Sen McCain holds Townhall in Suprise during Maricopa County GOP Convention

According to the Arizona Tea Party’s events calendar, Senator John McCain will be appearing at a townhall on Saturday January 16th at 1pm at the Sun City Grand Community Center.

Curiously, the same day, the Maricopa County Republican Party will be holding it’s convention from 9 AM to 1 PM at Grace Community Church 1200 E. Southern, Tempe.

Perhaps Senator McCain will stop by the convention to greet the party faithful since, unfortunately, many of the convention-goers from the west valley, especially, will miss their opportunity to see him at the townhall. He has not made the last few.

  1. What I do Saturday depends on what side of the bed I wake up on. If I feel like going to a real brawl, I’ll go to the GOP meeting. If I wake up in a good frame of mind, I’ll go out to Hope Women’s Center (where I serve on the Board of Directors) and do some volunteer work. It will be an Ecclesiastes 3 day.

    My guess is that is was planned that way to avoid and hardball questions from the West Valley R’s who REALLY know the score……global warming, McCain-Finegold, amnesty and more…..and who will be attending the Mandatory Meeting…..

    GOOOH!!! (or Senate, in this case)

  3. Going Rogue:

    Mac is opting to stay away from the battlefield and let his proxies roll in the mud!

  4. If McCain can’t go to the meeting when he is running for President, he won’t be brave enough to show up this year. What poor politician.

  5. Buckeye Bill says

    McCain knows he would be booed out of the hall if he showed up in Tempe.

    His Conservative Country town hall is designed to keep conservatives away from voting for Party Officers.

    How pathetic can this lefty CFR member get?

  6. Rufus Hornswoggle says

    It’s simple why Senator McCain won’t attend the GOP meeting. One, the MRCR is totally dysfunctional. Two, he has better things to do than deal with Herr Haney and the rest of his brownshirts.

  7. Veritas Vincit says

    McCain is the 800# gorilla looking for an exit in a very dysfunctional big tent.

    After amnesty and Cap-n-Trade can you honestly call him a Republican? Oh yeah almost forgot… remember his little joke, Campaign Finance Reform?

    Isn’t it time to flush the John’s in Arizona?

    The Pinal GOP Mandatory Meeting is also on Sat. 1/16 from 9 ~ 12 and guess who will be there … McRINO! McCain is scheduled as a guest speaker at our meeting. If he thinks that is a safer venue than MCRC he is in for a shock. In the last year the Pinal PC roles have more than doubled with an inpouring of conservative critters from Tea Parties, 9-12 Groups, etc. just the MCRC’s has. In the last 2 weeks alone I’ve signed up 6 more PC’s. We plan to give McRINO the reception he deserves at our meeting and a boot in the tail in the primary. It’s RINO season and there is no bag limit! Time to go hunting!

    reprint from Rufus Hornswoggle “It’s simple why Senator McCain won’t attend the GOP meeting. One, the MRCR is totally dysfunctional. Two, he has better things to do than deal with Herr Haney and the rest of his brownshirts.”

    Despite the fact I suspect Mr. Hornswoggle’s name is made up, he makes a great point.
