2006 GOP Gubernatorial Nominee Len Munsil Endorses Hayworth

PHOENIX, Ariz. March 3, 2010. J.D. Hayworth has gained the endorsement of a man who over the years has probably done more to keep Arizona steering in the direction of family values than anyone in the state: Len Munsil. The founder of the Center for Arizona Policy – and 2006 Republican nominee for Governor – today endorsed the campaign of J.D. Hayworth to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate.

Hayworth is facing 24-year incumbent John McCain.

“I was honored to have Sen. McCain’s endorsement for Governor of Arizona in 2006, and was proud to support him for the presidency of the United States,” said Munsil.  “While I am thankful for Sen. McCain’s dedication to Arizona and the country, and his commitment to public service, the time has come for conservative change in Washington D.C.  I am therefore pleased to support J.D. Hayworth for the U.S. Senate in 2010. J.D. will be a reliable, consistent conservative vote and voice in Washington D.C,” said Munsil of his endorsement.

Munsil also added, “J.D. is on the right side of issues important to conservatives – opposing illegal immigration, ending bailouts, fighting against Cap & Trade and stopping unconstitutional restraints on political speech. He is consistent in his support for the sanctity of life and the institution of marriage. And J.D. will be an articulate spokesman for conservative principles.”

Munsil not only founded the Center for Arizona Policy – an organization that emphasizes pro-life and pro-family conservative issues and has promoted 60 laws protecting children and strengthening families – he is also a lawyer, an adjunct professor at Southwestern College and a former editor of the ASU State Press where he moved the editorial direction of the university’s newspaper in a conservative direction.

“Len is a man of faith that understands that one not only needs to speak to family values they need to act on them,” said Hayworth. “I am honored to have him behind me as we try to send a conservative senator to Washington that reflects the values of Arizona.”

Vulnerable to the more conservative Hayworth on taxes, pro-life issues and illegal immigration, McCain has resorted to attacking Hayworth on spending, despite Hayworth having a better lifetime rating from Citizens Against Government Waste.  Hayworth has a 98-percent rating from the American Conservative Union.

McCain also voted for the $850 billion bailout of the big banks which included $150 billion in earmarks, proposed a $300 billion bailout for mortgage lenders and, according to the Heritage Foundation, sponsored an amnesty bill that would have cost taxpayers $2.6 trillion over the long-term.



  1. Yeah but Len turned out to be a whopper of a looser in that 2006 election and if memory serves me right the exit polls showed it was among the Democrats and Independents also the Republican women who didn’t feel they needed a Governor who might support a measure they needed to watch a video of their own ovaries before they were granted permission to have a wisdom tooth extracted or a molar capped.
    That endorsement my ring both ways on memory lane.

  2. To Tell The Truth says

    Len is a nice guy with NO feel of what is really going on in the world. He is backing another looser. Not a good move Len! November will give you another lesson in politics.

  3. I’m happy that you are supporting J.D. Len. It is a good move. McCain needs to enjoy his retirement.

  4. Both 2006 and 2008 were losing years for Republicans. The pendulum has swung back right of center. If you would have been paying attention, you would have noticed Democrats and incumbents are losing.

    Thanks Len for standing firm on your convictions. You and I both know that John McCain has let both cultural and fiscal conservatives down and like Dr. James Dobson, we must stand for truth and righteousness.

  5. West Valley GOP says

    Love it when people call other people losers, but misspell the word loser. That cracks me up.

    Glad to see Len sticking by his conservative principles on this one. It takes guts to stand up to McCain and his grudge machine.

  6. McCain and the McCainiacs share one trait that binds them….they all lack principles!

  7. Have you ever noticed that when Whack-A-Doodles can’t respond in substance, they pick on Typos?

  8. West Valley GOP says

    Why debate issues with a man who claims that Len Munsil supports women having to see their ovaries before having their wisdom teeth out? I mean really, what would be the point? Your politics remain left of center Horst, so your strong support for McCain is not a surprise to anyone who knows you. It is a confirmation though of all that is wrong with the man. He is beloved by Democrats, left of center Independents, and Republicans like Horst Kraus. Its conservatives who have no use for the man.

  9. Thank You Len!

  10. Len who? Is that the best you can do Shane?

  11. Annie Hoyle says

    This Republican Woman loves Len Munsil! He isn’t a loser or a looser, whatever that is. JD is lucky to have his endorsement.

    “Whack-a-Doodles”, oh the irony, I can’t stop laughing. You made my night!
    Should “Typos” be capitalized?
