ GOP needs to go back to the core principles of the true Constitutional Conservative . . . the GOP that is in DC today is not that core . . . the total GOP needs to support the Tea Party principles before I will them . . .

Indiana thanks you for taking the first steps in holding him accountable. He sold out a long time ago.

About time! Repub leadership just now figuring out what we all have known for a long time. Better late than never, I suppose. McCain is a (D) pretending to be a (R), and has been for a LONG time.

Time to boot the traitor out of office He can not be trusted and that is all there is to it. We need to get rid of John Boehner as well he is also a looser along with Twenty three other Republicans that have voted to support Obama and the liberal trash.
