Hayworth Planning A Senate Run Against McCain In AZ
Source: TPM

Former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) is planning to run against Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for his Senate seat.

Hayworth told the Associated Press that he stepped down as host of a conservative talk radio show in Arizona, clearing the way for a Senate run.

While Hayworth didn't formally announce a run, he told the AP that "we're moving forward to challenge John McCain."

A Rasmussen poll last week showed McCain with a healthy lead against Hayworth in Arizona's GOP primary: 53-31.

Hayworth is my former Congressman and he was awful. I'd rather have McCain than Hayworth but if it means a Democrat has a better chance of getting the seat with Hayworth running against than I'm for him in the primary. If it means republicans will win the seat no matter what than I rather be stuck with McCain. Regardless I think McCain beats him easily.

1. I love what David Leibowitz had to say about this
1) I'm trying to understand this. I'm JD Hayworth. Harry Mitchell beats me in a GOP-dominated district. I've spent 3 years doing a middling-rated talk show in Phoenix. Now I'm going to beat John McCain statewide? Dream the ^%$*& on.

2) Great news: JD Hayworth quits KFYI to challenge John McCain. One less shitty talk show host. And McCain will whip his ass by about 20 points.

3. I concede that Republicans have won past elections in this district
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 11:17 AM by JonLP24
but these days I consider it a swing district. Mitchell widened his lead last his election from his first and McCain won it narrowly against Obama with 51% of the vote. However I do see what you're saying.

2. Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, huh?
Is Hayworth a teabagger? Or is that a naive question? I wonder how many primary Rethug challenges are going to be announced in primaries by teaMcBaggins trying to oust what they perceive as moderate Retardicans. As the Beach Boys said, wouldn't it be nice.

4. Best way I think I can put it is that
Hayworth is further to the right than George W. Bush. McCain at least votes for more often with Democrats than even a lot of republicans.
