A Republican Senator is hopping to rid himself of a possible menace to his next reelection campaign. People who work for Senator John McCain are reportedly preparing for a battle to rid the Arizona Republican Party of all tea party officials. The master plan would replace them with people sympathetic to the senator as he prepares for an expected bid for a sixth term to represent his state in 2016. A quote coming from Arizona public relations executive and McCain ally Gordon James to Politico, “There’s been a huge organizational effort that I’ve never seen before.
