Flake said he's focused on running his campaign and not anxious about what the president might do to influence the primary election in 2018.
From January 2013 to December 2015, Ward, a practicing physician, served as an Arizona state senator from the state's 5th district. One of the things that really bothers me about that is I know that there are families who want to bring their children to see the President of the United States in person.
The Arizona state senator stated that she has a track record of doing what she promises in the state senate, and said that will not change. The ad calls out Flake for the anti-Trump remarks that the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign used in an anti-Trump campaign ad. She also said McCain was directly responsible for the ISIS terror organization.
While in the Arizona state legislature, she tried to outlaw enforcement of federal gun laws in Arizona. "No wonder Arizona Republicans rejected her just one year ago". There are plenty of people who cross our border every single month every single week who are coming here to do us harm.
Kelli Ward on Senator Flake calling illegals are American's by choice who are inspiring.
Tom Savage Named Texans' Starting QB Over Deshaun Watson
While not an overly gifted arm talent, Watson does check boxes for playmaking ability and poise. Deshaun Watson has been getting some first-team reps, but Savage has maintained a practice lead.
Some establishment Republicans are panicked that if Ward wins the primary, she will have little appeal beyond Republican base voters, and risk the chance of losing the seat to Democrats, particularly if openly bisexual U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) runs for higher office.
Trump slammed Flake on Twitter last Thursday for being "weak on borders, crime" and for being a "non-factor in the Senate" and praised Dr. Kelli Ward for running against him. In his recent book, "Conscience of a Conservative", Flake compared Trump's campaign to a "late-night infomercial" with an agenda that is "free of significant thought".
Although Flake has generally sided with Trump and the Republicans on Senate votes, he has been vocal about his criticism of the President. It came after Trump, in a tweet after the Phoenix event was announced, called Flake "toxic".
