PRESS RELEASE--Senator McCain Proposes Defense Cuts

Scottsdale, AZ – At a time when our military needs more strength, Senator John McCain has advocated closing Colorado’s U.S. Northern Command, thereby killing jobs in the state of Colorado. Many individuals, on both sides of the aisle, have been quick to condemn Senator McCain’s attacks, calling it unnecessary and harmful.

"Senator McCain, of all people, should know how crucial our military is, and his proposal to close Colorado’s U.S. Northern Command is bad for our military, for the people of Colorado, and the security of the United States," Alex Meluskey, U.S. Senate candidate, said today. "Our country is facing many international threats which harm our way of life and having a strong military is crucial in dealing with these problems. While we should be increasing our military’s budget and arsenal, Senator McCain’s proposal would only hurt our country, our families, and jeopardize national security. The only way we prevail against these international threats is a strong military. While Senator McCain has forgotten President Reagan’s ‘Peace through Strength’ doctrine, I will always stand for our military and never weaken our armed forces,” said Meluskey.

The Arizona Republican U.S. Senate primary will take place on August 30th.

Small businessman, radio host and FAIRtax champion Alex Meluskey is running a grassroots campaign to take on sitting U.S. Senator John McCain in the Arizona Republican Primary in the same vein as now-Congressman Dave Brat’s historic 2014 takedown of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Mr. Meluskey is taking on the establishment in Washington, D.C. and an entrenched 5-term Senator at a time when America needs new ideas to solve our nation’s challenges.
