Sen. John McCain's reelection campaign is facing a bit more competition tonight after Chris Simcox, co-founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, announced he's dropping his primary challenge to McCain and endorsing former Congressman J.D. Hayworth.
Simcox comments from the announcement
Last April I made the decision to challenge John McCain because his votes for bailouts and open borders confirmed what so many of us knew to be true. He had been in office for too long, and he was not interested in defending conservative principles.
A lot has changed since then. The bad news is that the Obama Administration has taken us very far in the wrong direction. The good news is that the people of this country have woken up!
And the time is ripe for a new Republican Revolution!
Good news for Hayworth who will now enjoy the support of a wide range of conservative Republicans against McCain's reelection.
