Arizona Senator John McCain is threatening a filibuster over the 2011 Defense Authorization Act if language repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is included, according to Roll Call.
“I’ll do everything in my power,” the Arizona Republican said, citing letters from the four service chiefs urging Congress not to act before a Pentagon review of the policy is complete. “I’m going to do everything I can to support the men and women of the military and to fight what is clearly a political agenda.”
In the past, McCain has said the policy should be repealed when military leaders determine it is no longer effective. Unfortunately, McCain is in the middle of a heated primary contest with J.D. Hayworth. Hayworth has the support of the conservative “Tea Party” movement who have turned out en masse early in the 2010 campaign season.
