Dr. Kelli Ward is a big deal in Republican politics in Arizona.

She served three years in the state senate and has been the head of the Arizona State Republican Party since 2019.

Taking The MAGA Message On The Road To Yakima

She's a MAGA brand of politician who resigned from the state senate to run against John McCain in the 2016 primary and lost by a significant margin. Ward also ran and lost to Senate candidate Martha McSally for Jeff Flake's former seat. A couple of high profile losses like that might have taken the wind out of the sails of another candidate but the experience seemed to generate a new kind of wind that fans the flames of her passion, enthusiasm, and political activism and she is now on the road in support of promising Republican candidates around the country.
