Guest in studio interview – Dr. Kelli Ward, Candidate for US Senate from Arizona
Wife, mom, doctor, senator – Kelli Ward has a lot to be proud of. From humble beginnings as a coal miner’s granddaughter in West Virginia, Dr. Kelli Ward is a graduate of Duke University, the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, and A.T. Still University. While in medical school, she met her husband Michael, an emergency physician who has served for over 33 years in the US Air Force and Air National Guard. In 1999 they moved to Lake Havasu City, Arizona where they built their family and their businesses.
Kelli entered politics by running for a seat in the Arizona State Senate in her effort to defeat Obamacare. After winning a tough primary election in 2012, she was unopposed when running for reelection in 2014. While serving in office, she continued to practice medicine in the emergency departments in Lake Havasu City and Kingman, Arizona.
During her time in office, she sponsored legislation that enabled small businesses in Arizona to thrive, protected our second amendment, decreased the size of government by consolidating redundant departments, and protected vulnerable students in our schools. In her last year in office, nineteen of her bills were signed into law.
Noted as the most conservative member of the Arizona State Senate, in 2015 she announced her candidacy for the United States Senate against 34-year incumbent John McCain in the Republican primary in the 2016 election. Despite being outspent 10 to 1, Kelli held McCain to his lowest historical primary total ever at 51%.
In October 2016, Kelli announced that she would challenge Republican Senator Jeff Flake, one of President Trump’s biggest foes, in the 2018 primary election. Senator Flake subsequently announced he would not seek re-election in 2018, leaving Dr. Ward as the leading conservative candidate to replace him. Congresswoman Martha McSally and former Sheriff Joe Arpaio have since joined the race, which will be decided in the Arizona primary on August 28, 2018.
