Updated Jan. 23, 2021 10:31 pm ETPHOENIX—The rift between the Arizona Republican Party’s establishment and pro-Trump wing widened as committee members censured Republican Gov. Doug Ducey; Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, the party’s presidential nominee in 2008; and former GOP Sen. Jeff Flake.
Republicans also re-elected Kelli Ward, a key Donald Trump backer, as chairwoman. Endorsed by Mr. Trump, she had traded barbs with Mr. Ducey and other establishment figures and urged passage of the censures.“This election cycle exposed we have too much cronyism in our party from top to bottom,” she said.
Arizona’s Republican divisions are mirrored in other states in the wake of Mr. Trump’s election loss and the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Ten House Republican members who voted to impeach Mr. Trump for urging supporters to protest at the Capitol are being targeted for primary challenges. headtopics.com
In Kentucky on Saturday, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) fended off a small group of Trump loyalists who oppose his remarks that he is keeping an open mind about convicting Mr. Trump in his Senate trial. Read more: The Wall Street Journal »

And the Republican party implodes. Those of us who are right leaning moderates/libertarians wanted the Republicans that this would be the result from Trump. But no one listened. The GOP earned this. Maybe the Libertarian party will finally have a chance now... Thus says the Lord: Cursed [with great evil] is the strong man who trusts in/relies on frail man, making weak [human] flesh his arm, whose mind/heart turn aside from the Lord...he shall be like a shrub or a person naked/destitute in the desert; and he shall not see any good come
Done by the same people that are asking for ‘Unity’ The rift in the party might be as deep as the Grand Canyon Where were they when Dems cheated on the election? How is it though the dirty lowlifes in the party always end up in the top positions (e.g. McConnell, McCarthey, Cheney, Ducey, Kemp, ohio gov, MD gov)?
Cult is the word that springs to mind Another example of this insidious CancelCulture I call all the Arizona GOP to the OK Corral for a wild west DRAW, I'm your daisy! Now leave these honest folk who vote their consciences and speak out for TRUTH alone, here!?! Phoenix, Arizona Police and southwest Wisconsin allies here in Puerto Vallarta already broadcasting English language lies about May 15, 1964 Phoenix, AZ murder of my father, re: Eislie Fennimore, Wisc. connections.
What happened to 'FREEDOM OF SPEECH'? SenateDems HouseDemocrats chuckschumer SpeakerPelosi See, these are the kind of people you are working with. Do not let them get away with anything. Why does anyone care about Cindy McCain? Why so many people are angry with Trump's loss? We did exactly as he told us before the election to do 😳Don't believe me? Read it yourself the great leader quote
It’s past time for at least two more parties Very Difficult choice btn loyalty to a 1term Loser's Cult with Loyalty to Facts. McCain torpedoed the end of Obamacare with his backstabbing vote. He was never a Republican, but pure RINO, just like Flake. Cindy is no one to admire. She's a Democrat, so let her stick with her party. Move on.
Next to FL, AZ has some of the craziest reps. So, unsurprising. We need more cindymccain & MittRomney Arizona Republicans are censuring the wrong people. Donald Trump organized and incited the violent and murderous assault on the U.S. Capitol which tried to lynch VP Mike Pence and stop the acceptance of Electoral College vote.
What happened to the Republicans forgiveness being that they claim to be the religious party! Does the word HYPOCRITE come to mind? RegularResister They are engraving their own tombstone. Yes. It is regrettable that Flake and McCain couldn't see past personal issues. They can feel proud when our guys start dying in Syria, diabetics are paying big bucks for insulin and criminals keep being let out. But at least the Orange Man isn't tweeting right?
It's a badge of honor. DonaldJTrumpJr EricTrump You all must love this AZGOP let’s see what else you can lose by being such crazy assholes! 'Arizona GOP censures members for supporting country over party' FYH You are witnessing the weakening of the Republican Party and the birth of a 3rd party. Shame on them for censuring truth tellers.
👏👏👏 Boy, bye Trumpets still sore over Trump’s loss to Biden. Yet they’ve presented no evidence that Trump’s loss was due to fraud. They’re just pouting while America moves on under legally elected Biden. 4 the trillionth time, do u have proof that 81 mil voters somehow voted fraudulently? Forever blue Arizona... I think that seals it. GOP has lost their damn minds.
How are things going down for Republicans after Trump's lost? Full-on penalizing the centrists. Worth reading. Here we have 3 individuals who refused to be compromised , bravo
