A new Rasmussen poll shows J.D. Hayworth gaining on John McCain:
Incumbent John McCain now earns just 47% support to challenger J.D. Hayworth’s 42% in Arizona’s hotly contested Republican Senate Primary race, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely primary voters.
McCain has been losing ground since January when he picked up 53% of the potential GOP Primary vote and Hayworth had only 31% support. Last month, the longtime senator and 2008 GOP presidential candidate earned 48% of the vote, while 41% of likely primary voters supported his challenger.
Newly announced Democratic candidate Rodney Glassman, a Tucson City Council member, earns 32% support to Senator John McCain’s 54%. Eight percent (8%) would vote for some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
If McCain’s GOP Primary challenger, former Congressman J.D. Hayworth, is the Republican in the race, he gets 48% support, while Glassman picks up 39% of the vote. Seven percent (7%) would opt for some other candidate, while another seven percent (7%) are undecided.
What part of ILLEGAL don’t progressive liberals understand? Is it kind of like the whole Bill Clinton depending on what the meaning of the word is ‘is’? Anyway, much to the hatred of progressive liberals, Texas lawmaker Debbie Riddle said today that she agrees with the controversial immigration bill passed in Arizona and plans to introduce a similar one in her own state of Texas to combat the flow of illegal immigrants. More from ABC:
She says that like Arizona’s Gov. Jan Brewer, who is under fire from both Democrats and Republicans over the state’s new anti-immigrant law, her first priority is to “make sure that the safety and security of citizens is well established, not to determine whether I get positive or negative or no attention at all.”
“The people who are saying [these laws] are racially motivated are trying to divert attention for their own selfish greed,” said Riddle.
“To say police will be grabbing every Hispanic person off the street, that’s ridiculous,” she said. “That would be an abuse of the law.”
Each officer would have to have “reasonable suspicion” to ask an individual for identification, said Riddle.
“If you’re here legally, then by federal law you have to carry that green card on your person,” she said. “So if you’re here legally, there really shouldn’t be a problem.”
Riddle said that while her district is near Houston and isn’t directly on the border of Mexico, illegal immigrants use her community’s hospitals and schools and leave the bill to “tax-paying citizens of Texas.”
