Valid concerns should be addressed
In the news section of her website, Dr. Kelli Ward for U.S. Senate, senate candidate Kelli Ward is taking heat from commenters for her post, My Prayers to John McCain, Such is the political world today.
Kelli Ward is a physician and is addressing John McCain’s serious medical condition. His own doctors at Mayo Clinic have described his malignant brain tumor as aggressive and resistant to treatment. Sen. McCain evidenced his inabilities during his recent questioning of former FBI Director James Comey, in what was described in the media as “bizarre and incoherent.” We now know the reason.
Dr. Ward is no longer running against the nearly 81-year-old John McCain, who was reelected to another six-year-term in 2016 but is challenging virulent Trump opponent Jeff Flake. She gains no foothold by suggesting McCain not attempt to subject himself to the rigors of the U.S. Senate and concentrate on his treatment and enjoy time with his family. He will be undergoing a tough treatment regime, and should be with his loved ones. There is nothing untoward about suggesting he step aside, saying, “When the time comes that Senator McCain can no longer perform his duties in the Senate at full capacity, he owes it to the people of Arizona to step aside.”
That is reality for both Sen. McCain, the people of Arizona and the nation as evidenced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell putting the critical vote on health care reform on ice due to McCain’s absence, where every vote was needed to pass and McCain was recovering from brain surgery.
