EJ Montini, one of the Arizona Republic’s most outspoken political columnists wrote an article this weekend called “McCain will win in November, count on it.” In the article Montini says Senator John McCain will, “defeat ‘tea party’ darling Kelli Ward and then he’ll defeat Ann Kirkpatrick.” Montini adds that McCain is “a survivor,” and is ready to fight for his U.S. Senate seat.
This is a big deal because EJ Montini is no fan of McCain and he’d probably prefer Kirkpatrick. But even the liberal AZ Republic understands what Kelli Ward does not. That her failed campaign and isolationism aren’t want people want in these dangerous times.
To our readers: We implore you to understand how important it is for Arizona to re-elect Senator John McCain both in the Republican Primary and in the general election.
Kelli Ward is outright dangerous, folks. She has built her campaign around associating herself with people such as Cliven Bundy, Ron Paul, and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Recently the progressive news site Mother Jones said the following about Ward:
“In her short political career, Ward has flirted with the conspiracy-theory fringe by making appearances on 9/11 truther radio programs, advising citizens to stay vigilant against UN helicopters, warning against government “indoctrination,” and proposing an unusual theory that the Affordable Care Act was part of a plot to force rural residents to move to cities.”
The left would love nothing more than to run a campaign against a conspiracy theorist during a time when people want stability and security. Kelli is further to the left on national security than Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
This is not the time to take chances with our national leadership. This is not the time to take chances with our safety, our security, and our conservative Republican majority in the United States Senate. This is why Senator McCain is the one and only option this August and November.
