PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Republicans have censured some of the party's most prominent figures who have found themselves crosswise with former President Donald Trump. GOP state committeemen voted Saturday to formally censure Cindy McCain, former Sen. Jeff Flake and Gov. Doug Ducey. They also voted to give Kelli Ward a second term as party chairwoman. Ward has been one of Trump’s most unflinching supporters even after the GOP lost ground in the state last year. The state GOP's combative style delights Trump’s strongest supporters but worries longtime GOP insiders who have watched the party turn off crucial voters in the suburbs.

  1. Good. The more the two parties fight each other and their own, the less time they’re spending abusing us. Only a moron would suspect that any of them are concerned with anything but their own wellbeing.

    1. Amen and Awomen. RINOs at all political levels who are out of touch with the political base, which means Trump supporters, need to be censured or otherwise removed from leadership positions. The GOP establishment needs to embrace Trump supporters and walk the walk, not just talk the talk every time an election roles around. For example, Rep. Liz Chenny needs to be removed from her leadership position in the house. I see lots of primary challenges in our future.
