It's On: Hayworth Vs. McCain

Posted By on Fri, Jan 22, 2010 at 8:28 PM

Former congressman J.D. Hayworth has quit his radio show and may be ready to challenge Sen. John McCain in this year's GOP primary.

Hayworth teases:

It has been a joy to spend weekday afternoons on KFYI. Now, another chapter begins. The call to public service remains, and again it may very well lead to pursuit of public office.

Meanwhile, Rasmussen Reports reveals that Hayworth's numbers are falling against McCain:

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely 2010 Republican Primary voters in Arizona finds the longtime incumbent leading former Congressman J.D. Hayworth by a 53% to 31% margin. In November, the two candidates were virtually even.

Former Minuteman leader Chris Simcox gets four percent (4%) support, while three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate and eight percent (8%) are undecided.

UPDATE: AP reports it's on!
