    Failed U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward, a conservative firebrand, will lead the Arizona Republican Party through the 2020 election. In a contentious three-way race for AZGOP chair, Ward came out on top Saturday, defeating incumbent chairman Jonathan Lines. Meanwhile, Arizona Democrats opted to retain their party chairwoman, Felecia Rotellini to another two-year term. Republican losses in the 2018 election were a common refrain throughout the AZGOP state committee meeting Saturday at Phoenix’s Church for the Nations. Prior to the election, Republicans held all statewide elected offices, a majority of the congressional seats and majorities in both chambers of the Legislature....

    Houston Chronicle ^ | 11/08/2018 | David Wood
    On July 31, the Houston Chronicle published a front-page story with a provocative headline. "'We've moved on': Political anger after Harvey has eased," it declared, adding: "Experts believe disaster response is unlikely to be a factor in November." It was a significant story by veteran reporter and Austin bureau chief Mike Ward. It asserted that Houston residents initially fed up with the uneven government response to Hurricane Harvey actually weren't going to blame politicians after all. The story began with West Houston resident Betsy Scheer, whose anger had faded. She was going to vote Republican. "My friends are mostly the...

    Lou Dobbs makes Arizona’s female version of Jeff Flake look like the RINO she is. KellyAnne Conway on Fox right now saying Trump endorsed her. No he didn’t. McTurtle and establishment money won the race for her. It was also a forgone conclusion she would win when Arpaio jumped in the race to siphon votes away from Ward. Of course Ward didn’t help herself in the end, but that was reallly immaterial. CNN already grinning ear-to-ear calling her a foe of the president and that she “beat back’ two “extreme hard-right candidates” for the win.

    Dr. Kelli Ward had a campaign appearance in Yuma on Saturday night, the 25th of August, for the Republican primary for the Senate. Yuma was the last stop at the end of a whirlwind bus tour around the state. I was able to attend and ask Dr. Ward a question about gun issues beyond the usual "I support the Second Amendment" boilerplate. I arrived before 6 p.m. I ran into many of the local political activists. It was clear Dr. Ward was getting much more attention than she had in 2016. I had attended a similar rally in 2016,...

    A lawyer for Arizona candidate for U.S. Senate Martha McSally threatened to “pursue legal remedies” against cable television stations running a statewide ad supporting competing Senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward, but station managers refused to pull the ad. The Kelli PAC television ad criticizes Rep. McSally’s statements against then-candidate Donald Trump’s immigration and border plans and her low House voting record score from conservative group Freedom Works.

    There is no love lost between state Sen. Kelli Ward and Rep. Martha McSally, the two top Arizona Republicans vying to represent the party in November's Senate election. But their race has grown so contentious roughly a month before Republican voters pick their nominee that Ward, who's challenging McSally from the right, is making the case that it would be "disingenuous" for her to support McSally should the sitting congresswoman win the nomination. Arizona is one of the few states where Democrats believe they are in a position to flip a Senate seat this fall. Arizona narrowly backed President Donald...

    PHOENIX – Sen. Rand Paul will join Dr. Kelli Ward and her supporters in a joint rally in Scottsdale later this month, according to a release. The event is being held to support Ward’s candidacy to replace Sen. Jeff Flake in Senate, who announced in October that he would retire and not seek re-election in the upcoming Republican primary. Paul’s involvement in the rally will be his latest show of support for Ward, who has also been recognized by President Donald Trump on Twitter.

    FULL TITLE:Kelli Ward: Ronald Reagan’s Biggest Regret Was Granting Amnesty and Trusting Congress on Border Security “President Reagan’s biggest regret as president was granting amnesty and then trusting Congress to deliver on border security,” said 2018 Republican Senate candidate Kelli Ward, expressing opposition to the White House’s recently released amnesty proposal. Ward’s comments came in an interview with Breitbart News’s Washington Political Editor Matt Boyle on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday. “We have to learn from our history,” advised Ward. “In 1986, Ronald Reagan–great president, amazing conservative, lover of liberty and of America–granted amnesty; and Ed Rollins, who is helping me...

    Former Maricopa County, Ariz. Sheriff Joe Arpaio told The Daily Beast Thursday that he is “seriously, seriously, seriously considering running for the U.S. Senate” to replace the retiring Jeff Flake. The Daily Beast reached out to Arpaio shortly after Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., announced his resignation over discussions with two female staffers about whether they would consider being a surrogate mother. […] Should Arpaio enter the race, he would be joining a crowded Republican primary field that includes Rep. Martha McSally and former state senator Kelli Ward. Ward, who was leading Flake by 26 points in one poll taken before...

    A team manning a deep sea research vessel says it has found and captured the first underwater images of a sunken U.S. Navy ship credited with firing America’s opening shots of World War II. The USS Ward was located in the waters near Ponson Island in the Philippines, an expedition crew led by Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Paul Allen announced, just before the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    Rep. Martha McSally appears poised to challenge Kelli Ward in what would be a vicious primary fight for Jeff Flake’s Senate seat, but President Donald Trump remains a major wild card. Rep. Martha McSally is taking steps toward launching a challenge to Kelli Ward for Sen. Jeff Flake's seat next year, a move that would set up another scorched-earth primary battle between establishment Republicans and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. The second-term congresswoman indicated her interest in the seat during a closed-door meeting Thursday with Arizona's five-member GOP House delegation, and also met Thursday with Sen. John McCain...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) attended a fundraiser for Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) on Monday in a bid to support his 2018 Senate reelection campaign against challenger Kelli Ward.

    Good morning, I’m still reporting on: Sen. Flake Losing to Dr Kelli Ward, 1770 Synopsis: Never-Trumper Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona will face a significant primary challenge one year from yesterday, Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018. Flake, who has low popularity in Arizona due to his very liberal immigration stance as well as his opposition to all things Trump, is now being walloped in the latest poll by osteopath Kelli Ward. In a sampling of 500 likely Republican households by JMC analytics, Flake trailed Dr. Ward by a 26-point margin – 21 to 47 for Ward with 29% undecided. An astounding...

    Kelli Ward, who is challenging Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in the Republican primary, took aim at Flake and Sen. John McCain in a new campaign ad using President Trump's his criticisms of the two senators. The 45-second ad, titled "Naming Jeff Flake," opens with Trump speaking at Tuesday's campaign-style rally in Phoenix and telling the crowd his White House aides urged him not to attack Flake by name.

    The news just keeps getting worse for Jeff 'The Flake' as a new poll shows him trailing Kelli Ward by 14 points. Flake, who voted for Evan McMullin in the 2016 election, only accomplishment as a senator was to push for amnesty as a member of the 'gang of eight'. Flake has spent the last couple of months trying to sell his new book by going on liberal networks to bash the president. Flake siding with Hillary Clinton, Obama, and the democrats on gun control, open borders, on the supreme court, and on unbridled free trade has shown Arizona republicans...
