• Rand Paul endorses Arizona's Kelli Ward

    BY BEN KAMISAR
    11/01/17

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is backing Republican Senate hopeful Kelli Ward's bid in Arizona, a decision that gives the campaign an important ally ahead of what will likely become a messy primary.

    Paul made the announcement Wednesday morning during an interview on Fox News, citing Ward's support during his presidential campaign and their shared work as physicians.

    "She's a thoughtful leader, somebody who is an outsider, not a career politician. I think she would make a great senator from Arizona," Paul said during an interview on "America's Newsroom."

    "Some people in the establishment have dumped on her and I'm out there to let people know that conservatives will unite behind Kelli Ward and I think she will have a great chance of being the next senator from Arizona."

    Ward responded to the endorsement with a tweet of her own.



    The former Arizona state lawmaker had been courting Paul's endorsement, chatting with the senator about her bid during a phone call last week.

      My first thought was WTF is Martha McSally? A quick search reveals her to be the establishment pick, which would explain why in a poll made up of purely hypothetical candidates, they excluded Joe Arpaio. It is a poll designed to give the Rove/McConnell pick a boost.

      Who paid for the poll?

      McSally is actually well known. She is an AZ rep in the House of Representative, a retired Air Force Colonel who constantly wears her military credentials on her sleeve. She thinks military spending should be increased, favors every sanction on Iran, Russia and North Korea, favors antagonizing those countries as well as China, supported the missile strike on Syria, a pawn to the MIC. No doubt she will be the establishment's preferred pick.

      Great, another John McCain. And Arizona voters have shown themselves time and again to be clueless zombies who vote for whatever neocon is presented to them.

      I'm all for Bannon's purge but what do you guys think about Ward's chance in the general election? One of the issues with the Tea Party movement is that we got a lot of people nominated who couldn't win general elections so it was kinda pointless in the end. Thoughts?

      Looks pretty status quo MIC type.

      from Ward's website:

      “I recently returned from a two-week trip to Israel and was inspired by the history of this great country and the resilient spirit of the Jewish people. The alliance that America shares with Israel can never be broken, and we should continue to strengthen the bonds that we share with our greatest friend and ally in the Middle East as all parties strive toward achieving lasting peace in the region.”
      Nevertheless, Dr. Ward does agree with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who has stressed that “years of stable budgets and increased funding” will be needed to restore American military readiness.
      Dr. Ward also supports improving America’s transportation security – including the security of air travel – through comprehensive reform of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) bureaucracy.

      Looks like McCain bodysnatched her.

      30 more years of neoconism in the Senate.

      Thus marks the end of my interest in Ward.

      Maiden name: Kelli Kaznoski

      Nuff said.

      Deeper reading looks like a Dem wearing the Republican mask. Switched on abortion in 2012 when she decided to run for office even. Now, it's the standard 'god n guns' stuff for the sheep.
