After the shellacking the RINO segment of the RNC took last week with Eric Cantor’s defeat, one would think they might get the message that voters are sick to death of the business-as-usual tactics. Sadly it seems – they have not.
From all indications, the RNC simply does not care if their anointed candidates are the most popular, most experienced, or best qualified. All that seems to matter is picking the guy or gal who’ll do the RNC’s (mostly liberal) bidding, even if that means working to destroy a solid conservative in the process.
Typical of their low-life tactics is the current mess between primary candidates in Arizona Congressional District-2. Three individuals are running for the coveted seat: Shelley Kais, Martha McSally and Chuck Wooten. The victor will go head to head against the democratic incumbent, Ron Barber.
Shelly Kais is barely worth mentioning, except for the fact that she was McSally’s campaign manager on McSally’s two previous bids for the D-2 congressional seat. McSally failed at both attempts.
When Kais suddenly separated from McSally and decided to run against her in the 2014 primary, speculation ran high on why Kais turned on her old boss.
Could it be that Kais is a ringer, purposely planted to draw votes away from any McSally challenger? Or did Kais lose faith in McSally and now imagines she can do a better job? Either way, the situation looks sketchy.
Martha McSally is a retired US Air Force officer who believes that the few hundred hours she spent flying the A-10 somehow qualifies her for Congress. Following that logic . . .
Nevertheless, immediately after Gabriel Gifford resigned her position on January 25th, 2012, McSally left her home in Germany and raced to Tucson to proclaim her candidacy in the special election. She publicly stated she believed she had been ‘called by God’ to come back to the district and run for congress. More like a phone call from the RNC.
She ran in the primary against Jesse Kelly, an Iraq War veteran and a staunch conservative who professed belief in Pro-life, traditional family values and religious freedom. Since McSally never offered the voters an opinion on these issues, she was soundly beaten.
