The Arizona Republican Party Formally Reprimanded John McCain For A “Liberal” Voting Record And For Working With Democrats In Washington. According to Politico, “The Arizona Republican Party has formally reprimanded Sen. John McCain, censuring him for a liberal voting record and working with Democrats in Washington. The state party adopted a resolution by voice vote condemning the five-term senator for a record that is ‘disastrous and harmful’ to the nation during a party meeting in Tempe on Saturday. The resolution knocks McCain for being critical of his party’s conservative wing while staying ‘eerily silent against liberals,’ working closely with Democrats on immigration reform and not backing a conservative strategy to defund Obamacare, which McCain long warned would result in October’s government shutdown.” [Politico, 1/26/14]
