Kelli Ward Takes Commanding Lead In AZ GOP Primary

Dr. Kelli Ward, the principled limited government constitutional conservative whose scrappy grassroots campaign forced incumbent RINO Senator Jeff Flake out of the Arizona Republican Senate Primary has taken a commanding lead over her Democratic and Republican rivals according to a poll first reported by DC news site The Hill.

However, even with Ward leading likely Democratic rival Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Senate Leadership Fund, which is run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s allies, has said it will do everything it can to ensure Dr. Kelli WardWard is not the next senator from Arizona, as the GOP establishment continues to try to recruit RINO Rep. Martha McSally as its preferred candidate to replace RINO Sen. Jeff Flake.

According to the poll conducted by the polling firm Revily, Ward takes 34 percent support, followed by Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) at 23 percent, former Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) at 8.75 percent, activist Craig Brittain at 3.7 percent and businessman Nicholas Tutura at 1.9 percent. Thirty-four percent said they are undecided.

“Dr. Kelli Ward has a commanding lead in the primary race,” Ward campaign chairman Ed Rollins said in a statement to The Hill. “With her nearest primary competitor nearly 11 points behind, the notion this would be a wide open race with other Republican candidates jumping in is flat out wrong. Ward is already consolidating the primary electorate and the writing is on the wall — Republican leaders in Washington and Arizona would be wise to get behind her at this point.”

In the general election, the survey found Ward taking 34.2 percent over Sinema, at 32.99 percent, with 32.8 percent undecided. Sinema edges Salmon by 2 points and McSally by 4 in the poll.

“Ward is also in the strongest position to keep the seat in Republican hands,” Rollins said according to reporting by The Hill. “She is the only candidate who defeats Kyrsten Sinema in a head-to-head match up, and her broad appeal will only increase as voters learn more about her.”

In an open letter to the GOP Senate leadership, Conservatives have already made it clear they want no part of a Martha McSally for Senate campaign.

“Our groups, representing millions of conservatives, write to oppose Martha McSally as a potential Republican nominee for the Arizona Senate race to replace retiring Senator Jeff Flake.

Martha McSally masquerades as a conservative on the campaign trail but time and time again, Rep. McSally has abandoned conservative principles.  When given the chance to lead, she instead chose to cower to special interests and the ways of Washington.

No matter which issue, ranging from economic to social to immigration, Rep. McSally’s voting record would leave you guessing she is a liberal.  For these reasons and more, we stand firmly together to oppose her candidacy.”

Here are a few comments from signers of the letter:

FreedomWorks for America: “Martha McSally is part of the problem.  She has an anemic 61% on FreedomWorks PAC.  If elected to the Senate, she will undermine the conservative agenda to expand freedom and limit the size of government.” – Adam Brandon, President

Senate Conservatives Fund: Representative McSally has a very liberal voting record. She has supported budget-busting spending bills, more debt, corporate welfare, and taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and amnesty. Voters in Arizona want to replace Senator Flake with a strong conservative who will fight to drain the swamp in Washington. Martha McSally will do the opposite. – Ken Cuccinelli, President  

Club for Growth PAC: “McSally has a 59% lifetime rating on the Club’s scorecard.  Among other things, she actively fought full repeal of Obamacare.  She voted to increase the debt ceiling twice.  She voted to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, and she was even one of seven Republicans to support the Obama Phone program.” – David McIntosh, President

Erick Erickson, "Rep. McSally was one of the few Republicans who Barack Obama could routinely depend upon over the past few years.  She helped him expand his government and gave him a blank check to raise the debt ceiling.  We don’t need more people like that in the Senate.”

Eagle Forum: Rep. Martha McSally is not an ally to the families that Eagle Forum represents.  She supports drafting women into the military and giving them combat roles, voted for special protections for the LGBT community, and has allowed illegal immigrants to continue their stay on the taxpayer's dime.  For these reasons, we strongly oppose Rep. McSally's run for Senate. – Anne Schlafly Cori, Chairman “Martha McSally is a member of the RINO "Tuesday Group" that has obstructed President Trump's agenda from within the House Republican Conference, she should not be sent to the Senate to take up where Jeff Flake left off.” – George Rasley

McSally is not our woman!

Look at the details of her voting record. In a limited study I found that she voted 10 out of 23 times in support of the Democrat position.

Establishment RINOs

The public vote should oust ALL of these establishment RINOs who are intent on bankrupting the country and giving the United States over to the New World Order.
