As Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) continues to support amnesty for America’s illegal immigrants and President Barack Obama’s proposed plan to militarily strike Syria, Republicans in the state are condemning his actions as inconsistent with GOP principles.The Maricopa County GOP’s latest electronic news briefs, published on Saturday, Sept. 7, is chock full of anti-McCain stories and full of examples of how McCain has abandoned GOP principles. “There Is Lots Of Chatter Regarding The Short Notice The Public Had On Sen John McCain’s sudden, overnight called Town Halls in Phoenix, Tucson and Prescott this past week,” the Maricopa County GOP wrote on its website. “Briefs has confirmed reports that that McCain’s office didn’t bother to notify AZGOP Robert Graham, nor Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman AJ LaFaro. Now if that isn’t a slap in the face of two top Arizona GOP elected officials.”
Filling the clips section of the Maricopa County GOP newsletter are a batch of negative news stories about McCain’s activities pushing military intervention in Syria’s civil war. Headlines range from how much money McCain makes off defense contractors to someone at one his town hall meetings calling for him to be "arrested and tried for treason." It is one thing for some constituents to feel that way, but for an official body of the GOP—the Maricopa County GOP—to seemingly endorse the comments indicates McCain is drifting further and further away from mainstream political views.
