McCain Stumps for Wallace, Jr

John McCain is scheduled to headline a fundraiser for George Wallace Jr.'s campaign for Lt. Governor later in the month. Wallace has also had GOP bigwigs like Haley Barbour and Fred Thompson sign up to help his campaign.

Obviously this is a coup for Wallace as McCain brings credibility and fundraising appeal to the campaign. However, I'm a little surprised to see McCain so publicly back Wallace. Certainly George Wallace, Jr. has a record of populism that many Republicans can embrace, but he also has some affiliations that might make a Republican with national aspirations nervous.

Wallace's meeting with the Council of Conservative Citizens, an alleged "hate group, raised some eyebrows throughout Alabama. Wallace's local connections and extensive record probably gives him enough latitude to avoid too much damage from the event, but for someone like John McCain it might not be that easy.

In 2000, McCain took George W. Bush to task for speaking at Bob Jones University and not criticizing their segregationist and anti-Catholic stances. For McCain to publicly back and raise money for Wallace, does seem to be inconsistent.

Events like these further cement Wallace's status as the frontrunner in the LG race, but don't be surprised if the national media (or McCain opponents) pick up on the fundraiser should McCain make another bid for the White House.

I heard they were actually doing three fundraisers that day. One in Huntsville, Birmingham, and Montgomery. Something statewide like that.

well, this confirms McCain has been in the kitchen too long. Wallace should go find a real job, if he is employable. Has anyone in his family ever done anything that didnt involved public money. acorns dont fall far from the tree and i believe he is just as corrupt as his daddy and uncle. McCain must not have done any research before getting linked at the wallet with this clan.

The Southern Poverty Law Center calls anything a "hate group" if it comes within 20 yards of a Confederate flag.

I'm not supporting anyone who's been a whore for Big Power/Big Gas. Every member of the PSC should be kicked our on their ear, rather than rewarded by being elected to any other office.

I feel that it is pretty evident aht McCain is just trying to build up his reputation on the far right, as that is what killed him in 2000.

This blog made a low blow with the comment on the Council of Conservative Citizens. Calling them a "hate group" is a stretch, but for certain, George speaking to them is not the issue you are making.
McCain is one of many who recognize the talent and appeal of George Wallace Jr. George will be our Governor one day--the sooner the better!!!

They said "alleged hate group" which of course the CCC is according to the SPLC. You can disgree with the SPLC but it is a fact that the CCC is an alleged hate group.

Reading the post by the George Wallace Jr. fan made me want to upchuck. Little Georgie has absolutely nothing going for him other than his dad's name. What has Georgie done recently other than kiss Alabama Power's rear end? Anyone?

A race between Little Georgie and little Jim will be like watching a train wreck. Regardless of who wins, this State loses. The only consolation is that these two mental midgets will be running for the most meaningless constitutional office in Alabama.

Can george wallace jr hold a real job? has he ever had a real job? I remember years ago he thought he was gonna be a country music star. I guess that turned out to be too much like work. But look at Perry Jr., another worthless stuffed shirt. Look at Jan Cook? My god, she has the ethics of siegelman.
Sullivan? yall can figure that one out. I agree with the other poster that no one on the psc should be elected to anything, but further they should all get investigated by the FBI. Wallace is a siegelman waiting to happen. I guess Mark Kennedy will tell Wallace what to do. (kennedy was voted the most corrupt judge in america by readers digest- he is wallace's brother in law)

Poor Luther Strange, the dilletante bradley arant DC lobbyist. I guess all his years in DC didnt help him earn any respect there either. It is odd McCain and the rest of Repub Sen. Delegation are working hard to elect Wallace. Everybody knows wallace for what he is but only the Senators know Strange for what he isnt. Politics makes strange bedfellows, but incompetence is a great equalizer. Luther should have stayed in DC where at least he fit in.

People may want to attack the SPLC for this or that, but their intelligence report on hate groups is widely regarded in Republican and Democratic circles of power. It is a realistic assessment of the threats posed by different groups.
