Ask around and you will hear only the most establishment person saying McSally can win her Senate seat in 2020.  In a time of personality politics and in a time of high enthusiasm for President Trump's re-election and given McSally has not supported our president on some very important immigration policy, most of us think we will end up with two democrat Senators with McSally as the Republican candidate.  Perish the thought.  That would be the ultimate insult.

This man is not a candidate... at least, publicly.  Yet.  But read on and see what you think.  Another Steve Gaynor, coming out of nowhere?  Plenty of money if he choses to use it.  He couldn't make the same mistake as Gaynor: spend $4.5million against his Republican opponent and very little to win in the General.

So here is a possible candidate to take on McSally in the primary.  There is a survey to express your feelings about this man becoming a candidate.


Daniel McCarthy Biography
Daniel McCarthy (born April 2nd, 1985, in Watertown, New York) is an American businessman who lives in Glendale, Arizona. He and his wife Lexi are blessed with four children.

Daniel grew up in Watertown, a small city neighboring Fort Drum Army Base. Watertown is a lake effect snow belt city. Growing up Daniel was a typical American kid who enjoyed his church, fishing, friends, sports (particularly wrestling) and family. School was easy for Daniel but despite offers from universities, Daniel was eager to get started with the real world.

Daniel’s brother Michael was stationed at Luke Air Force Base and Daniel often visited Arizona starting when he was 13 years old. He loved Arizona and the heat that meant he was never going to have to shovel snow again. When Daniel graduated high school, he drove across the country and relocated to Arizona, landing in the West Valley. Later, Daniel’s family would migrate to a sensible, low-tax, low-regulation, high-freedom state.

Daniel immediately went to work in a small call center where he met his future wife Elexsis. The courtship was short and like most things in Daniel’s life, he knew what he wanted and got right after it. After just 3 months they were married. Daniel excelled in the call center environment and found himself in a leadership position after just 6 months. He was recruited by the University of Phoenix Online as an enrollment counselor and was the youngest employee hired by the University at the time. He was promoted to management 6 months later and was a corporate trainer as well. Within that 15-month period at the University of Phoenix, Daniel and Lexi purchased their first home and decided they could do a great job of selling homes. History proved them correct.

Daniel and Lexi quickly became top agents in the Arizona market. In 2007 after 3 years of real estate sales, they were granted the rights to open real estate offices inside Walmart Supercenter stores and after becoming a positive disruption in the real estate world, they merged their brokerage into West USA Realty in 2010, eventually franchising the concept and opening 40 offices around the country. They eventually left the West USA Realty partnership in 2013, which Daniel described as a tough move. “I learned my first real business lessons from that merger, so it was difficult to leave because that business was like a child to us – still, we knew it was time to leave”.

In 2013, Daniel and Lexi then became serial entrepreneurs opening DeLex Realty and The Original MakeUp Eraser. Today, DeLex Realty is ranked #10 in Arizona and MakeUp Eraser is a global sensation with distribution in over 60 countries, more than 10,000 retail locations including Sephora, and more than $50 Million in annual sales. Daniel and Elexsis own and operate other ancillary businesses and love free market capitalism. Daniel even hosts a fun TV/YouTube Reality Show called Last Home Standing.

Daniel is a Board Member for his local HOA, is active as a Precinct Committeeman in the Republican Party, and he and his wife are supportive of numerous valley charities.
Daniel and Lexi and their four children Cadence, Daniel Jr, Emily and Nolan reside in Glendale, AZ, along with their two Boston Terriers Paul and Penelope.

I've known McCarthy for a couple of years and have had a half dozen detailed or more conversations before 2019.  

Smart, Grounded, Strong, Civil, Firm, Winner. - We'd be fortunate to have him as a candidate for any office in Arizona.

If Alex Meluskey is behind Daniel McCarthy, I think he would be a good candidate. Alex knows what it takes to run for Senator and could be a very valuable asset.

I  know nothing about McCarthy nor whether he is capable of winning.  I do know that McSally was McConnell's pick; that she is about as exciting as a mashed potato sandwich; and that she lost to Sinema who should have been handled rather easily.

I do not know him  personally but have read and picked up info here and there. He was a big Trump supporter as well. 

I have also heard that the RNC has requested he stand down. If that is true then in my eyes he is a good candidate to primary McSally. At this point what do we have to lose?

If the RNC is asking him to stand down, we need to get behind him.  I can't digest AZ as having two dem senators.  Which is what we will have with McSally.  I went to the survey and begged him to run.  You should all do that.  We have nothing to lose that we are in line to lose already.

A month ago I receive a report on the vetting group of about 18 folks who had lunch with Daniel and how impressed with him they were.  I know of most of the folks who were at that meeting and respect their positive viewpoints.  It will be an uphill battle to go up against the RNC and the RNSC who will dump tons of money into McSally's campaign.  But, Daniel will be a lot more of a Freedom Caucus type of guy and a lot better for AZ.  I am looking forward to hearing of his decision to run, and will get behind him.  McSally is so insulated by the McCain machine, we cannot even get to her to train her to be the Senator she should be for AZ.  So, I say, Daniel... Go for it! 

Please take Pat J's advice: go to the link and send in that survey to encourage this guy to run.  He's quite wealthy and we have no doubt he can spend what it takes... providing the election is fair and honest!

We do not need to be dictated by Party leaders on who is going to be the Republican Candidate for Senator of Arizona. I see nothing wrong about a Primary deciding the winner. I also want both candidates to support each other if they should lose in the State Primary Race. Without that commitment from both candidates, Mark Kelly will win in the final race. Arizona is in a state of Insanity because of Moderate Republicans, and McCain, Kyl, Flake,  and outside money! May the best Candidate win the Primary. From a  successful Real Estate Couple.

Good advice!

Absolutely go for it!

The GOP needs to change the primary date:  August is simply too late in the game for the winner of a contested primary to raise the funds required to defeat a democrat with no primary race.  Andy Tobin was speaker when the change was made and it came back to bite him in his race with Kirkpatrick in CD1.  Who knows what the republicans were thinking of when they fixed such late primary date.

It's the State Legislature who has control of the Arizona Primary date.  This has been kicked around a few times but given the way our legislature works, don't look for a change any time soon.  Since the legislature can stay in session well into May, as we just saw, that leaves little time for lawmakers who plan to run for re-election to get signatures to make the cutoff date.  Then it leaves little time again to actually campaign for the primary.  It's a conundrum!
