Arizona Sen. and 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain today headlined a fundraising email for former campaign staffer Lang Sias in the crowded CD-7 Republican primary, dealing another blow to the rapidly-dwindling prospects for ex-U.S. Senate candidate Ryan Frazier.
Full text after the jump: writes McCain, “Lang understands, as I do, that prosperity and economic growth do not come from government bureaucrats, but rather from American small businesses, entrepreneurs and innovation…In Congress, as he has done his entire life, he will be a leader on the issues that matter most to Colorado voters, and their families.”
We still have no idea who Lang Sias is, but that’s even worse news for Frazier. It’s not good when your opponent is unknown but still gets the bigger endorsement.

Subject: Endorsement from John McCain
As one of my strongest supporters, we share many of the same conservative beliefs in making our country stronger and safer for our families and future generations. I’m humbled by your support, and I know that together, we can make sure that our best days are still ahead of us.
I am writing today to tell you about a great American who shares our values and has served our nation with honor and integrity his entire life. Lang Sias has just announced that he is running to represent Colorado’s 7th Congressional District, and I hope that you will SUPPORT HIS CAMPAIGN.
Lang has put it all on the line for our country many times. He has risked his life in service, flying missions as a navy pilot in the first Iraq War, and more recently serving on the ground in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He has fought for us, and now I am asking you to stand with him.
He will not allow Democrat Congressman Perlmutter to vote in lockstep with liberal special interests in Washington, DC, when he should be standing with the hard-working families in Colorado.
I’m proud to have contributed $5,000 from my political action committee to help Lang’s campaign off to a fast start. WON’T YOU JOIN ME IN SUPPORTING LANG WITH YOUR MOST GENEROUS CONTRIBUTION OF $10, $25, OR EVEN $100? Your contribution will help Lang build a strong organization throughout the 7th Congressional District, and help get his positive, conservative message out to voters from Aurora to Arvada.
Lang understands, as I do, that prosperity and economic growth do not come from government bureaucrats, but rather from American small businesses, entrepreneurs and innovation. We will succeed and grow as a nation when we keep taxes low, reduce government spending and allow businesses to flourish. In Congress, as he has done his entire life, he will be a leader on the issues that matter most to Colorado voters, and their families.
Please stand with me today to support a true patriot, and help send Lang Sias to the United States Congress.
