Scott Brown To Campaign For John McCain In Arizona This Weekend


Scott Brown to campaign for John McCain in Arizona this weekendAs Republican lawmakers who are up for reelection later this year face tough battles ahead of them, they are increasingly counting on their party’s rising stars to boost their electoral chances.

In recent weeks, Sarah Palin has made a string of appearances on various campaign trails, most notably stumping for her former presidential running mate Senator John McCain who is facing a primary challenge in Arizona.

According to media reports, McCain has now reached out to another popular Republican – the newly elected Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown – to aid his effort, as Brown’s surprise win last January has energized the GOP.

Brown and the five-term Arizona senator are scheduled to appear together at a rally at Grand Canyon University’s Antelope Gymnasium in Phoenix this Friday. On Saturday, the two will head to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona-University of Southern California basketball game.

The 73-year-old incumbent is seeking to stave off a primary challenge from former Representative J.D. Hayworth in August. However, despite the support McCain received from Sarah Palin, four Tea Party organizations in Arizona announced that they will not endorse any candidate in the Republican primary, according to CNN.
