As you are aware, Chris Simcox, founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, has resigned his position with the group and has officially launched his bid to challenge John McCain for the US Senate seat.
A national blog, RedStateLeader picked up the story and was all abuzz about a piece that ran on Politico.com that handicapped the race between McCain and Simcox.
The blog posting commented on allegations of financial misappropriations at Minuteman HQ and inflammatory language used by Simcox and wondered what the people of Arizona thought about the chances of beating McCain in a primary.
It is interesting to see the commentary by national pundits on our local races. The media coverage and opinions from outside spectators in Washington have a much different take than what we have about the race. Head on over and check out the story at RedState Leader and give your thoughts on what’s really happening on the ground out here in Arizona.
