Arizona GOP Censures McCain for Being Too Liberal

"Delivering a strong rebuke to Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republicans passed a resolution to censure the one-time presidential nominee for what they characterize as a liberal record that has been 'disastrous and harmful' to the state and nation," the Arizona Republic reports.

"The state GOP party's censure passed by acclamation, meaning by a voice vote. It has no practical effect, but serves as an attempt to embarrass the senator."

"McCain and his office have not commented on the county censure although his supporters point to the party's reputation for ultra-right partisanship. The senator's office on Saturday declined comment on the state censure. McCain is considering seeking a sixth Senate term in 2016."
