Can Trump Cost McCain Re-Election?

Interesting

Sen. John McCain says this may be his toughest senatorial race yet.

The reason?

Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, and his pointed remarks about Mexico and undocumented immigrants as well as his high unfavorability rating among Latinos.

In a speech at a private fundraiser in Arizona last month, McCain, a Republican, said that the real estate tycoon’s alienating rhetoric toward Hispanics could be detrimental to his own re-election, according to Politico, which reports that it obtained a recording of the speech.

“If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life,” McCain said, according to Politico. “If you listen or watch Hispanic media in the state and in the country, you will see that it is all anti-Trump. The Hispanic community is roused and angry in a way that I've never seen in 30 years.”

McCain is seeking his sixth term in the U.S. Senate. He's facing a challenge from former state senator Kelli Ward in the Aug. 30 GOP primary, and his likely opponent in the general election is Democratic U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick.

McCain is one of several Republicans running for the Senate in states with large Latino electorates who are concerned that their party’s likely presidential nominee’s negative image among that voting bloc will have repercussions on their own races.

Politico noted that Republicans are defending about 25 seats this year. Many of the seats in contention are in Democratic or swing states.

Can McCain cost his own re-election?  If McCain can't get the people to re-elect him it won't be Trump's fault.  If the people are excited about him they'll go out and vote for him just like they did to nominate Trump.

True


But what about the possibility of Repubs losing senate seats in 2016?

Same answer.  If those up for re-election cannot excite their constituents enough for them to get out and vote for them it is THEIR fault and nobody else.  That's the problem with people these days.  They are always looking to blame somebody else for their own problems!

Everyone needs to be accountable for their own problems!

How about here in Illinois?  Trump has nothing to do with the RINOISM of Mark Kirk.  He is a disgrace, and votes a LOT with Dick Durbin, so he might as well be a Democrat.

I will not vote for the Democrat challenger, but I could not vote for Kirk ever again.  The Democrat will probably win.  Kirk deserves to be thrown out on his RINO posterior.

As does John McCain.

If they were all that worried about losing those seats they would stop acting like children and bring the party together  Angry

McAmnesty should have been voted out long ago, along with many others just like him !  Perhaps voters are angry enough now to really do it, they found out apathy didn't work.

The old codger should have been gone a long time ago, I couldn't care less. He's a total POS anyway. So are 99% of the rest of them. Angry

I think McCain and Romney are jealous because when they were running for President they couldn't get the support from the American people like Trump can !

Exactly! It would be great if a true conservative would run against McCain and beat him in the Republican primary. Better yet, McCain should just retire.
