Self-described "Arlen Specter Republican" John McCann has attacked conservative Steve Lonegan for picking-up the endorsement of United States Senator Ted Cruz.
Through an anonymous "spokesperson", McCann -- who the Bergen Record calls "the right hand man" of Democrat Sheriff Michael Saudino of Bergen County -- said that Lonegan was "out of touch" by accepting the endorsement of Senator Cruz.
So let's see. John McCann's model of a Republican office-holder is Arlen Specter, a RINO so extraordinary that he finally switched parties to Democrat because he believed he had become so distasteful to Republican primary voters. A big government liberal who never met an abortion clinic that he didn't want to fund.
In contrast, Steve Lonegan has the strong support of one of the nation's top conservative leaders, Senator Ted Cruz. The American Conservative Union rated Ted Cruz as voting the conservative position 100 percent of the time. The National Taxpayers Union gave Cruz a 95 percent rating, while the Club for Growth rated Cruz at 96 percent.
When Arlen Specter was a Republican, before he embraced his "inner Obama" and became a Democrat in name as well as in practice, he didn't make it above 50 percent and some years flirted with zero. This is who John McCann is modeling himself on.
You have to ask yourself... Don't we already have a liberal holding the seat? And then the penny drops... McCann is a Democrat patronage employee put up by the Democrats to trash the Republican primary. He isn't real. Just a tool... for the Democrats.
The facts here are plain. The Democrats (McCann included) know and respect the fundraising prowess of Senator Ted Cruz. They know he will raise a half-million to a million dollars for the Republican in the race, Steve Lonegan. They know that there are more than 2,000 Cruz donors who reside in New Jersey.
By attacking Ted Cruz, the spokesperson for "Stumbling John" McCann shows just how clearly out of touch he is.
