Ward Blasts Flake as One of Three “Republican” Votes for Liberal Pro-Sanctuary City Judge
Even John McCain didn’t vote for Orrick

Tempe, AZ – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward today blasted incumbent “Republican” Jeff Flake over his 2013 vote to confirm the liberal federal judge whose order yesterday temporarily blocked President Trump’s plan to defund sanctuary cities.

Flake joined liberal “Republican” Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and 53 Senate Democrats in support of confirming William H. Orrick III as a District Judge in the Northern District of California on May 15, 2013.  All 41 “No” votes on Orrick were cast by Republicans.

Flake was also the only Senate Judiciary “Republican” to support Orrick’s nomination, joining with ten Democrats against seven Republicans on February 23, 2013 to approve Orrick.

“Even John McCain and Lindsey Graham voted against Orrick, but not Jeff Flake,” Ward said.  “Jeff Flake voted for a radical leftwing activist judge who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Barack Obama, worked in the Justice Department while they went after Arizona’s SB 1070 law and who on the bench tried to block the release of the incriminating Planned Parenthood videos.”

“And now this...”

“You can tout all the conservative scores you want,” 

Ward said, “but the courts have become the battleground for issues more than anything else and Jeff Flake’s vote for William Orrick III, not just on the floor but in committee, gave left-wing Democrats the cover they needed to get this radical extremist a lifetime tenure as a federal judge.”

Ward continued, “right now Jeff Flake has a photo of himself with Justice Gorsuch as his Facebook cover picture.  He needs to substitute that smiling shot with one of him with William Orrick III because that’s the dangerous ideology he’s enabled on our federal courts,” Ward added. 

“Arizona needs a strong, conservative voice who will support strong conservative judges and oppose radical leftist ideologues like William Orrick III,”  Ward said.  “Jeff Flake has failed Arizona too many times, and this is just one more example.  It’s time for him to go.”

Ward held John McCain to 51 percent of the vote in the 2016 primary and has announced against Flake, who is up next year. She is polling neck-and-neck with Flake in repeated matchups.

Dr. Kelli Ward Slams Rep. Sinema on Her Support from Dark Places

Support from porn purveyor indicative of larger problem


Tempe, AZ – Republican Senate candidate and physician, Dr. Kelli Ward, responded to the latest allegations regarding the notorious Backpage founders’ support of Representative Kyrsten Sinema. "This is just another example of Representative Sinema's consistent failure to protect the vulnerable at the expense of her big-money backers," Ward said. "Whether it's the butchers at Planned Parenthood or the alleged enablers of child and human trafficking at Backpage, Representative Sinema attracts support from very dark places."

Dr. Ward is challenging incumbent #NeverTrump Senator Jeff Flake in the Republican primary. "Voters are tired of our politicians representing their special interest donors over the regular people," Dr. Ward continued. "It's why they rejected political insiders like Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton to elect President Trump and why in 2018 the voters are going to defeat special interest puppets like Senator Flake and Representative Sinema."

Dr. Ward rejected Representatives Sinema's "weak" attempt to remedy the situation. "Donating dirty money to a group that combats sexual abuse does not relieve Kyrsten of her support for these monsters and their causes. It certainly doesn't explain why she accepted their support in the first place."

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.

 


Joyce Wants You To Support Dr. Kelli Ward For US Senate

"Meet Dr. Kelli Ward: When Kelli looks at what’s happening in our federal government, she knows Arizonans need new representation in the U.S. Senate, and that’s why she is running again for the US Senate. Our fight has just begun to limit government, lower taxes, secure the border and heal the VA."

Listen to Joyce Kaufman's interview with Dr. Kelli Ward here: 


Hope For The Beginning Of Real Change On The Border

What Senator Flake seems to have forgotten is that drones, cameras, and more Border Patrol are already in place. What we need is a defined, obvious border barrier and shutting down sanctuary cities. Unfortunately Senator Flake refers to cities which violate federal law and refuse to work with ICE when illegals are detained, as “so-called sanctuary cities.” With the mindset that these cities are “so-called”, don’t plan on Jeff Flake ever seeking the good of our nation or the State of Arizona. Obviously by labeling them “so-called” he doesn’t believe sanctuary cities even exist.

Senator Flake will be tested in his upcoming mid-term re-election bid by Republican candidate Kelli Ward. Dr. Ward challenged John McCain for his seat in the most recent election, holding him to just 51 percent of the vote. She is a very viable candidate to unseat Senator Flake in 2018.

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.

Kelli Ward Names Jim Torina as Arizona Finance Chairman

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward today announced Scottsdale resident James E. Torina as her Arizona Finance Chairman.

Jim_headshot.jpg“I am looking forward to Jim’s leadership to build an Arizona finance team that will propel me to the nomination next August and victory over the Democrat in November,” Ward said.

“Jim has more than 30 years of proven experience in forming profitable commercial enterprises, and his successful ventures cover many areas of business from software, healthcare, construction, to real estate development. His companies have twice been placed in INC 500 and he has twice been awarded Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year. Jim is also versed in raising capital, having successfully raised over $100 million to fund his companies,” Ward added.

Torina is a Marine Corps veteran, a past Washington State University Trustee and Board Member of both the School of Entrepreneurship and School of Pharmacy, and is active in numerous charitable ventures.

Ward was elected twice to the Arizona State Senate representing Mohave County. Last year held Senator John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote and has announced her candidacy against Flake, with whom she polls neck-and-neck in repeated matchups.


Kelli Ward Endorses Sessions Plan to End Sanctuary City Aid

Taxpayers forced to fund left-wing local governments “outrageous”

Tempe, AZ – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward endorsed Trump Administration proposals to stop funding for sanctuary cities that do not follow U.S. immigration law.  

“It’s outrageous that taxpayers are forced to subsidize left-wing local governments who ignore our immigration laws and provide sanctuary to some of the most violent and dangerous criminals anywhere,” Ward said.

“Unfortunately, Senator Jeff Flake has joined with liberals and Democrats repeatedly to support illegal alien amnesty,” Ward said. “Perhaps he should run in the Democratic Primary where his liberal views are much more popular.

“Arizona needs a Senator who will stand up and fight against illegal immigration and will work to deport the violent criminals being given sanctuary by do-gooder liberal politicians more concerned about the so-called ‘rights’ of illegal aliens than the rights of American citizens,” Ward added.

Ward last year held Senator John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote and has announced her candidacy against Flake, considered one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents in the nation.

Ward Endorses Trump Budget Framework

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward today endorsed the budget proposal President Trump put forward this morning and urged Arizona’s representatives to move it through quickly.

“The President’s budget begins the process of draining the swamp by eliminating dozens of unconstitutional, duplicative and unnecessary federal programs that should be run by the states, if at all,” Ward said. “I hope our five Republican House members stand united with the president in support of this plan.”

Ward said she knows her own Congressman Paul Gosar will be a solid vote for the president’s spending cuts but said she had personally sent an email to both Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake asking that they put politics aside and support the president’s budget.

“The President’s budget proposal eliminates wasteful spending and redirects dollars to the Constitutional functions of border security and national security,” Ward noted. “I know both Senators have had their differences with the president with Jeff Flake even admitting he voted for Evan #NeverTrump McMullin against President Trump. But I hope both will put politics aside and stand with the president as he makes the most significant reduction in federal spending in our lifetimes.”

Ward is challenging Flake for renomination in 2018 and last year held John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote in his primary election. She argues that Arizona needs a conservative Senator to stand with the president and take apart the failed liberal welfare state and that Jeff Flake is just too “moderate” to do the job. If reelected, Flake will have been in Washington for nearly a quarter century.
