On Sunday, Meghan McCain, TV panelist on “The View,” said that “headlines are ridiculous” which said she no longer identified as a Republican.
The temperamental McCain blasted a tweet by reporter Dan Nowicki, who was referring to an article in USA Today.
“I stated very clearly I am a member of the party, and vote on the republican ticket but that I put my conservative principles and worldview above all else. I was trying to explain the difference between Trump populists and classic Regan (sic) republican,” tweeted the testy McCain.
On Saturday, Dr. Kelli Ward, who ran against Meghan McCain’s father, Sen. John McCain, in the 2016 Republican Primary, was elected to the Chairmanship of the Arizona Republican Party.
Ward defeated AZGOP Chair Jonathan Lines at the party’s Annual Statutory Meeting.
The election of Ward signaled an end to McCain camp control of the Arizona party apparatus.
Meghan McCain, who has expressed distaste for the grassroots of the Republican Party, tweeted about Ward’s election: “Don’t get me started on this…. great day for Az Democrats.”
The response was scathing from those who cheered Dr. Ward’s victory:
So glad the McCain stranglehold may be ending in Arizona and across the country. Down with #Elitists.
