Today, Chairman Dr. Kelli Ward delivered a letter to Secretary Katie Hobbs’ office announcing the Republican Party of Arizona’s intent to opt out of the 2020 Presidential Preference Election. State Rep. Anthony Kern joined Chairman Ward at the Secretary of State’s office to be present for the letter signing.
Afterward, Chairman Ward released the following statement:
“Arizonans are excited and energized to send President Trump back to the White House for four more years. This President’s list of accomplishments in his first term are unprecedented—from jobs to securing our border to taking care of our veterans to making healthcare mor
e affordable—and Arizonans have directly benefited. By opting out of the presidential preference election, our united Republican Party of Arizona will save taxpayers millions as we look ahead to the general election on November 3.”
Here are just some of the great Bills Kelli voted YES on while in the Arizona Senate. This is why she was elected by the PCs at the Arizona State Committee. She is definitely who we need as Chair of the Arizona State Republican Party. She votes for the people. MOST IMPORTANT READ of these bills is SB 1330, https://static.votesmart.org/static/billtext/54142.pdf which Kelli sponsored and voted YEA on and passed the Senate.
Dr. Kelli Ward entered politics in 2012 when she was elected to the Arizona State Senate. While serving two terms in office, she continued to practice medicine in emergency departments in Lake Havasu City and Kingman, Arizona.
During her three years serving in the state legislature, Dr. Ward established a proven track record of passing legislation that supported small businesses, preserved the Second Amendment, decreased the size of government, fought the opioid crisis, protected vulnerable Arizona students, and increased school choice. Dr. Ward was one the most effective leaders in the Arizona Senate during her final year in office, getting 19 separate bills through the legislature and to the governor’s desk.
In July 2015, Dr. Ward announced her candidacy for the United States Senate, challenging 34-year incumbent Sen. John McCain in the Republican primary in the 2016 election. Despite being outspent 10-to-1, Dr. Ward held Sen. McCain to his lowest historical primary total ever at 51 percent.
In October 2016, Dr. Ward announced that she would run against Sen. Jeff Flake, one of President Trump’s loudest critics in the U.S. Senate, who, after overwhelming opposition decided that because he could not beat Dr. Ward in the primary election, he would leave the Senate at the end of his term. Although Kelli lost the primary election in August 2018, she believes that all Republicans must continue to have a voice in the Republican Party. She remains active in Arizona politics and looks forward to helping bring consistent leadership that grows our party, reaches out to previously ignored communities and ensures Republican control of the Arizona Legislature, and Congress and the White House.
Please help us welcome Dr. Kelli Ward Chairman of the Arizona State Republican Party as our Guest speaker at the Grassroots Tea Party Activists. Dr. Kelli Ward, a true Activist in every sense of the word for the people of Arizona.
She has been a real fighter for true Republicans here in Arizona, spreading the word of who we are to be as Republicans, what we stand for, and who we stand for, a true Patriot fighting off the Establishment who continually are attempting to take control giving our State over to the Communist Left under the name of the ‘R’ for RINO.
