McSally is a horrible candidate. It almost seems like McCain was sabotaging the GOP in Arizona by pushing her along. The fiasco in AL and now in AZ reveals the GOP is incompetent, or again, intentionally sabotaging itself.

The entire RNC needs to move aside and be replaced with warriors, not the pansyfest we have now.

Yes I have no idea why they run her twice but voting for that crazy Sinema turned out bad for Arizona. Despite portraying herself as moderate she turned out to be a puppet for the party just like every other Democrat politician

I wanted McSally primaried, but it is riskier than having a pseudo incumbent running. If illegals were not voting in AZ it would be red by a mile.

This. She lost to that fruit cake Sinema. McSalad, only got her seat by appointment. That should have been a sign. I thought it was weird because that meant people were voting a split ticket keeping a R governor at the time. McSalad reeked of McCain RINO bullshit.

Now, if she lost to Sinema, she will most definitely lose to Mark Kelly, who was an astronaut (different kind of space case than Sinema). Also, people are/were sympathetic to his wife Gabby Giffords, so he also has that momentum.

I know I am fracturing into tangents here, but long story short, California leaked into Arizona for a while now, and the state is pretty much purple, leaning more blue as time goes on. Unless people pull their heads out of their asses, the ship is sinking in AZ.

AZ turning purple is all the more reason the GOP needs to find exceptional candidates.

Did conservatives on the ground in Arizona see this years ago and start planning by primarying the right people? Or did they sit back and let Mittens' niece offer scraps and say live with it or lose to a Dem?

McCain hated the Tea Party. Maybe he and the RINOs in AZ did start shutting such candidates out ten/fifteen years ago, and so, now, they've got nothing but McCain's RINO stooges to draw from. But, I don't live in AZ. Don't know enough about AZ politics to say.

Getting anyone excited about voting for her.

She really needs to get into a new A10 and do a brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrt flyby at a test site and film it. Great commercial.

California has a shit load of conservatives. However I live in a transplant state and we get Cali, Washington, Mass, CT, NY and MI. The Cali, CT, MI folks go back to blue every time. They get sucked into fake news and social media.

It has nothing to do with Mexicans. Many of the Californians of Mexican heritage are Trump supporters.

It's the mostly-white pseudo-intellectuals who are convinced they are fighting for the little guy by supporting nothing but Democrats. They read the news on the internet, they turn on the TV news, and everyone everywhere tells them that Democrats are good and Republicans are evil, especially when it comes to immigration policy.

Most of them truly believe they are saving the world and they get full-blown Manson Family psycho-eyes if you even so much as question if the Democratic party has really been good for the people they claim to be helping.

The few who are somewhat on the conservative side consider immigration policy reform to be a political lightning rod not to be touched. Why? They'll tell you the story of how Pete Wilson ran against immigration and even though he won big, it gave the Democrats fodder to replay those "racist" Wilson campaign ads forever. They'll tell you how the demographics have changed (not untrue, but missing the point) and that's why Gray Davis won and why no Republican can ever win again, even though John Cox got damn close and almost beat out golden boy Gavin. They actually believe Republicans have "lost forever" in the state and there's nothing they can do about it.

As an immigrant to California from other parts of the U.S., this to me is a very California mindset. The people here seem to be programmed to give up easily at even the slightest whiff of a fight. It's nuts. Good for me because I get paid really well just for having a really pretty normal set of balls.

It doesn't occur to the CA GOP that they could fight the Democrat portrayals. It doesn't occur to them that all that is needed is to change the conversation to one of pro-immigrant but anti-illegal-immigrant. They just can't see the two coexisting in their feeble brains. Trump is doing exactly this and they still can't see it.

The few who can are still afraid of fighting because they can't rely on anyone else because so few other people will admit to understanding it. That's why so many California Republicans were never-Trumpers in the 2016 election. They thought it was political suicide to hitch the CA GOP to Trump. They actually think if they are just slightly more right-leaning than Democrats this is the path to success in California. I think a lot of them straight up ticked the box for Hillary because they're really that brainwashed. They just want to go along and get along.

The results of this approach speak for themselves. The GOP is increasingly marginalized, but no worries they can just scapegoat all their problems on Pete Wilson's campaign from 30 years ago instead of admitting that it's their fault for letting the Democrats drive the conversation and has been the entire time.

The CA GOP now, here in 2020, just might finally be waking up to the fact that they've been dead wrong for 30 years and Trump had the proper approach the entire time. Now the real problem is getting the pond scum out of the GOP because they'd rather self-immolate the party than admit they fucked up royally by giving in to the Democrat talking points on immigration for 30 years now.

Honestly, I think a lot of them aren't even interested in ever having to govern, they just want to be the opposition party to the Democrats and once in a while try to get some political scraps.

That's the real problem with the GOP, and not just in California. Trump has showed them up big time. They don't like it so they'd rather sabotage Trump than help him win.

LA, yes. SF, no. SF has relatively few Mexicans and, outside of the slum district (Tenderloin), is a hive of wealthy white liberals with some first-generation Asians and a small and diminishing Black community on the east-side to keep them company. If anything, SF is proof of white liberal hypocrisy. They've allowed high cost of living to push the "diversity" to the East Bay and to the cities to the north like Richmond.

Same thing is happening in North Carolina with northeastern liberals relocating because cost of living is cheaper and better quality of life. Only for the newly relocated citizens to vote for the same policies and people that made them leave their old home.

BeauBidenBrainTumor 2 points ago +2 / -0

This is the case in many fine red-state areas. The liberals move like locusts - they swarm into new areas, despoil them, and repeat the process in greener pastures. I think someone should need to live in a state for 3 to 5 years prior to being able to vote there for this reason, outside of military personnel. You should have some time to understand and adopt some of the communities' values before trying to disrupt their way of life.

I'm of two minds about it. I won't deny that there are a lot of Republicans in California. But it's also undeniable that it doesn't matter. They lost their state a long time ago, and now they're just Northern Mexico.

Something's not adding up, if Trump is projected to win Arizona how can McSally lose? Why would any AZ republican voting for Trump not vote in the Republican candidate for Senate.

She's not the best in the GOP by any stretch, but under no circumstances can the Senate be handed to the Democrats.

AZTrumpette1776 5 points ago +5 / -0

I think that like me they will vote in a roadrunner as long as there is an R next to his name.

I would have preferred McCarthy but that is no longer an option.

LtColVindmansVagina 2 points ago +2 / -0

Mark Kelly has star power to his name and of course he's connected to one of the bigger Arizona tragedies recently. He has been running his whole campaign as though he's a moderate. It's a real problem.

Oh, ok makes more sense. Run as a "centrist democrat" and use his wife Gabby Giffords for sympathy, and when elected vote for partial birth abortion and stricter gun control laws.

It's more based on out expectation of Trump to win reelection and he won Arizona in 2016. It's not impossible for Trump to win again while losing a couple states from last time, but it's a really bad sign if Trump loses Arizona to freaking Biden.

Thehumancentipede 2 points ago +2 / -0

Got it. He's likely behind right now, but last week was a good week. more of those and we will hopefully be favored again

Bad candidate, but we don't have many good ones. People need to step up. Tom Cotton joined the miliyary because he thought he was helping tge country and then went into Congress because he still wanted to help the country.

Kyle should have never freaking appointed her after she lost. Appoint someone that has potential to win - she had her chance and struck out, although there were definitely some shenanigans with the vote count.

Pretty sure the Dems will take back the Senate if the GOP keeps pushing these milquetoast candidates.

Wouldn't surprise me if she did lose, she is absolutely tepid. More firebrands, less wet blankets.
