Ann Kirkpatrick is an example of McMisdirection. Primary challenger Dr. Kelli Ward presents actual threat
The negative commercials have hit the airwaves. They not only show a distorted image of Dr. Kelli Ward, a two-term Arizona state senator, military wife, mother and physician, but also grotesque misrepresentation of her conservative record while absurdly claiming she would “leave Arizonans vulnerable to attack from terrorists.”
Unless you’re paying close attention, it would be easy to miss the group putting out the vile deception: Arizona Grassroots Action PAC. Lisa Lisker is listed as the PAC’s treasurer. The address of this PAC attempting to present itself as Arizona grassroots activists is curiously based in Alexandria, Virginia — a stone’s throw from the seats of power in Washington, D.C. The high-dollar donors are listed in the Federal Elections Commission April 15, 2016 Report of Receipts and Disbursements — covering the period from January 1, 2016 through March 31, 2016.
Even after making disbursements of $127,619.20, the PAC still has $714,062.44 listed as “Cash on Hand.” Take a guess where that money will be directed. Lisa Lisker, owner of a D.C. area firm which provides political financial consulting and collaboration with PACs, was coincidentally the treasurer for Marco Rubio’s failed presidential bid. Rubio and McCain were connected by the golden amnesty chain holding together the ‘Gang of Eight’ Republicrats and Dems, all committed to the flood of cheap illegal labor entering the U.S. The Chamber of Commerce generously funds the candidates who tender their votes resulting in undercutting wages of American workers.
Among the scant smattering of Arizona donors, the list is rife with big spenders from California, Florida, Nevada, New York, Maryland, Massachusetts and Michigan — all of whom obviously have the best interests of Arizonans at heart — people like San Francisco resident Gregory Wendt.
“There’s something obviously slimy about a powerful senator using out-of-state money to try and purge local critics in his own party. It’s anti-democratic and exactly the kind of thing that McCain, who claimed to be for campaign finance reform, was expected to oppose.
Except he’s been doing it for a while.
This is the problem with McCain. He’s not only a liberal Republican, but he’s vindictive and ethically challenged. He doesn’t seem to represent Arizona. He represents a handful of wealthy out-of-state donors trying to manufacture voters still willing to blindly pull the lever for him.”
Although John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day and is arrogantly running for another 6-year senate term, sends out numerous campaign beg-a-thon emails citing Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick as his challenger as if he has a clear route to the General Election. He knows — as do his donors who fund this despicable PAC — that his actual challenge is Dr. Kelli Ward. That fact is made all too clear by the fact that it’s solely Republican Kelli Ward who is in the sights of the vicious, liberal-funded ad campaign. McCain’s tried and true modus operandi is to tack right at election time and revert back immediately after the votes are tallied. He and his junior sidekick, Jeff Flake, who has honed the same strategy, were working with far left Democrats Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin other amnesty”gangsters” within hours after the ballots were counted.
Kelli Ward says, “Send a fresh, new voice to the U.S. Senate: Let’s shake up Washington together.” Arizonans have that chance! Let’s not botch it. Show these deceivers Arizona Republicans can’t be bought by out-of-state leftists.
