The nationally known Iowa congressman adds his name to an expanding list of Constitutional conservatives supporting Ward’s campaign
Tempe, AZ – Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) today announced his endorsement of Dr. Kelli Ward in the Arizona 2018 GOP primary for U.S. Senate. Rep. King has been a champion for conservative causes in Congress for more than a decade, and is renowned for taking a strong stance against illegal immigration.
“Dr. Ward will be a fighter for America First policies that prioritize the safety, security, and well-being of the American people,” said King. “We don’t need any more senators who will go to Washington and compromise on the promises that they made to the voters who elected them. We need principled, conservative representatives who will be smart on enforcing border security and cracking down on illegal immigration. I am confident that Dr. Ward is that candidate, and I am proud to endorse her candidacy for U.S. Senate.”
King was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2002, and has since been a leading voice on illegal immigration, Second Amendment rights, pro-life legislation, lowering taxes, and building a wall across our southern border. He is a member on the House Judiciary Committee, the House Small Business Committee, and the House Agriculture Committee. King also chairs the Conservative Opportunity Society, a powerful and legendary House caucus that has become the conscience of Constitutional conservatives in the U.S. Congress.
“I am honored to receive Rep. King’s endorsement and support,” said Ward. “Rep. King believes, as I do, that our country’s safety and security depend on how effectively we secure our borders. I look forward to working hand in hand with Rep. King in Washington to strengthen our national security, as well as solve other vital legislative issues like fixing our healthcare system, securing our border, rebuilding our military, and reducing our national debt.”
Dr. Kelli Ward is a leading GOP candidate to replace retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in the U.S. Senate in 2018. On Aug. 17, President Trump encouraged Ward’s campaign via Twitter. Ward has received endorsements from several national conservative leaders including U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin. Ward’s campaign has an unmatched grassroots network across Arizona and has continued to grow and expand national and in-state support.
