Kelli Ward Names Christopher Ekstrom as National Finance Chairman
Dallas based investor nationally known conservative leader
Tempe, AZ – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward today announced Dallas, Texas investor Christopher Ekstrom as her National Finance Chairman. “I am looking forward to Chris’s leadership to build a national finance team that will propel me to the nomination next August and victory over the Democrat in November,” Ward said.
Ward continued, “Chris is my kind of guy. Chris created Courageous Conservatives PAC to place a series of hard-hitting ads on the air in Iowa, New Hampshire and other early states in the 2016 GOP primary. Chris has been a major supporter of Senate Conservatives Fund and focuses on helping full-spectrum conservatives such as past support of Chris McDaniel in Mississippi, Josh Mandel in Ohio, and Ted Cruz in Texas. I am honored and humbled that Chris decided to join our team as our National Finance Chairman.
“In 2012 Chris joined with conservatives across the country in support of Jeff Flake’s false claim that he would vote conservative in the US Senate. In just two months Flake showed his true colors by joining the Gang of Eight and voting to give illegal aliens Amnesty losing all of his former supporters like the Senate Conservatives Fund. This is why Chris contacted me to be my National Finance Chairman. Chris understands that changing the Senate is what President Trump needs in order to “drain the swamp” and defeating Jeff Flake has national implications and will be a test in 2018 to decide what type of Republican Party we will be,” Ward added.
Ward was elected twice to the Arizona State Senate representing western Arizona. Last year Ward held Senator John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote and has announced her candidacy against Jeff Flake, with whom she polls neck-and-neck in repeated matchups.
