Conservative challenge to John McCain gaining momentum
Breitbart News, evidencing a depth of understanding of the plight of unrepresented Arizona Republicans, has done a masterful job — through a series of posts —- of introducing the nation to former state senator, Kelli Ward.
Ward, a physician who recently resigned her legislative post to devote full time to the demanding U.S. Senate race, has been traveling the state connecting with voters. Wherever she travels, she is viewed as a welcome relief to John McCain, who works against the interests of the citizenry and blithely lies while doing so. McCain, who has been censured by the elected state committeemen of his own party, will be 80 by Election Day. He is running for a sixth six-year term.
Monday, Breitbart reported on the list of principled state legislators and political leaders who have come forward to endorse Dr. Kelli Ward’s candidacy. The news site notes that these endorsements come in addition to early December news that the Second Amendment defending group Gun Owners of America endorsed Ward over McCain.
The first major endorsement list of her campaign also includes nearly a third of the state senators who have chosen to back Ward over the establishment candidate McCain.
“Arizona needs strong and consistent leadership that can be counted on,” Ward says. “What we have right now is a track record of broken promises and a laundry list of failed policies that are hurting Arizona and its people — this needs to end. I am happy to have the support of my colleagues as we work together to change the direction of Washington.”
An August poll showed Ward beating McCain by nine percent. Then In October she released impressive fundraising numbers, bringing in over half a million dollars for her first quarterly report. The money was raised from 2,100 individual donations. None of those contributors are lobbyists or D.C. interests — unlike McCain, who relies on those and other unsavory sources for funding.
Meet Dr. Kelli Ward. Tell your neighbors about her. Make sure you vote.
