TUCSON -- John McCain is on a roll in his quest for the GOP Presidential candidate nomination after winning in South Carolina yesterday. He could've won Nevada too, had he made more of an effort there.
I'm hoping McCain won't get the GOP pick -- although he'd be a weaker opponent for Dems than Mike Huckabee -- because Arizona probably wouldn't be considered a swing state and candidates would overlook us and our issues.
Although he's virtually stopped representing us and voting in the Senate, McCain is a DC insider for sure. He is hardly in Arizona. To call him dial 202, not 602.
I respect John McCain, but even as an Arizonan, I wouldn't vote for him over any of the top Dem candidates.
McCain has been in DC too long. He votes with ultra-conservative Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and the wishes of Bush/Cheney almost every time.
