The internal power struggle between the Arizona Republican Party’s most conservative activists and more mainstream GOP members has flared anew with critics accusing the outgoing Maricopa County chairman of improperly appointing more than 108 vacant precinct committeemen assumed to be hostile to U.S. Sen. John McCain and his supporters.

A.J. LaFaro, a conservative McCain critic who is not running again for chairman at Saturday’s Maricopa County GOP meeting, recently submitted 108 applications to fill PC vacancies, including 99 in Legislative District 30, where anti-McCain chairman Timothy Schwartz was ousted in December amid a well-organized effort to moderate inside party politics.
