Out of the three candidates in the upcoming Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Arizona, only one has a realistic chance of winning the general election in November, and supporting President Donald J. Trump’s wildly popular agenda.
Dr. Kelli Ward has a history of fighting establishment Republicans and standing with President Donald J. Trump. During her 2016 Senate run against Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), she correctly pegged him as “Hillary [Clinton’s] favorite Senator,” noting the similarities between the two. Both, she said, support amnesty for criminal illegals, would oppose tax cuts for the ordinary American, and would block the appointment of conservative judges.
“In 2016, I challenged Sen. John McCain because I knew that he would be a problem for President Trump’s agenda,” says Ward’s campaign website.
Ward recognized two years ago what many Americans are finally realizing in 2018: establishment Republicans and establishment Democrats are playing on the same team. Worse, their team is doing battle with ordinary, hard-working Americans, with whom Trump stands, and with whom Ward will stand.
“Beginning on my first day in office, I will be a champion for ‘America First’ policies that reignite the American economy, eliminate job-killing regulations, and improve the life and liberty of every American,” the site says.
Ward’s main primary opponent is Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ), who is at best a moderate Republican, and at worst a puppet of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and the D.C. donor class-beholden establishment.
McSally can rightly be described as John McCain in a pantsuit.
“McSally changed her stance on immigration reform and on her views of President Trump. As a Congresswoman, she voted for amnesty on several occasions, refusing to support Trump’s proposed border wall. She also opposed the president’s “America First” immigration proposals,” said the Daily Miner, a local Arizona paper.
She is also in cahoots with lifetime-loser and #NeverTrump leech Karl Rove, taking orders from a sketchy Virginia-based non-profit that he founded, and that has donated $500,000 to her campaign. Her SuperPac, DefendArizona, has also received $100,000 plus donations from several individuals who fought tooth-and-nail against Trump. Those donors wasted millions trying stop Trump from becoming president.
The whole point of the Trump presidency was to rebel against the uni-party establishment which, for its own personal gain, ignored the will of the American people, waved across the border millions of criminal illegals, and stifled economic growth and prosperity for all. Ward is the only Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Arizona who supports Trump’s agenda – which is the agenda of hardworking Americans – and is willing to stand up to the swamp-dwelling creatures in D.C. and fight with Trump.
The final Republican in the Arizona primary is former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Sheriff Joe, while strong on borders, is senile and unfit for duty in Washington, D.C.
He was recently duped by “Borat” actor Sacha Baron Cohen in a cringeworthy interview. One can only imagine how he would be trounced by D.C. savages who are far more cunning than Cohen, who is a clown.
The likely Democrat nominee will be Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) who has represented Arizona’s 9th Congressional district, encompassing Scottsdale, Tempe and Mesa since her election in 2012.
Trump won Arizona by about 4% of the vote in 2016. Arizona is perhaps not as red as it once was. Why would Republicans risk running a GOP establishment candidate when Trump’s tried and true America First agenda won Arizona voters just two years ago? It makes far more sense to piggyback off of Trump’s massively successful first 18 months, and fight alongside him in D.C.
To do that, Ward must be the Republican nominee.
