Tomorrow, conservative border security activist, Chris Simcox, will announce his bid for the US Senate seat currently held by John McCain. Simcox will make his announcement on the State Capitol lawn at 11:30 and will likely be surrounded by supporters and those angry with Senator John McCain.
This undoubtedly will set the stage for what will be a fight for the soul of the Republican party here in Arizona.
Over the years, many believe John McCain has abandoned the party’s conservative principles on the issues of free speech, sanctity of life, national security and immigration enforcement. Simcox’s conservative grassroots background and position on such issues is certain to pose a credible if not uncomfortable challenge to McCain.
Simcox is also expected to garnish widespread support not just here in Arizona but amongst other supporters across the Southwest. He is expected to call upon these supporters to help raise money especially during a time when drug cartels are expanding their terror campaigns across the border.
While McCain supporters will attempt to brush off Simcox’s challenge as less than credible, those close to McCain’s inner circle will eventually have to admit that they have a real problem.
