Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul campaigned Friday for Dr. Kelli Ward, who is running for Senate in Arizona, and suggested that the race is really part of a “battle” between conservatives and establishment.
Paul addressed Ward’s supporters at a rally in Scottsdale, telling them that she is a “constitutional conservative” who “will not be afraid of the establishment, and they will not boss her around.”
“You’ve got on them running in your Senate primary,” he added referring to McSally, “and that’s why if you elect the establishment candidate you’re going to get more of the same.”
But that’s not true of Ward, Paul said.
“You need someone with the courage of her convictions. Dr. Ward, I believe with all of my being, will go up there and she will not be afraid of the establishment, and they will not toss her around and they will not tell her what to do,” he stated.
