You’ve likely seen the despicable televised ads attempting to link Dr. Kelli Ward, the sole conservative in the AZ U.S. Senate race, to Islamic terrorists and claiming she wants to leave our military vulnerable. This is contemptible since she is a military wife as well as a physician and former state senator.

Don’t allow yourself to be fooled. At 80, John McCain is running — scared — for another 6-year term. Although he uses bravado to target Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick in the General, it’s Primary challenger Kelli Ward he fears.
Ward‘s solid message: “Send a fresh, new voice to the U.S. Senate — Let’s shake up Washington together, “ resonates with McCain weary Arizonans. Show these well-heeled tricksters Arizona Republicans can’t be bought by out-of-state McCain promoting liberals. .
