Arizona Republican Party Censures McCain For ‘Liberal’ Record
Senator John McCain is too liberal for Arizona’s Republican Party. For that reason the party has censured him.
The resolution to censure McCain was approved by a voice-vote during a meeting of state committee members in Tempe, state party spokesman Tim Sifert said. It needed signatures from at least 20 percent of state committee members to reach the floor for debate.
Sifert said no further action was expected.
McCain spokesman Brian Rogers declined to comment on the censure. But former three-term Sen. Jon Kyl told The Arizona Republic that the move was “wacky.”
