Chris Simcox, founder of the US./Mexican border-monitoring group, The Minute Men, has announced that he will challenge RINO John McCain in the 2010 Arizona primary.
This is from his forthcoming announcement:
“John McCain has failed miserably in his duty to secure this nation’s borders and protect the people of Arizona from the escalating violence and lawlessness,” Simcox said. “He has fought real efforts over the years at every turn, opting to hold our nation’s border security hostage to his amnesty schemes. Coupled with his votes for reckless bailout spending and big government solutions to our nation’s problems, John McCain is out of touch with everyday Arizonans. Enough is enough.”
Lest you think he’s a one issue candidate, here’s a link to his website that covers all of his campaign issues from American security to the economic crises:
He is a multifaceted guy. He’s a school teacher, businessman, athlete, and newspaper owner.
Simcox strikes a chord with conservatives digusted over McCain’s pandering to illegal alien advocates, including La Raza and Juan (“open borders”) Hernandez. He’s weak on border security, and once accused conservatives of being “divisive” and “insulting” to Latinos for suggesting that immigrants ought to learn English, become legal citizens, and assimilate into American culture.
If I were an Arizona resident, I’d damned sure cast a vote for Chris. If Arizonians are as pissed as the rest of us over the direction this country is taking, with the faltering economy and national security, Simcox should win in a landslide.
