Arizona Sen. John McCain, the Republicans’ standard-bearer in 2008, is facing a surprisingly strong primary challenge from the right, evidence that even party leaders aren’t safe from the swell of conservative activism heading into the 2010 midterm elections.
McCain has worked to get his presumptive primary opponent, JD Hayworth, off the air as he protested his radio show. He’s getting Scott Brown and Sarah Palin to stump for him (which costs them both points with me) and he’s trying his best to voice what I will call a “conservative mating call”.
Let’s hope Arizona voters recognize a phony conservative when they hear one.
