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.Good news for Hayworth who will now enjoy the support of a wide range of conservative Republicans against McCain's reelection.
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!
