For Immediate Release: Monday, February 8, 2010
PHOENIX, ARIZONA. FEBRUARY 8, 2010. Conservative J.D. Hayworth will formally launch his Republican primary challenge to 24-year incumbent John McCain from his new campaign headquarters in north Phoenix at 10am on February 15th.
The headquarters is located at 3129 E. Cactus Rd. Suite 31, Phoenix, Arizona 85028.
A new website — www.jdforsenate.com — has debuted in support of the announcement. More information about Hayworth and his challenge to the moderate McCain will be added to the site throughout the week.
Additional details about the three-day announcement tour will be released in the next several days.
Since leaving his radio talk show to pursue this conservative challenge, Hayworth has already garnered endorsements, donations and grassroots enthusiasm across the state and country.
Vulnerable to the more conservative Hayworth on taxes, social issues and illegal immigration, McCain has resorted to attacking Hayworth on spending, despite Hayworth having a better lifetime rating from Citizens Against Government Waste.
McCain also voted for the $850 billion bailout of the big banks which included $150 billion in pork, proposed a $300 billion bailout for mortgage lenders and, according to the Heritage Foundation, sponsored an amnest bill in 2007 that would have cost taxpayers $2.6 trillion over the long-term.
