John McCain Censured by Arizona Republicans in Landslide Vote

This official censuring of McCain happened during the annual mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee. Nearly 1,500 precinct committeemen (PCs) were in attendance. The vote to censure McCain passed overwhelmingly — 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed.

The censure concluded that “until he consistently champions our Party’s Platform and values, we, the Republican leadership in Arizona will no longer support, campaign for or endorse John McCain as our U.S. Senator.

...Arizona’s entire Republican Congressional delegation attended the meeting. U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar, (CD-4); Matt Salmon, (CD-5); David Schweikert, (CD-6) and Trent Franks (CD-8) were warmly received by the committeemen. The Representative gave rousing speeches that resonated with the PCs. - TOP RIGHT NEWS

AZ GOP Censures John McCain for “Long, Terrible Record of Drafting, Supporting, Voting for Legislation” Favoring Democrat Agenda- Maggie's Notebook

Sheriff Joe Arpaio attended the meeting where the entire Republican Congressional delegation showed up, and the crowd gave Arpaio loud cheers. But McCain didn’t attend and neither did Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ), both of whom doubled down with Gang of 8 and got that amnesty bill through the Senate — a true betrayal of the people of Arizona and the entire United States.
