Kelli Ward opens U.S. Senate Exploratory Committee

Accomplished McCain challenger steps forth


Read her statement which begins with these encouraging words:

Dear Friends and Supporters:

I am pleased to announce that I am exploring a run for the US Senate in 2016! I’ve started the Ward Exploratory Committee in order to test the waters and I hope you will help me make my decision.

As I look to the future, I am receiving huge support from the grassroots, encouraging me to consider a run for the US Senate in 2016. Because of the outcry for a new, positive, principled voice for Arizona in Washington, I am moving to test the waters in regard to this challenging opportunity to determine if the financial and political paths to victory really do exist.

If, during this period, it is revealed that the support exists for a U.S. Senate run, I would run to give Arizona a powerful voice in the fight against Obamacare. I would run to stand up for the enforcement of our immigration laws and to secure the border. I would run to support the Constitution, smaller government and individual liberty. I would run as a positive, passionate, principled non-career politician. I would run to join a fresh, new generation of leaders in DC and end the stronghold that career politicians have had on our government for decades. I would run to be the voice that so many Arizonans long for from their representation in the US Senate. I would run to be your voice.

Her letter continues here

She can’t take on this massive campaign without our help.  We need to step up to the plate and put our money where our mouths are in order to send John McCain into retirement. He doesn’t want to go.

Do the right thing. Do it now.

  2. American Dad says:

    This conservative woman brings multiple layers of education and experience to this race and ultimately to the job. You have my gratitude, Sen. Ward. My donation will folow shortly.

  3. Dennis O'Brien says:

    Kelli Ward is a family physician, married to an Air Force flight surgeon in addition to serving as a two term state senator. She is also quick on the uptake and has been impressive as she’s been traveling the state assessing her chances. I’ve seen and heard her twice and the responses she’s received are far more positive than McCain’s. He and Flake have actually had to staged closed events where you couldn’t obtain tickets and tickets were required for attendance! As a doctor, she can also address Obamacare with first hand knowldge.

  4. Tucson GOP says:

    McCain will have a difficult time beating up on this accomplished woman without looking more like the ass we already know him to be.

  5. Anthem Al says:

    Wow! I just checked out her bio. This is one heck of a lady!! She needs our help to take out McCain. but she can do it if anyone can. Even if you can’t dig too deep, dig as deep as you are able to help fund this important effort. McCain and his lobbyist money will steamroll her otherwise. By now, we should all know that money is the engine that drives the politcal train.

  7. East Valley Conservative says:

    How could this senator / medical doctor not strike fear in the old geezer’s heart? She is youthful, vigorous, spectacularly accomplished, intelligent AND conservative—all things McCain is not.

  8. SmallGovt says:

    Well SRAZ will make sure there is never a dissenting post!

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      You have made the same point repeatedly. We will not be posting it again. Strive for fresh ideas.

    If you don’t like juan mccain put your money where your typing fingers are. She will need lots of $$$ to fend off the smear campaign that has already started against her.
