McCain has his good days, but he is a leftover from disco. Principles don't change but you need a fresh idea or two every century.
From National Journal:
If Salmon runs, it would begin what would likely be the election cycle's most closely watched primary, pitting the former GOP presidential nominee against a sitting lawmaker with the strong support of local and national conservative groups. Adding to the intrigue is that either McCain or Salmon could face a difficult foe in the general election, after Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick surprisingly announced this week that she would run for Senate.
The New York Times this week identified Kirkpatrick as McCain's first "seasoned Democratic challenger" in his five Senate reelection bids, potentially setting him up against both his toughest Democratic opponent and primary challenger yet, at the same time.So Democrats are salivating over a Tea Party nomination.
Just like Mike Lee in Utah.
Oops, he won.
