Arizona Republicans censure Senator McCain as too 'liberal'

U.S. Senator McCain attends a session of World Economic Forum in DavosBy David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) – Arizona Republicans on Saturday censured U.S. Senator John McCain, the party’s 2008 presidential nominee, for a record they called too “liberal,” in a sign of continued distrust some party members in the state have for the so-called political maverick. The resolution passed by a voice vote at an Arizona Republican Party meeting of 1,600 committee members at a church in Tempe, Arizona, said Tim Sifert, a spokesman for the state organization. It went on to reprimand McCain, who has served 27 years in the Senate, for “a long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats.” The resolution condemned McCain’s role in helping to craft a bill that passed the Senate last year that would provide a pathway to citizenship for up to 11 million illegal immigrants, which the state Republicans called “amnesty.” Among the other complaints against McCain in the resolution were his support for funding the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and positions he has taken on gun rights.
