Tempe, AZ – Dr. Kelli Ward of Arizona, candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement today on Democrat Rep. Kyrsten Sinema entering the race:
"Kyrsten Sinema's rhetoric does not match her record. Claiming she wants to 'change Washington' and 'make it work again' rings hollow considering she's had five years in Congress to do so and failed. Ms. Sinema has a history of reinventing herself for political gain and a track record of promising voters one thing and then delivering something different once she's in office."
"Ms. Sinema was the biggest proponent of Obamacare's passage and has voted against fixing it, despite the fact that it’s crippling Arizonans' access to quality healthcare. She has voted to support sanctuary cities and has opposed returning control to local education leaders. These are not votes that put 'country ahead of politics' as she claims, but instead, they reveal her belief that big government knows best, which is not what Arizonans want in Washington."
Dr. Kelli Ward is the only GOP candidate challenging Sen. Jeff Flake in his 2018 re-election bid in Arizona. On Aug. 17, President Trump lent his support to Ward via Twitter, personally naming her and encouraging the primary challenge of Sen. Flake, whom the President has referred to as "toxic." Ward’s campaign enjoyed a surge of national and in-state support and visibility after announcing the addition of two top operatives from the largest Pro-Trump super PAC, and a $300,000 contribution from Robert Mercer, one of the President’s largest donors, to an independent super PAC dedicated to supporting Ward’s candidacy.
