A new report from Politico reveals that “jittery” Republicans are asking President Trump to interfere in the Arizona Senate Republican primary “out of fear” that Congresswoman McSally’s lackluster campaign is hemorrhaging support — but so far even President Trump is “non-committal” about supporting her.
The report prompted Dr. Kelli Ward to slam Congresswoman McSally, the latest escalation in the divisive and nasty GOP primary that still has weeks to go and is dominating the race — here’s what they’re saying:
From Dr. Kelli Ward: “Amnesty @SenCoryGardner begging for @realDonaldTrump to endorse Martha McSally’s failing campaign won’t work. President Trump knows Arizona doesn’t want or need another weak, open borders #NeverTrump Senator like @JeffFlake or @SenJohnMcCain. #VoteWard #AZSEN”
From The Hill: “Ward responded to the Politico story on Twitter Friday, saying ‘Amnesty @SenCoryGardner begging for @realDonaldTrump to endorse Martha McSally’s failing campaign won’t work. President Trump knows Arizona doesn’t want or need another weak, open borders #NeverTrump Senator like @JeffFlake or @SenJohnMcCain. #VoteWard #AZSEN.’”
