JD Hayworth Resigns from Radio, Will Run Against John McCain
Last night radio talk show host J.D. Hayworth annouced that he was resigning and on Saturday morning he announced that it was because he wants to run against John McCain. He formally announced the race this morning. .
It was last November that that Rasmussen released a poll that showed J.D Hayworth within the margin of error in a speculative race against John McCain. Hayworth would often criticize McCain on his talk show and would talk about running against McCain.
John McCain has not faced a challenger in the last two decades, but he taking this news seriously and already started his campaign by running ads against Hayworth.
JD Hayworth. That's not what Arizona wants. He sounds conservative on the radio, but JD was one of the biggest spenders in Congress. In 2005 they passed a bill with 6,500 pork barrel earmarks worth more than $24 billion. JD voted for every one. He would be the wrong direction for Arizona. McCain is the right direction. Character matters.
Sarah Palin has announced that she will be traveling to Arizona to campaign for McCain.
John McCain has been more vocal in the press and has been discussing things like healthcare, however a recent poll by the Maricopa County Republican Party earned McCain only 10.5 percent of the vote, while Hayworth had 68 percent.
