Dr. Kelli Ward is someone who has many titles, but a career politician is not among them. She is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, a military wife, and a former Arizona State Senator. However, most importantly, she is a voice of the people. People like her because she is willing to have a one-on-one conversation with you, and get to know you on a personal level.
On Saturday, March 11th, 2017, Dr. Ward was at the Arizona State Republican Executive Committee Meeting where a fellow Republican had a heart problem arise. Dr. Kelli Ward and her husband Dr. Michael Ward, Colonel, USAF came to the rescue of the man without hesitation. They provided medical support until the City of Yuma Fire Department could arrive on the scene to help the patient. The selfless actions of Dr. Kelli Ward, not only stabilized the patient so that he could be transported to the hospital, but they personally moved his car to the hospital and reported his progress to his family.
This is just one instance in which Dr. Kelli Ward has changed lives. As a State Senator, Kelli Ward served in many different capacities; gaining her a lot of experience in many different areas. She has served on the appropriations, health and human services, and public safety, military, and technology committees. Senator Ward was the chair of the education committee. During her tenure as a state senator, she fought for those with disabilities, law enforcement officers and the military, and public servants.
She is running against Incumbent Senator Jeff Flake. As a member of the US House of Representatives in 2000, Senator Flake pledged to the people that he would serve no longer than three terms in congress. He subsequently broke that promise in 2006 when he said he would continue to run. Flake, along with Senator John McCain, has supported legalizing illegal immigrants without going through the proper channels. Which, of course, goes against the Republican Party. In 2006, Flake changed his position on Iraq in which he became very cautious of opposition. This created a sense of uncertainty in his ability to keep his word. Senator Flake has proven time and time again that he is untrustworthy, willing to turn against his people, and that he is unstable on his positions. He has officially replaced Mitch McConnell as the most unpopular Senator in the country.
Dr. Kelli Ward is clearly the superior choice for Senator in 2018. She is an honorable, trustworthy woman who advocates for the people of Arizona, as well as for the people of the United States. She is willing to fight when things get difficult because she believes in this country, its traditions, and its values. Dr. Ward is not only a conservative but she is a patriot.
