Arizona State Sen. Kelli Ward to Primary Challenge Incumbent John McCain for US Senate Seat



The only way to change the establishment is to take on the establishment. That is what appears to be happening in Arizona. Arizona state Senator Kelli Ward is set to formally resign her seat to focus on her Republican primary challenge to 79 year old, 5 term US senator and establishment RINO Sen. John McCain.   Maybe this will be the template for others to take on the establishment and flush the system of what has become the go along to get along GOP.

Sorry, with all due respect to John McCain and his military service, you have to know when to walk away. Personally, I believe in term limits and there should never be a such thing as a 5 term senator and a 30 year political career.

Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward

Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward is set to formally resign her seat to focus on her Republican primary challenge to U.S. Sen. John McCain.

Ward says in a letter to Senate President Andy Biggs that she will vacate her seat on Tuesday. The Dec. 2 letter says she plans to devote her energy to defeating the five-term senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee.

Ward is a physician from Lake Havasu City whose current district spans much of Mohave and all of La Paz counties.

      I certainly believe in term limits. I think the founding fathers did not anticipate a person making a career of being a Senator or Congressman. I think the idea was that citizens would serve their countries for a term or two and then return to their lives at home.

      In John McCain’s case, while he certainly was brave while a POW, his record as a Senator is abysmal. He is a RINO and hasn’t been a real Republican for years. He is part of the “Washington Cartel” who’s goal is simply to stay in power no matter what. They have spent our country to the verge of destruction and I am not sure that even a new government can repair the damage in time to avoid disaster. But we must elect new people who will at least try and not “Go along to get along,” as McCain has done his entire political life.

      I hope the people of Arizona retire him with the honor he deserves and replace him with a new Senator. I know nothing of the woman who will run against him, but she has to be better than him.

      It’s time that he realize he is no longer needed in the Senate, if he ever was, and bow out gracefully.

      John McCain’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are enough to make anybody cringe. His disdain for Ted Cruz is because he doesn’t want Me. Cruz to label the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. Makes me sick that Republican leaders have been infiltrated by the corruption of the Muslim Brotherhood. He needs to go!
