Tempe, AZ – The Ward for Senate campaign released today a new list of endorsements from state and local leaders in Arizona. The growing list is highlighted by backing Dr. Ward has received from former colleagues in the Arizona State Legislature.
“During her time in the Arizona State Senate, Kelli Ward was one of the strongest advocates for conservative values and principles,” said Arizona State Sen. Warren Petersen, R-Gilbert. “She was effective at passing legislation that bolstered Arizona's economy, added new jobs and decreased government bureaucracy. She spoke passionately in favor of smaller government, less regulation, simpler taxes and repealing Obamacare – all of which I'm confident she will continue to champion in the U.S. Senate. Washington, D.C. is in desperate need of capable, qualified people like Kelli Ward to advance the 'America First' agenda. I am proud to endorse her candidacy for U.S. Senate.”
Dr. Ward expressed gratitude and appreciation to those who endorsed her candidacy for U.S. Senate and offered their support to her campaign.
“I am extremely thankful to the growing list of leaders in Arizona who are endorsing my candidacy for U.S Senate, many of whom are former colleagues of mine in the legislature,” said Ward. “Together, we were able to pass effective, conservative legislation that improved the lives and freedoms of Arizonans. With the growing momentum of our campaign, I am excited to bring this same type of success to Washington as U.S. senator to benefit the American people.”

Dr. Kelli Ward is the leading GOP candidate to replace retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in the U.S. Senate in 2018. On Aug. 17, President Trump lent his support to Ward via Twitter. Ward has received national endorsements from Sen. Rand Paul, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Dick Morris and Steve Bannon. Ward’s campaign enjoyed a surge of national and in-state support and visibility after announcing the addition of former Ronald Reagan campaign manager, Ed Rollins, to the position of campaign chairman.
