NR Endorses John McCain Over J. D. Hayworth
Over on the home page, the editors endorse John McCain for the GOP choice for Senate in Arizona, over challenger J. D. Hayworth:
Hayworth is, to say the least, not obviously a more exemplary statesman than McCain. On one of the most pressing issues of the day — the need to control federal spending — McCain has had the better record. That Hayworth appeared in infomercials to tell people how to get “free money” from the government underscores the point rather emphatically.
If McCain had a different challenger, we might think differently. But, taken together, these considerations move us to suggest that Arizona Republicans nominate Senator McCain. If ever we needed legislators who favor a resolute foreign policy and budget restraint, that time is now.
All together now: “Those RINOs!”
