Lake Havasu City, AZ – Dr. Kelli Ward, an osteopathic physician and former state senator from Lake Havasu, today announced her candidacy for chairman of the Arizona Republican Party:
“The Party of Lincoln and Goldwater should be one that is led by the grassroots; unfortunately, over the last four years, the grassroots within the Republican Party have been silenced and disenfranchised both nationally and at the state level in Arizona.
Therefore, after much prayer and careful consideration, I have decided to run for chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. In this new era of Arizona Republican politics, it is time to finally unite our party.
The hard work begins today, and it starts with new leadership at the top that will work tirelessly to bring together all Republicans and usher in an overwhelming 2020 victory for our candidates at every level of government.”
Over the past six years, Ward has traveled the state meeting with tens of thousands of Arizonans, grassroots activists, and countless local Republican Party leaders. From Phoenix to Prescott, north to Flagstaff, south to Tucson, and to the farthest corners of the state, Ward has developed a reputation for communicating on a personal level with the hardworking people who call Arizona home.
The election of a new AZGOP Chairman will take place on January 26 and will be voted on by newly elected State Committeemen from every district or county committee.
Dr. Kelli Ward is an osteopathic physician and former Arizona State Senator from Lake Havasu City, AZ. During her tenure in the state legislature, Ward established a proven track record of working hand in hand with all Republicans to pass legislation that increased freedom, opportunity and prosperity for all Arizonans. Furthering her reputation as a unifying figure in Arizona Republican Party politics and despite being the target of untruthful and hurtful attacks, Ward stepped up to campaign on behalf of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Martha McSally. Kelli Ward cares deeply about the people of the great state of Arizona and looks forward to serving them as the Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party.
