Gun Owners of America Endorse Conservative Senate Candidate J.D. Hayworth

PHOENIX, ARIZONA.  FEBRUARY 23, 2010. Second Amendment patriots, Gun Owners of America, have announced their endorsement of Conservative candidate J.D. Hayworth in his run against 24-year incumbent Senator John McCain.

The statement by Gun Owners of America can be found here.

The Second Amendment is yet another area where Hayworth has a more conservative record than the long-time incumbent.
McCain is vulnerable to the more conservative Hayworth on taxes, pro-life and pro-family issues as well as illegal immigration.  Hayworth also has a better lifetime rating from Citizens Against Government Waste.

McCain 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 amnesty bill that would have cost taxpayers $2.6 trillion over the long-term.

    I am a card carrying member of the NRA, belong to various sporting clubs and keep up with gun issues. I have not heard of the GOA. Who are these guys ? Might as well be the Harper Valley PTA.

  2. I’m not a member of the NRA, and I don’t belong to any gun clubs yet I’ve heard of them!

  3. Where I came from they, the G.O.A.were an auxiliary to the Homing Pigeon Club. They shot at clay pigeons.
    Andy will have all their voters in his corner. All three of them.

    First of all, why is JD merely bashing McCain? (not that I’m a McCain fan). I think if JD is conservative, let’s hear more about his conservative record.

    Nothing wrong with GOA, but announcing their endorsement sends an I-take-what-I-can-get message.

    I would have liked to hear how JD would expand 2nd Amendment freedoms as a Congressman.

  5. “Nothing wrong with GOA, but announcing their endorsement sends an I-take-what-I-can-get message.”

    AHH-GREEED. But then again when McCain has 2.3 million endorsements, give or take a few, and JD has, oh, five, he sort of has to take what he can get. I hope you like the taste of defeat, Mr. Hayworth, because given your lack of funds, endorsements, supporters and BRAINS, it’s about all you’ll have to your name soon.

    wow, who’s next? santa? the easter bunny? i mean, why doesn’t hayworth just whip out all the unimportant/”wtf, why would you promote this?”/pretty much fictional characters (see: joe the plumber) endorsements that he can? this race is becoming such a joke, and the man behind the curtain is definitely hayworth – mccain’s actually taking this seriously.

  7. JD Hayworth is not Congress material, I know I do not need to bring up the past, so why on earth do some of you think he is??? He has earned soo many titles over the years and not one of them is positive. I think we all know that. His little endorsements here and there do not even compare to the amount of respectable individuals endorsing McCain. I do enjoy your posts, enjoy the knowledge, or lack there-of, and will continue to support John McCain over JD.

    Politcal endorsements are usually nothing but a selfserving opinion that puts me in mind of two dogs sniffing each other’s butts. I don’t care if it is Palin for McRINO or GOA for JD. They are about as worthless as a bucket of warm spit and meaninless to an informed and involved voter.

  9. Funny, but if a candidate cannot get much more then Sherif Joe (who is under invest.) to endorse him…then that candidate, no matter who they are should be questioned…You would not hire someone in any job without prior work references, why would we elect someone in office who cannot get endorsements???

  10. Stephen Kohut says

    The mutual admiration, you scratch mine and I’ll scratch world of one politician endorsing another sure is a meaningful indicator of a candidate’s qualification for office. That and a couple of bucks gets you on the bus.

    The only person who’s opinion means anything is the voter casting the ballot and if they are so foolish as to base their vote on one political hack recommending another politcal hack then they’ll get exactly what they deserve, the mess we have today.

    I was born and raised in Az and have lived in the CD that fired Hayworth for over 20 years. JD’s “conservative” claim doesn’t square w/ anything that he did while in congress for 12 years.

    He fancied himself as a deal maker and did patronage deals in the form of pork barrel legislation like it was cool.

    Problem is that it cost Republicans control of both houses and the WH. I’d say he was one of the worst, evidenced by his loss to a Democrat in a Republican dominated Cong dist. This all prior to Obama mania.

    We should not confuse anger and frustration due to the staus quo in DC w/ a candidate who has no record of being who/what he claims to be. Pursuing this fantasy will lead to disaster.

    Now WRT to gun clubs; Arizona Veteran’s solidly back Senator John McCain. I would hope that serving this great natin in it’s military and perhaps dodging a few bullets (real ones) might would qualify us as a Gun Club.

    Many of us, including John McCain, believe strongly in the 2nd Amendment and own guns.
