Haney, Conservative Slate
squashes McCain, Cheatham
Today's Maricopa County Statutory Meeting at the El Zaribah Shrine Auditorium, was the site of an overwhelming Conservative victory in the election of Republican Party Leadership for the next two years. Incumbent Chairman Rob Haney defeated newcomer McCain supported candidate Bill Cheatham by the largest margin in recent memory.
The winning margin of more than 700 votes, 1281 for Haney to 575 for Cheatham, should be a message that should at long last be accepted by the big government, amnesty loving, left wing of the Party that they are not in step with the majority of Republicans in this state.
If those who advocate for bigger government, ceding of states rights, amnesty, socialized medicine, abortion rights and homosexual rights want to continue in the political arena, perhaps they should follow the advice of President Ronald Reagan:
"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs, which must not be compromised to political expediency or simply to swell its numbers.... And if there are those who cannot subscribe to these conservative principles, then let them go their own way."
Let us know when you are having your Bon Voyage party, so we can join in the celebration.
