Congratulations to U.S. Sen. John McCain, who was presented with the Watchdog Award this week by the Arizona Tax Research Association.

Arizona Republic columnist Robert Robb presented the award in recognition of McCain's "no-holds-barred fight against pork and wasteful spending."

McCain said, "Fighting wasteful spending in Washington is often a very lonely battle, so your recognition and support mean a great deal to me."

ATRA President Kevin McCarthy cited McCain's "diligent opposition to the wasteful and frivolous spending of taxpayers' dollars."
