I just got the latest fundraising appeal from a certain John Sidney McCain. In it, he goes after J. D. Hayworth as a…big spending liberal?
I’m confident the majority of voters will agree that this is not the time to send a defeated Congressman back to Washington. During his time in office as one of Tom Delay’s leadership team, J. D. Hayworth cast countless votes for earmarks and pork barrel projects that helped balloon our government deficit by billions of dollars. His election would be a substantial setback for the true conservative principles that you and I stand for.
Unfortunately, J.D. Hayworth has a record of talking like a conservative, but voting like a liberal on fiscal issues. As a Member of Congress, he voted for millions of dollars in earmarks at your expense including sprucing up blueberry farms in Maine and researching French fruit flies.
